I found two posts very interesting yesterday:
- Finally, Penn State Football Practice Opens, which generated 52 comments
- A FanShot that obviously no one read, Penn State Board of Trustees Members Appeal NCAA Sanctions, Lawsuit Possible, which generated 882 comments
There has been a recurring theme in a number of the Sandusky/sanctions/scandal-related threads that people just want the season to start, can't wait to start talking about actual football, etc. Yep it seems that when we have our first opportunity to talk about football in more depth than just recapping who ran away from the university, no one wants to do it.
Personally, at this point, my brain is so fried from how PSU has seemingly turned into TMZ. A number of others have said the same, yet what I saw yesterday is opposite to some of what has been said.
In no way am I saying what people should talk about, but I was curious as to your thoughts about why the community here seemed to ignore the start of practice in favor of 12.5% of the Board of Trustees threatening a lawsuit against the NCAA. Is it just that we're all living in a really bad reality TV show, without the TV?
I'd rather talk about IT than football because:
