    Penn St. and the media

    Why is Penn St on national TV again? They obviously aren't good. Is their fan base being rewarded for what has gone on? I don't get it.

    Part of their NCAA punishment should have been to force their games to only be shown on the longhorn network.

    I understand hating the longhorn network, but isn't that a bit much?

    why - it solves two problems. It gives that network football games to show and it keeps penn state off of national tv. It's a win-win!

    They won't be much then next 3-5 seasons. The media "story" will have worn off by then and they will just be your typical run of the mill bad team.

    Why is Penn State on ABC?

    I refuse to watch this pedophile university. ABC should be ashamed of themselves putting this on TV for a money grab.

    Re: Why is Penn State on ABC?

    I was flipping through the channels and noticed that as well. I felt dirty and went back the other way.

    There is something wrong with having a Disney-owned company profiting off of a pedophile school situation by airing their games.

    Business or not, it is disgusting. There is nothing wrong with a business conforming to basic social norms. In fact, it should be expected. Unfortunately, we have come to expect the opposite, if there is money to be made.
