Meh, it's an empty symbolic gesture. The team won those games, the players won those games. It's meant to take down Paterno's records, but I just don't see it as a good punishment. I'm OK with the overall sanction package, I think it was necessary. The NCAA had no choice, they had to hit them hard.
