Agree with "deserve" versus "earn" points above.

Would add that I'd change downgrade my "yes" vote to "probably" (if given the option) due to his public comments on the matter.

This is quality irony.

I'm glad that Penn State has returned to its iconic look, which has been shown to be an almost monstrous example of idolatry - or at least testimony to willful (blind?) ignorance.

I tried really hard to outdo this... But you win. This may even NAIL IT.

My cynical prediction is that Indiana is not even mentioned in any ESPN analysis of the gladiator-esque nature of all SEC tilts.

Comment 27 Sep 2014

Appreciate the emphasis on gameplay, but they are an SEC team with alphabetic superiority. Don't think so much!

Did not see the game, but this is all kinds of no good. Can anyone else fill in the blanks on this?

Before you started this thread, I was going to suggest he was nearing the gotta-fire-on-principle zone due to this quote:

"I think this team can still win a championship," he said. "I really do, but we've got to play much better and we have to support each other as we do it."

I sincerely try to avoid comments as to terminating someone's employ. None of us rarely seem to be close or inside enough to really know...

But - come on. This guy is way passed house money. They are not just regressing - it's a freefall.

He violated the terms/conditions of his license to be in the stadium (i.e., ticket) after passing/hearing [I'm guessing here] numerous posted/announced warnings against entering the sideline and field of play. That scenario - which he created - is rife with panic and confusion and being subdued by an arguably conventional physical reaction (i.e., grabbing and tackling) is arguably a foreseeable consequence.

Can you articulate: (a) his right to enter the field of play; or (b) how any other right was somehow violated by an act that was a foreseeable reaction to the sequence of events that he set in motion?

I mostly agree. 

I'm ambivalent on new/alternate uniforms (to each their own), but when the "look" is clearly in the zone of looking edgy for edgy's sake, you have to wonder whether the sponsor is at all interested in the client. And - Adidas seems to consistently be in the head-scratching zone.
