A Belated T's and P's to the Parents of a PSU Quarterback?

Right, so, I had part of a T and P's (thoughts and prayers) post worked up last week before I scrapped it and carried on. Personally, I have a hard time making fun of Penn State and their fans. If the recent series was split or even one sided in their favor I could possibly muster up some contempt, but I can't help but look at Iowa's football schedule and see a 'W' whenever Penn State is listed.

It's like that kid half your size. You put your palm on his head and he swings wildly and mightily. He tries and tries but they just can't win. In short, We Own Penn State.

So what does that have to do with parents of Penn State quarterbacks? Well, if this rumor is true, and I doubt it is, they deserve a lot of our prayers, and for many reasons. Over at Hawkeye Report's Iowa football board a member that goes by the name of NoJustice reports that a "person attending the ISU game" happened to run into the "parents of a Penn St quaterback." At the Will Call window. In Ames.


With today's goofy technology I suppose one could enter the incorrect destination into a phone or in-car navigation device. But you would think road signs pointing to Ames and or Iowa City would provide a little guidance. Again, I doubt this is true and am willing to give these people the benefit of the doubt. I looked around the web to see if this was posted anywhere else, even Cyclone Fanatic, but nothing.

But if it is true, well,


Hawkeye Links,
