I just can't forgive Penn State fans for riding so high on their horse while "Tatgate" went down and their university was covering up THE sickest thing in sports history.
I have a family member who has worked as a professor at Penn State for 30 years. Smartest guy I have ever met. I remember him going off about how Jim Tressel is a "criminal" and how he cheated at YSU and then continued cheating at OSU. He worshiped JoePa and still defends him to this day. I just can not understand that fan base, where people who are normally pretty smart, are so stupid and painfully biased about their football team.
However, things like "Ped State" and "State Penn" get played out so quickly and in current context is just a way to get a cheap laugh over a very serious situation. We can come up with better ways to tell Penn State fans they are idiots and their football team sucks.
