Joe Paterno & Penn State

I assume that people have read about the recent events at Penn State: the alleged sexual abuse in the football program (not by Paterno, the head coach there for decades), the cover-up, the cover-up crashing down, Paterno’s decision to retire at the end of the season, the Trustees’ decision to sack him and the university president immediately, and the student riots.

 

I propose a simple solution: end the NCAA and collegiate athletic programs. Universities will, overall, save money.  More resources will be available for the academic side of things.  There isn’t a real downside other than more resources available for administrative bureaucrats as well.

 

And then people can do things that are productive on Saturdays and during March.

    Now that I will no longer be cheering for Penn State on Saturdays, I have only one thing to say:
    “War Eagle!”

    Just kiddin’ W.O.R.M.

    ROLL TIDE.

    For once in my life, I don’t feel that weird about not being into sports.

    Being the red-blooded American male that I am, I think I’ll check out some more Mahler Youtubes now. Awwriiiiiiiiiight!
