That is the problem with the whole damn situation.

    Joe Paterno is Penn State, and it goes way beyond his accomplishments on the field. What he has done for the school and the state of Pennsylvania for 46 years gets thrown out the window because a former coach was a child predator the AD failed to do anything with what Joe reported to him. That is why this is a damn shame. I am pissed right now, as is all of Penn State. Please don't try and lecture me on this, because you are not from here and do not know what Joe means to everyone. He didn't deserve to be fired this close to the end of the season. He deserved to be able to retire at the end of the year and have his last home game this weekend.
    Just because you're not seeing the media, etc., outside of Sandusky's house doesn't mean that they're not there. I feel bad for Joe but Joe brought this on himself.

    He knew what happened. He may have said what he said to the AD but then Joe seen Sandusky back on campus knowing what took place.

    Isn't that odd? Wouldn't that strike you as odd? Some neighbor of yours reportedly rapes a kid and the next day you see him outside checking his mail.

    "Hey neighbor!"

    That is the problem, this has nothing to do with the football program. It is like saying Virginia Tech should ban football because of the school shooting a few years back. This was an administration problem, not a football program problem.

No doubt there were about 3 people at least involved more than JoePa, but at the end of the day, his hands are far from clean and he got what was coming IMO.
    Our situation was blown out of proportion from the get-go just because it's the bad boy Miami Hurricanes and people want the Miami Hurricanes to suffer. When all of this is said and done with the Miami program, it's not going to be near as bad as everyone thinks it will be because there's so much he said she said going around. And Miami self-reported all of this last year.

    Joe built a solid reputation over all of these years and it took him all of five minutes to destroy it by not doing more about his friend, Slambuttsky pounding out little boys on campus.

    I totally agree that others were MORE responsible. The AD and VP deserve every second of jail time they get. I just cant get on the "Joe got a raw deal" bandwagon. You even admit that he did not do everything he should have. Not doing everything you should do to stop a crime of that magnitude is awful no matter how you slice it. Im sure he has done good for PA in his years as HC, but he woke up every day for 10 years and made the same mistake every day. Thats not something to just blow off. I think its crazy that some people are acting like Paterno got a raw deal when you stop and consider the hand the kids were dealt that Paterno could have very well stopped if he had taken more initiative that the bare minimum. You said yourself, JoePa IS PSU. Thats why he is he one catching flack.

    Da ****?

    Not much you can do about a shooting on ONE day of ONE morning as opposed to butt raping little kids for a decade when people knew about it.

    Could he have done more? Yes. But he is being made to look MUCH worse than what he should, all because a scumbag of a person, and horrible/unethical school officials who didn't act upon it when PATERNO informed them. We also are not aware of the office politics involved when it comes to why Paterno did not do more. Bottom line, he didn't do anything illegal, he reported it, and he was going to bow down with some grace at the end of the year. You DON'T fire an 84 year old man with the legacy he has left, after the things I just stated, and not even tell him face to face. It's sad.
    You seem to be one of the few in this thread that gets it. Nice to see not everyone is crazy in regards to this matter.

    I'd put it above murder actually. It's atrocious. But I still think Paterno should have not been allowed to coach another season and retire this year. Either way, it's a horrible situation and I can't really blame anyone for their opinions. What bothers me the most are the school administrators who chose to cover it up after being informed by Paterno. Penn State is looking pretty bad right now and if it had happened to UM, where I'm a student right now, I would feel hurt as well, and I can't really blame anyone for defending their school at this point. Not defending the people involved, but defending your school spirit.

Because they fired him, you hope they damage the school? Thats nuts. There literally has not been one person post in either thread about his that thought JoePa should keep his job other than the one Penn State fan. Think about it. You think you MAY be looking at this with PSU glasses? You also posted about getting Urban Meyer which tells me all I need to know about the objectivity level here. **** Paterno. Maybe now he can think about the kids he allowed to suffer. He got off easy too...he only lost his job. Id say the victims of the rapes had it worse than he does.

    As far as me only saying this because I want the Canes scandal out the spotlight...guess what? Nobody even cares about it anymore. Its old news. We will get hit with some scholarship losses, lose a bowl game or two and that'll be that. You were the one posting repeatedly that the death penalty was on the table for us which we explained was totally false and you kept saying it. You acted like UM had covered up raping children or something. Talk about not being objective. Now PSU gets in trouble and you think there should be no fallout and its all media, when PSU did something that was even worse than UM did. I dont care about our scandal anymore. I just think its bull**** that Paterno sat and allowed children to be hurt.
    It is pretty ridiculous watching Nublar post now that the shoe is on the other foot. Hypocrisy at it's finest. Cmon Nublar, it's not just mere coincidence that everybody on this board is ripping Paterno except for you, the only Penn State fan here. And saying you hope students vandalize the school? Cmon man. Paterno admitted himself that this is the greatest sorrow of his life and that he wishes he had done more about this. Even he acknowledges he was wrong, but you can't...
