This is surreal.

I don't know what to do.

You know what, screw the administration at Penn State. It's a state institution; someone in Pennsylvania state government just needs to step in and clean house.

I just read the grand jury report and wish that I hadn't.

Paterno's weekly press conference has been canceled. Perhaps bigger announcements are afoot?

This is ruining everyone here. Lives, educations, jobs ... everything is being destroyed in front of our eyes.

This is the most miserable thing I've ever been a part of. Hundreds of thousands of lives are being irrevocably altered by this.

I'm trying to follow some of the rumors on THE TWITTER! and people are saying that Paterno wanted to talk about the scandal during today's press conference, but the school president didn't want him to, and so it was canceled.

I know it seems horrible right now, Peef, and it is horrible, but I think that a Penn State degree will still ultimately be highly valued. People in the real world aren't going to judge academic merit based on an incident within the football program.

He would end up saying the wrong thing and making it worse.

Gotta love the "football only" questions announcement prior to the cancellation.

Its only Tuesday, no way he coaches on Saturday.

I'm a journalism major. I cover sports. My job is based on what I do with Penn State athletics. This changes the whole game.

Make a name for yourself and go get an exclusive interview with JoePa.

I don't think this incident is going to affect your education and future career as others have said, right now everyone is reacting to the news...in the end the culpable parties are the only ones whose reputations/livelihoods will suffer. You'll be fine.

I'm thinking scathing editorial.

if anything, being a witness to this will help you out with your future career.

and when you go on an interview, for the most part nobody cares what school you went to.

This is really the major problem with sports being such an integral part of higher education. If indeed the school administration knew about these issues and refused to act, it is just another instance of universities placing the monetary and commercial concerns of their sporting programs above the overall well-being of their student body. I really think that college sports should just be completely separated from academic life - make it a paid, semi-pro league, and sever this damnable connection between education and sports. The "student-athlete" in major programs is little more than a bloody myth anyway.

Watching a replay of Matt Millen breaking down on Sportscenter. Damn. This dude looks completely bewildered.
