mattbau: Reading the comments on every Penn State story here always leads me to believe everyone actually believes students knew and were OK with what was happening.I'll just leave this here
lecavalier: You: "Football is nothing. It is not worth the resources and liability."
Donnchadha: namatad: except that pennsylvania is not paying the fine. PENN STATE is paying the fine.And state universities are funded by....?
IlGreven: mattbau: Donnchadha: namatad: except that pennsylvania is not paying the fine. PENN STATE is paying the fine.And state universities are funded by....?Thanks to Gov. Corbett's own state funding cuts, Penn State is receiving nothing compared to past appropriations.And thanks to Tom Corbett seeking the governorship rather than attempting to nip Sandusky in the bud as AG, Penn State is getting a bigger ass-raping than it should have.
liam76: ou want to blame students and alumni not the official who didn't do their job?You are really obsessed with football fans. Did you get wedgies from football fans growing up or something?
Warlordtrooper: It's almost as if at this point you are punishing people who had no involvement instead of punishing people who were involvedRemember when we tried this approach to Germany after ww1. No way that turned out badly
Sgt Otter: Huh, I had kind of pushed it out of my mind that an alarming number of high-ranking Penn State officials covered-up and enabled the forcible sodomy of underage boys for years, and that a large number of the student body actually rioted in support of a pedophile enabler.Thanks for the reminder, guys.
vudukungfu: The governor of that state of disrepute is an asshole and has sealed his legacy. He isn't pounding his desk asking what happened to Ray Gricar. He's trying to save his seat. What a joke. Sadly, the bitter, bible and gun clutching voters of his state will probably allow him to continue to get fat on their dime.
FloydA: Dear Penn State Alumni;The longer you keep the child rape scandal in the public eye, the worse you look. Raping kids is bad. Covering it up to protect the reputation of your football team is also bad. Continuing to complain about the punishment for the cover-up does more to damage the reputation of your football program than simply accepting the punishment and moving on. Farking stop it already.
Terlis: 1. Gov Corbett was the Attorney General who started the prosecution of Sandusky. Then he "pressured" some of the PSU Board of Trustees to fire Paterno. There are many people in this State who still treat Paterno as a God and as such would never ever vote for the man who sullied Paterno's name. This is a ploy by Corbett to save himself some face and maybe secure reelection in 2014.

Gonz: OtherLittleGuy: PennsyltuckyLook, I've had about enough of this.As someone who was raised in, and subsequently escaped from, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, I recognize the flaws of my home state. And it's completely unfair to compare us to those child-rape enablers in the North. We have our flaws, but kiddy-diddling isn't on the list.Unless they're good at basketball.
vygramul: Paging GAT_00 to the Blue and White courtesy phone...
Donnchadha: The state legislature is trying to keep the money in state to help the people actually affected by the scandal -- who are, you know, in Pennsylvania. By taking 75% of the fine out of state, you're not really helping the victims at all.
ZAZ: Is it different in Pennsylvania?
ZAZ: After reading the SI article my guess is state politicians want to spend the $60 million on state programs and reduce regular state funding to those programs by $60 million to come out even. The NCAA wants to spread the money around the country, making Pennsylvania poorer as a result of the fine.
