It seems that at least some Penn State players have had tee shirts made based on their "We Are ..Penn State" chant. Assuming this is not just a spoof photo, who are these Penn State players mad at? The NCAA or some of their coaches and administrators?
Doesn't seem like the slickest P.R. move.

I can see losing Leach being a pain in the #$$, but I think one could make a case for him being a hard guy to deal with as well. I'd point out the many jobs he interviewed for and didn't get. There were rumors for some time about just that. In addition, he sat jobless for awhile, before getting a job at a pretty bad WSU team.
As a fan, I can see him as being a prtty fun guy to have as your coach though.
As far as his interviewing other schools goes, he worked in Lubbock freaking TExas for 10 years and they had to FORCE him out of town on trumped up charges. To Tech's credit, the single biggest reason he didn't go to U-dub, UCLA, or Miami is that they couldn't afford him. keep in mind the U-dub thingy happened before the Pac12 revenue sharing went through, which in turn enabled Wazzu and Bill Moos to go get Leach.
You touched on a lot of stuff in one paragraph, and I really don't want to rehash the Leach stuff, because it just plain sucks. I am happy he is back in college football, the game; and I am looking forward to seeing what Tech does this season too.
The whorns would be much better off with a coach the quality of Mike Leach.
Leach wouldn't necessarily thrive in that environment.
Buttkissing ain't his strong suit.
"Jerry Sandusky is distraught over the NCAA penalties issued to Penn State's football program for the school's handling of his child sexual abuse scandal and maintains his innocence as he awaits sentencing, his defense lawyer said Wednesday.
Attorney Joe Amendola told The Associated Press in a phone interview that Sandusky told him that even if people believe he is guilty of the crimes for which he was convicted in June, it would be ''ridiculous'' to think Penn State administrators engaged in a cover-up."

Penn State kicker Anthony Fera will transfer to Texas, a source confirmed to ESPN.com’s Joe Schad.
The redshirt junior kicker has two years of remaining eligibility and will immediately compete for the Longhorns’ starting placekicking and punting duties.
The Houston St. Pius X grad and Cypress, Texas, native decided to join the Longhorns after visiting UT on Sunday and Monday.
Fera is the seventh Nittany Lion player who has elected to transfer following the NCAA’s sanctions against Penn State.
On Tuesday, PSU lost starting running back Silas Redd to USC, quarterback Rob Bolden to LSU and tight end Kevin Haplea to Florida State.
Linebacker Khairi Fortt also elected to transfer to Cal, safety Tim Buckley chose N.C. State, and defensive tackle Jamil Pollard reportedly left for Rutgers.
A Penn State board of trustee member filed an appeal Monday afternoon with the NCAA over sanctions levied against the university after the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal.
Three other trustees joined the appeal, which states that the consent decree university president Rodney Erickson signed with the NCAA agreeing to the sanctions is "null and void" because Erickson "lacked the legal authority" to enter into such an agreement without the board's approval.
Trustees and a person with first-hand knowledge of the discussions said the move is a precursor to a federal lawsuit asking a judge to invalidate the sanctions, because trustees expect the NCAA to reject the appeal.

Just said on espn 4 board members have elected to appeal the sanctions. The NCAA has come out and said these sanctions are not eligible to be appealed.
I've never seen anything in my life fail so bad at PR. Are these people ******** or what?

The best thing they can do is put this whole affair in the rear view mirror and move on as quickly as possible. They'd be a lot better served to put out as many positives on PS as possible and just let it die.
