Two U.S. Congressmen Want Penn State’s Scholarships Back

Multiple outlets are reporting that U.S. Representatives Charlie Dent (R) (PA-15) , and co-writer Congressman Glenn Thompson (R) (PA-5) have filed a letter to Mark Emmert and the NCAA with a specific focus to restore the 40 scholarships taken from Penn State as included in the July sanctions levied against the university.

“I want to make it clear to the NCAA who they are really hurting with this scholarship reduction. It’s not Jerry Sandusky and it’s not the University,”  Dent said on his official Facebook Page. “They are hurting young people who are completely innocent of anything relating to the Sandusky situation and who through no fault of their own are being denied a chance to get a great education.”

“They are hurting young people who are completely innocent of anything relating to the Sandusky situation and who through no fault of their own are being denied a chance to get a great education.”

This isn’t the first time that Dent has expressed his displeasure with the NCAA. In fact, just last month Dent called Mark Emmert’s decision to use most of Penn State’s NCAA fine money for causes out of Pennsylvania “unacceptable and unsatisfactory.
