19. It's alarmingly cultish

I was pleased when the NCAA vacated all of Paterno's victories, and I didn't (and still don't) care about how "unfair" it was to the players during those years.

As a compromise, rather than caving and reinstating Paterno's record, IMO they should have restored the victories to the team but specifically and explicitly excluded Paterno.

When his bronze statue was taken down, the alumni absolutely lost their collective shit about it. I had bitter arguments on FB with friends who couldn't bear to see their god dishonored so starkly, and there were the usual cries of "political correctness run amok."

They should have melted it down and re-cast it as a plaque memorializing Paterno's utter (deliberate, perhaps?) failure to stop a predatory child rapist.
