Al Michaels and Howard Stern discussed the extremely delicate Penn State situation on Monday's show. In true Stern fashion, he does not tiptoe around the outrage and disgust he feels about those who were allegedly responsible and covered up the unfathomable scandal that has rocked sports in the last week. The majority of Stern's venom is directed at Mike McQueary, the man who saw one of the alleged sexual assualts take place. His inaction has been severely questioned although he believes he did take appropriate action.
Unfortunately, Michaels brings up a depressing point. It's apparent that many were aware of the unimaginable accusations against one of the most prominent public figures at Penn State for as long as a decade and simply hoped it would never be discovered. Because of this, many kids were directly put in harms way because he was still allowed to be apart of his foundation and make use of the facilities at Penn State. It's sad, but it's looking likely that we haven't reached rock bottom yet.
You could actually vote for more than one on the Heisman poll, but we won't let facts get in the way, will we?
Oh, speaking of snafus, what is a boxcore? I'd run a spellcheck before being immature and posting every mistake you can find on TV. You're not immune to them either, it turns out.

@CollegeWolf no, call me crazy, but it's a little amusing when someone who doesn't actually work in TV sits there and says OOOOOH, THEY MADE A MISTAKE while doing live TV can't even write a column without a typo. And, oh, don't post something adds up to 167% when it's obvious he never saw the graphic and didn't bother to check how the voting was done. But that won't stop him from throwing out the lie anyway.
I wonder if the ESPN Heisman thing might have to do with how the Heisman voting is conducted, with voters listing multiple players?
I also snapped a photo of my TV screen with the dueling refs pointing in opposite directions during last Sunday's Titans/Steelers game. Pretty funny to see it play out like that.
