Most Self Congratulatory Team of All Time?




In my desperate need to read all things college football, I cam across Pete Fiutak's Calvacade of Whimsy. In it he trashed PSU for putting Mauti's number on their helmets. In his opinion it was a shameless act because as he said "its not like Mauti died or anything". He then went on to basically trash the players for pulling together and you know, having fun. I know the tide has shifted to people finally realizing that this was the miscalculations of 3-4 people (the "coverup" not Sandusky: that goes way beyond a miscalculation), not a whole university. Announcers at ESPN were giving us props, etc. It felt nice not to be thought of us child molester enablers. The thing that pissed me off the most was this blurb that stated the dining hall ran out of Captain Crunch and the team pulled together and got through it. (And we should be bowing down and kissing Emmert's feet for allowing us to continue on. These kids played their ass off with their heart on their sleeve probably in one of the most difficult seasons in college football history, LET THEM ENJOY IT FOR ONE SECOND WITHOUT REMINDING THEM OF SANDUSKY! I realize that there will always be trolls like him, but what gets me is he is usually pretty level headed. And I realize all of this has been covered ad-nauseum else where, but it still pissed me of. Thanks for letting me rant.
