Penn State finally is moving on after the Jerry Sandusky, and the athletic department informed they were given the opportunity to play for a bowl game this season as the NCAA lifted sanctions from two years ago, including a four-year postseason ban.

“I believe that the university should be able to move forward positively, based on everything they have done,” Tom Kline, a lawyer who negotiated a settlement with Penn State for one of the eight victims said. “Lifting the sanctions is something that is earned, deserved and is a correct decision.”

The Lions football program will also have the opportunity to start recruiting big time athletes for the upcoming seasons as they are allowed to have the full complement of football scholarships in 2015.

“We are all in debt to them,” first-year coach James Franklin said Tuesday. “We’re going to play for them because they were here for this program and this university when we needed them most.”

“There is enthusiasm, and there is excitement and there is tremendous pride in this school and part of the healing that’s taking place and moving forward,” Franklin said. “I think this is part of it.”

Penn State is grateful to head coach Bill O’Brien, who is now in the NFL with the Houston Texans, because he was the only one who wanted a coaching job in a dead place.

Nittany Lion coach James Franklin has generated national headlines with his top-five recruiting class and his ability to dominate in the Northeast.
