    all things considered, id be weary of new stories coming out.. money is starting to be delegated and public opinion and awareness create a pretty open and shut case if youre not looking at it carefully.

    totally agree, we all know sandusky is at best a horrible human being. he is in jail the rest of his life and thats pretty much how this story for him is going to end. if this story is true why didnt this witness come forward any time in the last year, or you know any time between when it happened and after it was first being reported?

    One of the reports I read said prosecutors knew they had a pretty open and shut case on him, but in case the jury completely botched it, they wanted some cases they could re-try him for. New evidence, kids from different states, etc.

    Word out there is more information will continue to come out. A lot of evidence is being kept for the administrator trials (Curley, Schultz) that the Freeh report could not release. A guy over on Buckeyeplanet (OSU website) said to put your thumb and index finger an inch apart, and picture a stack of printed out emails detailing the cover-up.

    I don't think we have seen/heard everything yet. A lot of things are still being investigated by federal authorities and being kept under wraps for upcoming trials.

    This is realllllly beginning to complete an extremely sickening and damning puzzle of what appears to be trafficking of children. Mix-in the "camps" that were around "grooming" victims and the fact that Sandusky's crimes were well-known and accepted in the region where Penn State was sacred.... Did I just read that Paterno showered with a couple of kids?

    This is awful.

    Schiano's tenure might be over before it even started.

    Terrible look for Bradley and Schiano today. Look like guys who buried their heads in sand to protect their jobs.

    What is it about child sexual abuse that causes people to abandon all decency and just decide it didn't happen?

    I can't imagine seeing someone abusing a child and not murdering them.

    In this case, I truly believe you had a culture of people that were protecting their careers and a football program. Sandusky was powerful in the college football world, and those that allegedly saw him (Tom Bradley, Greg Schiano, Mike McQuerey) were all in a subordinate role to Sandusky.

    To call out Sandusky for molestation would not only put you in the cross-hairs at PSU, and challenging an icon at the school, but it'd also end up being potentially career ending when you consider where guys like Bradley and Schiano were at, at that point in their careers.

    So while it was extremely shocking, and Schiano was alleged to have been horrified and "white a sa ghost", once they reported it one level above them they felt they did their "due-diligence" and checked out essentially.

    Which is what makes this the most sickening...he continued to exploit his access to the program for 25+ more years, and creating a charity with the sole-intention of preying upon under-privileged youth. Kids, he continued to exploit and molest well past his retirement. Kids from his charity program that were seen with Sandusky in PSU luxury boxes, at Penn State football practices, etc.

    All while, for years, there were whispers about his activity with kids. It's just shitty....
