Too bad we can't say the same thing about the Penn State athletics program. A scheduled press conference on campus was canceled earlier today, but then one cropped up at Paterno's home, as a crowd of supporters gathered in his yard. From the Twitter account of StateCollege.com's Ben Jones:

Jones also tweeted that students were chanting the school's motto:
Penn State students screaming the lyrics to the Alma Mater "May no act of ours bring shame."
We'd have more, but it was hard to hear. Damned double-pane insulation.
