After a "miserable, awful, hideous" sex-abuse scandal at Penn State College came to light this week, the future of the football program is unclear. Only A Game analyst Charlie Pierce answers the question: should Penn State drop football as the college struggles to rebuild trust? Charlie also explains his most enduring image of the one-time undisputed world heavyweight boxing champion Joe Frazier, makes his best prediction for the NASCAR Cup Chase, and tells of the woman who won a large chunk of change this week in the most unlikely of fantasy sports leagues.

This segment aired on November 12, 2011.
