Penn State Seals Rose Bowl

Congratulations Nittany Lions

We’re going to the Rose Bowl

Joe Paterno lead Penn State to a 49-18 victory.

Read the story at the New York Times

Here are some good quotes from that article (again, by Mark Viera! You’re the man now dog!)

The university announced in April that Paterno would not be given a new contract when his current deal expired after this season. Paterno worked without a contract earlier in his 43-year tenure as the Nittany Lions’ head coach.

Later, Paterno says this

“Everybody’s making a big deal that I don’t have a contract,” said Paterno, who reasserted that he planned to return next fall. “I’ve never even asked for one.”

The article ends with this quote from Derrick Williams.

“Everything that I dream and hoped for has come true,” said the senior wide receiver Derrick Williams, who helped re-energize the program when he committed as the nation’s No. 1 recruit. “We’ve accomplished so much.”

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
