Join SB Nation's Penn State Blog In Supporting RAINN


The folks over at Black Shoe Diaries are supporting the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN) charity.

I wrote a long piece about it for ESPN, and a portion of a book, that now rings completely hollow. I have the original video recording of it in my living room, and I have thought several times over the past couple of days about taking a hammer to it." - Michael Weinreb, on Grantland.com
