Brief and to the Point …
>> The Monday column reminds the Pirates’ front office that participation isn’t optional.
>> Totally serious question: If you were Rodney Erickson, president at Penn State, and the NCAA gave you a choice between long-lasting forfeiture of bowls and scholarships or canceling the upcoming season — one or the other, plain and simple — which would you take?
OK, now which would you take if you were just you?
I really wonder if the community as a whole wouldn’t rather just have football at any cost rather than deal with missing an entire season. Even if that means having a very hard time competing in the Big 10 for a decade or longer.
I’ll stay out of it this morning and hear what you have to say.
Should be an interesting morning either way. The NCAA announcement is at 9 a.m.
>> Back to baseball and a small slice of Neal Huntington on Starling Marte from yesterday …
Yeah, and here’s Marte’s box from last night (after the clip above).
>> This was my appearance on KDKA-TV’s ‘Showdown’ late last night. We start out with a lot of Penn State but eventually get to some Pirates and Steelers.
>> I’ll make my weekly visit with the online-only TribLIVE Radio today at noon.
