Total cost of scandal at 27 Million so far...

not counting civil suits or the fine... but does count the 13 million spent on board of trustees communication... those must be some killer cell phones.

Missing something in plain sight.

I think this may explain some of the differences between how people see the world. We see in essence what we are looking for. Those that see Joe as honorable and forthright are going to see the actions that portray him this way... Those that see him as a fraud will only see the actions that frame him this way. I think the differences we see in how people argue about it says a lot about a belief that people may be noble, may be good. If you think everyone is fake and horrible, then you will see them that way. If you see people as basically genuine, then you will see them as genuine. It then becomes no secret why Penn Staters generally become apologists... we tend to believe in noble goals.. ideas to shoot for... things to strive for. and it also explains most of ESPN as well... I'll let you fill in the blanks there.

The NCAA, in levying strict sanctions over the Sandusky scandal, slammed Penn State for a "football-first culture" that was caused by a failure of institutional integrity. Those statements continue to draw the ire of some alumni and fans who were irritated that university leadership didn't challenge the assertions. "That's what a lot of people, myself included, and certainly the faculty senate and many members of the Penn State community, have reacted to, is the painting of Penn State with a very, very broad brush in a sense that there's one culture here that dominates everything," Erickson said. Neither the marquee football program nor any other aspect of Penn State life dominates overall university culture, Erickson said. He cited recent NCAA data showing high graduation rates for football players and other Penn State teams. The rates, Erickson said, are an example of Penn State's dedication to academic and athletic success, and "evidence of a culture of athletics that is one that we can and should take great pride in, and we will continue to believe in that principle -- that academics and athletics can work together in a very, very positive way."

Its an ESPN article - and I wont send people there for page hits... think Erickson is actually saying the right thing?

BOB Stands by Ficken...

So... BOB defends his kicker... money quote right here - btw where do I sign up for that there "space book" and "tweeter"? ''Well, obviously I think it's absolutely ridiculous. Not just because it's a 19-year-old college kid,'' O'Brien said about the criticism of Ficken. ''At the end of the day, you know, these guys are really playing hard, giving great effort for us. To go on whatever, 'space book' or 'tweeter' or whatever is put ... on there is just absolutely ridiculous to me and very cowardly, to be honest with you. But that's just my opinion.''"

I hate people..... quote from article: When his former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky is revealed to be a pedophile whom a graduate assistant witnessed raping a boy in the locker room showers and it comes out that Paterno was told and helped hide the scandal and never called the police, Paterno was summarily fired. He died shortly after — many feel of a broken heart — and the school had little choice but to raze a fabled statue of the head coach, just as the NCAA dropped the hammer with sanctions against the school that included removal of Paterno’s wins going back to the cover-up.

A monopoly on the means of communication may define a ruling elite more precisely than the celebrated Marxian formula of "monopoly in the means of production." Since man extends his nervous system though channels of communication like the written word, the telephone, radio, etc., he who controls these media controls part of the nervous system of every member of society. The contents of these media become part of the contents of every individual's brain.

UNC = Pandora's Box

Matt Hayes from The Sporting News in a piece asking Emmert how he's going to punish North Carolina. Money Quote "It’s easy to get emotional about a pedophile, and make snap decisions in the name of children. It resonates with everyone and produces instant credibility—no matter how skewed the process. What happens when Emmert has to make a real decision? What happens when the very existence of college sports comes into play and the general public isn’t as engaged as Joe Sixpack was with Penn State?"

11W article - Mark Emmert Tragically Misses Mark

23

"For those of you screaming, "But that doesn’t punish Penn State! A bunch of requirements to assist victims of child abuse instead of a bowl ban or death penalty lets Penn State off the hook!" Ask yourself this question: What impact does the punishment of Penn State football have on your life? It’s true, the suggestions in section 4b above would less profoundly harm Penn State’s football program. But what is really the goal here? All along, I thought the goal was to do anything possible to help the victims recover while preventing child abuse in the future. Jerry Sandusky’s victims (and child sex abuse in general) were supposed to be the point of this whole thing. The antagonists of this story (Sandusky, Curley, Shultz, and debatably Spanier and Paterno) are 9+ months removed from the program and being punished severely by the legal system. By focusing solely on damaging the Penn State football program, Mark Emmert has missed the point entirely."
