CSN, CSNChicago.com to air NCAA press conference on Penn State

The NCAA came forward Sunday to say that it will levy "corrective and punitive measures" against Penn State University.

The sanctions will be spelled out Monday at 8:00 a.m. and Comcast SportsNet will interrupt its regularly-scheduled programming to carry the press conference LIVE.

It will also be available streaming LIVE on CSNChicago.com by clicking here.

If early indications are true, Monday's press conference could bring historic news and discipline to Penn State for their actions in the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Last week, NCAA President Mark Emmert said he hasn't ruled out the possibility of shutting down the Penn State football program in the wake of the scandal, saying he had "never seen anything as egregious."

According to a CBSSports.com report, a source said Penn State will face "unprecedented" penalties, which could be so unique and severe that they would be different than any ever levied by the NCAA.

"I've never seen anything like it," the source said.

One penalty is believed to be a fine in the range of 30-60 million.

PHILADELPHIA — Before their own lives transform, a select group NFL Draft prospects spent time changing the lives of others on Wednesday.

At Philadelphia's Shriners Hospital for Children, prospects Jamal Adams, Leonard Fournette, Solomon Thomas, Mitchell Trubisky and Deshaun Watson took part in the NFL’s Play 60 program, which encourages kids of all types to be active for at least 60 minutes a day.

For 90 years, Shriners Hospitals — with 22 worldwide locations — have specialized in pediatric care, treating orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries as well as cleft lip and palate.

During Wednesday's event, kids took on players in everything from air hockey to foosball.
