hinten: Turns out that there are many of those times.


Hell, as PSU it seems that it's always one of those times.

Rent Party: Seeing as how USC is going to mash every single team they play and win the national championship this year, he'd have to be nuts not to go if he can.


Doubtful.

Rent Party: he won't have to put up with a campus full of pedophile enablers.


Even more so.

IAmRight: There, I separated it for you since you have a problem figuring out how to do it yourself.



Well since you decided to be an asshole I'll just point out that it's not my opinion but the conclusion drawn by Louis Freeh who was hired by PSU to investigate the matter:

"That's an inference you can draw, but bad publicity affects a panorama of different events, including the brand of Penn State, including the university, including the reputation of coaches, including the ability to do fundraising. It's got huge implications."

College football is fail this year.

Maybe someone random will win big... like Miami Ohio or some shiat.

The sad thing is that most any other major college program would probably do the same thing as Penn State to "protect the program.


Now back to what should be ahot college cheerleader thread by now:

I've got a $100 bet that USC will never win a national championship with Kiffen as coach. I'm not at all worried about losing that bet.

grinding_journalist: I'm sure he'll go to the school that offers him the greatest opportunities via his degree for his post-college career, and to an institution that is more respected for academics than athletics.


I went to high school in PA. I was accepted to both Penn State Main Campus and a really good private University known for its faculty, research, and various academic programs. As you would expect, many of my teachers had my best interests in mind and pushed me hard toward Penn State because of the football program. I wasn't going to be on the team, but they knew that going to those games was going to be a really important part of my life.

I think the reputation of coaches has a lot to do with football. Of course money matters as well. Money always matters.

Well, the comments showed that everyone was creepy. But I forget, everyone at Penn State is a creepy child molester now. This is not the exact mentality that makes otherwise engaging discussions of this scandal turn into threads of fuknutz.

Gene Chizik's career record is 35-29.

If I were Silas, I'd go with whichever school offered the most money.

On the plus side, if this Silas Redd kid has the brains God gave a kicking tee, he's probably the most cynical 18-year-old on the planet right about now. So that's fun!

Yeah, because the football culture at Penn State is sooo unique.
Are you 11 years old? If so, then being that monumentally naive is understandable.

That is as certain as the sunrise.

trappedspirit: But I forget, everyone at Penn State is a creepy child molester now.


No, they are worse. There was only one child molester at PSU, and I actually give him more credit than the rest of them. he was actually the least of their problems.

He was just one sick, selfish guy acting out on twisted instincts without any perspective to look at the larger picture rationally. He likely wasn't really even capable of understanding the ramification of what he was doing to those children. That's bad. Real bad.

The rest logically and coolly weighed the relative value of the larger program, and found that football wins were more important than those children, and knowingly left them and future ones to be raped. Enabling more of it even, and breaking laws to cover it up for him to keep doing it. That's worse. Much, much worse.

doubled99: Yeah, because the football culture at Penn State is sooo unique.

To go as far as PSU did is pretty unique. I think that other colleges would just stick with quietly dismissing the person.

But the reasons for more of an inclination to protect the coaches/reputation have to do with a) having had the same coach since the '60s - not a problem at most universities because no one's trying to stick around that long. b) the fact that they marketed themselves for years based on moral superiority, which makes it harder to fess up when you do wrong. c) the school's, legislature's, and everyone's association with Second Mile.

Power alone will be the impetus for a lot of corruption. But when you continue to add to that power, as those factors do, then more and more things get covered up.

Chizik just got lucky that Auburn put in the highest bid for Cam Newton. I wonder how many 7-5 seasons he can survive based on that one championship.

So it is about the football program as well as the money then.

Thanks for getting it.

Other than the PSU angle, there's not a whole lot there that isn't par for the course for a lot of people who do some amateur recruiting for their schools on Twitter.
 
2012-07-25 12:15:55 PM  

Mr Guy: Er, article is on creepy fans of every other school hunting for Penn State players.


Check the first few sections of tweets. They're from PSU fans trying to get Silas to stay.
 
2012-07-25 12:18:03 PM  
I wonder what kind of limits schools taking these players would have on providing scholarships. I know they get to give them one, but I don't know anything beyond that. Can they get them a full ride, or what.

Each school can only take one player, right?

You such a moron to think that they would not (you probably believed that whole hope and change thing to). While not rising to the level of child rape they do protect criminal conduct Look at Nebraska and Lawrence Philips or Cedric Benson and UT. You can find the same stuff with almost any major football/basketball program.

Lost_in_Oregon: Serious question: why is the N.C.A.A. so involved in this. I don't see the connection to football.


Sandusky's connection to the football program was the lure for the kids he then raped. People in charge of the football program knew this and did little to stop it.

IAmRight: JK47: The former AD and Head Coach colluded in order to conceal the fact that a sex offender was part of the coaching staff and using PSU athletic facilities to molest children.

Fact

They did so because they feared the damage such a revelation would cause to the reputation of the football program and the effect that would have on recruitment and alumni giving.

Opinion.

There, I separated it for you since you have a problem figuring out how to do it yourself.


do you have a competing thesis on why people in the administration would cover up child rape by a member (and then ex-member with access) of the football program?

Hmmm, now that I've had to read this twice, I realize I kind of blanked out at "football program" and I will accept JK47's statement - the goal was to protect the recruitment and giving. The football program is a useful tool in that process, so they tried to protect it. The football is just a subordinate entity to protect which helps them achieve the larger goal.

I'm too used to people blaming it on a "football culture" and "football was more important." Nah, money was more important. So was power. Those things are regularly more important than doing the right thing throughout America and the world.
