Penn State Should Forfeit Saturday

I find it unimaginable that Penn State is still planning on playing a football game against Nebraska on Saturday.  Not only should the game not be played, the Nittany Lions should forfeit.  The only argument that one could make for playing the game would be that it penalizes the current players if you don’t.  But this situation is so beyond that right now it’s embarrassing.  To be clear, this is not fair to the current players.  People who should know better have ruined it for them.  And now everyone at Penn State will have to pay.

Playing a game of football on Saturday sends the message that “we think it’s ok to put this situation ‘on hold’ for three hours.”  All the while, the college president and the football coach and everyone in between have not said a word.

I probably like sports more than most people, but in my opinion, a game on Saturday would be wrong.

  1. I don’t know where the “like” button is on this one, but I couldn’t agree with you more. I have so many opinions about it, but I will just say that I agree with you.

    • Your nuts, just because the game is played doesn’t mean what is happening at the university is being put on hold! These kids don’t deserve to be punished because of the wrong doings of other people. Not playing the game isn’t gonna solve any of the problems that have occurred.

  2. Makes no sense to punish the athletes at Penn St. for a series of events they had nothing to do with. If you want the coaches who were a part of this to be disciplined, fine, but for the seniors not to be allowed to play isn’t making things any more right for the victims.

  3. The students rallying in support of JoePa, or rioting against the Trustees, REALLY dont “get it.” The police hotline is right now fielding calls from more “alleged” victims, which is to be expected, reportedly the number of victims has at least doubled since Sandusky’s arrest on Saturday. Where is the humanity here? Let the Trustees continue to clean house and wait for a new season, and some time for the healing of the recently ripped off scabs of the old wounds of the young boys, or by now young men, involved in this travesty.

  4. Have you ever considered creating an e-book or guest authoring on other
