Rally for Resignations 2.0 Set for Saturday

Old Main Rally

They’re baaaaaaaaaack. The same group of alumni that brought you the first Rally for Resignations appear to be at it again this home game weekend.

On the Facebook group for the New York City Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association, a message was posted telling of plans for another rally. This time the rally-ers “[intend] to make clear that many alums and fans alike are both supporters of Coach O’Brien’s football program and unhappy with the current leadership at Penn State.”

Though there is no word if the champion of tradition, Franco Harris, will be present, current trustee, Anthony Lubrano, promises to be at Rally 2.0. According to the Facebook message, “this event will be less rhetorical than the first one, and more substantive, offering specific suggestions for action.”

So, instead of just shouting burn the Freeh report, fire Erickson, and impeach Corbett, we might actually hear some new material.

There will also be a question and answer forum to address the proceedings of today’s Board of Trustees meeting, specifically why the university is tackling civil suits from victims of Jerry Sandusky.

For any of those interested in attending — or perhaps those that want to avoid it at all costs — Rally 2.0 will be held “on the East lawn of the IM Building, on the Northwest corner of Curtin Road and University Drive, at 2 p.m.  on Saturday.

I can’t help but wonder if this the best place to have a rally. Tailgates will be in full force in this area. With tailgates comes alcohol, which could lead to a situation that Anchorman can explain best. Ohio State probably hates the NCAA too, so maybe the rally-ers can get a few Buckeye fans in the mix.

So if you’re in the area, grab your anti-NCAA t-shirt of choice and skip on over to see our friends. Just don’t mention Paternoville Nittanyville.

Sandusky Scandal - On November 5, 2011, a 23-page Grand Jury report rocked Penn State to its foundation. As a result of Jerry Sandusky being convicted on 45 of 48 counts sexual abuse against 10 minors and subsequent fallout and alleged coverup by several key school administrators and legendary coach Joe Paterno, these events will forever be a dark stain in the history of our University.
