Penn State Coaches

Urge Players' Friends & Family:

"Wear White for JoePa"

11/10/2011 3:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1111_penn_state_exMultiple sources connected with the Penn State football team tell TMZ ... coaches held a meeting with players today and told them their friends and family should show support for ousted coach Joe Paterno by wearing white to the game on Saturday.

It's a bold move, considering there is a university-wide move for people in the stands to wear baby blue to support the alleged sexual assault victims of Jerry Sandusky

In addition to wearing white, we're told the coaches informed the team they may change the time and location of the pre-game meal because of security concerns.

And, we're told, the coaches assured the players there would be "enhanced security" for the game.

How about wearing white for the victims. It's as though the kids have been forgotten by these people. What a stain on this university. It is deserved.

The victims are the people to sympathize with, not the disgusting peewees who harmed them.

Are people really this sick? Support a man who clearly doesn't care about the innocence of children? I agree with others, wear black. Mourn the loss of innocence.
