IL P, 

I think we need to raise the public awareness and get the Universities' attention.  I would start with:

1) An 11W article to mobile the base

2) Coordinate with Columbus and Cleveland print media to engage the public

3) purchase billboard space close to the University get their attention 

4) I know that Archie does not have the same Alumni role that he used to, but his influence is still immeasurable. Invite him to join and help us motivate the Alumni.

Make the case to the Athletic Dept. So that it is about the Man, his historical contributions, and the current/future relevance of all of it. 

This is important as Buckeyes, as veterans, and as humans.

I think this is THE campaign that 11W/12W can and should run with, to borrow the term.  There is a number of good things that would come from this in addition honoring a legend. 

The first one that comes to mind is breaking the stigma of seeking help for mental health and promoting the resources available.  One of the few things I have in common with Mr. Harley is that we both served in the military. Mental health issues are very real and growing for veterans. 

I am very serious about this and I am willing to devote some time and effort. I will be back CONUS in a few weeks, let me know if there is any interest.

I just watched this on youtube, very good. I was born in the 70's and I had no idea about this.  Thanks for the education.

Both are well worth it, Normandy was a special experience. It was awesome to walk through there and talk with my son about the people and history.

He even got to do a geographic survey with a historian trying to pin point the location where Sgt York rose to fame.

I'm never one to tell folks they can't or shouldn't drop their opinions, my point was that trying to argue someone into a different opinion rarely works.  Present a side or evidence and then let reason take over (if there is any.)

I find it interesting that it's a possibility that Sandusky may have been too old (considering Paterno's age and that Sandusky was the heir apparent) but there is no possibility of culpability.  I am not here to condemn Paterno, mostly because he is dead, but in my mind he is also not absolved based on the fact that he was an old man who kinda did something but couldn't do more because he needed more information.

I really appreciate the nod to Airpower! I am an Airman (acft mx) with 23 years in and counting.  I pulled a lot of time on 135's and about 5 years on F-16s.  Tanker TOADS are quiet professionals who do a job that largely goes unappreciated. A tip of the cap to the maintainers and aviators in our sister services as well.

This is a false logic loop.  Paterno only had two options, do nothing or be a vigilante?  I am not passing judgment one way or the other, but if he was enough of a threat that they retired him, letting him back in is criminal negligence.  I hope all of the comments in this thread get nuked.  Good article with good information, but neither side is going to change their stance so beyond stating a position is fruitless.

No DV but you are correct (I disagree with you )  Coach Fickle may not be head coach material (most are not) but he is at the very least what he is.  DC at one of the most prestigious football schools in the country.
