They're not going to fire him. They'll force him to retire at season's end.

Then that's disgraceful on the part of the administration.

JoePa's coaching legacy for me is over. He's simply another coward who helped cover up the molestation of numerous children. If he has any sort of a backbone he'll resign. Now.

The president of the university has said the athletic director and vice president (the ones with the actual charges) have his unconditional support. This is where we are. So, yeah, I doubt they're making quick moves on Paterno.

They should be sacked too.

Fucking Sandusky gave a graduation speech two years ago.

This situation is disgusting and disturbing. I don't see much in the way of this ending well for anyone at Penn state involved.

I think I am attending Penn State at literally the worst possible time.

They'll recover. The university is bigger than some asshole who diddles kids.

Before this past weekend, it was kind of exciting to be rooting for Penn State football for the first time since I've been here. We had a chance. Could we beat Nebraska in our last home game of the year? The idea was fun.

Now the atmosphere at Beaver Stadium is going to be awkward. Can we sing "may no act of ours bring shame" as we do every Saturday? Can we cheer for this coaching staff as they take the field? I don't know. I might not know for a while.

Yeah, the university will recover in a few years' time. But I have a year and a half left. And it's basically been shot right to shit.

Here's the grand jury indictment. It is very explicit. Consider yourselves warned.

I read it on Saturday. It's just miserable.

It should be noted that the DA who decided not to press charges into 1998? He went missing six years ago. Parked his car in a parking lot and dumped his laptop in the river. Never heard from again. The last thing he ever searched on Google? "How to destroy a hard drive."

Well now it just turned into a major motion picture, or at least an episode of SVU.

But in all seriousness, I couldn't even read that whole thing. Awful.

Sickening.

And I'm sure its just the tip of the iceberg.

And the University Police investigated him in 1998 with the help of a victim's mother and the result was basically "I won't do it again"...and no charges filed...just inexcusable.

do you honestly want me to believe that in 1998 University Police investigated the long time defensive coordinator and, at that time, assumed successor to the throne for child molestation, and Joe Paterno, the human personification of Penn State, didn't know anything about it?

Give me a break. I'm sure that JoePa telling Sandusky a few months later that he would not be the next coach at PSU, and Sandusky soon retiring after that, wasn't related whatsoever...

Joe Paterno chose the image of Penn State over the protection of innocent children. He should be fired. Now.

Don't give me this "well he passed it up to the chain" bullshit. He WAS the chain. If he went to the AD or President of the school and demanded that Sandusky was banned from campus, it would have happened. But then it would have been public. Then people would have asked why, and eventually it would come out. He turned a blind eye to protect the Penn State brand, and in doing so, he is directly responsible for allowing this monster to continue molesting children.

Completely agree. Just a horrible story. So sad because everyone was led to believe if there ever was a clean program, on all levels, it was Penn St.
