Penn State Scandal
I know you’re as excited as I am to see what sort of living hell awaits Jerry Sandusky when his prison sentence is handed down to him Tuesday. And just like me, you need something to hold you over for the next few hours. So here’s this sound bite of Jerry from prison Monday, talking about how the justice system failed him, still apparently living in his own fantasy land.
It’s been one step forward, two steps back for Penn State students and State College residents in terms of getting the rest of the country to not find them insufferably annoying. Consider this grammatically ambiguous billboard your two steps back of the day. Read more after the jump.
Perhaps the Jerry Sandusky Saga will never officially end. It has been etched in stone in college football, sports, and American culture lore and will never be whited out. But for all you closure hounds out there, three more important dates still lie ahead in the future of this scandal: Jerry’s sentencing, the beginning of Jerry’s prison sentence, and Jerry’s death. While I can’t speak for the latter two, we know this much: on October 9, 2012, Jerry Sandusky will receive his prison sentence. Read more after the jump.
That’s right, the Jerry Sandusky nightmare might not be over. According to CBS, Sandusky is being investigated for soliciting minors across state lines with trips and gifts, as well as the possible sharing of child pornography found on his computer.
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.
Jerry Sandusky must be bored waiting for his prison sentence. To pass the time before he gets sentenced to five consecutive life sentences or 420 years in prison or something ridiculous like that, he just wanted to tell the world he thinks Penn State is paying too high a price for his transgressions.

Things are bleak in Unhappy Valley (get it?) and getting bleaker. Running back Silas Redd, (former) crown jewel of the Nittany Lions’ offense, has announced his transfer to the USC Trojans. More after the jump.
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.
Pressure from local and national media, alumni and nearly anyone else who’s heard about the Freeh report — not to mention a kind of scary airborne threat — has the Penn State administration considering removing the Joe Paterno statue on campus. Maybe. Eventually. However, if anyone tries to do that, they’ll have to go through this unfortunate brigade first.
