A word here. As controversial as this subject is and as volatile as this subject is going to get as we move further here, I'm going to make this thread a "sticky", most likely until the end of the college fb season, unless the thread suddenly runs out of steam, which I doubt-for now anyway.

We're just going to go with one thread here regarding Penn State, Joe Paterno, the charges against the university, etc. We've had other subjects that were plenty controversial and different threads were started, many by people who rarely post in sports, much less college football. We'll just go with one thread on this.

Early reports are he is retiring at the end of the season.

Once again, he and his program are more important than anything else.

PSU's trustees are gutless if they do not remove him immediately and by failure to do so are complicit in the ultimate moral failure that led to more than a dozen young boys being abused.

Penn State will have this smear on them forever. It will never be forgotten. And well it shouldn't.

The only way Joe gets rid of this is by denouncing this behavior in public, all over all the networks and using this chance to come clean and apologize. He might. But personally I doubt it. The mother of all silence the catholic church is behind him and inside him and we all actually do know what they do. Tickets for heaven yup step right up but the real price for getting in whether it's heaven or protection from the law is their SILENCE.

Agreed. As a PSU fan (and about to marry a PSU alum), I am really troubled that they are letting Paterno finish out the season. There is absolutely no excuse as to why McQueary didn't take matters into his own hands and stop Sandusky from violating an innocent child. There is also no excuse as to why Paterno and Co. didn't immediately notify the authorities.

I am still trying to figure out why those two LEOs didn't arrest Sandusky the second he admitted in the victim's living room that he violated the young boy. But I do know for certain that PSU will not be seeing another dime from my fiancee or my family until everyone involved is fired and charged with a crime.

For years I've been questioning why McQueary was even a coach at Penn State. He was a mediocre QB at best for that school, and he becomes a coach? This whole situation reeks of nepotism/cronyism all in the name of protecting a sexual predator. Disgusting.

We have tix to the Nebraska game this weekend and we will not be going.

I agree. It's further insult to allow him to continue to coach the rest of the season. For him to do so is further testimony to arrogance and simply not getting it.

Good for you. For this to happen like this is a betrayal to the good people that love PSU as well.

I would love to see a boycott of the game. Of course there is no chance in hell of that happening. If I was a parent of a player on the team I would certainly have a long conversation with him and throw out the idea of not playing.

Paterno's quitting is no big deal. The higher-ups wanted him to do that almost a decade ago. The Board of Trustees need to fire him.

Sandusky is a putrid monster. He needs to be locked away for life.

If I were a player I would transfer immediately. I wouldn't want to be associated with that cesspool.
