STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Harry Kane Hotspur Jersey . -- More than 200 Penn State football lettermen petitioned the university on Tuesday for the return of an iconic bronze Joe Paterno statue that was removed in the summer of 2012 in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case.The former players and coaches, who span every decade since the 1950s, also made two other demands: return the wall that rested behind the statue and celebrated Penn State accomplishments, and issue a formal apology to Paternos widow.Joe Paterno has been cast in a negative light, the letter writer, former tight end/punter Brian Masella, told ESPN, and were trying to correct that narrative. The university has ignored us over and over again.The university released a statement in response to the letter, saying, We appreciate the passion of our former Penn State lettermen for Coach Joe Paterno and the football program, and thank them for their input and many contributions/achievements. We recognize that this is emotional for many in the Penn State community, many of whom differ, yet feel strongly about this issue.The Universitys leadership has clearly indicated that there will be a time and place to acknowledge Coach Joe Paternos many contributions. Any plans by the president to reach out to the Paterno family will be done privately.The statue has been a lightning rod of controversy since its removal four years ago. Fans continue to leave flowers and knickknacks at the former site of the statue, and many see the statue as a symbol of Paternos legacy.Masella said the lettermen are not looking to compromise and would not be satisfied if the statue appeared elsewhere on campus, such as the All-Sports Museum inside the football stadium. The statue is currently out of sight in what the university has previously referred to as a secure location.Our feeling is it should go back where it was located on Porter Road, Masella said.Former Penn State players who added their names to the letter include Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny and 1973 Heisman winner John Cappelletti. Ben Davies Jersey .

WASHINGTON -- While James Harden and the Houston Rockets aim for better results on their five-game road trip, the Washington Wizards hope the return of John Wall leads to a needed win.The Rockets (3-3) and Wizards (1-3) meet for the first of two games this season on Monday night after both sides lost on the road Saturday.Harden nearly pulled off a triple-double, but his 30 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds in Atlanta were in vain as the Hawks controlled the Rockets for a 112-97 win.Houston committed 25 turnovers, including six by Harden, and Atlanta shot 52.9 percent from the field.The Atlanta frontcourt of Dwight Howard, Paul Millsap and Kent Bazemore combined for 63 points on 25-of-42 shooting from the field as the Rockets fell to 1-2 on their road swing.At some point, weve got to guard a guy, Houston coach Mike DAntoni said. We didnt really get down and guard. We didnt battle hard enough.Harden ranks fourth in the NBA in scoring (31.5) and leads all players with 12.3 assists.Walls 10.0 assists slots Washingtons point guard third overall. Hell have a chance to improve that stat after sitting out Saturdays 88-86 loss at Orlando.The Wizards plan, according to coach Scott Brooks, involves resting the three-time All-Star in back-to-back game scenarios for the time being after Wall had two knee procedures during the offseason.The Wizards led 70-61 entering the fourth quarter on Saturday but soon fell back as the Magic scored 16 straight points. Late-game fades and spotty bench production have provided with an unwanted narrative early in the season.We have to finnd a way to be able to get stops and to be able to score the ball, Wizards guard Bradley Beal said. Ryan Mason Hotspur Jersey. We have to do one or the other. The biggest thing we can control is our defense and that is all about effort and just wanting to play.I think Coach is pretty fed up with the way we are playing and I think he is going to start playing guys who want to play and guys who want to show up.Markieff Morris led the Wizards with 18 points, but his 3-point attempt at the buzzer missed after Washington took possession with 0.7 of a second remaining.We had a good look, Brooks said of Morris open shot off the inbounds pass. We cannot complain about having a chance to win the game on the road on a back-to-back. Our guys battled hard. They have nothing to be ashamed of.Unfortunately, we didnt get the win. We played well enough to win this game, though.The meeting is the first for former Wizards player Nene against his former team after playing parts of the previous five seasons in Washington. The Brazilian big man was a main cog for a team that reached the Eastern Conference semifinals in back-to-back seasons but missed the postseason with a 41-41 record in the previous season.Nene, who never played more than 67 games in a season with the Wizards, signed a one-year deal with Houston after Washington inked center Ian Mahinmi to a four-year, $64 million contract. The irony is Mahinmi has yet to play this season after suffering a knee injury. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
