Penn State Football: Nittany Lions Will Continue to Divide Nation in 2012
"Many will never forgive the actions of those in charge of the program and their disdain has spilled over to their feelings for this year's team, and likely beyond.
Penn State Nation has banded together—even tighter than before—in an effort to show unity and support for the program in this embattled time period.
The part of me that wants to celebrate is angry with the administration that didn't convince me they know the error of their ways, and the blind supporters that still put "the program" before the moral responsibility.
It's hard not to brand this program with a negative connotation going forward.
Schools like Miami (Fla.) deal with a negative stigma because of issues in the past that pale in comparison to Penn State's transgressions.
I work to remove generalizations from most things I care about—even sports.
In time, that'll help me soften my view of Penn State. But I certainly can't speak for others who may have already decided to hate them for eternity."
