Can't put this on just Paterno.  He feels the full brunt but so does everyone and anyone else that saw anything and remained silent. There are enough "full brunts" on this one to go around for infinity.  This is a general comment and is not in any way suggesting Schiano saw and remained quiet. Just stating the head guy should take the fall and so should any soldiers that were in lock step with him on this one.

Now we as fans are antagonized by haters to defend something we have minmal knowlede of and can't possibly know enough about. But if we are dismissive we sound like all the Penn State apologists.

No right answer here. We have an implicated guy in a high ranking position. And we have another guy that was a Penn Stater for Life in a high position himself. I hope Larry Johnson's name doesn't come up. Brings our brand into a conversation we know nothing about and want nothing of.

He is speaking at an institution that is the "University of Mississippi" and calls itself "Ole Miss" and he makes a joke about others using an example of shorter words and smaller sentences. 

I'm sure the irony is not lost on anyone here but the enormity of it leaves me speechless.

I think it depends on the program, the geographic region, and the recruiting area. At Minnesota, in an outside stadium in the (genuine) cold weather, you need to be able to play defense and run the ball. 

All these high flying offenses are slinging the football.  That doesn't work so well when it gets to be about October in Minnesota.

Purdue has always stunk.  A few years of the Joe Tiller era was a high water mark for them. 

The issue is Penn State, Michigan, and Nebraska stinking. If they become the elite programs their historic win totals suggest they should be, then we will be more than happy to play a cupcake like Purdue in the conference schedule. 

Sparty and Wisconsin need to be respectable and hold their own. Sparty is doing more than it's part currently. 

If all those things are happening then Purdue can be a laughing stuck and it just doesn't matter to us or to our conference.

I am a little younger than you and i have similar memories.  Sat there in 2001 and then went to the other student sections after that year. But Hey - Freshman Orientation - amirite?
