    It is crazy that they would give the Penn State football coach over 30 million dollars. The state should pull any subsidies given to the school since they have that kind of taxpayer money to hand out.

    well as a leading dirtbag he is just following the norm around NEPA. Being a sex pervert is the areas biggest export.

    From his qualifications and experience, I’d say he is an ideal candidate for a NEPA teacher/coach, priest or prison guard. Aint’a or no?
