I won't sit here and act like I was never a Penn State fan. I always had a soft spot in my heart for seeing that old guy succeed. Now that the house of cards has tumbled and they were all implicated, I propose to take down his statue, change the team mascot (I'm being dead serious) and maybe even start going by the full name of Pennsylvania State instead of Penn State. What happened is horrible and they all had the wool pulled over everyones eyes including everyone at ESPN who immortalised that Joepa. I always had respect for JoePa and Bobby Bowden because they were always portrayed in the same catagory as old guys who could still get it done who were humble smartasses. Now its hard to know who to trust anymore. What's really sad is that this probably goes on a lot more than what people wanna talk about but a positive to gain from the situation is all of the people who have now come out and talked about their abuse. They were doing a news story here about how this story has given a lot of kids courage to step up and say something if they are being abused. You guys can flame me for once liking Pennsylvania State and wanting them to succeed, that's fine, but I want to focus on the positive that this situation can manifest going forward. And yes, 5 year minimum death penalty... make Penn State go to D2 for 5 more years while they are on probation.... and let them earn their way back on to the field. I think a lot of people knew something was going on. I was listening to a late night ESPN radio show and one of their insiders said that a lot journalists at ESPN knew about this situation way before the general public... They just couldn't come out with it because it was hearsay to them at this point. Makes you wonder if ESPN knew, who else knew and either couldn't talk about it or chose not to do so... I also hear the ESPN knew about JoePa coverup before his death but didn't wanna crucify him because they knew he was practically on his death bed. Just a sad situation all around.
