The NCAA being run by cheaters and enforcing rules on everyone else is just a mirror image of America itself. DC is full of crooks and scammers who get away with with it and impose rules and make laws for everyone else to follow. This should surprise no one. It's the American way.
False, cause im not blaming you or anybody personally
I have friends that went to PSU and they understand how I feel
The facts are those actions of a few was national news and because of it and the drastic disgusting nature of the crimes.... well, now i associate that with PSU, and Im not alone
therefor I hope your football program burns in hell and sucks for at least the foreseeable future

fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
Too much NoVa and fsufsu getting along ITT for my taste.
This actually happened in my city a few years back. A judge got a DUI, they had a retired judge come out of retirement & fill in until everything got sorted out with said judge. Good analogy.
The people (students and fans) at PSU are great, IMO and always have been.
I think that part of the culture is as good as anywhere in the country.
I am not sure exactly what NoVa is pointing to, but the culture of the administration was brought into serious question. Maybe that is what he was getting at by "culture".
JoePa was a powerful figure, but some of those members of the BOT are giants of industry and have much more power than JoePa had. During the media explosion I just got the feeling that so many people were too busy trying to cover their own a$$ instead of setting things right. On the other hand, I think the regular folks (students, faculty, and fans that aren't in the category of the BOT) handled everything as best they could and were a credit to their University. i don't know as much about how things work with the BOT at PSU, but something with that group didn't seem right to me. Maybe I am wrong though...JMO.
Note: Yes, the drunken mob scene (if you want to call it that) by the students was a bit much, but any other group of 18-22 year olds would have done the same thing at just about any other University on the planet.
Actually, I got arrested as a teenager on some bs and took that shit to trial. The cop who fabricated the story (old grudge) to arrest me ended up getting caught stealing a gun from the evidence locker before the trial. I walked out of the courtroom with all charges dropped.
Key words, " some BS " and " teenager "
Yep PSU has super quality academics. Better than UT even. Yep, Joe Pa had nothing to do with that myth being created in the first place. And yep the culture in Austin totally similar to Happy Valley. Joe Pa could happen there. He could happen anywhere. Complete fact.
Yep, it was only a very small minority of PSU fans/alums/students/white trash that were huffing Joe Pa out of a paper bag. Like less than a percent imo.
Nova is totally delusional about the culture at PSU. Yep.
Nope, I've been there
Lots of fuggin nerds, I hate most college campuses
Yeah man. Of course. Place is like Stanford. It doesn't even need football. Or owe its entire existence to it.
Yeah, you and I are far apart on this one
Spot on. Like it or not emmert does what he wants. What about his past makes anyone think he will let Shalala tell him what to do? Given his past actions I'm more inclined to believe he will make sure she knows who calls the shots, and will crush Miami.
You can only hope. The Miami dominance over you has started and you want the NCAA to make it stop.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
I didn't say anything about hoping Miami gets nailed. I just commented on Emmert.
I don't even know wwhat to say
I hope you guys don't get post season bans I want to beat you guys twice a year.
I will be able to live with 45 over 3.
I'm obv in the minority on this but I think Miami has every reason to be cautiously optimistic. NCAA is fighting on multiple fronts right now. They cannot afford another. Miami has a slam dunk case for prosecutorial misconduct. If the NCAA breaks out the pliers and blowtorch Miami will fight.
So if its less you promise to off yourself?
I can't help that you are dumb enough to equate the actions of a few with a university of hundreds of thousands. You can think what you want, regardless of how irrational it is. It just makes you look like a fool.
Emmert goes easy on them and other schools like USC rip the NCAA. He hits them hard and Miami fights back. He cannot win no matter what he does, which makes the sanctions very unpredictable.
Uh he can win by doing things the way it should be.
Ay yi yi. It was way more than a 'few'. I think the media played a role in making it look worse, but come on. The denial was everywhere you looked. For a while.
lemme see it
