Penn State Beats Ohio State in “Scandal Bowl;” Tom Bradley’s 1st W

Interim Penn State Head Coach Tom Bradley told the media at his postgame press conference:

“This win isn’t about me; it’s about the players and this team. I don’t think any team in the history of college football has been through so much in such a time period and to hang in there and fight their way through it is great.”

And to some extent he has a point, the players are pretty much collateral damage in the Penn State scandal; they are made to suffer somewhat though they have done no wrong on their own. However, to a larger, more relevant extent: Mr. Bradley, would you like some cheese with that whine? Boo Effing Hoo, now is not the time to try and elicit sympathy for you and your bunch.

There are bigger issues and vastly more victimized people to think about right now.

Bradley has not come off very well in most of his media appearances since the scandal broke. If anything, he comes off almost as delusional and stuck in the insulated, egocentric PSU bubble as Paterno, Schultz, Curley et al.

But he did get his first win as Penn State Head Coach today.
