"As a father, my heart goes out to all victims of child abuse and I understand what Penn State and the NCAA had to do in issuing unprecedented sanctions on Monday. It is a difficult time, but, we, as a Penn State community, have to accept the sanctions and resolve to move forward and build on our strong traditions of excellence in the classroom, in the community and in athletic competition.
Penn State is a great university and a great place to go to school. All the things that make it world-class are still in place: strong academics, a bright and enthusiastic student body, passionate fans and a supportive alumni base.
We are committed to doing things the right way and have chosen to forge ahead with a positive attitude. We believe in the future of Penn State! With Pride, We Unite As ONE!"
Statement from Penn State basketball coach Patrick Chambers regarding NCAA sanctions.
Big fan of Chambers. Another guy with the stones to get us through this.
Article from Jeff Goodman over at CBS:
"Pat Chambers' voice boomed with passion, intensity and pride as he spoke to CBSSports.com just hours after hearing the news that the Penn State football team would receive a four-year postseason ban that was as severe as anything except the "death penalty."
"Football has carried this university for years," said the Nittany Lions men's basketball coach. "Maybe we can help football for once." "
Penn State is a tough enough job, but now it's even more difficult for men's basketball coach Pat Chambers in the wake of the massive sanctions placed on the football team. However, Chambers isn't feeling sorry for himself at all.
I get it that psu coaches are under the AD and will make
comments about accepting the sanctions because that is
what the university did. They have no other option. But I
really respect the comment from Tom O'Brien, NCS football
coach that said, (I'll try to quote), "Discipline at the top not
the bottom that is a basic concept of leadership, but the
ncaa wouldn't know about that."
