Emmert attempts to lull the sheep

This was shared via an e-mail, and is not yet available on the Chronicle of Higher Ed's website, so I am cutting-and-pasting in full. Note especially the last paragraph of the article. If other...

Ya gotta love the last sentence in this write-up. Nice to see transparency and input from the greater Penn State community are welcomed.

Adam Breneman's "Catch the Cure"

I know there are many great causes and organizations competing for donations in a tough economy, but please remember Adam Breneman's "Catch the Cure" campaign against ALS. If they raise $50K by...

Inconsistency can be fixed.

Seems to be one of the biggest "problems" in yesterday's game was a lack of consistency. That first scoring drive was methodical and daring, at the same time. Yes, timeouts were used, but my hope...

Buzz Bissinger on Lance Armstrong: "He is a hero."

(Personally, I believe Lance should be admired for winning seven Tours, for his "beating" cancer, and for all he did to raise funds to fight cancer. I have no idea if he doped or not. Apparently he...

Penn State Graduation Rates

Just to amplify Nick Blonde's (aka Sunshine Shane?) thread on the front page, look at Penn State's GSR and FGR numbers AND where we rank in all of D-1A. If we have a football culture, it sure...

SSS811 did a great job of alerting us to this poll a few days ago, but his FanShot is aging out. Want to revive his post so we can win this poll, and poke a sharp stick in E$PN's eyes. Here is the recent tally: Texas A&M Aggies 21126 Penn State Nittany Lions 19714 Missouri Tigers 12490 West Virginia Mountaineers 9730 VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!!!

Sanction "negotiations"

11

Apologies if this has been linked already, and that it links to E$PN. Sounds like Penn State "negotiated" with a gun at its head, and only involved Peetz, Erickson, and a few lawyers. So much for transparency. Assuming this story is accurate, it is sickening how little the BoT reviewed and discussed the Freeh report.

According to my sources, Aurabass has been banned because he linked to someone else's material. I cannot substantiate if that is the true reason or not, but I will say that, for myself (and...
