More fun with Penn State

Things just aren't looking good up in Slappy Valley these days. Their record against Ohio State and Michigan reached an enimic 8-20 after a 37-17 ass tuning on Saturday. Joe continues to look clueless and conservative in his play-calling. And now, this video posted on YouTube make the "White Out" look like straight up White Trash. Again, our comments are in Bold from the Daily Collegian story.

Days after Penn State's football loss to Ohio State, a YouTube video surfaced featuring several men throwing beer cans and yelling obscenities at two Buckeyes fans.

The rear of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, 417 E. Fairmount Ave., is seen in the video. The fraternity's president, Brendan Wilson (junior-management), said he had no comment when reached by phone last night.

The YouTube account name of the user who uploaded the video was "crazysacc," which is also the AOL Instant Messenger screen name of Pi Kappa Alpha Vice President Gaetano Sacco (junior-film).

Boy, Succo, not only is it MENSA-level to film the video in the first place, it's even smarter to post it on YouTube thinking it's cool. I've done a lot of dumb shit in my life, but I've gotten away with most of it because I never broadcast it on the interwebs. And really bright posting it with a screenname that was traceable.

Sacco was reached by cell phone but had no comment.

By last night, all of the videos posted on YouTube by "crazysacc" had been removed, and the account was canceled.

The State College Police Department is investigating the case, but Sgt. Keith Robb, the officer investigating the case, could not be reached for comment.

What is up with that place? Does anyone comment on ANYTHING up there? I'm convinced the stadium could collapse and, standing in front of the rubble, would be a spokesman saying, "nope. Nothing happened. We have no comment."

In the video, two men with red Ohio State jerseys are seen walking
through an alley that passes behind Pi Kappa Alpha. One man became the target of several open beverages thrown from the crowd, but as he walked farther away, one man in a Penn State T-shirt pursued him and continued the attack, encouraged by a chant of "F--- Ohio" before returning to a congratulatory crowd.

A voice in the video can be heard yelling "pike" -- a nickname for the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity.
"You are the man," said a male voice off-camera. "This dude's from Pittsburgh. He doesn't even need to do it, but he does it."

What the hell does that even mean? Not only am I from Pittsburgh, I'm from McKeesport. I don't recall walking down the street and getting busted with a beer can because I had a blue car and my neighbor was a big fan of black.

Tom Poole, associate to the president for administration, said although the university had released no statement, he had responded to e-mails regarding the issue.

"I don't know what can be done about it," Poole said. "People act like fools."

Smartest thing I've read in this article so far.

He said Penn State President Graham Spanier's office had received "an awful lot of mail."

This is a "terrible impression to give the world about Penn Staters," he added.

Spanier said last night he had no information concerning the incident and had not seen the video.

That's it Graham, keep burying your head in the sand. People that couldn't care less about Penn State or football have now seen the video, and you haven't?

Interfraternity Council President Grant Miller (senior-English) also could not give additional information, but said he believes no Penn State student meant to disrespect any Ohio State student.

Lisa Powers, director of public information, said comments had been made to Columbus, Ohio news stations as well as local news.

Powers said she was "disappointed and saddened" by these students' actions that "could give all Penn Staters a bad name."

No, this incident doesn't give Penn State a bad name. Penn State gives Penn State a bad name. Penn State people are happy to tell everyone that they have the greatest fans on earth. How they're loyal, passionate, classy, and have impeccible attendance. "aww, hell, we get more fans for our spring game than most teams get all damn year." It's arrogant. It's annoying. It's obnoxious.

And yet something like this happens and they have absolutely no defense. "but, but, that's just a small group." Yeah, doesn't matter. You're Penn State. You are the EPITOME of class (allegedly). We heard you didn't do things like this.

Welcome to reality Nitters: you, and your football team, are just like everyone else.

Whoever those guys were at that Fraternity, the one video taping and talking and the one idiot from Pittsbugh that ran up and launched a full beer can at the OSU fan....I have just one word for you: CLASSLESS! You are second class individuals...just like Penn State football is second class to Ohio State!! Scoreboard was revenge enough, but I hope those individuals never get a job and some day find themselves in an alley in the wrong part of town in Columbus! Losers!
