Will the Penn State Football Fallout Affect the Hockey Program?

By Andrew Gerbosi

This is not as much of a posting as it is an honest question.  I am not going start throwing out my opinions of what has happened over the course of the last week in State College, Penn., but with an athletic director vacancy at Penn State, there are going to be questions about the other sports programs being affected by the chaos.  Will the events that have occurred in the football program shine a negative light on just that sport or all of the teams at the University?  Would you, as a parent, send your child to play a sport at that school (excluding football)?  Would you, as a prospective student, want to commit to play a sport at Penn State (again, excluding football)?  The rioting did not make the current student population look great to anyone coming into or considering playing for any Nittany Lions' program.  How long before Penn State can restore their image?
