    I saw it on ESPN and it was awesome. Fantastic speech. When he said the part about how it's on the investigation, not Paterno's handling of it I got goosebumps. Starts at about 6 minutes. Very well done.

    this guy said what so many wanted to say. i know he probably should've done more but ultimately the university failed these kids and joe.

    Phil Knight strikes me as the kind of guy I would want to know. I liked how he stuck behind Tiger when all his crap was going down too. Really seems like he would be a good friend.

    A funny thought though...

    Doesn't Nike have 14-year old kids in Indonesia making their shoes? Not exactly a "guy" you want in your corner...

    :wink:

    I'd still want him in my corner. Dude's not afraid to stick by his friends. Obviously his business choices like that are questionable but most friends do dumb crap you don't like.
