Penn State football's administrative offices might be about to update their automated mailing list.
Jerry Sandusky, former Penn State coach currently serving 30-60 years in state prison for 45 counts of child sex abuse, has been invited to renew his season tickets for the 2015 season. A letter inviting him to do so was sent to the address still inhabited by his wife from PSU football.
"'Dear Gerald A,' the letter reads. 'Congratulations on being identified as one of the elite college football fans in the nation. You have worked diligently to separate yourself by exhibiting unrivaled tenacity, character, and loyalty. Passionate and competitive, you are the leading standard of a first class fan base.'"
The letter also invites Gerald A. Sandusky to a basketball game for the purpose of "recruiting." It likely went out to all season ticketholders from 2014 (arriving November 28), and is more of an unfortunate oversight than anything else.
Sandusky went to prison in October 2012. It is unknown who was sitting in his seats this past season.
