Penn State Fined $60 Million, Paterno Wins Vacated Since 1998

If you are invested in Penn State's punishment, are the imposition of these sanctions enough or does the team have to lose while they are in effect?

I hardly ever wish ill on people participating in sports -- even pro teams with obnoxious players I don't like , I don't want to see them lose as much as I want others to win. Even in this instance, where it does feel the losing is part of a (deserved_ punishment, a part of me couldn't help but be happy if some 'leftover' athletes were able to win humbly* at Penn State after playing their heart out and proved that even without those scholarships and the NCAA's blessing and the almighty Paterno and under the darkest of dark spots, they could win.

I wouldn't take ANY odds on that actually happening. But if it did, it would be the feel good story I'd feel worst about.

* I'm pretty sure some fan reaction would make me angry enough for this to not be a question and I'd be able to get back up on my high horse no problem.
