Breaking news for Penn State football fans -- Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" has been banned from the music playlist at Beaver Stadium.

Because the "touching you touching me" lyrics obviously are inappropriate in light of the Jerry Sandusky abuse scandal.

[thanks, slade!]

Actor Albert Brooks is no stranger to Twitter-related controversy, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that he'd have something to say after Thursday's release of the Freeh report.

The damning report implicates Penn State's "Big Four" in failing to report on Jerry Sandusky's conduct, going as far as to say they "never demonstrated... any concern for the safety and well-being of Sandusky's victims."

While Brooks didn't actually come up with the aptly worded Joe Paterno burn (a response to calls for Paterno's statue at Penn State to come down), it still carries significant weight in that takes a potshot at the man whose once-golden reputation has been obliterated in recent months.
