But, there are still victims of Sandusky, ready to testify...in graphic detail about the abuse that occurred. That may be the issue for Sandusky.

University officials at Penn State are now covered with Joe Pa's death, no verification of what he said, how he said it, or to whom he said it.

That most certainly does not "cover" the Board with those of us who believe that it was too Politically Correct, too much afraid of offending, that it failed to act strongly in the University's defense .... to separate the actions of one depraved individual from the aura of "collective guilt" which a gang of outsiders immediately attempted to hang on both the football program and the University itself.

We'll be watching just as closely as everyone else; and if evidence of an organized effort to aggrandize the original charges surfaces, I hope just as much attention will be drawn to those behind it as was to Coach Paterno.

Would you ignore a screaming child??

In addition yes this is a Sandusky/Second Mile scandal but it is also a Penn State scandal too. You cannot separate Sandusky from Penn State. The same with The Citadel scandal in South Carolina.
RIGHT ON Carolina Woman! 1000 reps for you!
