Former New York Giant Tiki Barber says NCAA sanctions are 'harsh'

Tiki Barber, a former New York Giants running back weighs in on the NCAA's recent announcement to impose sanctions against Penn State.

Barber says, "I think the NCAA is trying to take steps to where the NFL is...where if you get situations like this, you come down as hard as possible to set an example." Barber went on to say whether the sanctions will work or not has yet to be seen.

Barber spoke with CNN Early Start's John Berman about his belief that “a lot of sanctions like this are going to start happening around the NCAA because violations happen frequently."
