    just an FYI, unless it comes out JoePa knew has been lying, nobody in PA is going to go after him.

    Here's a link to a pdf copy of the grand jury testimony. This is very detailed and graphic.

    I don't live in Pennsylvania so perhaps you can straighten this out. Are failure to report a felony and failure to report a case of child abuse/neglect not crimes there? Because here both are misdemeanors and and in Florida they're felonies. What Joe Pa and McQuery did would definitely fall under those 2 crimes.

    under PA law, JoePa TECHNICALLY did nothing wrong as the state DA has even admitted, that McQuery told JoePa almost right away (he freaked out when he saw what happened and contacted his dad who calmed him down) McQuery also testified during the investigation. JoePa told his superior the AD. Almost everybody agrees that he should have followed up or gone to the cops directly. But (again this is from the DA) JoePa told the AD (his boss) and the Chancellor who resigned today who then proceeded to cover it up.

    Now a lot of people, myself included, are being critical of JoePa for being so trusting of his superiors/not taking matter into his own hands. With the info I know from reading things the last couple days, I do feel he should have done something else. But also in reading, he wasn't as inactive as people think. Other articles have pointed out how Tim Curley, Graham Spanier, and Gary Schultz had been trying to push JoePa out as PSU head coach back then (that's when Penn State was really struggling) and they haven't had the best relationship.

    So while people want to jump on JoePa, there is more to the story

    Well this puts every other NCAA violation in perspective. Sickest thing I've ever heard. Penn St is done. Joe Pa's legacy gone. The old buzzard should just be grateful if he avoids the lowest circle of hell. People defending him revolt me. Legally covering your *** doesn't absolve you of the moral obligation to do something when some creep is *** raping little kids in your showers. Everyone aware of the scandal sound like gutless wretches not worth the oxygen they're stealing. They can never live it down and are damned by their inaction.

    I don't think I've ever even seen a Nittany Lion to be honest.

    Is that like the opposite of a cougar? I hooked up with a couple of cougars before.

    Why would you want to cover up something as disgusting as this?

    I'd have lit the dude on fire.

    I don't get it man.

    Someone tells JoePa, "Hey Slammbuttsky is raping kids on campus."

    JoePa tells the AD and then JoePa sees Slammbuttsky back on campus at Ped State.

    Really? Something didn't go off in your head that hey this isn't right. Slammbuttsky shouldn't ever be back on campus.
