Last week a topic arose regarding Penn St honoring Joe Paterno's 50 year anniversary of service at Beaver Stadium. Originally a MGoPoster suggested that a movement of 'turning their backs' when PennSt ran onto the field. Though there was less than a week to organize this and did not reach the level of Main Stream media if it did.
For those who were part of that post, and were at the game, did you carry those same sentiments (and turn your back) when Penn St actually did run onto the field? Were there exchanges between you or others towards Nittany Lion fans holding them morally accountable? Were there conversations that you had with loyal fans about the transgressions of the whole Sandusky situation? Or any other personal thoughts or actions?
Masses of folk generally do not like to rehash issues on here but I felt this issue was important and have great empathy for the victims as well.
LSU is about to go through its own version of "It's Happening," and I've been spending the day looking at all the speculation on who will replace Les Miles. Houston's Tom Herman is at the top of the list, of course, just as he will be for Texas, Auburn and USC. Bobby Petrino is also getting a lot of run.
What I find interesting, though, is that multiple LSU reporters and national guys are speculating that Mike D'Antoni could be in the mix. Tom Fornelli of CBS Sports had my favorite explanation as to why Dantonio might be the guy - to get away from Harbaugh.
This columnist from the Baton Rouge newspaper also lists Dantonio among the 10 candidates for the job.
1) Wisconsin game? 2) State game? 3) OSU game? 4) Big Ten championship?
I don't believe the other games are a concern (aside from ChaosTeam, which is just fun). How much of a dropoff should we expect short-term? Is the ceiling higher at the end if the season? Thanks.
Feel free to fire away with some questions for this week's recruiting mailbag.
I'm going to answer a few questions in depth and then do a quick lightning round with a handful of questions that don't need a lot of elaboration.
Hope you've enjoyed them so far
