This morning, Penn State football players made a statement. Unseen beforehand though, linebacker Mike Mauti met with NCAA president Mark Emmert:
NCAA President Mark Emmert: Who are you?
Crocodile Mauti: I am the NCAA's reckoning.
Why didn't you just, kill us?
Emmert: You're punishment must be more severe.
Mauti: Do you think you're in charge?
Emmert: If I kicked you in the ACL, would you die?
Mauti: It would be very painful.
Emmert: You're a big man.
Mauti: For you.
Mauti continues: No one cared who we were, until we put on these jerseys without names.
Zordich [voice crackles in over the radio]: Almost in position.
Mauti: I'm on your time, Captain.
Emmert: So was your plan to get punished?
Emmert: So what now? What's your grand master plan?
Mauti: Crashing the NCAA...with no survivors.
Mauti: LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
