There’s remorse… and then there’s Penn State.

Effing victims.

Penn State trustee Albert L. Lord said he is “running out of sympathy” for the “so-called” victims of former Nittany Lions assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, according to an email sent to The Chronicle of Higher Education.

By the way, Lord is an alumni-elected trustee who’s currently seeking re-election.  Nice!

    I’ve said before that penalizing the program really doesn’t penalize the right people. The ones responsible are most likely not the people who currently run the school. A douche like that makes me rethink that position.

      The only way things will change is if you punish the program(s).

      (It won’t change the abuse itself, but it might change the culture that resulted in good men like Paterno making unforgivable errors in judgment)

  2. I hate that school and their culture. I hated everything about them when they blamed the victims, then realizing what they were doing, they then tried to march in support of the victims, with all their hypocrisy dripping out of their mouths. I hope PSU walks through a land of misery for eternity.

      “Hate” is a bit strong of a word, don’t you think? 99.999% of PSU fans/alums had absolutely nothing to do with Sandusky’s transgressions and any subsequent cover-ups by TPTB, and I an assure you the vast majority of PSU alums are beyond embarrassed over the whole ordeal, and are certainly not making any excuses for previous heinous acts that might have been covered up by various PSU brass.

      Sure, there are some PSU fans who are fanatical in nature and have questioned victims on their various message boards and such, but again they are the overwhelming minority overall.

        And yet there are petitions to reinstate the statue of Paterno. I think they may be embarrassed, but still callous and in denial

          I personally know many highly educated PSU alum, and they ALL think PSU was railroaded and Paterno got a bad rap. Never heard any of them say anything about the victims, their first (and last) thought was for their school.

    Seriously, some of those kids got behind the scenes access to PSU football that costs guys like Albert a small fortune. Talk about ungrateful.

    PSU per the article has paid out $93 million in damages to victims so far. That is very manageable with their donor base and Big 10 TV money. Heck, that’s equivalent to only a new IPF, new stadium locker rooms, and recruiting lounge in UGA terms. The victims haven’t even drawn blood yet.

    The post trauma from childhood sexual assault can, even with the best therapist and support, persist for a person’s entire life. As far as I’m concerned, P State should have gotten the death penalty for what was allowed to happen there and people like this jackass should be put in a shower with Jerry if they don’t think it was that bad.

      And the victims came from backgrounds that made access to therapist unlikely. It is unbelievable that he is so heartless.

  10. The place should have been burnt to the ground and anyone who felt sorry for them over the treatment by the NCAA should be ashamed. Some things need to be resolved by whatever mean are necessary. PSU gave up any right they had to be a member of the NCAA when they hid Sandusky’sissues for the sake of the football program’s reputation.

    All you need to know about PSU’s level of remorse is that their current head football coach turned a blind eye to sexual abuse at his previous place of employment.

    Count me in with the folks who think PSU’s punishment for the Sandusky scandal should’ve started at the death penalty and risen from there as further upper-level administrators were implicated.

    Any number of PSU fans will tell you they’re very sorry for what happened, but I’d wager that at least half of them are more sorry about the (ultimately minimal) penalties the FB program received than the crimes themselves. Comments like those from the dipshit trustee just prove the point.
