The abuse scandal that is haunting Penn State Football like the most harrowing of poltergeists is threatening to bring down legendary coach Joe Paterno.  Will this mean the end of the football program at Penn State?

That's the shocking suggestion from Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin.   Rubin suggests

to excise that corruption from the body of the university and reestablish the purpose and virtue of the institution. End the football program. Let the recruits go elsewhere. Level the stadium or better yet, let it decay and crumble and be an eyesore, a fitting metaphor for the program that was suffused with moral rot.
