Did Paterno assault those kids?? Did Paterno see any kids get assaulted? Did Paterno let this pervert have access to PSU buildings. The answer is no.
Did Paterno report a second-hand report of what McQuery told him to his superiors? Yes.
Lots of blame to go around with this case and Paterno has taken plenty.
Taking the wins away was silly. As the NCAA keeps losing court battles and keeps turning over more evidence that they knew they didn't have the authority but could extort money from PSU and take care of one of their biggest critics....Paterno
Ask the then attorney general the same thing. He's now our governor, for a few more days, anyway. How did taking the wins from the program help the victims of that monster? All that did was punish the guys who suited up, dealt with the pain of the game, and gave everything they had, as well as punish Paterno for the actions of someone else. If PSU was involved in shady recruiting, yeah, take away the wins. I HIGHLY doubt that Sandusky molesting kids helped their recruiting.Washpa Randy said:You're correct jakesroost. Why don't we sk the Pennsylvania State Police, Pennsylvania Dept of Public Welfare and The Second Mile Organization that question as well. After all, all those organization investigated allegations made against Sundusky and none of them found him to be doing anything wrong. But, it should have been Joe Paterno's job to investigate and find guilt.
Exactly. Go into court sometime with testimony like "Well, this guy told me that this guy told him that he saw this." You won't even beat a ticket for an expired parking meter.Whaler said:Did Paterno report a second-hand report of what McQuery told him to his superiors? Yes.
Fitting place since he plunked down a lot of money to build the place.Buckethead said:
Only about 50% of NFL players have a college degree.steelerfan58 said:If you wish to be taken seriously, please spell pedophile correctly. He also had 5 undefeated seasons. Since at the time, the national championship was decided by arbitrarily voting on it, what more could Paterno have done? Under the playoff system, I am quite confident that the 1994 squad would have won the title. On the field, not the ballot box. Oddly, Paterno was well known for pushing his guys to take their academics very seriously, unlike guys like Bobby Bowden. Paterno did not view the guys as simply football players, they were STUDENT athletes. He realized that very, very few would be able to get by in life based on playing in the NFL, even those who were drafted, so he made sure they had some education to fall back on. He graduated 80 percent of his kids in 2011, most of whom could probably spell. The average graduation rate in Division I was 56%.
Nice try but funny how facts can sometimes get in the way of an agenda.jakesroost said:All this over a coach who only won 2 national titles in 45 yrs very few nfl players compared to other big programs. We are Petifile state university PSU
Again, Sandusky was investigated by the Pennsylvania State Police and The Pennsylvania Depart,ent of Public Welfare after one of he mothers made a complaint and had a recording of a conversation with Sundusky. Neither of those professional bodies found anything to press charges. Yet, a football coach is supposed to be the responsible party for this animal.Buckethead said:
