Only since you were 12 or 14 and didn't receive proper instructions from a coach.

Maybe some of us never graduated to watching pro football.

So McCreary testified in court again yesterday. It blows my mind that this grown, fit, athletic man did absolutely nothing when confronted with a grown man engaging in "sexual acts" with a minor. His response to seeing it? He slammed his locker (hoping that would break off the activity, I'm sure), walked within 6 feet of the two and made direct eye contact with both of them, and then walked out.

Disgusting.

Didn't he send an email out to friends or former teammates telling them he stopped it?

Cause from what I read and heard yesterday, doesn't look like he stopped it.

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.
