I still feel bad for Penn State football and how the acts and inactions of some people directly within the football program itself has caused so much damage...(here comes the infamous line) that being said I have know idea how players/parents like Alex A (and especially his intelligent dad, Dr. A) could feel comfortable having/keeping Penn St.on their short list while dumping Ohio St. The initial reaction of dumping Ohio St. because 1 of 80,000 FANS turned out to be a sex offender is all kinds of crazy. When the Penn St. thing went down I remember thinking, they better rip out those locker rooms or at least the showers, because no player will ever feel comfortable going in there again knowing what heinous crime was committed right where they stand. Somehow the doctor and Alex are ok with Penn St. and didn't feel like their failures to protect a child , on campus, in the football facilities from a football staff retiree with full access, measures up to Ohio State's failure to properly vet all of it's fans (the largest fan base in all of college football).
Stupid knee jerk reactions like this as well as all the knew jerk reactions from some of our own fans (many on this site) panicking and saying "we might get penalties for this", makes the world a dumber place. Unless, The Ohio State University or any university, knowingly invites sex offenders to games or encourages them to visit the team, what the hell can these chicken littles be talking about? If college football starts vetting anyone who tries to attend a game, can you imagine all the empty seats at an SEC game like Alabama vs Georgia? In one word, Deliverance.
