    I have to disagree about the U. This is the kind of thing that happens when a town is built around a huge school, where the university becomes life and coaches become town heroes/gods. I have sympathy for those students that weren't involved in the riots or supporting them. Those that were in the riots or supported them deserve no sympathy whatsoever.

    This is gonna make for one hell of an ESPiN 30-for-30 documentary in 10-15 years or so. Old testimonies, documents dug up. Victim interviews with masked voices and obscured faces. And to top it all off, a tell-all prison interview with a near-death Jerry Sandusky.
    but when the trumpets blew again and the knights charged, the name they cried was "Stannis! Stannis! STANNIS!"

    As for the PSU alumni reaction, admitting Joe ****ed up is more then I expected. You need to get a grip and realize just how crushing this is to that community. Not everyone is going to react in a manner you deem appropriate. Get over yourself.

    I just threw up in my mouth! Who gives a flying **** about the alumni, students, etc! This is exactly what is wrong with this country we are more concerned about a god damn game then child welfare! If a school got the death sentence for gambling the PSU gets it for this and then some. They should lose everything including state and federal funding. The school leadership turned cheek while one of the most despicable crimes was committed for over a decade under their nose. On more then one occasion they had a chance to save a child and they failed! Those individuals should be having 60 years all the same as Sandusky.

    A society that fails to protect its children falls its self!

    I couldn't agree more on Nike I am done with them! Big freaking deal you took the name of the kid center! I am sure the Iraqi people removed Sadams name of their center for human rights! Give me a break Nike.

    Jcane I say let Paternos kid speak. Just shows everyone outside that sick twisted PSU CULT what a twisted **** his dad was and he is! My dad pulled that **** I would lead the charge to hang him.

    Fair enough.

    Living down the street to FSU gives me alittle bit of the perspective of PSU fans. I recall the anger and bitterness from FSU fans when Bobby Bowden was forced into retirement(despite having met the man a few times, and personally being of fan of his, i was in favor of his firing though not of the promotion of Jimbo).

    But, despite the outrage, there was no flipped cars and riots(at least that i can recall). And that was over not winning enough games, not the covering up of child rape. I get the devotion. Bowden was comparably worshipped here.
    But honestly, this crushing blow to the community of Penn State is a good thing. This thing was so gruesome and tragic that people need to be shaken up and get some perspective. Im glad the alumni arent seeing Paterno as a victim anymore....even if it came many, many, months late.

    I like this suggestion:

    To all the fools who rioted after Paterno was justifiably fired, please report to Beaver Stadium to aid in civilly bringing down that statue. To all the sycophants who still proudly wear their “Joe Knows” T-shirts, kindly spend a day volunteering with young victims of sexual assault. It’s precisely because of silence and fear that a staggering number of children—one in six, and that’s a conservative estimate—continue to be victimized by monsters like Sandusky.

    With its bronze finger raised to signify Penn State—or maybe the coach himself—is No. 1, the statue of Paterno now serves to taunt every child victim.
    Blow the damn thing up.

    As far as Im concerned this puts Paterno on the list of all time worst people in the world of sports. In fact it has to place him right near the top with OJ and LeBron.

    Hey now, The Juice was never was convicted of anything except robbery. He beat the murder rap, fair and square.

    Robbery isn't in the same stratosphere as covering up the Ticklemonster Tryst, so there's no way he's one of the "all-time worst".

    This is essentially what Paterno's legacy will be from now on. Even as people who helped build Paterno's supposedly pristine image over the decades realize that they've all been duped. We all were.

    http://espn.go.com/espn/story/_/id/8...no-true-legacy


    However, the most interesting thing in this piece is the part where Rick Reilly talks about the anonymous phone call he got one night from a Penn St. professor in 1986 while Reilly was there to do a fluff piece on Coach Paterno. There were folks back then who perhaps knew what the man was about long before anyone else did.
