Big Ten announces 6-year partnership with ESPN and Fox Sports

Big Ten announces 6-year partnership with ESPN and Fox Sports”

Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany believes that Penn State is "on the other side" of a hard journey five years after the NCAA and conference levied unprecedented sanctions on the program as a result of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal. "We need to embrace Penn State".

Sunday was the five-year anniversary of the sanctions - which included a four-year bowl ban, a $60 million fine and reduced scholarships - that were announced by NCAA president Mark Emmert. The Lions, of course, came through the trying times with a program ready to compete, as it did a year ago en route to a Big Ten title.

ESPN college football expert Phil Steele says that while MI is capable of winning the East Division and the Big Ten championship, he still predicts a third-place finish for the Wolverines in the division.

Delany said he believes that case must be decided in the courts. He says Penn State will finish second in the division, followed by Michigan, Indiana, Michigan State, Maryland and Rutgers.

"My first thought was we need to get through this", Delany reflected on Monday.

"You can debate (the sanctions) all you want, but in my view (the NCAA) had moral authority and responsibility to act as did the Big Ten".

"It's been a hard, difficult road for the institution, for the [athletic] department, for the friends and for the Paterno family", Delany said. He called Penn State's football resurgence "maybe the least important" part of the last five years and said coach James Franklin has "done an unbelievable job". "... Their football team is now healthy after coming through teh sanctions over the last five years under their great leadership, great players, and we're very happy that they have gotten to the other side".

"I think that case will be worked out". "But I think we're on the other side".
