Really? Crushing, sure. Demoralizing, perhaps. But 9/11? Uh, didn’t people DIE during that?
Now we know where the problem at Penn State is. Watch the video below.
The NCAA dropped the hammer on Penn State and former head football coach Joe Paterno this week. Fans were absolutely devastated by the unprecedented sanctions. But Penn State alumnus Tom Price of Factoryville, Penn., took it to the extreme. He told WNEP-TV in Scranton that he and his wife Sally equated the NCAA’s punishment to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Nearly 3,000 people died in those attacks.
“I just can’t put my arms around it,” said Price. “It was our 9/11 today. I just saw planes crashing into towers.”
