Participate in our Power Lunch Chats Monday-Friday at 11 a.m. at NewsOK.com/sports. Topics covered today: Penn State, Wes Lunt, Team USA basketball, Sooner football, trades around the NBA and more.

On whether or not Penn State will take down the statue of Joe Paterno:

Penn State has two options.

1. Take down the statue in a complete admission that the university lost its mind over a man.

2. Leave it up as a shameful symbol of the past. I assume Penn State will go for option 1.

Heck, they could auction it off to some of the crazies. Help pay for the lawsuits.

On whether or not Wes Lunt will make it through the whole season as OSU's starting QB:

Health-wise? Probably. OSU's offense is set up so that the QB gets rid of the ball pretty quickly. Tech QBs almost always stayed healthy under Leach. Same at OSU. If you're talking about performance, I don't know. I mean, I've seen the kid play once in his life. Spring game. I like what I saw.
