Saban: Tax Penn State athletics to benefit child abuse victims

CBSSports.com wire reports

HOOVER, Ala. -- Nick Saban says one option to address the Penn State tragedy might be a ticket tax on athletic events and giving the proceeds to child abuse funds.

The Alabama coach didn't go into details Thursday of how a tax would be implemented, but said such a move to benefit victims would have a positive affect rather than punishing those who didn't have anything to do with the Jerry Sandusky case.

Saban says the Sandusky child sex abuse case and Penn State fallout "is a very, very criminal case that probably reflects poorly on a lot of folks."

He says his feelings are too raw to express publicly. But Saban says the focus should be on "what do we need to do to make it better."
