Penn State's Zordich: "We're proud of who we are"

Published: Wed, July 25, 2012 @ 3:49 p.m.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — More than 30 Penn State football players say they’re staying in Happy Valley despite NCAA sanctions that will keep the Nittany Lions out of a bowl game for the rest of their careers.

Flanked by more than two dozen teammates, seniors Michael Mauti and Michael Zordich vowed to restore Penn State to greatness after an unprecedented child sex abuse scandal that shattered the program’s image as a place where “success with honor” was the rule.

“We want to let the nation know that we’re proud of who we are,” Zordich said Wednesday. “We’re the true Penn Staters, and we’re going to stick together through this. We’re going to see this thing through, and we’re going to do everything we can for the university. We know it’s not going to be easy, but we know what we’re made of.”

I remember the glee, from many schools including PSU last year, about the punishment that that Ohio State received.
That was kid stuff compared to this tragedy. I don't know how PSU can ever recover from this stigma. I'm sorry to say that It will probably take a generation to recover.

That is a great sentiment that the players expressed. To make Penn State great they have to make sure that they are good examples and change their past bad habits; no partying, no drinking, no taking advantage of girls, no fighting, no steroids. None of the stuff they all did in the past. This can be a new beginning for everyone. But it remains to be seen if old habits don't resurface. We'll be watching, boys.
