Condemning Franco and Ziegler for defending PSU, but says its a real shame that OSU had to miss a bowl game because of a coach who was fired. What a dumb ass. i guess we should feel bad for those players who took all the extra benefits and are now paying the price (and a very mild one considering their many offenses and basically telling the NCAA to F-off) for it.
What Franco and Ziegler does feels good but has zero positive impact. If you think that actions like this makes Emmert or anyone outside of our program look upon PSU and Paterno more favorably then you need to step outside of your echo chamber.
I think you are a good poster and I know it feels good, but I hope this is the end of this sort of behavior from Franco.
Ignorance is blissios...
F the NCAA
F the BOT
Yeah, cant say I agreed with much of that either...but you are more creative than I haha.

It snot even defending what they did. This jackass is basically saying we got what we deserve and we should feel bad for OSU because they are undefeated and missing a bowl, despite the fact they clearly broke actual NCAA rules and pretty much got a slap on the wrist. Not really going to debate whether what Franco and Zeigler did was right or wrong, but I sure as hell don't need some hack covering PSU telling me how I should feel bad for the poor poor Buckeyes. Jones is almost as bad as Giger.
I replied to his tweet letting him know that he didn't do any favors for PSU by attempting to gain fame through the Scandal.
disagree- someone has to stand up for whats right and defend Joe and PSU. The man did more good for this university than any one man has done for ANY institution, athletically and academically. Anyone who knows Joe, knows he wouldnt knowingly cover up somethign as horrific as this.The fact he was erased from PSU history this year, and the fact we didnt even ackowledge the man in his time of death is an absolute joke. Thank god we still HAVE people like Franco Harris, who wont cave to media pressure, when a wrong has occured. Will it change anything? No...........but niether will taking it laying down.
Does anyone know what they even did? All the tweets say is that they went to talk to Emmert, who then fled and called the police.
If they got aggressive and warranted the call, then fine. But I think it's unfair to assume anything without something more to go off of than 140 characters.
Seriously, what is the point of what Franco is doing?
If it is to be a dick to Emmert then mission accomplished. If it is to get Emmert to rethink his opinion of PSU then I don't think this will be very effective. If it is to get the media to re-think or re-formulate their narrative of Paterno and PSU then I don't think it will be effective.
Good point. Shouldn't assume.
Franco can chase Emmert to the end of the earth. Every single alum can rally and create one big "F the NCAA group" and everyone outside of the alum would love it and, heck, everyone outside of the fandom of penn state would love it. the matter of fact is is nothing is gonna change. the entire NCAA knows how we feel. they all know we wanna punch everyone of the persons responsible for our sanctions in the face. they know that. emmertt knows that. it's just the fact that nothing will change in the end. absolutely nothing. so why waste time chasing the president around, knowing damn well he knows how we all feel about it, including franco? just let it go. some people do not grasp that. what's done is done, and nothing at all will change that. franco chasing him around is not gonna change how he feels about it or change the sanctions.
"Who's Dan Morgan?"
No idea how all these hacks end up writing for the PSU market.
And +1 to Itzsessil
"Whoever’s trying to kill me isn’t getting the job done. But one day, I’m going to punch that f___r in the face."
He is a nobody and irrelevant.
That said, he tries WAY too hard to sound unbiased and be the smartest guy in the room. And that trying makes him look like an absolute dumbass at times. This is one of those times. That Ohio State players comment about fairness is honestly one of the most retarded things I have ever read in print. And I mean no offense to those with special needs as I hold dear someone like that very close to my heart and who is a big part of my life; however, no adjective or synonym of the word "stupid" does his tweet any justice.
The shit flying from the crows near Thomas building contain more intelligence than that.
Follow me on Twitter @rayraycotto
Once I read that on Twitter I unfollowed him. What a jackass... I got the same message as well. I have recently started to not like his account with some bizarre tweets.. so it is a good time for me to unfollow lol
You take some heat on here, but this is easily your finest post ever IMO.
"A lion does not concern himself with the opinions of the sheep"- Glenn Carson
I know Ben is a 247 member, I would love to see him come on here and defend himself. I would actually respect him then and give my opinion of him a second look.
Until then he'll always have questionable ethics in my eyes. Pimping himself out to the majority to get his name in the lights. He'll do anything to get a new follower.
So much fail in your post IMO.
As far as Ben Jones goes, he is an idiot.
Ben Jones is a small small state college media boy that just panders to the national pundits and used the scandal to get his name out there. Joke of a "journalist" that won't ever get out of State College or the small time State College websites.
Jones is a hack. I do not know why everyone gets wound up by the junk he tweets or writes. I just ignore it.
Ben Jones is a farkin icehole
"A bowl game ain't nothing but a vacation." - Gerald Hodges
Is that his full time job? does he actually get paid from whatever local magazine or internet stuff he does?
Emmert sways to the public opinion because he is a prototypic politician, now there are more dissentions in the media comparing how the PSU punishment is handled and the fairness of it in comparison to other wildfire out there. The successful 2012 campaign and BOB selected as the COTY essentially threw a pile of shit on Emmert's face. I think any news challenging the integrity of NCAA and Emmert will brought forth to the media how they dole out punishment for any infraction in the future as compare to what they gave PSU. If it is worth anything else maybe NCAA will finally recognize Emmert as an idiot and retire him.
Nice Johnny Dangerously reset.
I unfollowed him a long time ago. Guys an idiot
Ben Jones is a twit
