UK A Role Model For Penn State

Reading the New York Times is an integral part of my daily routine and, I must concede considering my political leanings, often a duty rather than a joy. Every so often I'm pleasantly surprised by The Gray Lady's content today was one of those times. Harvey Araton's piece entitled "What Kentucky Can Teach Penn State" immediately caught my eye and after reading caused me to nod my head in affirmation. It is of course the story of UK's rise from shame, the Unforgettables and the leadership of Rick Pitino. See if it meets with your approval.

Those seniors — known in Kentucky as the Unforgettables — helped peeled away for a short time the layers of ostentation that have bloated big-time college sports. At Penn State, there is no choice but to get smaller and think smaller. Given the somewhat grotesque feeding frenzy the N.C.A.A. has sanctioned, players have every right to leave to play for a national title or simply on a team not staggered by scandal.
