Coach claims coverage inaccurate
This letter was written in regards to a story by George Berman on Oct. 31.
Your article on the Central Collegiates Cross Country Championship
certainly was an unintelligent slap at our cross country teams for the past
three years. Since you have absolutely no knowledge of the 1975 and a 1976
teams, how could you include them in your "fell flat on their face"
remarks? The assumption of "falling flat on its face" for this year's team is
If yourgoal is to "use" people, you have done an excellent job. If you are
after the truth which you claimed you were in September ("I owe it to my
readers to give them the truth"), then get the truth and not your own
distorted opinion. You were given all the information requested. Your
conclusions were unfounded and a great injustice to our athletes and frankly
requires an apology to the team.
How can you knock something or people in an activity in which you have
no background, or knowledge? In your play to whomever you think ap
preciates such poor reporting, you "used" our athletes and program for your
own end. That reflects poor judgement and still poor taste, but then, what
could we really expect? Harry R. Groves

The rat and his pack are back
Twas a cold November eve when the Rat brought his pack back,
Twas a cold November eve that thcy would have to pick up the slack;
But Nittany Lion fans could stand to wait,
For they knew the Panthers would soon meet their fate.
For weeks the tension had mounted,
"Revenge" the State fans had shouted!
The Rat and his Pack were cool,
For this year Paterno had an offense that could fool
The first half saw Fusina passes filling the Steel City sky,
While the Nittany Lion defense handled Pitt like a piece of pie;
The Panther fans grew worried, and "Where's Dorsett?" they exclaimed,
While Penn State fans chanted back "You better forget about past fame."
Pitt coach Jackie Sherrill looked on with disbelief,
For what he had heard of the Big Blue Machine was causing him much
While across the way everyone's favorite Pizanno sighed,
"Just like old times, no?"
What would soon add to their cold shivers,
Why, they landed in the Three Rivers;
As the Lion strained for his last push-up,
All Penn State critics began to shut up.
The job was done,
Revenge had been sweet and fun;
The Rat and his pack in the groove,
The Panthers were down the tubes!
