    Why is the Penn State football team being punished for something one man did year's ago?

    Ok this is based on something I heard and if it is correct I don't understand. Please set me straight.

    Okay it wasn't years ago when it ended, It was years ago when it started. The reason for such a stiff penalty is because the administration as well as the coaching staff knew all about it and allowed him to keep his job. Nothing at all was done to punish this man until now. He deserves life for molesting all of those small boys.

      Right. I guess I'm looking at the students being punished for something somebody else did. But, I understand the involved staff is I guess the ones being punished. I feel bad for the students. Thanks for your comments.

    Who enabled Jerry Sandusky, the nut case, who will die in jail?

    1. Joe Paterno. He’s dead.

    2. PSU Vice President Gary Schultz and Athletic Director Tim Curley, both of whom will likely be doing hard time for perjury. And PSU President Graham Spanier who also may go to jail. Maybe not. In any event, his career and reputation are ruined.

    3. Back in 1998, the District Attorney, Department of Public Welfare, Children Services, and police investigators copped out (no pun intended). In reviewing the documents from back then, many conclude charges should have been filed against Sandusky. If they had been, the rest of this tragedy likely would have not happened.

    4. The parents of the victims. With a few exceptions. Your child is being sexually abused over a long period of time, and you have no clue?

    5. Sandusky’s wife and other close family members.

    6. The media. They were able to figure out Tiger Woods was doing a bunch of hot babes. Why couldn’t they figure out Jerry Sandusky was doing a bunch of young boys for years and years?

    7. Penn State students and alumni. NOT. PSU will pay out far more in civil lawsuits than what the NCAA billed them for, and this cost will to some extent be borne by the students, alumni, and taxpayers.

    Anybody with a brain bigger than a pea can figure this one out. There’s plenty of blame to be passed around, but PSU students and alumni don’t deserve any of it.

    The NCAA is a kangaroo court.

      Thanks for responding. I see you feel the way I do about the students. I thought i was missing something. You think they could have found another way to without punishing the students?
