Penn State Commemorates Paterno’s 1st Game, Kaep Sits Again, Roster Cuts


Penn State announced the school will commemorate former Head Coach Joe Paterno’s 50th anniversary of his first game. Paterno (one of the winningest coaches in college football history) died in 2012 from lung cancer but will forever be tarnished with the Joe Sandusky child abuse charges. Paterno has been reported to have known about the horrific child abuse charges as far back as 1976, so it’s no surprise many people are upset about any celebration having to do with Paterno’s legacy.

Colin KaepernickSan Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick took a knee again in a pre-season game against the San Diego Chargers Thursday night. Many in the crowd booed him especially as the National Anthem coincided with the Chargers “Salute to the Military” which made his protest seem even more disrespectful. After the game, Kaepernick pledged to donate $1 million dollars to charities active in communities he feels need help.

The 32 NFL Teams need to cut 22 players each by Saturday afternoon to get 53 man rosters so expect many changes over the weekend.
