O'Brien, Vanderlinden, Fisher and Schiano

Greetings all. I think O'Brien's done a pretty good job, but he's made a few bad decisions which is typical of any person's first time being a big boss. I think it's interesting that NFL teams are...


Gestapo Tactics

I was issued a warning for my recent post, which has been deleted, entitled "Fire Butler." I described my extreme dissatisfaction with last week's performance, noting that the team did not appear...


Fire Butler

Yeah yeah, sanctions, blah blah blah blah. I'm sick of excuses. These guys look similar to the Florida A&M pass coverage. I'm no Paterno-ite. I'm no O'Brien-ite. I'm a Penn State fan who watches...

Incredible Hypocrisy

Individuals had knowledge of child sex abuse in 2002. Instead of taking this information to the police, they sat on it. Nine years later the story came out. I'm not talking about Penn State.   I'm...


Because PSU Football Falling into a Black Hole is "Good for the Kids"   Maybe we can dig up some protesters who can explain how the program falling...


Can we all stop apologizing now?

Yes, self-righteous ESPN, we get it. Sexually assaulting children is morally reprehensible. As though we already didn't know that.   The fans didn't do this. The students didn't do this. The...
