Emphasize transparency, tight restrictions and hand down other sanctions to the administration and management. It's not about "complaining about losing our football" - this is a town that turns into the 2nd largest city in the state on Gameday Saturdays. As a resident of State College for the past 4 years, I know firsthand the possible repercussions here.

If you can't recognize the trickle-down effect of a drastic move like shutting down the football program at PSU, then you're pathetic. This is a stadium that has consistently sold out 108,000+ tickets 8 times a year for countless decades. Do the math.
Right - that's what's important here - the trickle-down effect on State College's economy. I am not going to apologize for not giving a flying **** about that.
