Players Not Home During Pot Bust, Says Paterno

i_can_haz_name_clearedAt an event last night in Arlington, Joe Paterno threw water on the smoldering pot problem that we posted about earlier this week.

Philly.com had a story about the event.

“That’s been blown way out of proportion,” Paterno said at a function with more than 400 Penn State alumni and boosters in the Washington, D.C., area. “It’s a party, and my guys horsing around with marijuana? You know, we test them all the time. And the four kids who were renting the apartment were not in the apartment when the police got in there.”

The Centre Daily Times had a similar story this morning. The reporter talked to the players’ attorney, Tony de Boef.

“I can tell you that they were not home,” De Boef said. “Like a lot of students on campus, they leave their doors unlocked and there were some friends visiting for the Blue-White game. They actually had not been there for several hours.”

Thank god for blogs, right? Without them, this would never have even been a story!

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.
