What I meant in that hastily typed post on my phone: I think he was taking advantage of the phrasing to make it seem like he did something when he actually didn't do anything.

Here's what happened, from what's been said and from my understanding of it all: McQueary walks into the locker room and hears people in the shower. He hears that now infamous slapping sound and infers that people are having sex in the shower. He goes to try and see who it is and realizes it's Sandusky and this kid. He slams the locker door to get their attention, sees them both stop and look at him, and then leaves. In a panic, he calls his father and goes to his house. He talks with him and decides to go to Paterno the next day. He tells Paterno what happened without getting into specifics because he's terrified of making things uncomfortable with Paterno.

I am amazed by the reaction of former Penn State players and boosters when the school hired Bill O'Brien. In the wake of everything that was made public a couple of months ago it seemed like a no-brainer that the university had to hire someone from outside the school with no former ties to Paterno or Sandusky. But when the announcement was made the reaction was anger that interim coach Tom Bradley didn't get the job. I can see them criticizing O'Brien's qualifications to be head coach, but the anger was more that he was an 'outsider'. Bradley is a guy who had been there for over thirty years. He played for Sandusky's defense, and had been Sandusky's assistant coach and had replaced him as defensive coordinator. He most likely had heard the whispers about Sandusky for a long time and later he most certainly knew about the allegations and internal investigations and cover-ups. But he stayed in line and kept it quiet. The fact that anyone actually thought that Bradley was going to be named head coach just goes to show how ingrained the 'Penn State Way' 'Team First' mentality was there.

As I'm sure you're all aware by now, but Joe Paterno has passed.

ETA: Just noticed it was mentioned in the College Football thread. Sorry.

Hey everybody, if you missed Coach Paterno's memorial, don't worry. It'll be coming out on DVD.


Ugh.

All charitable efforts since the scandal have been for RAINN and THON. RAINN is for child abuse awareness, THON is for childhood cancer.

There's plenty to criticize here without going after the sale of a DVD for charity, is my point.

There shouldn't be any DVD at all. Period. The man is dead. Time to move on. I don't give a shit if it's for charity.

You're saying his family (not the university) should not put out a DVD to raise money for charities that help raise money and awareness for good causes?

They need to cut out Phil Knight's grandstanding speech. Knight basically put Paterno back up on the highest pedestal and tried to erase any hint of responsibility from him for Sandusky being allowed to remain affiliated with Penn State for years even while the grand jury investigation was going on. And make no mistake - it was Paterno who allowed that. He didn't answer to anyone at Penn State. I found Knight's speech very inappropriate especially since Paterno himself said he realized he had been wrong.

Yeah, I refused to applaud that speech. One of the few, anyway.
