This is Another Penn St. Article.
(CNN) – A small plane flew around the Penn State campus on Tuesday carrying a banner that read, “Take the Statue Down or We Will,” a reference to the statue of former head football coach Joe Paterno that sits outside Beaver Stadium.
The statue is among many vestiges left from Paterno’s 46 years as head coach of the Nittany Lions, a run that ended in disgrace in November when he was fired in the wake of a sex abuse scandal involving former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.
“I’m a Penn State employee that thinks we have failed miserably, and I’m sad for the damage that has been done, but this is just upsetting,” Diane Farley, a PSU alumnus who spotted the plane on Tuesday told the Patriot-News of Harrisburg. “It’s just stirring up everything.”
So the last time we blogged at y’all JoPa was still alive and Sandusky was still a free man, fast forward to today JoPa is pushing up flowers and Sandusky is sharing showers (needless to say the world is a better place). But I don’t want to write about how awful a human Joe was, or how common sense isn’t so common on the PSU campus. I do however want to write about how fantastic the Diddler U scandal will play out on ESPN’s “30 for 30” down the road. Like I have a mental picture playing over and over in my mind: Joe Pa dies, PSU fans mourn, the general public is elated, the death penalty is thrown at PSU football, the campus goes into widespread rioting as a result, then the people who will “take down the Peterno statue” march towards happy valley in masses and the two groups meet! Fights everywhere! Dark Night Music in the back round at the fights climax:
The Army has to come in. Man I’m at the edge of my seat just thinking about the Film. I want your comments on what the film will be called. All I have so far is “HorseplayU”.
