DETROIT - News from Monday's NCAA ruling against Penn State University created reactions throughout the country and the football community.
Former University of Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr weighed in on his former coaching foe, and fellow College Football Hall of Famer, Joe Paterno.
"His legacy has been severely damaged," Carr said.
Carr coached against Paterno from 1995-2007. He trumped the Penn State coach nine straight times between 1997-2007.
"All of us, our major feelings, go to the victims. But there's also some personal tragedies in this thing. There's no winners," Carr said.
The former Michigan coach spent the day at Detroit Golf Club, supporting the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl and the annual MAC football media day, scheduled for Tuesday at Ford Field.
He was on the course while the sanctions were announced. When he was brought up to speed about the ruling, Carr simply reacted: "Oh my."
Penn State football was all but dismantled Monday by an NCAA ruling that wiped away 14 years of coach Joe Paterno's victories and imposed a mountain of fines and penalties, crippling a program whose pedophile assistant coach spent years molesting children, sometimes on school property.
