I just wanted to pop in to compliment the posters on this board for being adults. I was curious to see the reaction to the O'Brien news and was half expecting "deserter", "traitor" posts as I've seen elsewhere. Which of course is nonsense, the guy has the right to leave for the pros just as any eligible player does.

Bill, doesn't deserve a promotion. I'm not impressed, I believe the were many coaches they should have considered. Something seems odd/fishy.

It will be interestng to see how much hue and cry is raised bythe Politically Correct Clique if the helm is returned to a PSU grad; From 1930 to 2011, Penn State had only three head coaches, and I always took pride in the belief that we imposed our own standards, and lived up to them.

The Sandusky scandal, which certains sectors of the media and the publc worked hard to turn into "the Penn State scandal", was orchestrated from the first by people with an agenda that went a lot further than football. Since Paterno was "thrown under the bus" there has been very little attention devoted to others among the University leadership who were involved, and I cannot understand why.

And finally, it still amazes me that, in a time when any issue with sexual overtones is subject to all manner of investiation and analysis by the media, the operation of Sandusky's sham "Second Mile" operstion wasn't noted and put under a closer scrutiny years before the scandal erupted. Paterno was sacrificed because he was often "out of the loop" -- two or three generations had passed between his "time" and that of the people he was coaching, and the workings of the publicity schlockmeisters were insulating him a bit more every day.

There are a lot more rocks to be turned over in Happy Valley, and painful as it may be, we owe it to ouselves to see what crawls out from underneath.

Solid post. As a Florida State fan, I always respected Penn State and Paterno. The problem I have with the situation is that when a state school is paying you millions, it's your job to know what is going on. Like Bowden, Paterno coached past his prime. These guys were senior citizens almost 20 years before they left. Lots of people were hurt by Sandusky...
