I started this thread and no one responded. :
This is all they talk about on the stations I listen to. Admittedly, I listen to a lot of sports talk, but it's a top story on regular news too. Penn State Football is what I'm referred to in this thread, more so than JoePa, but he's part of the "star chamber" that rules PSU as far as I've always observed. This was the first time I've seen where he wasn't able to dictate the rules. Kinda like Coach K with Duke Basketball.
Only 1 week ago he was poised to make a bid at the first Big Ten Championship to crown his legendary career. I've always liked JoePa, but I haven't an ounce of pity for him now. I suspect he'd have never uttered a word about what he knew if it hadn't come to this. That boy who had been seen with coach Sandusky could have been spared. I imagine him terrified, unafraid to speak up, praying that someone would see something and save him from his life of torment.
The whole system failed from the intern on up to the top. I can see this as being worse than what they call "the death penalty" in college football. That school will be quagmired in legal strife for years and years.
