    Maybe what I said was wrong in hindsight, but I think crimes and offenses going unreported to the police by head coaches is more apparant than people think. Players would never want to play for a guy that reports them to the police if they have any sort of criminal capability in them, and the coaches may not want to coach for a guy that reports their issues to the police. (yes it sounds cruel, but it's obvious Sandusky isn't a very sane person)

    The only thing close to this seriousness (at least in the major public) the last few years was the dogfighting ring by Michael Vick, and it also seemed in that situation that at least players and maybe coaches had to of ignored that situation until the authorities show up and then all of a sudden everyone comes out.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    You might be right. But rape and murder are mentioned together very often because they are such heinous crimes. A coach being complicit in a tattoo-for-merch scandal is probably illustrative of common occurrence in today's NCAA but unreported rape? I hope it hasn't come to that.
    Already stoked for 2013-2014.

    Bball they did make him "retire" back in 1999, but they allowed him to stay around the university for some un-explained reason.
    I bet you he knows serious dirt about these people. I can't think of a logical explanation otherwise.

    And while JoePa deserves a lot of blame for this I am bothered by the media pretty much ignoring Mike McQuery in all of this.

    At least Sandusky you know he's as good as dead when he goes to prison.

    Seriously concerned about how the students react to this. Hopefully they are smart.

    CNN's got video, it's about over. Just aggressive tones from all the reporters, a bunch of questions about basically questioning the integrity of the board that made the decision.

    Not JoePa's integrity, the board's.

    I can see why the BOT would be questioned.. probably because nobody buys they were clueless either.

    I definately don't.

    Mike McQueary, the former grad assistant turned WRs coach that saw Sandusky in the showers with a boy, still has a job.

    If you're going to fire Paterno for what amounts to "didn't do enough," then WTF?

    Yes, McQueary needs to go as well

    Why are they giving the job to someone who has been there for 33 years? CLEAN HOUSE. Fire them all, have no coach for the last 4 games if you have to.

    These kids at PSU disgust me. When do you think they'll start burning Sandusky in effigy?

    BTW, Sandusky should be thrown in general population once he hits the big house.

    BTW: CBS's Gregg Doyel is on the ground. This is going to get ugly:

    How many lives will Jerry Sandusky have ruined by the end of tonight? Hopefully, his terror does not claim any students or police. All we can do is hope at this point, but this crowd has all the makings of a riot waiting to happen. Just one thing needs to happen to set them off.

    these students are idiots. Joepa is just as guilty as that Sandusky how the **** dont you report it that is just inhumane IMO.


    glad there is one intelligent student that ESPN interview. He agreed with the firing and Joepa was morally wrong and they almost are gonna beat him up just for saying that what a damn shame.

    It sounds like the crowd is right on the tipping point of this turning into a full blown riot now. Reports of rocks being thrown, pepper spray, etc.

    All the media reports make the students at Penn State sound like the dumbest people on earth, some guy on ESPN just goes "We're having a hard time finding people who can form cogent sentences."

    One thing is worth saying (bearing in mind that I am 100% in favor of the removal of Paterno): He is far from the only one to have failed the victims of these crimes.

    People are making the mistake of thinking that Paterno is the only one getting sacked. Trust me when I say, that entire athletic department is getting overhauled. Don't make JoePa any kind of sympathetic figure.

    Just something for all the students to think about, a lot of the victims are probably their age. They may have gone to school with them, maybe still do, they can easily know one.

    I'm sorry Trader Joe, but I think you are being completely unfair here with who you are calling disgusting. ONE MAN (allegedly, though all evidence supports that he did) committed these acts. TWO MEN knew about it and did nothing. Joe Paterno knew about it and reported it to those two men and they did nothing. Could JoePa have done more? Obviously. But he did what he should have done and it isn't his fault that the other two did jack ****. Still, you are painting Penn St with much to broad a brush. Of course the students will be angry JoePa is out- he lead them for 45 years, most of which they were in the national spotlight.

    I agree that Sandusky is a terrible person and deserves the worst the law can legally dish to him. But calling essentially everyone related to Penn State "disgusting" is too far.
