75. I say arrest all 44,817 of them then.
But then I bet you know they didn't ALL participate, right? Not all of them are football players, but then again I bet you knew that too. In fact, the percentage of the student body that participates in ANY sport is rather small.

I will not defend Joe Paterno, Penn State Football, or anything else. But to want the entire university closed "right the fuck now" for the extremely bad actions of a few is ridiculous and over the top.
