The Final Nail In The Coffin For Joe Pa

Two weeks ago was a great day for Joe Paterno at Penn State when he passed Eddie Robinson as the All-Time Division I victory leader. What a difference two weeks can make. Joe Paterno, the head coach at Penn State since 1966 on Wednesday evening
was fired by the Board of Trustees of the University. The Jerry Sandusky sex scandal has been totally spinning out of control and Paterno became another casualty of this big time scandal. Paterno had stated that this would be his last year as head coach
of Penn State but the public outcry had become too much for the university to ignore.

The Grand Jury findings earlier in the week forced the resignations of Penn State AD Tim Curley and Vice President Gary Schultz. The report stated that the two did not do enough and lied to the Grand Jury. The Board of Trustees along with the firing of head
coach Paterno, fired the University President Graham Spanier. The entire situation at Penn State has totally spiraled out of control.

The Grand Jury, spurred by a complaint made in 2009 by a 15-year old had been investigating assistant coach Jerry Sandusky for 18 months. There are so many questions that still need to be asked and answered by a lot of people. What did Joe Paterno know and when did he know? What did the Penn State administration know and when did they know it.

Also who needs to answer some questions is the Campus and State College Police forces. I just find it very hard to believe that neither one of these forces did not know of this in any way. I find that to be very concerning. Why was children protective services and public welfare not made aware of any of this?

The state of Pennsylvania requires this by law if any abuse involves a youth, it has to be reported. It seems that everyone just wanted to keep this quite and keep it in house at Penn State. As this snow ball gets bigger and bigger the more of a cover up is apparent.

The 23 page Grand Jury report is very damaging and concerning. Reading this report over and over makes me so sick to my stomach. How in the world could anyone cover this up and try to hide this? All who knew should be fired and well investigated by authorities. Jerry Sandusky, the former coach at Penn State faces 40 counts of criminal charges. His contacts were with young kids who were troubled and were part of his charity group, Second Mile.

Sandusky was first accused in 1998 and he retired at Penn State. From 1998 to 2008 things got even more troubling and disturbing. Sandusky had complete access to the University and football facilities. According to the Grand Jury report Sandusky had numerous contacts and interactions with many youth children. He had them to his home, the Penn State football facility, and at numerous Penn State football games. Reading this report just makes you want to shake your head in disgust and makes you sick to your stomach. How could this have been going on for such a long period of time with a blind eye?

The wheels in State College, Pennsylvania keep spinning. This has become a complete story. Everyone needs to take responsibility here. Children were taking advantage of by a man who took his stature and reputation to a different level. Sandusky used his power and influence to hurt innocent children. The State of Pennsylvania, Centre County, and school administrators are to blame.

Why was this ignored for such a long time? Penn State football had total rein and the welfare of these children were never considered, which is sad and just dead wrong. All of the people in authority need to step up and take total responsibility here. There is a major black eye in Happy Valley. The final nail has been put into place. This scandal is going to be very hard for the university to overcome.

  • Cowards. ALL OF THEM!

  • Grreat article on Joe PA… http://joeposnanski.si.com/2011/11/10/the-end-of-paterno/ check it out…

  • there is a dude named Madden – a Pittsburg sports repoter – who is on record as saying that organization – was pimping young boys to rich donors and saying this is going to get much, much worse apparently there were two different reporters diggin in this before the case blewup

  • Navy, I have had talks with people, high within law enforcement, & all of them are saying this is going to go to Cult, & secret society proportions. What no one is even talking about is what happened to the DA that disappeared, & then all of his files, his computer & hard drive wound up in the river. The Governor needs to send this to the Supreme court, or the cover-up will continue. I hate to say it, but this is like Hollywood material. So scary, so sad!

  • Well if secret society(cult) is involved then wow!!!! No wonder McQueary kept quiet. they would have killed him if he talked

  • tonto, this is crazy stuff. Sandusky is said to have started the Second mile, so he can just pimp kids out to wealthy freaks. This entire thing is getting seriously scary. It makes my soul shriek! God help those kids!

  • It is going to come out, that this goes to Politicians, Law enforcement, Wealthy families, etc. Everyone in that University knew what was going on, & was either scared, involved, or simply didn’t give a $#!t. Is it any coincidence that JoePa hired a high powered attorney last night. Why did he? To cover his @$$, his involvement, & to protect his bull$#!t legacy. This is going to be pretty ugly, if it is investigated correctly. Governor you need to step up, the entire country is watching you, do the right thing, & go all out to expose this. It has to be done, for the love of God!

  • The DA orginally mentioned publicly that Joe Paterno was “not” part of this investigation “at this time. Now that he’s been dismissed, the “at this time” part has now begun as he will be questioned and investigated more thoroughly

  • anyone ever see the movie “the skulls”? That’s what Penn State was. This will get very messy when its all said and done and this is just the tip of the iceberg. Sandusky is being investigated as we speak into charges he was pimping out kids to wealthy donators to the program. Sure (definite sacrasm) joe had nothing to do with it. That must be why he lawyered up with one of the highest profile guys in the business..

  • R_R, & the Freemasons were involved with starting PSU, in 1850’s. Remember the names of Freemasons, Skull & Bones & the Illuminati. Nothing would surprise me one bit, anymore. This world is f^#@ed, corrupt, & morally bankrupt. The $$$ families & secret societies run this world, & go hand & hand. I wouldn’t be surprised one bit, if some cult, satanic worship, child sacrifice type deal, is going on in unhappy valley. I’ve heard alot of scary $#!t, from quite a few reputable, trust worthy people, the last couple days. When all is said & done, I pray to God, that all of the truths are exposed.
