Shocked & Saddened.

I'm shocked by the events leading to the firing of the greatest coach in the history of college football.  I'm trying to wrap my head around it, but I can't.  I am saddened that the University as a whole has lost its dignity because of one selfish offender, and he took everyone down with him.  Try explaining all of this to a 9-year-old {in terms he will understand} who has known and loved JoePa and Penn State football for as long as many years as he is old.  As a graduate of one of the best Universities the Commonwealth has to offer, I still bleed blue and white.  I will not allow this to tarnish my opinions of Penn State.  Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved, especially the innocent victims of these heinous acts. 
WE ARE...

  1. This is a very emotional time for everyone... I bet Daniel is upset. The pictures of the kids with their PSU attire is somehow now sad :( They are so happy in the pictures and proud! PSU is more than football, but in a child's eyes that sometimes is all they see. ~~Mom-Gee~~

  2. He cried when I told him this morning, and said "JoePa!" I could bawl...Penn State is WAY more than football and WAY more than one idiot ruining it for the rest of us & those innocent victims.
