DescriptionThe NCAA's punishment of Penn State, over the school's inaction and coverup of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal, has prompted a lot of hyperbolic reactions from Penn State alumni and fans. But this one might take the cake: Tom Price, alum and loyal fan, told WNEP, "I just can’t put my arms around it, it’s, to me, it was our 9/11 today. I just saw planes crashing into towers."

Price's wife Sally agreed and blasted the vacation of coach Joe Paterno's 111 victories between 1998 and 2011, "It had nothing to do with the Sandusky scandal. They played hard, they worked hard for those victories and to take them away, we will always feel that he is the NCAA victory leader."

I'm glad to see they're keeping things in perspective.

Yeah, really. I'd imagine the families of 9/11 victims would beg to differ, Penn State alum or not.

Never forget [that they harbored a child rapist].

Maybe it's an apt analogy if he also believes 9/11 was an inside job.

Pretty sure that the vast, vast majority didn't harbor a child rapist.

I haven't been paying much attention to this because, well, I don't give a crap, but goddamn are these people arrogant.
