* Penn State blog "There Is No Name On This Jersey" says charges will be filed in the incident in Happy Valley last weekend when a
* Penn State officials were quick to point out that the dick "from Pittsburgh" in the now-infamous video wasn't a student there but rather goes to Pitt. Have to be honest and say, the only thing I didn't like about that statement - calling him the "main guy" in the videotaped assault - is that seems to imply he was some lone gunman. He was just the most prominent asshole. Trust me, this little shit didn't throw all the damn beers you saw in the clip.
* Black Shoe Diaries said just that in this post.
* Run Up The Score asks if it could have all been stage.
One of the reasons to have a blog is to be able to put forth one's own, unique opinion. Whether folks agreee or not. Well...
Yesterday I was checking up on the story at BigTenTailgate, who seems to have been out in front of this. They had a bunch of links up to what others were saying about the story. One of them was to was to a site that I've never been to or heard of before called Your Mother Slept With Wilt Chamberlin. In reading their post, the YMSWWC's "Thomas the Terrible" had this to say...
"Obviously no fan of any school deserves that type of treatment. That fraternity shown in the clip will be severely disciplined. And the little smiling turd “from Pittsburgh” - and any others who can be identified - should be prosecuted.
I don’t want to hear from anybody that “it’s worse at Ohio State” or “this school does it”, too. That is the reason this type of behavior continues and seems to escalate every year . Enough is enough it’s time to act like adults. Or do we have to wait until somebody is seriously injured or worse?
As for as the those Penn State fans you’re all pussies. You’re all real tough backed by at least a hundred people against what three guys? And for the Penn State fans that just stood there and did nothing, you’re actually worse. Because you didn’t have the courage to do what was right.
According to those morons on the video, Fuck Ohio? Not today - Fuck you!"
You know, folks, I thought what Thomas said was simply brilliant. Especially since this is what I wrote about the incident the day before on the MZone...
"Get what they were asking for? Are you out of your mind?! NOBODY deserves that treatment at ANY college football game.
The University needs to do something about this. Immediately. That fraternity shown in the clip should be severely disciplined. And the little smiling turd "from Pittsburgh" - and any others who can be identified - should be prosecuted.
Oh, and guess what - I don't want to hear from anybody that "it's worse at Ohio State" or "they do it, too." That is the reason this bullshit continues. Enough excuses. It's time to end this crap. Or do we have to wait until somebody is seriously injured or worse?
And to the laughing DICK who shot the video - you're a complete fucking asshole. And a pussy at that. You're real tough backed up by a mob of hundreds against two guys. And to all the Penn State fans who stood by and did nothing - shame on you. You're all just as guilty.
According to those morons on the video, Fuck Ohio? Not today - Fuck Penn State!"
Seriously, dude. Not cool. Don't just change a few words and pass it off as your own. We've been down that road here before and we don't like it.
UPDATE: Just got an email from Thomas who admitted he paraphrased from the post and apologized. Really appreciated that. Wanted to say case closed and best of luck to Thomas with his site in the future.
