From what I know so far....the grad assistant was McQueary. God bless him for actually reporting it. That could not have been easy.
It seems like Paterno followed the letter of the law. The university administration certainly did not follow the law.
I love Paterno, but at some point, shouldn't he have asked, "Hey...whatever happened to that thing with Sandusky?"
Penn State banned Sandusky from bringing kids to the football facilities in 2002...which is pretty strong evidence that they knew what was going on. But - and this is amazing - Sandusky was holding overnight football camps at the staellite campuses until 2008.

Paterno is God at PSU he wont be fired and he will not resign at the end of the season the only way this would kill paterno is if he was molesting boys other than that he will be their till he dies and u can take that to the bank

And it begins
Bob Knight was a god at Indiana.
etc, etc, etc.
I'm going to wait a bit before I really pass judgment, but if Paterno ends up being at fault for any of this, it'll be worse than throwing chairs across a basketball court and being a prick or punching a rival player in the neck.
Being a "god" means nothing.

Wondering if someone will do a Bang Style rant on coaches and atheletic directers.
Terrible story by the way. Sad to see yet another case of people covering up for **** like this.
(Also makes you wonder just how prevalent this kind of thing really is)

If it was your kid, would you forgive Paterno?
A lot of PSU heads are going to roll over this, and Paterno's legacy won't likely fully escape it, though because of his coaching career and the fact he did at least report the incident to his superiors, his reputation may not be completely tarnished, he could escape like Roethlisberger or Vick, though their legacies are, at the least, tainted.. Every single person who knew about an incident and failed to report it to police when Sandusky received no punishment, is responsible, this includes the the person from Public Welfare and the detective who interviewed Sandusky on the '98 incident.. Had police been involved early, the later incidents could have been stopped.
Very shameful events that's unfolding
