Even in the heinous allegations swirling around Penn State, there is humor to be found. Kudos to Jon Stewart and the Daily Show for this segment....

New York Times: "Joe Paterno’s tenure as coach of the Penn State football team will soon be over."

211

Things (that may be in conflict) to remember: 1. Who the real victims are. Joe Paterno is not one of them. 2. This scandal does not wipe away all the good things Joe Paterno has done over the course of his career, which are considerable. But his inaction in light of serious danger to children certainly diminishes his legacy. 3. Joe Paterno's legacy is not what we should be concerned with right now. I used to say I wanted Pat Fitzgerald to become Northwestern's version of JoePa. Now? I think he's better off just being Pat Fitzgerald.

If you thought Ohio State was in hot water this offseason, I present Charles Robinson's excellent Yahoo! Sports piece on University of Miami. Keywords: Prostitution. Abortion. Cash payments. Yacht privileges. Jewelry. Registering at hotels under the alias "Teddy Dupay." Oh, and the somewhat hidden fact that Miami coaches who knew of the illegal booster activity include 2 current coaches at Alabama, one current coach at Florida, and one current coach at Louisville. Free tattoos don't seem so bad, now do they?

Sorry folks -- technical issues and job responsibilites are going to delay the Ohio State Potluck until probably around noon CT. But, to tide you over, how about some coffee talk? I'll give you a rejected Potluck topic: After Bama Hawkeye's "Casey Anthony in a Buckeyes" jersey picture post yesterday (too soon....too soon...), what past alumni/player/fan of your favorite B1G program brings the most shame to your institution? (Pictures appreciated, but to aid people with slower connection speeds/work filters that block them from seeing pictures, make sure to post the shameful alumni's name and school in your post, too....) The winner of this contest for the NCAA as a whole, of course....O.J. Simpson and USC.

Amidst the Wisconsin hate and welcoming Nebraska to the Big Ten, let's remember this today -- Jim Delany has huge brass balls. At least, that's what I took away from this story by Teddy Greenstein in the Chicago Tribune which details how Delany calling ESPN's bluff led to the Big Ten Network, Nebraska joining the league, and Delany re-gifting a bottle of champagne as an "Eff You" gift.... So pop open a bottle of re-gifted champagne and give thanks for Jim Delany today, ladies and gentlemen.
