Penn State: The Fall of the Dynasty

Recommended Posts

What year or what event do you think would precipitate the fall of the current PSU dynasty?

Cael moving on/retiring?  A busted recruiting class?  NCAA scandal involving RTCs?  Or perhaps the organic rise of another super power (Ohio State, Iowa, Cornell, Rutgers, etc)

I think Cael's success is directly correlated with his excellent chin. It really can't get any better than it already is, so if something changes with his chin, then I think we see the decline.

If he grows a beard, it's over.

Double-chin, definitely over.

thats a theory but Cunningham could probably help him convert on his beard game.

Cael will be in David Taylor's corner when he wins Olympic Gold in 2020.  PSU administration, sensing the need to keep the latest and greatest on campus, will fire Cael and offer Taylor the head coaching postion.  Taylor replies, "loyalty be darned, I'm in!"  In 2024, Taylor gets offered a ton of cash elsewhere and bales on PSU.  Sensing the need to replace an Olympic Champion with another Olympic Champion, PSU hires Kevin Jackson.  And thus, The Dynasty ends.

Define “fall”

A very nice season in which the colors on the leaves turn vibrant shades of yellow, orange and red. Also known as "autumn".

Used in a sentence: The initial Pennsylvania archery season for antlered and antlerless deer in Wildlife Management Units 2B, 5C and 5D is during the fall time period of September 21, 2019 thru November 29, 2019.

After the socialists gain control of the government, competitive sports will be outlawed because they are inherently unfair to the less gifted participants, and everyone will be out of a job.

I heard that socialist DiBlasio wants to get rid of Gifted Academic programs in NYC. This is no joke. He literally wants to get rid of them because they are unfair to minorities, except for Asian minorities who I suppose he'd claim take full advantage of them to everyone else's expense. 

WTF? Let's only have dumb dumbs from now on. 

Why not get rid of math and science too? Go all the way, dummy DiBlasio!

Socialism = workers own the means of production.

You're talking about something entirely different - political correctness maybe?

You heard wrong.  He was handed a proposal from a task force.  He has not commented on it one way or another yet.

”Many people are saying..”. Where have we heard this before?  You are intellectually lazy.

Its his own Farking Task Force that handed him the proposal. Goodness gracious your comment is so damn misleading. DiBlasio himself created the task force and asked them to come up with proposals for him. It s his task force. Geez.

He is the mayor.  This is an educational task force.  They gave him their recommendations one day ago.  You are latching on to one aspect of it and saying that it is his idea and what he wants to do. He literally has said he wants to read and digest it first before commenting.  Who is being misleading?

Bernie Sanders calls himself a Democratic Socialist.

Anyone over the last 102 years see any Russian workers in control of anything productive? Me neither. 

Democratic socialism is different from socialism. Russia is effectively a dictatorship.

I still don't see the connection between government type and elimination of competitive sports. If anything, competitive sports are even more important in Russia.

Ok, I'll just predict that he'll agree with it.

I guess you prefer the pathetic and pathological proto-fascism of T-Rump, huh?  He's never met a petty tyrant he didn't fall in love with.

You obviously have no clue either what socialism is and how it differs from country to country (and no, I'm not a socialist).

Sure its a dictatorship, but it was promised to be a democratic socialist paradise.

Lenin promised "Peace, Land, Bread", but as you yourself correctly state, what they got instead was dictatorship. Well, they also got famine and death too, witness 1919 thru WW2.

This is the paradox of socialism. I find little distinction between one form of socialism and another. And the Nordic compact is not true socialism nor would it work anywhere else since there is no place where their entire cultural ideals could possibly be put in place to begin with. Socialists promise something they simply can't provide. For once they remove any and all ability to improve one's means, people become less productive. They quickly become poor. Then the State has to control them lest they lose the power they co opted thru false promises.
