    As to the fact that Penn State is paying for the legal defense of those who were completely complicit in this cover up, and those who have been proven to have lied to the grand jury investigating it-I cant help but believe there is going to be tremendous pressure to cut them all loose.

    If I were a Penn state grad, I would be making quite a few phone calls fwiw.
    Just waiting for the Booster to throw their in to the mix.

    Hmm.....

    Former Centre County DA Ray Gricar's reasons for not pursuing case against Jerry Sandusky are unknown (pennlive.com)
    Prosecutor Ray Gricar wasn’t one to be intimidated by high-profile cases.

    He didn’t dabble in politics or enjoy limelight.

    Gricar, who went missing in 2005 and declared dead in July, was an introverted man who affiliated himself with few and wasn’t easily swayed by others.
    ---
    The state attorney general’s office says Gricar is the one who made the decision not to prosecute Jerry Sandusky in 1998.
    ---
    Gricar disappeared April 15, 2005, after taking a day off work to drive to Lewisburg. His disappearance has been the subject of a lot of speculation.

    His laptop hard drive, which was found dumped in the Susquehanna River near where his car was parked in Lewisburg, was too badly damaged by water to be read.

    What information on that computer was destroyed is left to conjecture.

    Concise Fox Sports column from the excellent Jason Whitlock:

    Penn St. scandal should force Paterno out
    ---
    Institutions are valued more than human beings.
    ---
    Safeguarding JoePa, marketing and exploiting his march to victory 409, appears to have been more important than exposing allegations against longtime defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, charged with sexually abusing teenage boys.
    ---
    There should be an asterisk next to JoePa’s 409 victories. And if not an asterisk, at least a dollar sign, America’s favorite religious symbol, our justification for valuing institutions more than human beings.
    the rest at link above

    Six Weeks Ago, Penn State Dedicated The Gary Schultz Child Care Center (Deadspin)
    Addressing University Park's shortage of options for young children, Penn State opened an $11 million dollar child care facility over the summer. In early 2010 it was announced that the building would be named for the recently retired Gary Schultz. The same Schultz who is out on bail today, but was forced to surrender his passport.

    Schultz was in charge of university police, and "never sought or reviewed a police report on the 1998 incident and never attempted to learn the identity of the child in the shower in 2002." He testified under oath that Mike McQueary had informed him of the sexual nature of what he witnessed in the shower, but Schultz only described the incident to Penn State President Graham Spanier as "horsing around."

    Police: Paterno didn't do enough (AP)
    HARRISBURG, PA. (AP) Football coach Joe Paterno and other Penn State officials didn't do enough to try to stop suspected sexual abuse of children at the hands of a former assistant football coach, the state police commissioner said Monday.

    Paterno may have fulfilled his legal requirement to report suspected abuse by former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, state police

    Commissioner Frank Noonan said, ''but somebody has to question about what I would consider the moral requirements for a human being that knows of sexual things that are taking place with a child.''

    He added: ''I think you have the moral responsibility, anyone. Not whether you're a football coach or a university president or the guy sweeping the building. I think you have a moral responsibility to call us.''

    As stinky as this is I am sure glad to see the light of day cast over the situation. I listened to an interesting debate on my local radio today. They all cared much more about protecting JoPa than the children but the moderator did say that this must feel to Penn like the priest cover-up felt to the Catholic church.

    Big fall from grace.
    Just my opinions (and I have been wrong before)!

    I just can't understand why no one tried to find out the identity of the 10-year old and just thought they were ok.
    These poor children, were taken into a program to help them, and this is what happens?
    And he even adopted one of them?
    Sick, sick, sick!

    Joe Paterno will be holding a press conference at 12:30 PM EST. He says he will only talk about the Nebraska game, but I don't know how well that will go. If you don't live in the local area, it will probably be on the Big 10 Network or the cable news channels.

    While the Sanduskys could not have children of their own, they adopted six, which is one of those facts that feels telling only in retrospect.

    Penn State Said to Be Planning Paterno’s Exit Amid Scandal (New York Times)

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Joe Paterno’s tenure as coach of the Penn State football team will soon be over, perhaps within days or weeks, in the wake of a sex-abuse scandal that has implicated university officials, according to two people briefed on conversations among the university’s top officials.

    How can any football player go into those showers knowing little boys were raped in there by a sick monster?
