Penn State Scandal: NCAA To Announce 'Unprecedented' Penalties Against PSU On Monday

Before things get better sometimes they need to get worse. That's what the Penn State University and its football program will probably encounter Monday morning, when the NCAA is expected to announce "unprecedented penalties" against PSU, a source told CBSNews.com on Sunday.

"I've never seen anything like it," the source told correspondent Armen Keteyian.

NCAA President Mark Emmert will make the announcement Monday morning at 9 a.m. at the organization's headquarters in Indianapolis.

Bryan Fischer, a college writer for CBSSports.com, is reporting the news conference is to announce "corrective and punitive measures" against PSU.

This news comes in the wake of the university's President Rodney Erickson announcing the statue of former head coach Joe Paterno, which is located outside Beaver Stadium, would be removed and placed in a secure location. According to an independent investigation done by former FBI Director Louis Freeh, Paterno was involved in a cover-up of child sexual abuse charges surrounding former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.
