fark Penn St. and all their farktard fans. It's just a game, you mongoloids. Kids were raped, if you're going to use the 9/11 analogy,use it right. These kids' anus were the tower and sandusky's cock was the plane.

dletter: I'm not going to fall into the trap of saying this is how every Penn St. alum and fan feels or would express themselves.

I will just say that this guy is a total dick.


This alum thanks you and agrees that the guy in the article is a total dick.

Not that I agree with how the sanctioning was handled, but it's just a farking game. The reactions of some of these students really piss me off. Get your education, get drunk at the bars, bang some girls (or guys if that's your thing) and move on with life.

stoli n coke: puffy999: doglover: This would be like throwing the man's whole social circle and their families in jail because of what the man, who was already in jail, did fourteen years ago.

None of you care about Grahm Spanier, the other two administrators, or the victims. You just can't stand it that Penn State won football games, now all you can think of is Joe Pa and football. Newsflash assholes, this isn't about football. This is Penn Staters reacting negatively to being demonized for shiat they couldn't have been involved in. 20 kids are gonna lose their scholarships for shiat that happened when they were 5 and 6 years old.

And where are the victims' funds in all this? Where are the people trying to locate and help these kids? Nowhere, because all you want is to destroy. You'd trample the victims to get close enough to huck an egg at a picture of a dead football coach because you're nothing but a blood thirsty mob with.

Don't attempt to be rational when people have their pitchforks. Usually you just end up getting stabbed.

SMU was given a 3 year death penalty because the higher ups knew players were taking money under the table and did nothing.

The higher-ups at Penn State knew one of their coaching staff had commited multiple felonies against children and did nothing for more than a decade.

Through their silence, they showed they lack the integrity to be considered a respected organization.

As for the 10 scholarships (only 10. During SMU's punishment, they weren't allowed to give out ANY athletic scholarships), those players will likely get picked up by another school, even if it is Division II.

Something tells me the 10 kids that will get the boot won't be that high on the depth chart anyway, so a future in the NFL was probably unlikely already.


Don't try to be rational when people are blindly defending the cover up of child rape.

Football isn't really the problem I have. It is the God that JoePa was considered by these people.

I grew up in Lexington, I know about the religion that is college sports, but the name on the front of the jersey is what is important. The coaches come and go. The man brought shame to your institution so the defense of him is what is mind numbing.

Bigger Leftist Intarweb Schlong: IlGreven: puffy999: Forgot to add: that's a good point regarding the SMU situation. And they're STILL mad about it...

Even though there are some pissed off people at Penn State, at least these accusations are so heinous that people likely won't go as far as SMU's apologists do (or, say, Alabama's boosters will go to oust a coach or Auburn's boosters will go to pay a player).

Yep. SMU people still defend the actual acts that got them death penaltied. Same with USC and Ohio State. Hell, even Florida A&M students defend the hazing that led to that band member's death even now.

You won't hear even the most strident Joe Paterno supporter directly defend child rape. Even those that truly don't know what supporting Paterno even now means...not one will say "Eh, it's just child rape, what the fark's the big deal?" (They will say "Why are you punishing us when it's Jerry Sandusky who did it?" but that's a different argument, and anyone trying to conflate the two is just as deluded as they are.)

Not really.

These people are vile.

The only mob Ive seen laying down mob justice were rioters at Penn State taking out a news van for daring to try to report bad things about JoePa from happy valley.

The scholarship reduction applies to incoming recruits. The current players were given the option to transfer without sitting out a year, play for Penn State or continue their education on scholarship without playing. But don't let facts get in the way of your whargarble.

dave2198: BigJake: dave2198: To extend it one step further, people are borrowing out the ass, and mortgaging their futures, to go to expensive schools based solely on their love for sports.

Precious few of those schools are expensive, at least relatively speaking (Duke is, USC is, but there are few private schools in those ranks.)

dave2198: This athletic culture is responsible in no small part for many of the problems we have in higher education.

That is flatly nonsense. Even at football factories the football programs' revenues are a VERY small slice of those institutions' budgets and personnel, and at those same schools, rarely if ever a net drain.

State schools can be expensive, especially if you live out-of-state. If your family lives in Georgia, and you love 'Bama football, you can expect to pay $15k per semester.


Anyone dumb enough to pick a college based on their sports affiliation should either suffer the consequences of paying that much or just not be given loans in the first place.

But if you actually look at the facts, you may conclude that the punishment is reasonable and even makes a lot of sense.

My personal favorite new narrative is "They're jealous of our football success."

Yes I'm sure Iowa, Michigan, and Ohio State are all oh so jealous of your football success. Oh wait, Lloyd Carr and Jim Tressel owned Paterno on the field. Kirk Ferentz has a nice win streak going and Bielma clearly had Wisconsin a trajectory superior to PSU's. PSU hasn't done shiat in the B1G, no championships since 1986 and the team that went to the 2006 Orange Bowl is the one worthwhile team they fielded in the 2000s. None of the programs that take football seriously in the B1G fear PSU. Western PA Coal Country talent has withered and PSU hasn't built enough recruiting pipelines to compensate. Even before the sanctions, PSU would have been lucky to average 9 wins over the next decade. They were at best the 4th strongest program in the B1G and likely the fifth strongest.

I am concerned about the quality of the education these students are receiving if they are still incapable of understanding that the NCAA sanctions leveled against their school were not for Sandusky's crimes against children, but instead for the long term, ongoing coverup and facilitation of Sandusky's crimes against children.

Come to think of it, there are several people in this thread who haven't yet figured it out.

And how is anybody blaming the current students for anything?

People are blaming the school for being complicit in a coverup of child rape to protect the football team, and are want the institution to be held responsible for that.

This is the problem right here. Penn State students and alumni have their self identity so wrapped up with the school, football and Joe Pa, that anything said or done to any of those three, they will claim is an attack on them also.

It seems to me that the culture of reverence towards the football team is actually a source of the problem. If people treated the football program as "just another thing the university does," then the administrators would have taken action as soon as they found out about Sandusky. Unfortunately, the administrators were more worried about the football program getting a bad reputation, so they tried to cover it up.

It's analogous to the pedophile priests scandal, in a way. The church hierarchy was more concerned with looking good than with being good, and that made the abuse possible.

Imagine if there had been a TA in the math department abusing kids. The administration would have come down hard on that person as soon as they found out, because nobody worships the math department. It's a good math department, but it's not a subject of reverence. If the alumni had the same attitude towards the football team as they have towards the math department, Sandusky would have been arrested ages ago.

So yeah, I do think the students had something to do with the problem. They turned football into a quasi-religion that could not be questioned, and that attitude was what allowed the abuse to continue.

Wild Eyed and Wicked: Your Average Witty Fark User: I have some family that won't STFU about this. "Oh it's just so unfair!" "Why punish the kids now for crimes committed over a decade ago?" "ESPN, stop coercing our players to transfer!"

GFY. Seriously. I've had enough of your selfishness. Worrying about your goddamned football program is what got you in this mess in the first place. STFU.

My boyfriend and I have been having this same discussion - his refusal to look at this situation as an institutional coverup and not a one time mistake makes me wonder why the fark I am with him...

There is no farking birth right to attend Penn State - if this was the only institution of higher learning or the only place these farkwits could play football, then maybe, just maybe, I would feel a little different. Since they can can go elsewhere (it is not like Penn State is the local community college's football team) no one is being deprived by the NCAA of a chance to go to college. It has just made it less attractive to play there since it is not the paragon of virtue that it once was and you won't get to go to a bowl game. At least they don't have to be butt raped as a condition of their scholarship...


You've hit the nail right on the head. All of these goddamned people think PSU is a birthright. It's as if they've been personally attacked with the sanctions. If I have to explain one more time that reduced scholarships does not equal reduced opportunity, I'm going to vomit. You don't HAVE to have a scholarship to play football. You can pay your own goddamned way. Additionally, if you're good enough to get a scholarship to PSU, you're probably good enough to get a scholarship to another college.
