What Happened Last Night: Buzzer Beaters And Crazy Stat Lines In The NBA, And A Massive College Basketball Upset
Had plans last night that didn’t involve sports? We feel for you, we really do – because you missed a damn good night of action. So good, in fact, that we’ll keep this intro short and get right to recapping what went down. Cool? Cool. Let’s do this.
Joe Paterno’s Family Is Happy The State Of Pennsylvania Is Suing The NCAA Over Its Penn State Sanctions
When the NCAA handed down severe punishments to Penn State last July based on the findings of the Freeh Report in relation to the school’s alleged mishandling of Jerry Sandusky, it didn’t feel quite right to us. So would the news that the state of Pennsylvania is suing the NCAA sit any better with us? Well… not really. After the jump, we explain why.
With the Jerry Sandusky trial over, one of the victims who got the case against Sandusky going to begin with, known during the trial only as Victim 1, is telling his story in greater depth. That includes an interview with ABC, which airs tonight. A preview is after the jump.
Jerry Sandusky faced up to 442 years in prison after being convicted on 45 counts of sexual abuse of children in June. And despite his last, desperate pleas leading up to today’s sentencing, it was a foregone conclusion he’d be going away for a long time. As of this morning, we know exactly how long.
Well, it was bound to happen. Once it came out that unspeakable things happened at Penn Sate at the hands of Jerry Sandusky, it was inevitable that said unspeakable acts would be used for college football trash-talk purposes.
A Facebook Group Is Trying To Get A Quarter Million People To Show Up For The Penn State Home Opener
While Penn State football has lost 13 players from its roster to transfers and decommitments, many PSU fans have remained loyal to the program. In late July, a Facebook group was started, asking 250,000 to come support the Nittany Lions when they open their season at Beaver Stadium September 1. The details, after the jump.
A group of roughly 30 Penn State players today walked out of the school’s football building, stood in front of the assembled media, and announced their intention to stay in the pile of flaming wreckage that is the Nittany Lions’ football program.
That hasn’t stopped opposing coaches from getting real creepy.
Penn State Coach Bill O’Brien Isn’t Going Anywhere, But It Would Also Be Really Expensive For Him To Quit
Penn State football just got pretty much nuked by the NCAA, to the point where some wondered: is it even worth it for new coach Bill O’Brien to stick around? Well, he’s not going anywhere – and he’s got millions of reasons to stay put.
Today’s NCAA-commissioned deathblow to Penn State football hurts the program’s past (all of their wins going back to 1998 are now off the books) and its present (a $60 million fine). The future wasn’t spared either.
Over the weekend, as the statue of Joe Paterno outside Beaver Stadium came down, more Penn State news came up: namely, that the NCAA was about to come down hard on Penn State football with sanctions. This morning, the NCAA did just that. A list of the extremely harsh sanctions is after the jump.
