Penn State, My Take
No explanation is satisfactory. Penn State went on with business as usual today. They played - and lost to Nebraska. Former players stood behind the Penn State bench in what they called a "show of solidarity" Solidarity with what? What does football mean to Penn State now? On behalf of football and the larger than life program it had become, Penn State subordinated the basic instinct to protect those who cannot protect themselves. They knew. They had to have known. Perhaps not the terrible details, but the fact that looking away was better than sacrifice of the program. Football made them do it. They should not play again.
