Nitt Links: Don't Underestimate Graduation

New, 13 comments

Seventy-one Penn State student-athletes are scheduled to graduate during Commencement exercises this weekend on the University Park campus.

Student-athletes from 23 of Penn State's 25 varsity sports (men's and women's track and field/cross country are combined) are among the 71 student-athletes that have been approved to graduate. In addition, 14 members of the cheerleading squad and eight members of the Lionettes dance teams are on the approved to graduate list.

I'm as proud of that number as I am the wins. Maybe graduation rates don't make the news, but when they're in the dumpster, everybody knows.

Ex-Penn State running back: Rape case was conspiracy

This could use it's own post, but I've never really bought this whole story. Nothing about rape, accused rape, or anything in between should be taken lightly, but it all seems a little too easy. I'm not a lawyer, I know that seems to be a popular occupation in the blogosphere, so I won't talk about various legal aspects of this case. That being said, I'd enjoy nothing more than to see Scott find some peace in this part of his life. Whatever that might be.
