It wasn't exactly the best week for the Penn State football program. On the heels of the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal, Penn State was hit with a $60 million fine to go to children's charities, a four-year postseason ban and a vacation of wins since 1998, among other penalties.
To support the players and coaches who have pledged to remain with the program, an informal rally has been scheduled for Tuesday at 7 a.m. at Holuba Hall, the team's indoor practice facility, to "support the football team." Players will be arriving at the facility for a preseason workout.
Per Onward State:
The idea came about on "The Goon Show" with with Keith Conlin and Dave Richards, and now local businesses - including Nittany Bank and Old State Clothing - are spearheading the initiative.
Free donuts and coffee will be handed out started at 6 a.m, and @NittanyStrong will be there to give out free t-shirts. Fans are encouraged to show up early, since the workout starts at 7 a.m.
