07:35 AM ET 07.17 | Paternoville will now be Nittanyville. The Penn State student group that manages the area outside Beaver Stadium where students camp out for prime football tickets has changed the name of the tent city that spouts up the week before home games in Happy Valley. The also-renamed Nittanyville Coordination Committee said Monday that student officers decided the name change would "return the focus to the overall team and the thousands of students who support it."

One BIG mistake...

we should all refrain from these two posts. Perhaps then the mods will get it that we are tired of PSU T&R boards.

One BIG Mistake that we know about and a repeating pattern of lying and protecting a child rapist for atleast 14 years. That's more like a pattern and lifestyle than a single mistake.

At least it looks like the students have some clue. Finally.

They had also better change "Happy Valley" to "Miserable Meadows."

Wow, newbie.....if you are trolling w/ this you're a hell of a troller.

If you are serious, hope you have flame retardant undies on cause the pushback from defending an enabler to a pedophile is a tough sell and 99.9% of the world is going to be against you.

You know maybe Ol'Jo was just not thinking right in the end but he was not the pervert, his legacy will be tarnished but never forgotten.........never forget the game a few years ago about 5mins befor halftime and you see the ol'guy running down the field to the locker room ......classic.....you know sometimes when you have to go - you have to go!

I digress. I find it ironic that he died almost immediately after leaving* - ever notice how some of these old folks pass right away, after retiring^( i.e. Paul Bryant); Bobby Bowden might be the exception here.


* = got his **** fired

^ = forced out\fired\retired

Not just one, 14 years of denial, running the show and demanding everyone bow to psu football. Wait til the full investigations come out. He will be outed as the fraud that he was.

From what I've read, they are getting a lot of backlash from many psu nuts. Still can't believe the amount of support that administration has gotten.
