Nebraska Alums

Screw the Rivalry,

We Support Penn State

No smack talk this year ... instead, the University of Nebraska Alumni Association tells TMZ it is organizing a pre-game campaign of support for those affected by the Penn State sex scandal.

A rep for the association tells TMZ, members plan to distribute hundreds of blue ribbons on Saturday before, during, and after the game in solidarity with Penn State and others affected by child abuse.

If students don't have access to a blue ribbon, Nebraska alums are asking all Huskers to wear any kind of blue whatsoever as a sign of support for their Penn State brethren.

So far, no word if Nebraska players also plan to wear some kind of blue.

Did you not read the story? It says they are organizing to support the victims, not the people who did the crimes. They are doing it as a statement that they don't condone what happened and want to raise awareness of child abuse.....don't boycott Nebraska, support them.....GO BIG RED!

WEARING BLUE TO THE GAME WAS ORGANIZED TO SUPORT THE ABUSE VICTIMS, NOT PENN STATE!!!!!!! Wearing white is to support the morally abhorrent ex-coach.

PLEASE stop calling it a sex scandal. Little kids can't be involved in sex scandals because they cannot have sex. At least call it a child sexual abuse scandal.

Apparantely, nTheZone does not know how to read anything but a headline! The Huskers support the VICTIMS. You have to be naive if you really think that the majority of Penn State fans, alum, boosters, and students support what happened to these kids. The blue is for the victims, white is for Joepa.

She's baaaack    

I believe this will be carried off with class. There is no rivalry when it involves the abuse and harming of children. Don't paint Penn State with such a broad brush. The old boy's network era is now over at that University, and I'm sure they will pay dearly for those cowards and cronies permitting the rape and abuse of children. In the meantime, there are thousands of good, hardworking faculty and students who comprise the school who don't deserve thi*****red because of a pedophile and those who protected him.
