Taking a break from the Miami mess, now is a good a time as any to remind everyone that the NCAA is still battling the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania over Penn State’s $60 million fine.
As you may recall from last month, Pennsylvania lawmakers pushed to keep PSU’s fine, which came as part of the NCAA’s sanctions against the program following the Jerry Sandusky scandal, spent within state borders.
On Wednesday, the NCAA filed suit directed at Gov. Tom Corbett (pictured) and all PA lawmakers backing the bill. The suit claims keeping the proceeds in-state “would violate the U.S. Constitution… [and] disrupt interstate commerce.”
John Infante of the Bylaw Blog has a good recap of why the NCAA is pursuing this route.
