Re: Sex Abuse Scandal Rocks Penn State

In a perfect world Penn State would be shunned and just shrivel up and blow away. No one should want to be associated with something that deeply flawed.

Sadly I doubt that will be the case.

The Big Ten Network didn't cover any of the press conference instead showing old Big Ten games. Their reasoning: they are "not and never intended to be a news organization"

That's a bunch of bull. They have to cover this

Wow. I haven't seen anything yet but did the NCAA take the death penalty off the table? Because it is absolutely horrendous that after all this, the penultimate blow, they are still trying to protect themselves. What massive pieces of shit.

Re: Sex Abuse Scandal Rocks Penn State

they seem to deserve the ncaa death penalty, but the main culprits (JoePa and Sandusky) are out of the picture... I'm sure ADs and other knew too though. It can't just be a slap on the wrist, it's got to be severe.

So I see Penn State had uniform security yesterday evening and through the night guarding the Paterno statue. Amazing to see where their concerns still lie...

I understand where they are coming from, seeing that the statue could attract angry people, but it just sends the wrong message.

They really need to start disassociating Joe Pa. from the school, but I think its going to be a slow process. I'm sure some of you've been there, but State College worships him. Every store, restaurant, building, etc. I doubt that's going to change quickly, although I think it should.

For the record, the statue needs to come down but its gonna take a while for everyone to get their heads out of the denial sand.

You would think they would remove it over the summer, before the students get back. They should do it quickly, without annoucing it.There will be riots if they did it during the school year.

Funny that the man that put them on the map is also the one that completely destroyed them.

Re: Sex Abuse Scandal Rocks Penn State

It's hard to really believe any of the "good" he did was even sincere or true anymore. If he covered (or at least helped cover) this up, why should I believe he was always on the up with smaller things like recruiting?

In many ways it's only symbolic but remove his name from buildings, take down the statue, remove funding for the school, shut the program down. Don't shut it down before 2013 or even 2014 though. Give the players on the roster right now the opportunity to transfer. Waive the one year waiting period to play after a transfer for these students.

I mean I still can't get over the fact that it was 1998 when he first knew about this. 13 years.

It's just so appalling on so many levels.

They should just avoid football all together right now on the BTN. They should just switch over to women's college volleyball until everything dies down.

I had been saying they need to take it down and return it to the family before this report.

Now, I think a public destruction of the thing is appropriate.

Happens a lot when people put someone on a pedestal, you know.

It truly is horrible. I do think that this issue didn't occur just because these 4 are bad people. The issue here is the money and power that comes with college football. This could've happened at any school. With all the money involved it was just easier, in their minds, to ignore the issue or minimize it.

I'm not trying to diminish how horrible it is; I just think we need to take a long hard look at what college sports, particular mens football and basketball, have become. Saying its all on Joe Pa., and that's it, is a gross simplification of the entire problem (too much money in college sports). All that being said, its pathetic these 4, and the Board, let something llike this happen.
