  • Yet More Wisdom from Frank Clemente | The Penn Stater Magazine
    That s one of the things I learned from watching the 11 minute video The tributes on the video range from touching colleague Sam Richards says Clemente was one of the people I secretly hoped would never retire to touching and hilarious colleague Eric Silver likens Clemente to Garrison Keillor on steroids The most revealing words of all no surprise here come from Clemente himself He recounts his academic career how it moved from research to administration to teaching and how he had never envisioned himself as a teacher He didn t show up on campus in the late 1970s with the goal of making himself a popular and influential teacher Says Clemente It turned out it was a joy just waiting to be found How beautiful And inspiring Thanks to the crew at Onward State for pointing me to the link on Twitter Lori Shontz senior editor Share this Email Print Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google LinkedIn Tumblr Like this Like Loading Related Entry filed under Uncategorized Tags Department of Sociology Eric Silver Frank Clemente Onward State Sam Richards sociology Mysterious Health Challenge Takes Mel Goldstein Off the Air A Great Day for Nittany Lion Soccer Alumni Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in Email Address never made public Name Website You are commenting using your WordPress com account Log Out Change You are commenting using your Twitter account Log Out Change You are commenting using your Facebook account Log Out Change You are commenting using your Google account Log Out Change Cancel Connecting to s Notify me of new comments via email Trackback this post Subscribe to the comments via RSS Feed Recent Posts The Olympic Aspirations of Tyler McCandless The Positive Outlook of Brett

  • President Barron’s Comments on the NCAA Settlement | The Penn Stater Magazine
    had a responsibility to look at institutional control I see little purpose in trying to fault them He was asked to talk about how much communication there was with the Board of Trustees in the negotiations with state officials and the NCAA He wouldn t say much except that I hear frequently from my trustees and that s a good thing but negotiation of details is first and foremost with the attorneys Then when you have a sense of what agreement is possible that s the best time to bring it to the board Then they can make the best possible decision And as you can see the vote was unanimous He added that the negotiations were going on right up to that moment presumably meaning right up until the start of the trustees meeting this afternoon Asked again about the Paterno statue he said Same answer I m a boring guy There ll be a good time and place In November President Barron said he was committed to personally reviewing the Freeh Report At today s news conference he said today s events don t change that plan I am very appreciative that we ve hit a tremendous milestone today and that s what we re going to focus on he said but I don t think my responsibilities change Asked if he had a message for students who might be inclined to celebrate today s news he referred to the spontaneous but peaceful rally that took place when Penn State s bowl eligibility was restored last fall Our students acted with a high level of enthusiasm but with a great deal of respect Barron said and although I think I told you I was always worried about such an activity I was very pleased by their behavior And I m hoping from every inch of my body that I can be equally proud today This is something to be very happy about this is not something that should promote destructive behavior in any way shape or form Tina Hay editor Share this Email Print Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google LinkedIn Tumblr Like this Like Loading Related Entry filed under Board of Trustees Tags Eric Barron Joe Paterno NCAA NCAA Sanctions Repealed Paterno s Wins Restored Ryan McGarry Cracks the Code for CBS 4 Comments Add your own 1 Greg Szymik January 17 2015 at 10 14 am The Penn Stater blog continues to provide the most in depth information about what the university s administration is saying doing There was nothing mentioned elsewhere in the media not even in the university s Penn State News about President Barron s news conference I would have thought that several of his comments such as his intent to review the Freeh report were newsworthy But then except for your blog I would have been wrong Thanks 2 Myke Triebold January 17 2015 at 2 01 pm Reblogged this on Penn State News and Information and commented Let s rejoice in what we

  • Posnanski and Paterno: A Lesson about Reporting | The Penn Stater Magazine
    journalist He was also sitting 10 feet in front of me No matter how exhausted the subject felt to me I needed to listen I m glad I did too Posnanski didn t talk in circles about the Sandusky scandal He remained calm poised and open to all questions And like a true journalist he didn t insert too much of his own opinion Whether or not it was intentional Posnanski talked a lot about truth and trust and that s what resonated with me most as a student journalist Paterno was known for being unreceptive to journalists so Posnanski was convinced he wouldn t be allowed to follow around the celebrity coach for months let alone write a book about him But after years of Posnanski s persistence Paterno gave him the OK Paterno s people finally responded with Well if you want to do the book he won t stop you Posnanski told us Staying true to form Paterno didn t back down easily to a journalist a type of skepticism a lot of journalists encounter Posnanski was open with Paterno about the book s intentions He took his time He had hours long conversations with Paterno in the family s kitchen and even in Paterno s hospital room He said he was fairly certain Paterno didn t even trust him until Sue did But once Paterno opened up the two formed a bond so close that Paterno started confiding in Posnanski When Posnanski explained the context of Paterno s famous I wish I would have done more I got chills That statement was a result of Posnanski s honesty Posnanski not intimidated by his celebrity source and instead focused on telling the truth told Paterno he should have done more in the Sandusky scandal Not only did Paterno admit this to a journalist but he also posed the question in the first place That s trust and that s what source relations are all about Close to the time of his death Paterno even gave Posnanski a duffel bag filled with photos notes legal documents and more Could Paterno have removed legal documents pertinent to the scandal Sure Posnanski told us But he trusted Paterno He said that when Paterno would look him in the eye and tell him how he didn t know about 1998 allegations against Sandusky he didn t see an ounce of deceit Posnanski is no detective but he said didn t have reason to think otherwise Posnanski left me with restored hope in source relations He might not have provided the audience with new answers or solutions But I m hoping other listeners besides me will give journalists like Posnanski some credit for his commitment to honesty and seeking the truth By the way going back to what the audience asked during the discussion Posnanski thinks Paterno would have had a few choice words for the NCAA and would have been disappointed in the university for not fighting back Erika Spicer intern

    of the John Curley Center for Sports Journalism which sponsored the talk gave audience members the opportunity to ask Posnanski questions Not that I could blame them after all Posnanski not only spent more Share this Email Print Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google LinkedIn Tumblr Like this Like Loading September 17 2012 at 1 11 pm 1 comment Honoring Lt Michael Murphy Medal of Honor Winner For the members of the 2011 Senior Class Gift Committee the process was just like every other year planning and fundraising for months until they sat down to lunch with the family of the late Lt Michael P Murphy They spent the afternoon reminiscing about Murphy s time at Penn State how he always got good grades loved going to the Rathskeller and was once chased by a squirrel on the Henderson Mall They also talked about how Murphy 98 was humble how even as a student he always put others ahead of himself He did the same thing as a Navy SEAL He was killed in Afghanistan during a reconnaissance mission in 2005 but before he died he exposed himself to the enemy to give his men time to get to safety Read more about his heroic efforts here He was awarded the Medal of Honor the highest military decoration Murphy s family opened up to the committee about their son after learning the forthcoming class gift a Veterans Plaza would be constructed near Old Main to honor Penn State veterans and their son Penn State s only Medal of Honor recipient To many veterans and community members a military memorial on Penn State s campus was long overdue Having the opportunity to sit down with his family and talk about Michael and his time at Penn State and what the gift would mean to his family it was very touching says Geoff Halberstadt 11 gift development chair for the Senior Class Gift Committee It was really rewarding to see how meaningful this gift was for not only their family but also other Penn State families The whole process was just remarkable The committee raised more than 250 000 from students alumni and people in the State College community the highest amount in class gift history Seeing how many students felt a connection to this gift and were willing to give so much to make it one of the better gifts that made it one of the most successful gifts in the history of the program says Ben Witt 11 overall chairman for the committee Murphy left is Penn State s only recipient of the Medal of Honor The committee got creative with fundraising for the plaza when they hosted the Warrior Games in 2011 with the Penn State Veterans Organization The event was based on The Murph which was the workout routine Murphy practiced a one mile run 100 pull ups 200 push ups and 300 squats topped off with another one mile run Half Murph and Mini Murph versions of the workout

  • First Impressions of ‘Paterno’ | The Penn Stater Magazine
    Sue and the kids are on their own It does however take a long time to get to the new stuff and those parts of the book aren t as richly reported There s a chapter on Paterno s relationship with Jerry Sandusky that clearly spells out the differences between the two men and the fact that they weren t friends I think this will come as less of a revelation to anyone who s followed the program closely but that chapter is a good read Scott Paterno son and lawyer and Guido D Elia friend and marketing genius wrestle with the presentment and its aftermath anyone who cares about Joe Paterno will be sad as they read those scenes Posnanski eventually recounts a conversation between himself and Paterno in which the coach asks for the writer s take Posnanski doesn t let him off the hook he tells Paterno he should have done more because you are Joe Paterno Right or wrong people expect more from you Elsewhere he writes It is certain that no one Paterno included was aware enough courageous enough or decent enough to stop a man who would be found guilty of forty five counts of child molestation Most reviews however have found Posnanski s portrayal as Dwight Garner of the New York Times called it breezy and largely sympathetic Rich Hofmann of the Philadelphia Daily News calls it neither a prosecutor s brief nor a full throated defense Beat writer Mark Wogenrich 90 of The Morning Call in Allentown provides a great framework for understanding the book using an anecdote about Paterno s recruitment of John Cappelletti Guy Cipriano the new beat writer for the Centre Daily Times writes that Posnanski whiffs on this book because he didn t make the most of his exclusive access to Paterno and that s a take well worth reading too There aren t many new insights here but Posnanski does raise some fascinating ideas At the end of a chapter in which he recounts both Joe s courtship of Sue and then Oakland Raiders coach Al Davis courtship of Joe he wanted Paterno to be the offensive coordinator Posnanski writes She had fallen in love with State College the first day she arrived on campus as a student and though Joe did not know it yet the rest of his life would be guided by her vision Joe was cocky ambitious principled smart consumed by football and determined to win those qualities and others would make him a great football coach But he would become a legend by seeing the world through Sue s eyes Now that s something I d like to know more about You can learn a lot about someone by understanding their relationships particularly the choice of a life partner and breaking down the Paterno marriage would have been insightful But that thread is never picked up And it s not the only one In a few places Posnanski zeroed in on the
