Echoing their brand new President Rodney Erickson, hundreds of Penn State fans pumped themselves up in the stands today ... chanting, "WE ARE .. PENN STATE!"

As we previously reported, Erickson released a video statement yesterday, claiming the University "must move forward" despite the child abuse scandal.

Erickson signed off with the school's infamous motto ... reminding students, "We are Penn State."

they're gonna be chanting "We Are POOR State" once those lawsuits roll in.

This scandal is just as bad as the Catholic Church abuse scandal.

Oh, and they shoudl definitely be admonished by the Dept. of Ed to the extent that they lose federal money for a # of years!

I suppose that's easier to chant than " We are child molestor pedo protectors."

This is not a smart thing to chant considering that "Penn State" is accused of covering up child rape on their campus and students rioted over Father Joe getting fired for covering up the rapes.


...and the guy who actually witnessed it is still on the payroll.

Nothing more idiotic than college football fans. They all need to grow up. As for the red-haired guy who allow the rape to continue, ask yourself if you were so deeply imbibed in a football organization where Pa is God and his senior staffers are apostles, would you do anything to upset that apple cart -- especially when you want be one of the apostles and make gobs of money in a nitwit job?

I would have stopped the rape, but M chose not to and he will live with that the rest of his life. At least Penn State finally did the right thing and canned the president and JoPa.

They can chant whatever the hell they want but nothing changes the ugly situation or the fact they are all associated with the university.

We Are....Penn State! is a chant that is chanted at EVERY game whether they are home or away. It is something chanted on the streets and everywhere else. I just love how obviously none of you know anything about this school other than what you have seen in the media lately making comments and sharing your opinions. This is not a chant that they came up with just for this game.

After reading the grand jury report, I cannot believe anyone would support these people who covered up for this disgusting monster. The only thing that is important to those who run this university is the money that the football program brings in every year. I cannot even begin to understand how anyone could have just let man continue to molest and rape children. All of you that support him look like fools!

Its tasteless, insensitive and classless for them to continue with the so called big game after everthing thats happened at this School. it like everyone holding a big party at a murder scene, what next?. This School football program should be shut down. Penn State will never survive this, too many people knew for a very long time, and they go on as if nothing happened, do they really care???

WE ARE...supporting a college and administration that allowed a pedophile to wreak havoc on the lives of countless little boys. All of the students and alumni who aren't sickened by this and are more excited about the football season are just as bad as Joe Paterno and the Ginger.

and to all you penn state students who keep admonishing every one's comments because every thing you do are traditions performed at every game - we are saying in light of this horrible scandal, you should stop thinking about yourselves and break your traditions and honor the poor victims of your horrendous football department and staffers - it's not about you and your personal college experience any more!

You are all quick to point fingers what about all those pro football players that rape women. Those get covered up. Also I say get rid of the catholic faith since priest molest children and they cover it up as well.
