Anti-Corbett, Erickson, & BOT Zombies to Rally

Are any of you guys tired of relentless Joe Paterno crazies — you know — the ones that want to posthumously name him head coach and rename every building on campus after him? No? How about all those alumni that constantly call for the entire BOT, President Erickson, and the Governor to resign? Still no? Well then, you’re in for a treat, as you now have the chance to meet these people next weekend!

On September 15th, a group of Penn State supporters (@resignpsubot) will gather in front Old Main to rally against the handling of the Sandusky scandal and the Paterno firing. The rally starts at 10 a.m, and it is expected that they will ask members of the BOT to step down, because that really worked for them the past 50 or so times they’ve tried.

To make this event even better, it’s being held the day of the Navy-PSU game.  As we all know, nothing really says “I love my school!” more than rolling out of bed, rallying with Franco Harris, and heading off to Beaver Stadium to watch a game that will most likely be too close for comfort.

And hey, if we’re all lucky, ESPN and other major news outlets will cover the rally and make us look like anything but football-worshipping crazy people who can’t seem to move on — even if we were dealt a bad hand. Because as a Penn State student, I’d love for a major news outlet to portray my school in this light.

So please, students and alumni, be sure to stop by Old Main before the game on September 15th and voice any displeasure you have about the scandal with people as crazy as this guy. Because, as we all know, the best way to recover from the most devastating scandal in the history of higher education is to never actually move on until some unattainable “justice” is served.
