The more allegations I hear about in CFB,the more convinced I am that there NEVER was a football culture problem at Penn State. #Truth#WeAre— Todd Blackledge (@Todd_Blackledge) September 12, 2013
Every fan of a college football program that's been hit by the NCAA in recent years wants to use every new college football scandal as an opportunity to revisit his or her school's case -- that's former Penn State quarterback Todd Blackledge above. This happens every single time. It's natural, and it's annoying. But while many of us continue to sympathize with Penn State's innocent players and coaches, the allegations raised by Yahoo! don't point to a "football culture" problem at any particular school. They point to a football culture problem literally everywhere, ingrained in the institution that's the closest thing to a college football overlord. The Yahoo! story is ultimately about the NCAA and has not much of anything to do with any particular school. Also, there's the SI story on Oklahoma State. It's also there, alright.
