    He coached the football team and funded a new library. That's why I liked him.

    Spanier was so incompetent as President of Penn State that he created free speech zones and let race relations sink to their nadir. I voted for Bush in 2000 based on the rumor that Gore wanted Spanier as Secretary of Education. (I was a Republican in those days.) Paterno created a new library. As someone who likes books and sports, I obviously liked Paterno better than Spanier. That is why.

    People who think that looking the other way at child rape is a really bad thing.

    Indeed. The way in which the protests from Penn Staters singled out those who were raped as children for particular abuse made clear what a cult it was/is.

    I mean, for gods sakes, how do you get to "the bad guys in this are the kids who were raped"? But the PSUers did.

    We Nittany Lions are a cool cult! I actually had dinner with my Penn State friend Mike on Thursday night.

    The worst Sandusky defenders are those who didn't go to Penn State. Google John Ziegler if you don't believe me.

    But it wasn't. Shouldn't you be punching a Clemson linebacker? Did you chase Kirk Herbstreit out of the state of Ohio?
