The details of the incident, if accurate, are
"Two grad students (husband and wife)that I know were driving on campus and being followed closely by a white car. The white car passes them and then cuts them off and pins them against the curb. The driver gets out and starts screaming obscenities at the woman (who was driving), flipping both middle fingers and repeatedly saying "do you know who I am!". The irate screaming and cursing by the driver of the white car continues long enough for the campus police to arrive at which time the driver of the white car takes off. The woman is so shaken up that the police ask here if she's OK to drive. The only thing they can think of that set the driver of the white car off was if they were driving too slow. They were both in some state of shock the rest of the day that Joe Paterno, a man they both admired, could act this way."
If true, this ranks very high in the coaching meltdown pantheon, right up with former U-M coach Gary Moeller's public self-immolation. Of course, maybe the husband and wife were driving so slow, they made Joe Pa's trip :02 seconds longer. And we all know how upset that would make him.
In their post about the incident, Black Shoe Diaries closed by saying, "It's times like this I wish I had some mad photoshops skills because this is just begging for it. Have at it Galen, Orson, and Yost."
Well, your wish is our command as we bring you another exciting addition of the MZone's new - and one my favorite - features, "Coming soon to a theater near you..."
