Come on. There are probably Illinois fans that think the same way. We also have plenty of Chief supporters (not the same, but also some believe racist). To say Penn State should still be painted under the Sandusky tragedy is unfair. You really think nothing has changed? The guy who wrote the letter was at best stupid, maybe worse. Penn State, I am sure, will disassociate from him and everybody will move on.I said this at the time, but this is just another example of why if I were Nike after the Sandusky mess came to light I would have never shipped another plain blue jersey to Penn State again.
The visual identity of that program is inextricably tied up with a poisonous culture. With the idea that things don't have to change. At that football program maybe more so than just about anywhere else, things need to change.
