They are saying that Jail time for JoePa does remain a possibility if he is convicted on all counts..
It is impossible to believe this stuff is unfolding like this for JP and the Penn state program. It will be decimated.....
SO many screwed up lives because nobody would report this creep years ago.....just wow.

NC Skins letter worked. JoePa fired as Penn State head coach. Def. Coord. Tom Bradley named interim head coach.

Happy to see they're both out, but the wr coach and anyone else associated with this need to be fired too. F you JoePa. Especially considering your lame ass statement about being shocked and saddened considering you've known for years.

Good. When Paterno said in his statement that the Board of Trustees should “not spend a single minute discussing my status” I was pretty appalled. I mean that's a slap in the face to the Board. And what right does he have? If I was in his situation I couldn't go to my bosses and say "You know what, don't worry about me. I'm just going to go ahead and do my thing and leave when I'm ready to leave" Just doesn't and shouldn't work that way.

Marcellus Wiley said it best. How could the NCAA not allow Dez Bryant to play another game because he had dinner with Deion Sanders yet Joe Paterno could keep coaching until he decides he doesn't want to anymore.

Sorry, a legacy is ruined, especially so late in his life (kind of reminds me a bit of Helen Thomas' situation), but he had 10 years to do something about it. And he didn't. So he ruined his own legacy

And Sandusky. I mean it totally baffles me how a grown adult could even think of doing the things he did to those kids. And then to actually do them. I feel terrible for those poor kids. The grand jury report is unfortunately very graphic. And if you're mad about the situation without reading it, you'd be livid if you did

Yeah, when I heard JoePa say that, I thought, "Are you for real? You are going to steer the Board of Trustees into not talking about this?" Maybe he's just going senile but he is on another planet and not a very good one.

Re: Sex Abuse Scandal Rocks Penn State

Anyone catch the streets of State College? This student body reaction is scary. It's like the entire population is in a collective uproar over the firing... the firing of a pedophile enabler. You could throw this into a sociology intro textbook, under the Groupthink chapter. The defiant Penn State chants are eerily similar to those of a cult. I'm baffled as to how an entire community can actually muster up a movement in support of JoePa.

I want to volunteer for a Sandusky suicide watch.

it's insane, the only thing i can think is that it is mostly all young kids, alot of them probably under 20. i hope they are just unable to see the situation as a whole and would like to think that no one would ever support someone who enabled such a terrible thing to continue on under his watch. cause at the end of the day paterno knew about two seperate incidents and sandusky was still allowed on campus and with young chilidren, unexcusable.

Coincidentally, I think this is yet ANOTHER bad situation, although much lower down the scale, that JoePa could have prevented had he acted differently and with more forethought.
The writing was on the wall, he should have 'gracefully' stepped aside effective immediately. Since he chose to retire at the end of the season he forced the board's hand and had to be fired, which rallied the students even more.

Joe and the students that support him are just lost or refusing to realize he made a big error by not reporting this.

JoePa will cling to the few cult members that hang outside his house and still feel like he justified but the rest of the nation is shaking their heads at him.

Paterno Talks To Crowd - ESPN Video - ESPN

The guy needs to ride off into the sun set and let the coals cool; if he keeps talking to folks like this he is going to say something really dumb that may wind him up in more trouble.
