Bit of breaking news this morning. Due to continued progress the executive committee of the NCAA is going to gradually restore Penn State's football scholarships. Via the NCAA:

Beginning next academic year (2014-15), five additional initial scholarships will be restored to the university’s football team. This amount will continue to increase until they reach the full allocation of 25 initial in 2015-16 and 85 total football scholarships in 2016-17.

Could the bowl ban also be lifted next? Guess we'll see.
