I don't mean to take the focus off of Pedd State but I was curious about your post so I ran a search. Only story I found after your hero was fired was an article saying he broke his promise to apologize to the rape victim.Attorney lambastes ex-Baylor coach Art Briles for reneging on deal to apologize to rape victim

Nothing and nobody has exonerated Briles.
Baylor, from the BoR, and the top administration down through the athletic department to the rapists themselves has slandered itself. The apologists need to come to terms with that and deal with it.

Why haven't the assistant coaches - participating in the rape cover up as indicated in the PH oral report - been fired?

Lots of parallels between Paterno & Briles. The sooner Baylor cleans house the sooner they can repair the damage they did to themselves. NOBODY else is responsible for the way the rape victims were treated by the corrupt culture there. Not the Internet critics, sportswriters, UT, PH, journalists, or Bevo.

It's easy to blame someone else who is not the god of football to his faithful followers.

Still waiting for you to provide real evidence to back this up. Until then we'll keep Briles in the POS Rapist Enabler catagory and you ae in different than the Paterno supporters.

Oh my god. Disgusting. I can't believe the NCAA did not give Penn State the death penalty, and i can't believe they repealed the sanctions on Penn State.

This here, Mod cut- delete)

I feel bad for the Penn State fans who know what happened was screwed up.

Anyone who tries to defend Paterno after this is scum of the earth and you oughta be ashamed of yourself.
While one agrees that the Penn State conduct was absolutely outrageous......

1. I saw a 60 minutes interview with the prosecutors, who said that Paterno had nothing to do with what went down. Now the 60 minutes interview v. what are in those deposition transcripts can be debated.

2. To be honest, $120 million in penalties ($60 to the victims, $60 fine), plus the players ability to transfer and play right away, or stay at Penn State as a student and keep scholarship. Plus the 5-years probation, etc! This, in addition to giving coaches permission to raid the Penn State campus. Most folk do agree that those penalties are unprecedented, and no walk in the park, either!

Kids and women have always been acceptable collateral damage when more important goals were at hand.

Like football.

It's a cautionary tale of the corruptible nature of college sports, and the power it holds over higher learning. It's all very sad. Universities and colleges are not meant to be held hostage to sport.

Paterno knew what was going on, but he washed his hands of it all. That makes him an enabler to keep an accused pedophile rapist to use campus facilities for decades. He is as guilty as the others for allowing it to happen.

And don't tell us he couldn't do anything about it. He was the most powerful man is that town & on campus, but he chose to close his eyes to child rape - all in the name of protecting a false reputation and football. Despicable. Period.

Same type of scandal at Baylor, except the victims were female and not minors.

No amount of revisionist history & whitewashing the football gods can change that for rational observers.

This is 100% on point. JoePa ran everything at that school, he had the ability to do something and he chose not to. That is what he will be remembered for, as he should be.


Now McQueary has been awarded $7.3 million. Very happy to see that. What Penn State did to that guy for simply revealing the truth and protecting future kids was horribly unfair, they deserve every bit of criticism. And by going to Paterno and not the police he confirmed just how much power Joe Pa had to stop this behavior, again he chose not to.

the story was horrible; I am not doubting Paterno knew about this or had a good idea, but I think it is time to put the story to bed. It is over, let's all hope we never see something like this again and go on.What good are we doing continueing to discuss it.

Because as long as there are people claiming Paterno did nothing wrong, and there are a ton of them, the debate goes on. Now we have this award and many are trying to say McQuary was a gold digger or other such nonsense, again sparking debate.
