    Seems like that whole second page of the linked article is laying out a case for "lack of institutional control".

    "Lack of institutional control"? Gee, that's a familiar phrase. Where have I heard that before?

    interesting that KF has ties to PSU... and problems (although on different levels) were handled the same way at Iowa as we are seeing at PSU.

    Hardly a coincidence.

    Nice try, but no. Ferentz doesn't have any "ties" to PSU.

    I guess I have ties to Wartburg then since I'm from Iowa?

    Yeah, I think you do. Now what do you have to say about the (alleged) scandal at Wartburg where coaches were caught providing FREE DQ Blizzards to recruits, cheater?

    I already feel guilty that my university has ties to the university that employs Kirk Ferentz who has ties to Penn State.

    The lack of institutional control goes much beyond the "institution". The university, the police, the legal system, the city administration, the judicial system, and the citizens giving flowers to Paterno- everything and everyone in that hillbillly town seems to be messed up.

    Hmm...that was awfully similar to the free Frosty slush fund going on at Central while my friend was there...I plead the fifth on this clear conspiracy.

    Very big stretch. Not buying into that one.
