Outrage Over T-Shirt With Sandusky Reference

August 31, 2012

A T-shirt produced for Ohio State University football fans -- with a reference to arch-rival the University of Michigan and the Jerry Sandusky scandal at Pennsylvania State University -- is causing much outrage, USA Today reported. The shirt says: "I'd rather shower at Penn State than cheer for the Wolverines." Similar T-shirts have appeared with other university rivalries referenced. Karen Days, president of the Center for Family Safety and Healing,in Columbus, Ohio said: "I was so encouraged by the support of victims and outcry. We get so far ahead, and then something like this happens. It's almost one of those times when you think, 'When are we really ever going to change the culture?'"
