This week the NCAA lifted sanctions against the Penn State football program put on them as a result of the Sandusky situation. After two years of meaningless games the NCAA reinstated the Nittany Lions making them Bowl eligible this year. Siting the swift and concentrated work Penn State did to clean house and return themselves into proud program. The NCAA also lifted all restrictions on scholarships. This has instantly returned the all important happiness to Happy Valley.
However what does this do for the Big Ten?
After a devastating Saturday watching perennial powerhouses Michigan, Ohio State, Purdue and Michigan State loose, fans of the Big Ten must have been in a daze. Then to hear on Monday that the 2 -0 Nittany Lions are now once again eligible to win a Big Ten title only made matters more interesting.
Tuesday on 990WBOB.com's LIVE Podcast Psycho Sports I welcomed from PennLive.com writer Audrey Snyder. Together we discussed how Penn State can impact the conference and realistically contend this season for a Big Ten title. Snyder also weighed in on how the sanctions being lifted will help the school's recruiting. Snyder also gives our audience a fair look as to how Penn State got back in the NCAA's good graces.
