Designated Read: The longest sunset

The wisdom of youth: Joe Paterno and university president Graham Spanier have been ousted by the university's board of trustees, which held a press conference shortly afterward that you have to see to believe. (And if you're like me, you'd rather believe a few disgruntled students got in than believe reporters were behaving in that manner.) Defensive coordinator Tom Bradley has been made interim head coach; original whistleblower Mike McQueary remains on staff. Moderate chaos broke out on campus, where for a group of students felt the legacy of Joe Paterno trumped the heinous actions of Jerry Sandusky.

More reading material, if you can stomach it: The sister of a victim speaks on life at Penn State. Paterno's statement. Spanier's statement. Mike McCann analyzes the legal issues facing Paterno. Paterno addressing the players. The withdrawal of an award the NFF was to present to Penn State's AD. The investigation the Department of Education is launching into Penn State's handling of the Sandusky case. Bill Connelly: "By shielding and fearing football, we weaken it."

UCF is also canceled: Also in trouble: Central Florida, which picked a mighty opportune moment to cut loose a position coach and its AD. Recruiting violations abound; full documents here.

Temple 24, Miami (Ohio) 21: In actual football news, a Bernard Pierce-less Owls squad edged out the high-flying RedHawks, thanks to a 100-yard game from No. 2 tailback Matt Brown and the fleet feet of newly elevated starting quarterback Chris Coyer, and despite a dramatic performance from Miami QB Zac Dysert (28-of-37, 364 yards).

Quote of the day: "This is a tough time But the outrage we are feeling now is nothing compared to what the victims are going through. Keep them in our prayers." -- Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin

Roster blotter: Ray-Ray Armstrong is out for Miami-FSU, and still no decision on LSU's starting quarterback.

Thursday whimsy: Maryland-Notre Dame is going to be quite the sartorial eyesore. Excellent Ohio State blog Eleven Warriors raises thousands for the Stefanie Spielman Fund. And we have never loved Mark Richt more than we do right this minute.
