    I am very honestly surprised. No way, no how did I see THIS one coming.

    Miami and all their "Issues"? Sure!
    OSU and the shenanigans, a little shocking that Tressel was such a dirtbag, but sure.

    JoPa????? No way, no how did I ever see this one coming. No way no how......



    Penn State is indeed going to pay very heavily for this.


    Honest question. How much does this dirty JoPa's legacy???

    Yeah, I agree and I think it sucks.

    I am brought down each year a little more by exactly what College football really is. Used to be a great bastion of Alma Matter against Alma Matter, but has morphed into nothing but Minor League sports in the guise of Collegiate $$$$.

    I will applaud when the cloak finally comes off, and athletes no longer have to attend class, which of course is paid for by all of us, to showcase their skills.

    A lot of people in these parts believed this could be JoePa's last year anyways, not just because he broke every record their is to break, but also because his health. He's not ill or anything, but he is physically weaker and really can't do as much as he used to.

    Now would Golden leave to become the HC of Penn State? Living in the heart of PA for most of my life, I can tell you that even back in 2008, the rumor was that Golden was next in line at Penn State and he wanted the job. The other name mentioned is Greg Schiano who also reportedly really covets the job.

    It all depends on who the new AD will be though. A lot of people want Tom Bradley as the HC (and many believe he is basically the HC now anyways), but a lot of people also want to get away from the current staff. Guys like Schiano and Golden coached briefly under JoePa, but have carved their own style over the years (Golden played under JoePa, but only coached under him for 1 year. Most of his time has been under Tom O'Brien and Al Groh. Schaino was there for 5 years, but also spent time in the NFL and coaching under Butch Davis at Miami)

    Before this incident, maybe. Now? Doubt it. This is going to kill recruiting for Penn State. If I'm a parent, I'm not sending my kid to a school that has a coach raping boys in the showers, and then covers it up, and I'm sure a hell of a lot of parents feel the same way.

    So a fan hears about a molestation case and the first thing he does is head over to a message board to gloat about how his team's scandal pales in significance.

    What Sandusky did was absolutely disgusting and I hope he gets locked up for the rest of his life for this. He is a monster.

    I see a lot of people blaming Paterno, and he does deserve some blame, but lets not make it out to be like he was a mastermind behind a huge cover up. McQuerry reported the incident to Paterno and he immediately reported it to Curley. As far as the law is concerned, Paterno did exactly what he was supposed to do. Curley and Schultz are the ones that swept it under the rug and now they are going to pay for their actions. Perhaps Paterno should have followed up on the incident, but lets not make Paterno out to be a bad guy in this. He did what he was required to do. Sandusky was not a coach anymore for the team, so Paterno had no real power over him in that situation.

    All of these incidents occurred through the The Second Mile, not the Penn State football team, it is why guys like Curley and Schultz are in big trouble.

    It has been widely speculated up here that this will be Paterno's last season. Has nothing to do with the Sandusky news, it has everything to do with Paterno's health and the fact that his contract is up. The rumor circulating over a month ago is that Urban Meyer might already have a wink wink deal to become the head coach in 2012. If not him, I could easily see Penn State putting a call into Al Golden, who you know would hop on the first available plane to ink that deal. Who wouldn't want to escape the mess that is the Hurricanes program? Also, don't try to compare the Sandusky news to what is going on with the Hurricanes, one is directly team related(Hurricanes), the other is a former coach using the college campus with no direct ties to the football team.

    This is certainly a bad situation and a black eye for Penn State, and heads will roll, but in no way affects the football team in the present or the future. I look forward to rooting my Lions on to hopefully a victory this weekend against Nebraska. If they win two of their final three games they will clinch a spot in the first ever Big Ten Championship game.

    Yea, Paterno did what he was LEGALLY obligated to do, but the fact that he let it die is morally wrong x100. Legality =/= morality. By not taking the issue to the authorities, Paterno had a hand in every time a child was molested by Sandusky after that point. In my eyes, theres no defense for that as a human being. He will get off legally, but I can never think of the guy the same way.

    As for Golden bolting, its certainly a possibility. Everyone pretty much knows PSU was Golden's dream job. i think its funny that you bring up the Miami scandal as a reason for him to bolt to PSU though. Thats rich. They wont have NCAA sanctions but youre kidding yourself if you think this story wont have a major impact on recruiting. What happened there is farrrrrr worse than anything that happened at UM. I rank drinking free booze and banging free escorts far better than an organization wide child molestation scandal.
