    He has, just still stumbling over his words and trying to convince everybody that Penn State is the holy grail of CFB.

    I haven't seen this mentioned and not that it is any big thing, but it is some information that is tied by family to the Browns.

    Jerry Sandusky is the Father of Jon Sandusky, who is the Head of Player Development for the Browns.

    Just a FYI if it hasn't been posted. I first heard about it on ABAO today.
    ,


    I don't see how Paterno keeps his job.

    While I'm not willing to burn McQueary or Paterno at the stake just yet, as we really don't know what he saw or what he said to Paterno, the actions of the administration is beyond shocking to me.

    Just so grossly mismanaged and cold.

    Rumor is that Paterno is out. We'll know it's true if opening statement at Penn State's presser is read by Chris Hansen.

    There is much more to this story than meets the eye. These guys from Mike Mcqueary to Paterno to the AD are all covering something up. How does the grand jury report not plug the holes that are riddled throughout the story? I feel like they are going easy on Paterno and gang.

    A review...

    Completely misleading title, November 5, 2011
    This review is from: Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story (Paperback)



    100% false advertising by Mr. Sandusky. Not a single page in this book "touches" on how to appropriately gain the trust of young, at-risk boys, and then use that trust to perpetrate horrifying sexual assaults on the very children who turned to you for guidance and support. Almost as disappointing as the first time I watched "Touched by an Angel." Don't even get me started on that bullcrap. I still can't watch anything with Della Reese in it.
    Edit: Jesus, there are on a ton of them like this now.

    That makes me hate the guy even more. He must have thought he was so much smarter than everyone else, and that there was no way he was getting caught. At this point, I want everyone who played a part in this gone from college football forever. Hopefully the NCAA rips that program to the ground.

    I'm not ever going to condone what Tressel did, but I do agree it doesn't compare to what Paterno and co. have done.

    You can stop being a jerk at anytime now.

    Here's a very good point by point as to the real issues:

    In Penn State’s scandal, where was the leadership?

    By Eugene Robinson, Published: November 7

    Legendary Penn State football coach Joe Paterno said, “I did what I was supposed to.” In fact, nobody at Penn State did what basic human decency requires — and as a result, according to prosecutors, an alleged sexual predator who could have been stopped years ago was allowed to continue molesting young boys.

    The arrest Saturday of Jerry Sandusky, the school’s former defensive coordinator, on felony child sex abuse charges, involving at least eight victims, has sent university officials scrambling to justify a pattern of self-serving inattention and inaction.

    University Vice President Gary Schultz and Athletic Director Tim Curley also face charges — for failing to report what they knew about Sandusky and for allegedly perjuring themselves before a grand jury. Both proclaim their innocence. After an emergency meeting of the university Board of Trustees, it was announced Sunday that the two officials would be stepping away from their jobs.

    Penn State President Graham Spanier has said that Schultz and Curley have his “unconditional support.” If he believes the way they acted was right, or even remotely acceptable, then he needs to go, too — as does Paterno, who can only destroy his legacy by hanging on and trying to excuse the inexcusable.

    Assuming that even half of what Pennsylvania Attorney General Linda Kelly alleges is true, Sandusky is a patient and calculating pedophile who used his insider status with the glamorous Penn State football program to lure boys as young as 10. Sandusky allegedly met his victims through the Second Mile, a charity he founded that provides programs for troubled — and vulnerable — youth.

    The investigation that led to the charges was launched in 2009 after the mother of a boy — a Second Mile participant — reported allegations of sexual assault to officials at a high school where Sandusky, now 67, volunteered. But Penn State officials knew at least 11 years earlier that there were disturbing questions about physical contact between Sandusky and young boys.

    In 1998, Sandusky was famous in the college football world as the defensive wizard who gave Penn State the nickname “Linebacker U,” and he was often mentioned as Paterno’s likely successor.

    That year, the university police department conducted what a grand jury report calls a “lengthy investigation” of allegations that Sandusky had hugged, rubbed against and inappropriately touched two 11-year-old boys while they were naked with him in the showers of a Penn State locker room.

    Detectives listened in as the mother of one of the boys called Sandusky to confront him. According to the grand jury report, Sandusky told her: “I understand. I was wrong. I wish I could get forgiveness. I know I won’t get it from you. I wish I were dead.”

    The local district attorney declined to prosecute, and the investigation was closed. Paterno was Sandusky’s immediate boss, and Curley was Paterno’s. Perhaps all who were involved did, in the narrowest sense, what they were “supposed to.” But imagine how much better it would have been if someone had done the right thing and taken that 1998 incident seriously — better for the victims, but also better for the university’s reputation and ultimately better for Sandusky himself.

    It gets much worse: In 2002, after Sandusky had retired — although he still had an office and enjoyed the run of the Penn State athletic facilities — a football team “graduate assistant” saw Sandusky raping a young boy in the showers, according to the grand jury report.

    The assistant — widely identified in news reports as Mike McQueary, a former Penn State quarterback who is now the team’s wide receivers coach and top recruiter — told Paterno what he had seen. Paterno told Curley. The assistant was eventually summoned to a meeting with Curley and Schultz at which he says he described the rape in graphic detail.

    The two officials claim they were only told about behavior that was “not that serious.” They took it seriously enough, however, to decree that Sandusky could no longer bring Second Mile children into the football building.

    But they “never attempted to learn the identity of the child in the shower,” according to the grand jury. “No one from the university did so.”

    Unbelievable.

    According to the grand jury, the assistant, Paterno, Curley, Schultz and Spanier all knew about the incident. Each covered his own behind. None lifted a finger to find out who the alleged victim was or what had become of him.

    Tell us again: How did you do everything you were supposed to do?
