Here are just a few things in Chad’s Pile that you will hear on Lubbock’s First News this morning. Give Chad your feedback on the steaming topics.

1. Friday!

Oh thank goodness it's Friday. What a crazy week it's been. Joe Paterno was fired from Penn State because of his role in the Jerry Sandusky/Child sex case. It's hard to believe, but it might be even worse and I will address that below. Rick Perry had a terrible debate performance on Wednesday, but I still don't think it will kill off his campaign. Now, if you lump that in with everything else he has done wrong in the campaign... maybe. Texas Tech plays OSU on Saturday and the thing most people are talking about is... will Adam James be booed. The answer is yes but it will mainly be from the student section. If Craig James was in town, then yes all of Jones Stadium would be booing.

Remember, I will be out at Stone Gate Golf Course TODAY from 11a-1p. It's called the Chad Hasty Lunch Rush. Come on out during Rush Limbaugh's show and have some lunch and network. Stone Gate is located at 110th and Indiana.

2. It might get worse (link)

The latest rumors out of Penn State aren't good. How could this scandal get even worse? Well...

In April, Pittsburgh radio host Mark Madden wrote a story revealing Penn State for much of the cover-up of Jerry Sandusky's alleged child rape that has been exposed in the past week. While it didn't raise many eyebrows back then, six months later it looks to be incredibly accurate.

First of all, how the hell could this story have come out in April and we are just now hearing about it? Hmm... I wonder if PSU did everything they could to keep it quiet.

"I can give you a rumor and I can give you something I think might happen," Madden told John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. "I hear there's a rumor that there will be a more shocking development from the Second Mile Foundation -- and hold on to your stomachs, boys, this is gross, I will use the only language I can -- that Jerry Sandusky and Second Mile were pimping out young boys to rich donors. That was being investigated by two prominent columnists even as I speak."


"The other thing I think that may eventually become uncovered, and I talked about this in my original article back in April, is that I think they'll find out that Jerry Sandusky was told that he had to retire in exchange for a cover-up," Madden said.

I hope this isn't true, but if it is... I have no words that pass our companie's filter.

3. No confederate plate (link)

Texas won't have license plates that honor the Confederate States of America.

All nine members of the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles board today voted against proposed license plates to honor the Confederate States of America.

Eh, okay. Can we move on to bigger stories? How about this.. Why hasn't any other media outlet in Lubbock reported on the Daily Toreador's news story about the Texas Tech Alumni Association and Raider Park?  KFYO talked about it. Ryan Hyatt has talked about it. Where are the TV "News" stations?

These and many more topics coming up on Friday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News with Chad Hasty. Tune in mornings 6-9am on News/Talk 790 KFYO, streaming online at, and now on your iPhone and Android device with the radioPup App.
