Never mind your horrendous 55 and 42 record--in Division I football, at Penn State--since 2000, apparently, year in and year out, about ten percent of your team is suspended for something or other:
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Penn State tight end Andrew Quarless was suspended indefinitely Wednesday for an unspecified violation of team rules, the sixth player suspended in the offseason.
Quarless could be the second coming of Kyle Brady. And, for some reason, he can't walk from College Avenue to Beaver Avenue without breaking six hundred unspecified team rules.
Now, I know, a college football team is made up of a bunch of young guys. And young people are stupid. And young people in college are stupid and they're drunk. So they're double stupid.
And there's nothing wrong with that.
Lord knows, if there's ever a time to be drunk and stupid, it's when you're young enough to be that drunk and stupid and still be able to walk away, fully intact, from whatever it is that you've done.
But, Joe, a lot of your players aren't even doing that. They're winding up in jail.
Like Maurice Humphrey.
Some of your players--good players--are killing people.
So, if you aren't winning football games, and year in, year out, about ten percent of your team is suspended, indicted, or beating or murdering people...
It's not a failure of your Great Experiment.
It's just time for someone else to put the lab coat on.
