The volcano, which is located...

RIP TailGreat: 3 ways Penn State can fix its latest self-inflicted PR blunder

My initial reaction to TailGreat’s cancellation can be found on my Twitter feed. Since then, I’ve mostly moved on from the shock with a hint of rage… mostly. There was so much wrong with how Penn State handled this situation, if it were any other athletic department, I’d say it was shocking. You simply don’t hand out 800ish free iPads to your athletes, then turn around...
