Thought the board would get a kick out of this: According to an except from the about-to-be-released Paterno book, the BSD conspiracy theorists who are still outraged over the ending of the '05 Michigan-Penn State game had some company from their favorite coach (link):
“Following PSU’s controversial 27-25 last-second loss at Michigan in 2005, the Lions’ only blemish on an 11-1 season, Paterno was furious that officials put a few seconds back on the clock, possibly allowing Wolverines QB Chad Henne enough time to throw the game-winning TD pass on the final play. According to Posnanski, Paterno told friends he was considering pulling the Lions out of the Big Ten as a result.”
It was all the Big Ten's fault, apparently. Or Michigan's fault. Or something.
Either way, the delusion wasn't limited to fans. Too bad Paterno didn't follow through with that threat.
