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.
