    I haven't seen this in the forums anywhere so I'll post.. Honestly, I can't believe these kids. If you listen to the interview with one of the students they think it's funny and absolutely nothing wrong with it. Some people just have to much empty space between their ears.

    I am from the Penn State area. Have been a fan of the football team for years as well. To see this is so repulsive and nauseating I can hardly believe that there are people who would do this.

    Personally, if I was the dean at that school I would kick them out of school for good.

    I hate to say it, but I'm not surprised when people do stuff like this.

    I'm not from the area but I completely back you. If I'm dean those students would AT LEAST be suspended a year from the date.

    And you'd be sued and lose your job.

    That's pretty stupid. But I doubt there's much you can do to these students legally. What they did was tasteless but hardly criminal.

    I think you can be suspended if you do something to bring humiliation to the school. Not sure what it's called but I am sure there is a provision for people like this.

    Yup... Penn State can't legislate good taste, and those two did nothing illegal...

    Disgusting, yes; illegal, no... it's in the same vein as Bill Maher attending a party as Steve Irwin, complete with a "sting ray" barb sticking out of his chest...

    Shake your head in disgust at this story, but it's not worth wasting the energy getting outraged over it... it ain't like they're the first college kids to do something profoundly stupid...

    These students were looking for shock value and found it.

    One of the students killed at VT was from the State College area, a Penn State grad doing his graduate work at VT so the outpouring of support from the Penn State community was greater than most other institutions. There was a tribute at Penn State's spring football game with the students forming VT's logo in the crowd...
