Caught the following thread on Twitter. Sports Illustrated’s ever popular college football reporter Stewart Mandel opines that Corbett’s “frivolous” lawsuit will impel Bill O’Brien to head for the NFL because he’ll tire of the Sandusky thing being at the fore.
I have a few things to say. First of all, the idea of the suit is to restore Penn State to a competitive position, so why should that upset O’Brien? Secondly, the hoopla over this suit is likely to wane long before next football season, fading into the constant level of vestigial background noise associated with the Sandusky scandal. Antitrust suits drag on for years and years, and we don’t even know whether the District Court will even hear this case. Finally, Mandel is full of shit.
