The NCAA, in levying strict sanctions over the Sandusky scandal, slammed Penn State for a "football-first culture" that was caused by a failure of institutional integrity. Those statements continue to draw the ire of some alumni and fans who were irritated that university leadership didn't challenge the assertions. "That's what a lot of people, myself included, and certainly the faculty senate and many members of the Penn State community, have reacted to, is the painting of Penn State with a very, very broad brush in a sense that there's one culture here that dominates everything," Erickson said. Neither the marquee football program nor any other aspect of Penn State life dominates overall university culture, Erickson said. He cited recent NCAA data showing high graduation rates for football players and other Penn State teams. The rates, Erickson said, are an example of Penn State's dedication to academic and athletic success, and "evidence of a culture of athletics that is one that we can and should take great pride in, and we will continue to believe in that principle -- that academics and athletics can work together in a very, very positive way."

Its an ESPN article - and I wont send people there for page hits... think Erickson is actually saying the right thing?

The Pennsylvania State University is known internationally as one of the best public research universities in the United States, with total enrollment approaching 100,000 students. It ranks no. 1 in the United States among universities with information technology degrees. The Penn State College of Information Sciences and Technology has created a unique interdisciplinary program in enterprise architecture that integrates computer science, information technology, and business. The Center for Enterprise Architecture (CEA) needed storage capacity to support this important technology-intensive research agenda and the degree programs. The CEA is in the process of creating an innovative lab environment and was thrilled to be approached by NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) to participate in NetApp's Education Donation Program. NetApp's program has already awarded over 100 systems in the past 6 months to universities and K-12 institutions that demonstrated an innovative approach to education. Penn State received a $250,000 Storage System and Software award for the Center for Enterprise Architecture.

Former Packers LB Dave Robinson, a member of Vince Lombardi’s three championship teams in the mid-1960s, has been nominated for the Pro Football Hall of Fame by the senior committee. The other senior nominee for 2013 is former Chiefs, Oilers and Lions DT Curley Culp. Robinson, a linebacker from Penn State, was drafted in the first round by Green Bay in 1963. He played in 127 games over a decade (1963-72) with the Packers. He was named a Pro Bowl starter in 1966 and 1967 and made a third Pro Bowl squad in 1969. A consensus first-team All-Pro in 1967, Robinson is a member of the NFL’s all-decade team from the 1960s. He played the final two seasons of his career (1973-74) with the Washington Redskins. Robinson compiled 27 interceptions over the course of his career, 21 of them with the Packers. Senior committee nominees, whose careers were completed at least 25 years ago, must receive the same minimum of 80 percent of the vote from the full selection committee for induction. The two senior nominees will be added to the list of 15 other finalists the selection committee chooses. Either one or two players have been inducted into the Hall of Fame via the senior committee route each of the past nine years.

A monopoly on the means of communication may define a ruling elite more precisely than the celebrated Marxian formula of "monopoly in the means of production." Since man extends his nervous system though channels of communication like the written word, the telephone, radio, etc., he who controls these media controls part of the nervous system of every member of society. The contents of these media become part of the contents of every individual's brain.

Was reading the other day, came across this quote...

Steven Seagal is a an unsuspecting University Professor who needs to stop a Chinese mafiosa (played by Gary Busey ) from kidnapping Seagal's daughter . Seagal is joined by a LAPD Detective (played by Jerry Orbach ). With the odds against them, can they prevent Gary Busey from gunning down an entire hospital's staff just to get to one man ?

Ron Musselman ‏@rmusselmansc Ha ha RT @MarshallMoss: @tloebig @ben_jones88 @rmusselmansc thought having to play Bolden was another sanction on PSU " Can we not do this? Yes, apparently Bolden is visiting LSU, but the string of jokes -- like the ones that Musselman keeps retweeting -- are uncalled for.
