We seem to be calming ourselves down nicely. The Armageddon of Penn State football post from FOS made it's way here finally, we had our fun, and now we're moving on. The biggest downfall of the Internet is it's ability to fabricate creditability from things that are nothing more than rumors. Is it true? I don't know. But fighting in the work place, an old guy showing up late, and a bunch of 19 and 20 year olds not giving a damn isn't anything new in the world.
If you were speaking strictly offense you could make that case. Defensively you can see a Penn State alum make a play in almost every game on a Sunday so I'm not sure I'm buying this.
That whole STEP thing seemed like a good idea at the time? In the end buying the seat next year is an investment towards being there in 4 years as much as it is being there next season. Maybe you don't get a national title, but there is no way the Alabama and Nebraska games won't be sellouts. For every angry old guy with tickets there is some 30 something year old alum who has been waiting his turn. Tickets are expensive, but their competitive.
If you haven't been listening to their podcasts you should. Here is your chance to change your ways.
