Penn State Fans Might Have Reached Critical Mass With ESPN

The worldwide leader took a particularly heavy hand in its coverage of Penn State's loss to Ohio on Saturday, the first non-scandal-related item (techincally) the Nittany Lions have had in nine long months of nonstop Sandusky coverage.

There were reports early in the morning of ESPN crews being booed by fans. Later, reporter and light piano accompanist Tom Rinaldi -- notoriously an artisan of the overwrought -- was apparently escorted out of Beaver Stadium after spending the game giving reports on the Paterno family, the pending civil trials against Penn State and variety of other non-game-related items, usually between actual football plays.

Fans humbled and exhausted by college football's "worst scandal ever" can at least assume that PSU's next game won't be overshadowed by a wall-to-wall media conversation about Sandusky and Paterno constantly framed as the "first game since...."

Then again, with a new head coach and a real, live football game to play, they probably assumed that would be the case today.
