Sponsler's Great Post

Todd Sponsler has a great post on the varying wisdom of establishing a succession plan for PSU's impending, post-Paterno era. I liked it when I posted something right on point nearly two weeks ago.

Anyway. I'll say it again. A succession plan is NOT A GOOD IDEA! It limits the university in a number of ways with no real benefits. It is time for the succession talk to end. Speculation is fine, but there is absolutely no good reason to name a successor. A replacement will not help recruiting. A line of succession will not help find the next new head coach. There is no benefit to naming a successor.
