Last night, the members of the Penn State football team watched the man who more than likely played a major role in bringing them to Happy Valley get unceremoniously canned. While thousands of other students took to the streets to tip over news vans and get pepper-sprayed, the current Nittany Lions elected to share their thoughts in a different venue—Twitter. Here's what they had to say.
Safety Adrian Amos:
Smh this is crazy...Joe Pa made Penn st. The successful college it is today
Tackle Quinn Barham:
Can't even let him finish the season??! Come on now
Quarterback Rob Bolden:
This week has been like a movie..messed up

Defensive Back Tim Buckley:

Defensive Tackle Devon Still:

Quarterback Garrett Venuto:
I'm honestly sick to my stomach
Wide Receiver Christian Kuntz :
Sick. Just sick.
And Kuntz again, expressing similar surprise just a few hours before JoePa was ousted:
No modern family on tonight?
