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.

No, they're supporting Penn State AND the victims. Jackasses.


Whats so wrong with just wearing a ribbon to support ALL victims of sexual abuse?


Why do they have to support a corrupt institution who covers for the RAPE of children?

Can we PLEASE not refer to this as a "sex scandal"??!! Herman Cain is a "sex scandal". Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinski were a "sex scandal". These people are adult predators/conspirators criminally sucking the innocence out of powerless, defenseless children, people who belong behind BARS. This is a CRIME, not a "scandal".

It's not a SEX SCANDAL. It's a CHILD MOLESTATION/RAPE SCANDAL.

Weren't students just rioting over the head coach being fired for not taking action when the rape of a child was reported to him? Why does Penn State need 'support' right now?.. it's an institution. They are supporting 'solidarity with Penn State' .. the institution where at least four adults knew a child had been raped and did nothing. Penn State doesn't need 'support'.. the victims do. Penn State should be the one's giving 'support' to victims of child sexual abuse and rape not others supporting Penn State. Frankly I think it's a bit insulting the way they said they are supporting 'Penn State.. "and others" affected by child abuse.. as if the 'and others'.. being the child who was raped, was an after thought.

The blue ribbons are to support the victims, it's not about supporting the school. TMZ, since it's clear most of the commenters don't bother to read the article itself, make sure you get the headlines right, OK?

@ Bob, I don't see the word victim written anywhere do you? Why is it so clear this is all for the victims when the statement says "in solidarity with Penn State and others affected by child abuse." Penn State was not the victim, Penn State was not affected...Again Nebraska says they stand in 'solidarity' with Penn State ... oh 'and others'.. I guess those 'others' are the victims you are referring to?

Blue is the color to raise awareness about child abuse.
