Stephon Morris @12_darKnight
We have chosen to stay at PSU & other opposing coaches are outside our apartment. Was that the intentions of the NCAA #LeaveUsAlone #WeAre
I thought this was pretty telling and worthy of a discussion outside the Twitter feed.

Yesss. Morris. The man.
Damn, that's intense. Opposing coaches can show up at their doorstep? INSANE!

This is one of the most telling outcomes of this whole situation. The NCAA can say whatever they want but nothing they do to us will change the culture and attitude of bigtime college athletics. In many ways the sanctions will only serve to expose that.
Opposing coaches are there? Wow...call the cops and have them arrested for trespassing. That will make it a criminal matter, and allow Emmert to handle accordingly.

Hope Fitz hooks them
PENN STATE FOREVER
+1 Good for you Morris....... Yeah the NCAA bypassed their own rule for one thing. To make sure PSU Footbal was dismantled and to hinder its recovery. This had nothing to do with their care for our players and their future. Emmert is a liar and a hypocrit....
Most of them participate in the donkey shows with Emmert
I also find it funny, during the mike and mike interview, BOB said most of the coaches aren't even giving him the professional respect to call and say that they are recruiting PSU player/or will listen if PSU players call them...
I am so glad the NCAA turned it into a meat market...but, its all about what is right for the players?
before any coach can step on campus...they should have to fight him in a steel cage match
shows these student atheletes are above college football, the ncaa, and all the shady coaches out there that make millions and care about winning more than they do producing quality people.. the whole thing is ridiculous.. would love to see the players post pictures of these coaches snooping around their apartments..
Actually, yes, Stephon. That WAS the intention of the NCAA.
And Penn State has a "cultural" problem. LOL
Honestly, i'm literally moved by the maturity and integrity of our football players. I can't say that at their age I would be sacrificing my own personal interests/goals for the better of the team/school. Not saying they can't reach their goals, but every athletes goal is to win a championship. I think it speaks volumes of the very culture that has been attacked by the NCAA. Sorry Mr. Emmertt, these kids are living proof you are wrong!
"Simply put, success in LSU football is essential for the success of LSU" - then president of LSU, Mark Emmert in 2004 after firing head coach Dinardo.
"Indeed,the reverence for Penn State football permeated every level of the University community. That imbalance of power and its results are antithetical to the model of intercollegiate athletics embedded in higher education-" Mark Emmert 7/2012
Only PSU has the problem - it's fine for any other program.
Would love to get some pictures of whichever coaches are there.
I can picture Urban out there: "Stephon? Stephon are you home? C'mon, answer the door Stephon."

Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
"Stephon, I had a dream. God told me you were going to come to OSU and win me a national title...."
any of you guys on campus? someone needs to get pictures of these coaches and post them somewhere so everyone knows which schools are scumbags
I was thinking it would be funny if the players did it
Everyone retweet that. I'm disgusted by that.
Particularly galling considering his predecessor Myles Brand called us the model university for athletics and academics. Many more people have respect for Brand than Emmert, that's for sure.
"A lion does not concern himself with the opinions of the sheep"- Glenn Carson
How about SportsCenter including stories on Lane Kiffin recruiting Silas and comments from all the SEC coaches as well. This really shows a great message and exactly what the NCAA wants. Clearly PSU is the only school who puts football first. This is so ironic and contradictory that it's laughable. They want guys to ruin their academics by transferring schools, dealing with whether credits transfer, losing their friends, etc. because football can't come first. Whatever. Somehow these sanctions need to be overturned stat.
I believe Lubrano also mentioned that when the NCAA did audits of the athletic department, they would not only commend PSU for the way they did things, they would bring in other people to show them the example we were setting. But now all of a sudden we're out of control. Yeah, OK.
I read that tweet and suggested they find an audio recording of the We Are! chant from Beaver Stadium and blare it out the windows, prepare them for what they are going to hear all season!!!!
