Purple Yeti Roar 27: A Cold Wind A Blown’ From Up North

It’s getting chilly down here in Austin in the middle of July.  Wah, you say?  Yes, but not that kind of chill.  It’s the kind that’s blowing over college football and it’s coming from Happy Valley.  This week I try to stay warm and protected from the goings on at Penn State as well as talking about Joe Paterno, Jerry Sandusky, NCAA, Iowa, Big Ten, SEC, Big 12, Missouri, Gary Pinkel, Kansas State, and Collin Klein.

Crib Sheet: Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving

And all through the house, pumpkin pie was baking and I was aroused (with hunger).  Yup, it’s that time of year again.  This year, I’m planning on laying back and actually watching some competitive football.  For once it will be both for the NFL and college football.  So there’s been a feast of news leading up to turkey day and I wrapped it up in a big ole slice of Crib Sheet.  It’s kinda like fish and chips, but with college football news and less of stink.  I hope.  Here is this week’s fresh Crib Sheet:

Crib Sheet: Closing A Chapter on This Book

I’m already getting stoked because I have some buds coming into town to watch it with me.  In the meantime, here’s this week’s Crib Sheet:

Crib Sheet: Scandals that Rival the Offseason

Here I thought the two last offseasons were brutal for college football what with the realignment talk and sports agent nonsense, but boy was I wrong when the Jerry Sandusky scandal came out last week.  Last week former Penn State defensive coach Sandusky was charged with molesting boys and it all went down from there.  Some top officials resigned, the President was fired, and now winningest coach in Division I (FBS) Joe Paterno was fired.  JoPa apparently knew what Sandusky was doing and did the legal minimum requirement in reporting the situation.  Now, he let Sandusky stay around campus after the incident and more incidents happen.  I know, the higher ups are in charge, but everyone knows that Penn State = Joe Paterno.  Whether it was legal or not, public relation wise he should’ve done more.  Ick.  I’m done with that, on to the Crib Sheet:
