Its on us now...

Two separate but related comments...

 

First, the actions of the Board of Trustees last night regarding Coach Paterno feel reactionary and petty - a final power play against a man who they've been trying to remove for years.  While the grand jury results were released this week, we've all known about the allegations and the seating of the grand jury for quite some time - all the BoT posturing this week should've been done months ago if they really cared and weren't just fighting a PR war. 

That's water under the bridge this morning...  Hopefully the BoT will be removed as well...  Nothing can repair the lives of the real victims, but slash and burn throughout the community is not a restorative plan either.

 

Moving on...

Coach Paterno will forever be linked to and tainted by this scandal - right or wrong.  Its up to us to make sure that the ideals of Paterno's Grand Experiment remain intact.  Success with Honor sounds hollow now, but it is still something that we as a community should stand behind and continue to try and embody.  We've had one face at this university for a long time - now that responsibility falls to the rest of us. 

I'll be out on Saturday supporting my team... see ya there
