NCAA will have to wait its turn to investigate Penn State scandal

Article 2.1 of the NCAA's constitution is a slippery, nebulous passage of college athletics' rulebook that holds schools accountable for all sorts of sins under the auspices of "institutional control." The NCAA appears open to using it to mete out punishment. And while precise language addressing a situation like Penn State University's child sex abuse scandal appears nowhere in the rulebook, the NCAA appears open to using Article 2.1 to mete out punishment — even though it appears no underlying NCAA rules were broken.
