8-4.

Imagine the signs and chants at the horseshoe after the year their program has had....they're thrilled to not be the team under the microscope.

Yeah, Penn State will lose the last three and whatever shitty bowl they play in. The players have basically been told to stay off campus. They've been locked in their apartments playing Modern Warfare all week.

Yup, the amount of child rape jokes heard at Big Ten sporting events will be increased x 10,000,000

Well then what was that practice that Joe Pa went to this afternoon? Were the players not there?

Oh, well, yeah, they're going to practice. I just mean they're not exactly having a normal week in the lead up. They're at practice and then they're basically insulated to try to keep them away from it all.

I'm going to a charity event tomorrow night that some players are supposed to be at. We'll see what happens with it.

Defending Paterno, I guess. It's just a mob that's pissed about this and doesn't know what to do. People want Spanier to show himself. People are afraid of the change of losing Paterno, though. They don't really know what they want. They're just upset. It's unexplainable. I'm just sitting in my apartment, reading about it all. I'm listening to a radio host out in Pittsburgh rightfully burying Penn State students. I can't argue with it.

I still just don't know what to do.

What can you do? If you don't side with the people that are rioting, then don't riot. Chill in your apartment. Listen to some tunes.

Paterno is getting the full attention right now because he is the most powerful person on that campus. He's more powerful than the president of the school, or the AD. He is the almighty when it comes to Penn State. The campus was a small agriculture school before he got there.

He is in the spotlight because nobody with a rational mind can actually pull themselves to believe that he knew nothing.

When it all comes out in the end, JoePa will look like a giant piece of shit. I understand how that hurts people who loved him and held him up high, but it's true none the less.

In 1998 Sandusky was investigated by university police. A full report was made. The first copy of that report would have gone to Joe Paterno. There is zero chance that he would not have known. Zero.

A few months later Sandusky, who was widely believed to be JoePa's successor, retired suddenly. Nobody really knew why. Now we know. You want to tell me those things aren't related? Come on...

In 2002 mcqueary saw Sandusky committing anal rape of a young boy in a shower. Mcqueary went to joepa and then up the ladder. He was supposedly very shaken by what he saw.

Mcqueary then had an incredibly fast trip up the coaching ladder. Going from unpaid GA to a full time coach in mere months. Now he's head of penn states recruiting, a position coach and assistant offensive coordinator, and he stands next to joe in the booth st every game.

He also would see sandusky still around the campus, around the team, sometimes with young boys, for 9 years after he witnessed the man rape a 10 year old boy.

You want me to believe that mcqueary's quicker than usual ascension up the ranks, that began right after the 2002 incident, isnt related? Come on.

Sandusky is, by far, the biggest bad guy here. Obviously. But paterno is next, the administration and mcqueary as well. There will be a special place in hell reserved for all of them.

Yeah, I really have no sympathy for the whole "the media is treating Paterno unfairly" argument. The media apotheosized him for something as ultimately inconsequential as coaching a football team; they are well within their rights to rip him down over something as deathly serious as being an accomplice in child rape.

As for any PSU students supporting Paterno, it's just more sad evidence of a culture that believes nothing could possibly be more important than winning a bloody football game.

this image alone tells us exactly how this was able to be buried for so long.
