I'm sure this will cause no controversy whatsoever. /sarcasm

Fucking kidding me.  No way in hell will this actually happen, and if it does, they deserve every terrible thing that happens to their university tenfold.  I am truly disgusted

There are times that you need to look at the big picture and for PSU, letting go of Paterno is one of those times.  Paterno's several decade long enablement of Sandusky's evil, one would think, is something most people would want to avoid but not some of the assholes from the PSU family.  

Really makes you wonder.

every time the bees settle down, to reignite everything.

Having gone to the Penn State game last year, it is clear that the Joe Paterno worship is still there - even though not officially announced. They cheer loudly any time Paterno shows on the old footage of the psych up we are Penn State video.

Hey, at least this way they officially acknowledge it, and come in for a deserved public opinion drubbing.

unless you live in the little bubble that is Penn State. Joe Paterno had a horrible off season. All the revelations about his knowing about abuse in the 1970s mean nothing there. Why not play that game in throwback jerseys too? 2001, 1998, 1976 1971, they're probably all the same.

we aren't the University clinging to a coach who enabled such behavior...let alone honoring the bastard...lighten up Francis, focus your energy on PSU who apparently just doesn't get it. He was making light of their perverse perspective not the act/actions. Jebus.

I think you're starting to dig yourself into a hole you probably don't want to be in, but I'll provide a clarifying comment for you.

Child rape is not hilarious, it's a horrible, horrible tragedy. So is human slavery. So is cancer. So is genocide. But people tell jokes (which are the things that are funny - not the things themselves - see the distinction?) about all of them because it helps us cope. If you start to decide that one thing is not funny, then you've made a pretty significant value judment that that thing is way worse or more important than other forms of human suffering. Which might be kind of insulting to some people who have suffered a great deal. Comedy avoids this (or should avoid this) by deciding not to choose, instead choosing to mock everything equally.

Honestly, the complete lack of contrition on PSU makes me hate them more than OSU and MSU. I honestly hope they never win another game until they actually come to terms with what Joe Pa turned a blind eye to.
