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."

At least the Penn State students finally acknowledged the victims.

I can't stomach it! These people/ fans only care about themselves and how this effects them and their football program. The only concern here should be for those boys! The chanting is so insensitive at this time. It's not about you!

"WE ARE...NOTconcerned if you do not understand our love and devotion."

I think that is exactly what is so offensive - the hubris you show in having to yell out your "love and devotion," after horrific crimes have been committed against children and a covered-up by many people at your alma mater.

It is simply disrespectful, selfish, insensitive, and abhorrent. Period.

Why can't the PED State navel-gazers just put their chants on the backburner and stop making themselves look more ignorant and depraved.

ALUMS: 2 WRONGS don't make a RIGHT. Didn't you learn THAT basic thought at your "DEVIANT UNIVERSITY"?
------------------------------------------------------------
NO amount of "Educational Prestige" can offset the PERVERTED Thought Process at the TOP of the Food Chain at PENN STATE (PATERNO, BOARD of TRUSTEES, ALUMS).
------------------------------------------------------------
ALUMS are in shock. Do something about it besides throwing donations that support the CRIMINALS at the top at PENN STATE for their CRIMINAL DEFENSE FUND.
------------------------------------------------------------
ALUMS and Student Body are being lied to for so long they have to go to DICTIONARY.COM to find the meaning of words like SEXUAL ABUSE, DEVIANTS, PERVERT, etc.
------------------------------------------------------------
The rest of the United States of America can see the PENN STATE Code Of Silence for all its sickening lack of morals, values and civil decency. ALUMS and Student Body: Why can't you see it too?

Infamous motto?! Infamous means notoriously evil, like the infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper. No. "We are Penn State" is just a college chant, a battle cry on the football field. Not infamous at all.

Sandusky may become known as an infamous pedophile...but the chant is just a chant.

Truth    

My friend is a SVP at a big company and he hires new grads every year. Just got off the phone w him and he said he will NEVER hire a Penn State grad.......ever!
Looks like all those jug head students should wipe their ass w their diplomas because that's all it's good for.

This is too disturbing on every level. We're watching what it looks like to be ppl so wrapped in the their own isolated world of football and hero worship, that they just can't or won't comprehend what utter ignorant morons they're showing they are. Do they honestly think the rest of the country/world cares one damn about football or their precious team, now that we ALL know the entire Penn State community willingly looked the other way knowing for a fact that more than one child had already been raped by one of their faculty members and that pervert was allowed access to the Penn State facilities to continue his crimes for almost 15 years. What losers all of these ppl are! Their chant should be: WE ARE...ASHAMED!
