Congressmen ask NCAA to restore scholarships

Posted: January 29, 2013

Two Pennsylvania congressmen have asked the NCAA to restore football scholarships taken away from Pennsylvania State University as part of sanctions for the child sex-abuse scandal involving retired assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

Reps. Charles Dent (R., Lehigh) and Glenn Thompson (R., Centre) wrote Monday to NCAA president Mark Emmert that taking away up to 40 scholarships harmed players who had nothing to do with the scandal. - AP
