Never let it be said former Penn St. Nittany Lions and Washington Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington lacks school spirit, even in the darkest times. Here he is speaking to the crowd at that Friday night candlelight vigil in remembrance of Jerry Sandusky's alleged victims.
But with Penn State reportedly hiring NFL assistant Bill O'Brien as its head coach, putting a man with no impressive college experience or head coaching experience of any kind in charge of one of the nation's largest programs, it was just a bit too much for Arrington, who took to Twitter before hitting the air waves for his day job:
PSU is hiding something; there's way more going on there!
By the board doing what they've done they have in their minds effectively made Joe [Paterno] and the football team a scapegoat when in fact they are the very people that should've been fired due to the lack of action!
Alums I will always love you and the Penn State I knew. but until there's a new board and new leadership they can have their corrupt/disgusting school that they've created. I'm done all my PSU stuff will be down before obriens introduction! We are! No more for me!
There's the sense that the school has gone out of its way to make a show of de-emphasizing football in the wake of the Sandusky scandal.
