If I’d written this yesterday I would look like a genius. I almost did. But then I happened to catch the end of the WSOP the other night and wrote about that instead. The past few days the nagging feeling I had about this awful story at PSU was that it would get a whole lot worse before it got better. And last night it blew up. From here the possible ramifications are endless.
The student run radio station reported rumors that the senior football players might refuse to play on Saturday. The game could turn into a riot similar to what just happened on the PSU campus.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The NCAA says watching developments in the Penn State case but will defer to criminal investigators for now.
David Baran, a Penn State graduate, is so disgusted with his alma mater that he staged a rally on Tuesday on the steps of Old Main to protest the Jerry Sandusky scandal and to showcase his distaste about the way Penn State handled the sex abuse charges. Baran pulled out his diploma, then a lighter, and set his degree ablaze for everyone to see. The one problem, only 10 supporters...
