A recent WSJ article said that Penn St was "one of only four major-conference athletic programs never to have been sanctioned for major violations." Anyone know what the other 3 schools are?

I don't know who they are, but if true, it is telling. That means that some pretty high ranking academic institutions were sanctioned (Northwestern, Vanderbilt, Duke, Stanford, UVA, etc.) I think this says more about how petty the NCAA can be than anything.

Wrong on Stanford... Northwestern is another... Won't give up the last because it makes me puke.

How about the BC point-shaving scandal? Or was that not under the scope of the NCAA?

WSJ is wrong, wrong, wrong again. That article is full of wrong. The two schools are Penn State and Stanford. Guess which school was the last to drop off? You'll never guess!! It was----------------------UConn.

During the Nate Miles fiasco, there was an article that listed sanctions for ever single BCS school except for PSU, UConn and Stanford.

"Two of the schools on the innocents list, Boston College and Northwestern, have had players sentenced to jail time for their part in point-shaving scandals. Penn State's football team had a spate of player misbehavior around 2003 with at least 10 players getting arrested or being disciplined."

"Three of the four innocents from major conferences (Boston College, Northwestern and Stanford) have a built-in advantage: As private schools, they're not required to comply with the Freedom of Information Act—a tool reporters have used to uncover wrongdoing at some public institutions."
