PENN STATE. Keep your heads up and support the young men who stayed to play for the university. Pay no attention to the haters. The ones responsible are gone and brighter days are ahead. You'll get the W next week.
BEAT scUM!!!!! (and everyone else)
Thanks for the supportive message, IMC.
You guys just keep your pride. They can't take that away. And there is a lot to be damn proud of at PSU. And it's still 409 in my book. You can erase the wins in some statistics archive but not on the field.
When asked if rooting for PSU last week:
"Not really. Wasn't really a fan before this whole mess. Sure as hell won't be one now. I'd like to see Ohio pull it out to be honest. Just to shut up those that think PSU is still the holy grail of college football."
Yes I did say that and I'm still not a fan. Never will be
Do I wish you anymore losses? No. Reality check was given to those that need it. I am rooting for the players that stayed because they made a commitment. What they are doing is honorable and should be supported no matter how many losses they have. My point was don't abandon the players that stayed even if they don't meet expectations. Hate me if you want to but I meant no harm.
Reality check? A loss was needed for a reality check? After all the shit that's happened the past 10 months? Yeah...
I don't hate you, just trying to give the board the full picture. I don't see the quote as hypocritical, but I didn't want people to think you're sitting around rooting for PSU, which you are not. As I said, the quote is interesting. The thread it comes from is, frankly, pathetic.
Yup thats what this fan base needed is a reality check.. Shavisimo2 have you had a reality check anytime in the last year? I know i have, I guess Irishmanchild diddnt think what we went throught was enough that we need to add an opening day loss to it, just to make sure our spirits got crushed.
Go flame on another board
It's the definition of irony when a Notre Dame fan claims PSU thinks it's the holy grail of college football. Notre Dame hasn't been relevant in 20 years, but keep chasing your pre-WWII glory.
Quintessential domer fan.
They have such a need to feel liked by others that they actually take the time to come over here and kiss ass to Penn State fans while they spew their venom to their own fan base to be liked by them.
They never seem to really be able to get out of the high school mentality.
Get lost domer. Go try to get yourself liked by the "in" crowd on the ND sites...
If sincere, I appreciate your comments. I grew up hating ND. First as a Miami fan, then PSU alum. That said, I have had a hard time hating ND alums. The non-alum fanbase is very hard to take.
Again, I appreciate the comments. I would expect that ND and BC alums should understand the pervasiveness of this issue. And should have a bit more perspective than the broader public.
I'll take your comments for what they are, thank you.
Very well said. +1 sir.
