    I dunno ... I think suspending her was a bit extreme. The AD could have simply told the coach to tell her to tone it down, or get off Twitter like some coaches do.

    If you suspended every student at colleges that play Penn State in any sport for jokes, T-shirts, comments, etc., they might not be able to field a team.

    Yeah, can't have someone connected to a CATHOLIC university start talking smack about pedophiles... it would have made the priests on campus nervous.

    Friend of mine named her team at a bar trivia contest Sandusky Day Care.

    If the jokes were aimed at the victims, that's one thing.

    If they were aimed at Sandusky or PSU itself -- tough fucking shit.

    They earned everything they get.

    That's either awesome or terrible, depending on how you look at it.

    Where would "Uncles With Benefits" rank? Heard that one at a bar trivia contest awhile back.

    Pretty much. What she did wasn't so smart, but suspending her seemed like an overreaction, too.

    I have a friend who thinks making jokes about child-rapists isn't that big of a deal.

    Well, its obvious your friend has twins at every school in the Big Ten. This stuff will go on for a while and there isn't much that can be done to counter it.

    I get that. It just seems after all the publicity surrounding the whole thing, it amounts to just piling on. Everyone has had their say. At what point, does everyone begin to move on?
