A highly anticipated moment for any soon-to-be-Penn-Stater's summer is just around the corner -- roommate assignments will soon be distributed to the freshmen masses.

We are Penn State. Well, are we? Do we want to be now? Do we want to have our names tied to this institution that immediately raises eyebrows at the very mention of it? Yeah, I think we still do. Because who really is Penn State? The fact of the matter is that the crimes and the almost-certainly-true-but-technically-alleged coverup, heinous though they were, were committed by just a handful of people, a microscopic portion of the 96,519 students and 17,780 faculty and staff that form the technical makeup of the University.

“Alleged” victims no more. After eight days of testimony and 20 hours of jury deliberation, justice has been served. The path in which we traveled to come to a verdict was so arduous that I’m still mentally processing what happened on Friday evening.

"What was it like listening to the victims testify?" That's the question I've been asked the most this week, and one that I anticipate I will be asked for the rest of my life when people find out I covered the Jerry Sandusky trial. And I'm not sure if I have a good answer for it yet.

Maybe anger still lingers from the 2010 Capital One Bowl when Penn State defeated LSU on New Year’s Day in Orlando giving the Tigers their first bowl loss since 2004. Perhaps the animosity is more recent stemming from the 2011 season which saw LSU fail to score a touchdown in over 120 minutes of football against Alabama, losing to the Crimson Tide by way of shutout in the National Championship Game.

It stands to reason that anyone sympathetic to Jerry Sandusky might be a little uneasy right now during jury deliberation, considering the fact that Mr. Sandusky faces 48 counts of sexual abuse -- charges that most people think will put him in jail for the rest of his life. Not Karl Rominger.
