Former PSU Player Lavar Arrington Unhappy with Program’s New Direction



All the buzz today is about the introduction of former New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien as the new head college football coach in Creepy Valley.

By Thursday, everyone knew O’Brien was taking over at Penn State; becoming the successor to Joe Paterno. Today was his formal introduction. So a lot of PSU people are very excited about this alleged “new day” for the program.

Former Linebacker at Linebacker U. Lavar Arrington? Not so much.

Here’s what he’s said via his social networks:

PSU is hiding something there’s way more going on there! By the board doing what they’ve done they have in their minds effectively made Joe pattern and the football team a scapegoat When in fact they are the very people that should’ve been fired due to the lack of action! Alums I will always love you and the Penn State I knew But until there’s a new board and new leadership they can have their corrupt/disgusting school that they’ve created

I’m done all my PSU stuff will be down before obriens introduction! We are! No more for me!


So the new regime has begun, and Arrington won’t be on-board. His main points of contention are more with Jerry Sandusky and the University board than they are with O’Brien himself. However, it’s great to see some individual thinking here. Not just mindless groupthink/conforming to the institution.
