PSU still doesn't get it and never will!

Submitted by Hard-Baughlls on October 23rd, 2016 at 10:56 AM

After their huge upset of OSU, James Franklin proclaimed that now the "healing process" at PSU can take place.  Sure, that makes sense.  

Win a big home game as an underdog and all the PTSD, life problems, physical and emotional scars of anal rape can finally now begin to heal because the valiant Nittany Lions won a football game.

Yes James Franklin, this win probably helped you save your job and may help PSU's football program not continue collapsing into complete irrelevance.  But really?  Is that what healing is?  

I would like to say that I am amazed by the complete lack of perspective and sensitivity coming out of "Happy Valley", but I'm not, as once again that sick cult culture fostered at State College exposes itself.

i was rooting for the buckeyes last night and i will root for any team playing against the pedophile liars until they sincerely apologized for the crimes they committed.

I'm sympathetic to this point of view, but I can see what Franklin is talking about with a healing process. Neither Franklin nor any of the guys on that team did anything wrong, but they've had to go through crap because of crimes committed by others and an administration and some fans that are still absolutely clueless. I can see how Franklin and some players might feel that way.

His reactions to the rapes at Vanderbilt are very much in line with the issues at Penn State.  Franklin may not have contributed to anything that happened at Penn State, but he is not a good person as far as I am concerned and does not deserve healing before he deals with his own skeletons.

Yeah, the irony of all this -

I rooted for the psu football team to beat the osu football team because

1) it helps Michigan's football team in the quest to win the East Division of the B1G and

2) it's osu, Duh!

But as a result the psu fans get to rush the field and their coach gets to say this begins the healing.

So....... how do you type that shruggy guy? Never figured that out, but insert him (here)

The JoePa supporters and those PSU fans living in denial make me sick too.  But I know many PSU alumni/fans who are sickened by JoePa and the others in power that let these horrific actions take place.  Should those PSU alumni have to walk around in shame, and be called graduates of the pedophile school forever?  It is their alma mater - give them a break.

Some of you people posting here are deranged.  Leave the good PSU fans alone...

because they have nothing else to do in their lives, other than work 50 hours a week, raise their children, spend time with their friends and families, and god forbid, relax and watch a football game on Saturday.  They should take vacation time and go to Happy Valley and picket the administration.

Get past it with the good fans of PSU and give them a break.  They just want to represent their alma mater and live their lives well...

"Neither Franklin nor any of the guys on that team did anything wrong, but they've had to go through crap because of crimes committed by others and an administration and some fans that are still absolutely clueless."

 

The problem is that this is 100% what they signed up for when they inked that LOI to play for Penn State. Since 2011, NO ONE with half a brain or any ounce of common sense can genuinely claim ignorance of anything related to the atrocious reputation of the university anymore. Those who stayed knew the atmosphere, knew the allegations, knew the culture they were engulfing themselves in. No player or coach can claim ignorance or whine about how unfair it is when they all 100% signed up for everything that comes with playing for a university and fanbase that continues to worship, shield, and enable pedophilia in the name of their precious football program.

Here's the testimony:

Q: Did [Bradley] tell you that he had had information concerning Gerald Sandusky and children?

A: He said he knew of some things.

Q: And did he tell you what he knew of?

A: Yeah.

Q: What did he tell you?

A: He said another assistant coach had come to him in the early ‘90s about a very similar situation to mine, and he said that he had—someone had come to him as far back as early as the ‘80s about seeing Jerry Sandusky doing something with a boy.

Q: Did he identify who the other coaches were that had given him this information?

A: The one in the early ‘90s, yes.

Q: And who was that?

A: Greg Schiano.

Q: Greg Schiano?

A: Yes.

Q: And did he give you any details about what Coach Schiano had reported to him?

A: No, only that he had—I can’t remember if it was one night or one morning, but that Greg had come into his office white as a ghost and said he just say Jerry doing something to a boy in the shower. And that’s it. That’s all he ever told me.

Q: Did he tell you what, if anything, he had done about that?

A: No, he didn’t share with me

 

Never root for OSU for anything.  I was

rooting for PSU's Players to win last

night because they had Nothing to

do with the past.  Glad they won.

Fuck OSU and Fuck PSU's JoePa

slappies who will never get it.

"Healing" in that context just has so many implications that are inappropriate here. A team needs to "heal" after losing some member of their family in a freak accident, or when there's a tragedy at their school. A team does not need to "heal" after their school was sanctioned for its coaches raping children and covering it up for the sake of winning games.

And then to equate the healing process with winning games, after putting winning above protecting children from a rapist?!

Words matter, and PSU has earned the pressure to walk on egg shells for decades in order to slowly rebuild its self-desecrated respect and honor. Maybe if they are forced to self-reflect after every single thing happens to them, they will actually understand the full scale of their actions.

What else was he supposed to say? As much of an idiot as Franklin is, so far it seems like he runs a clean program. The only thing missing was wins.

I, for one, am excited to see many more years of the Franklin era at Penn State.

Fuck Penn State.

They don't understand PSU has nothing to heal.  The PSU community weren't the victims.  He also talked about how much the program has gone through in the last five years like they were the victims.  PSU football and the PSU community were not the victims they were the problem and caring so much about a big football win is part of that problem.  Until they get that anybody and everybody who supports that program can get fucked.

Exactly. It's not about them. THEY were not the victims  - Penn State is not a victim - not the program, not the coaches, players, fans, admin, etc. 

To talk about "healing" when there are living, breathing victims living today in that community who are hurting because of that program is over the top disrespectful.

Here's the clip embedded in the tweet. Yeah, it's nice that OSU choked this one away and all that, but the healing process is something this school will apparently never allow to happen, at least not completely. They would first need to admit something happened, you see.

Eh, nothing wrong with being proud, but referring to the "healing process" as if his poor team were the victims and winning football was the cure, was a choice, and a bad one at that.

Just from the standpoint of "PSU has a fractured image", this was a healing process. And yeah, a lot of their fans STILL don't get it, and winning last night obviously won't fix that image. But to me, it was basically Franklin saying "we can finally celebrate something good for Penn State again". I don't get why that's so controversial.
