In case you were wondering, PSU is a 6-point favorite over Ohio at the moment...Line opened at -9...Total is 44.5
Best news this year!
"You can take bowl games and you can take external things from people, but you can't take a warrior's heart."
Yea except the reason they did it was because of the line "touching you....touching me!".
What's next, getting rid of "Heeeeeey Hey baby! I wanna know oh-oh-oh, would you be my girl" because it has the words "baby" and "girl" in the same general vicinity?
The absurdity that is Penn State is hell-bent on permanently changing PSU football traditions, nickle and dime, to the name of political correctness. Even though NO ONE would have even realized that these things were remotely polically incorrect until Penn State actually removed them.
PSU Rocks was probably my favorite pre-game and in-game tradition. Every school in America uses some version of it...but we will no longer use it because the author did some bad things a very long time ago.
Black Shoes. Basic Blues. No Name. All Game.
disagree the students enjoy that part of the game
Well still enjoy he game just fine, nobody goes into a game going"I can't wait to sing sweet caroline"
“If you remember me, then I don't care if everyone else forgets.” ― Haruki Murakami
So you wish they kept playing sweet Caroline?
I wish it was a decision left to the coaches and fans, and I wish it wasn't a decision that was driven by a faux football scandal.
Personally, I thought they overplayed Sweet Caroline by a million times. Once a game is enough.
Pretty sure the next act the BOT will make will be to revise the Alma Mater to remove the line about "when we stood at childhood's gate".
In all honesty, I am happy they are removing Sweet Caroline as it never belonged at PSU as a "tradition"...leave that to the Redsox
My 27-20 prediction is almost dead on then!
whoever downvoted em for this comment can *EDIT: LANGUAGE* zombie nation music is way better, but while we are busy taking away things that the student section enjoys and signs along to ohio state is adding stuff to the student section, id rather gain something then take something away

Any word on his decision?
Agree! i could care less about the song itself--but where does it all stop! Are you f'n kidding me! PLEASE for the love of GOD can someone in the position to stop giving into the masses stand up for PSU. If you want to stop playing the song fine-but not for that reason. I didnt or most all of us never were child molesters, one man was-period! This garbage better stop. I guess I should turn in my badge because of some police officers who dont hold up the integrity of wearing one.
And while Im ranting-I dont think the ribbon is necessary either for the players to wear. They did not do anything to anyone. While they are connected because of the circumstances-they dont need to be related to this incident. the reminder will always be there-whether these young men want or not. Let them play football for the school they love-thats it!!

I didn't drop the downvote Roaringlion, but way to act like a tough guy...grow up.
not a fan of ghost downvotes, at least send some sort of reasoning,
relax man, it's the internet. Save the anger for things that actually matter.
Stuck with Temple

@espn four straight losing seasons?? You are out of your mind. #WEARE #PSU
If anyone is into Vegas activity (for entertainment purposes only of course) this is a glorious time to place bets on PSU as the line is artificially depressed. So much doom & gloom from "experts".

#Spanier's forthcoming indictment, was my MAJOR midweek event. Expected it to have been wed. or th., but it's coming. All can see that now.
No one cares about that. If it's not negative, don't bother pointing it out to the rest of the country!

So you're saying we should strive to be just like every other school?
