    I liked it better when the mega thread ate up these kinds of posts.

    Might as well join the DSM Pop Warner league, about the same level of competition.

    Relax, I was being facetious.

    Terrible situation though.

    ISU doesn't want to be in a conference in which they could win more than three games. The challenge is what they need.

    Too weak of a conference in FB and MBB. No thanks.

    I've said from the very beginning that Penn State football would be serving its own self interests by suspending their program for at least a few games if not one full season. It's the only way.

    If they never miss a single game out of the whole thing the public perception is the organization was absolved of any wrong doing. Short term financial hit, long term financial benefit to the brand.

    I'm not talking about football either. I'm talking about public relations and brand identity.

    Really dissapointed in Spanier


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    Suspending their program makes no sense to me. Jail time for all who knew and covered it up and multi-million dollar settlements for those they hurt does make sense.

    I don't disagree with you about the punishments being much more important in terms of justice. Just from a PR and brand identity standpoint I think they'd be better off financially in the long run if they suspended at least one football game. Personally I don't care if they're eternally branded as serial child molesters, but if I had an attachment or degree with Penn State I'd be outraged they're not making the best PR move though.

    If the football program never misses a game, to many the entities that are Penn State and Penn State football will have been absolved. Not saying it's fair or logical but public opinion is rarely either.
