University Deprives Children of Broken Glass, Second-Hand Smoke To Play In

Another season, another set of policies enacted. Luckily, the two newest provisions to Football game day policy have good reason behind their enactment.

New for 2009, glass bottles are not allowed in any of the grass parking lots at Penn State. Not only is broken glass difficult to clean up in grassy areas, it also provides a significant safety hazard to the children and others who play in these lots on game day, students who use the fields for intramural sports and the animals who use these areas as pastoral lands at other times.

The second change is bad news for smokers.

Additionally, in accordance with Pennsylvania law, smoking is no longer permitted inside the perimeter fence of Beaver Stadium. The law, the Clean Indoor Air Act (CIAA), enacted in 2008, names the Department of Health as the Commonwealth agency responsible for implementing the regulations through education and enforcement.

The notice also points out that those leaving the stadium for a smoke break will not be allowed re-entry. I’ve heard the phrase ‘smoking kills’…*puts on shades, David Caruso-style* but never in reference to a game day experience.

Gorman Abruptly Resigns

Head coach of the men’s soccer program Barry Gorman unexpectedly announced his resignation Monday. He leaves a legacy of 22 years of coaching and three Big Ten titles in his wake. Citing “personal reasons,” he has left the team to a nation-wide search for his successor.

“We expected Gorman to be there,” [rising Senior and Co-Captain Andres] Casais said of next season. “He was a father figure to us.”



Oof, that can’t feel good. The move isn’t completely out of the blue, as Gorman was periodically absent during the past few weeks without notice. But from all accounts, his intention to resign was only revealed yesterday. On the abandonment scale, this registers just slightly above “going to the store for some cigarettes and never coming back.”
