I think I have it figured out now. I’ll use “Laser Focus” to deal with “moving forward”. Yeah, dat’s it!

I got the letter below from a local Nittany Lions alumnus who happened to co-reside on my sophomore year dorm floor way the hell back when McKean Hall was East Hall E. This guy, whom I’ll call NITTANY1, is an intense character, one who had no use for Joe Paterno, and who spent far too much time in the Army not to have come out unscathed mentally. And thus, with that in mind, please understand that I found this letter just as inscrutable as Gerald Hodges’ Tweeted rap lyric [pull quote], and as much of a head-scratcher as you will, save for its general theme that perhaps suggests that Penn State should ditch the Big Ten and join the ACC.
PENN STATE RESIGNS BIG TEN
No vision. Why couldn’t Penn State have done last spring what Notre Dame just did? We have NO future in the Big Ten and have NEVER been welcome. Now we’re hated by them worse than, well, Notre Dame. Why are we granting them our essence? You’re dropping trou in front of a Nebraskan. Do you know how D E A D the Big Ten schools are?
Karin and BSCGator are going to Kentucky – Florida Saturday. Two have-nots, but very different, vibrant venues.
“Just as an urn made of clay lowered into a well eventually breaks, so too must all generals die in battle.” —NITTANY1
Vacate the Big Ten “because it’s the just and righteous thing to do for us at this difficult time. Let us take this respite to find our way. Thank you.” use tissue. Now then, you take it in the ass the next 5-10 years the whole time re-building yourself and eliciting this GROUNDSWELL of sympathy that has conferences begging for you to join. And you know who’ll be first in line. To quote the esteemed Beano Cook ten years ago: “What do the Big Ten and Spain have in common? They have both seen better days.”
The next 5-10 you’re playing a schedule like Charleston Southern while our corps of blonde virgin fans and alums is preaching sportsmanship, rebuilding, and NMF child-molesting. That shouldn’t be hard; it’s the same line of bullshit nurtured while Joe was there.
You get Notre Dame home-and-home, Pitt home-and-home. Three Big Ten’s, couple ACCs, say, an SEC home-and-home. WTF else do you need? You’re getting laid in purgatory FFS!
Then in 2020,21,or 22, Viola! You’re the ACC, or SEC, or Big 12, or Mrs. Notre Dame.
Viola, indeed! Any comments? [suppressing a belly laugh]
I do want to know about the blonde virgin fans, though.
