Penn St sued for $4 million by Mike McQueary

mike-mcqueary

With all the vacated Joe Paterno wins, the last time Penn State won a football game, officially, Mike McQueary was the quarterback. Today he’s suing the school where he made his name for $4 million- which is probably much much more than the victims of Jerry Sandusky will get.

McQueary is seeking whistleblower status and wrongful termination damages. Right now he’s unhirable by pretty much anyone in college football. Although his status as a whistleblower is questionable. Remember, he waited nine days to tell anyone after he told Paterno that he saw Sandusky raping a boy in the shower. Then he waited another nine years to talk again.

McQueary is expected to be a main witness in the case against Graham Spanier and Tim Curley.

Penn State players defecting en masse

Four Penn State players are gone. Redshirt safety Tim Buckley transferred to NC State. He was the first. Then came star tailback Silas Redd who rushed for over 1200 yards last year. He’s now a USC Trojan.

Junior TE Kevin Haplea is expected to transfer to Florida State. Only had 3 catches, and 1 TD but was an integral part of their blocking scheme.

More Penn State coaches say they showered with young boys

penn-st.-logo

Just when you thought the details of the Jerry Sandusky scandal, and the Penn State cover-up of his alleged child rape couldn’t offend your sensibilities and morals any further, we learned today during the Sandusky trial that other coaches, in addition to Jerry Sandusky used to shower with little boys in Happy Valley.

Yes, this only gets creepier, sicker and weirder. Apparently, it was common practice for grown adult men to be showering with young boys in the PSU college football program.

From the Miami Herald:

Pedophilia Stadium instead? Paterno family turns down Penn St. stadium namesake

joe-paterno

The family of Joe Paterno turned down an offer from Penn State University, which sought to rename Beaver Stadium after the late college football leader in Division 1 coaching victories, according to a report from The Patriot-News yesterday.

How about Child Rape Stadium instead? That way you can name it after Paterno’s right hand man of many years Jerry Sandusky. I just realized how odd it is that the stadium shares its name with a slang term for female genitalia, when it’s now become synonymous with the type of acts that only NAMBLA would approve of; illegal and immoral behavior by a man who isn’t really interested in “beaver.” (allegedly)

(again how the f*** is Jerry Sandusky actually married? Who the f*** marries/stays married to [an alleged] child rapist?)

Penn State spring football, life after Jerry Sandusky, Joe Paterno

jerry_sandusky

It was the biggest fall from grace in sports history. Joe Paterno, the all time college football leader in wins, lives just long enough to see his reputation tarnished as an enabler of child rape, and the job he held for multiple decades terminated.

Before Paterno passed on, he stayed alive long enough to see his former right hand man, Jerry Sandusky, deservedly vilified in the media as one of the biggest monsters to disgrace the game.

And of course, this was all the biggest sports news story of 2011. As it should have been.

With Paterno deceased and Sandusky no longer a permanent fixture with the program, where does PSU go from here?

Polls in Pennsylvania show a pretty close to even split on the issue of renaming Penn State’s Beaver Stadium after Joe Paterno.

A Quinnipiac University survey found that 46 percent of those polled thought the school should rename Beaver Stadium, while 40 percent were opposed. But the margin of error is nearly 3 points among the 1,300 registered voters who were surveyed.

Penn St WR Who Punched Starting QB Not Making Bowl Trip

penn-st.-logo

The Penn State Nittany Lions will be without four players for its TicketCity Bowl game against Houston on New Year’s Day, the only one you’ve heard of is wide receiver Curtis Drake, who beat up starting QB Matt McGloin a week or so ago.

McGloin has thrown 1,571 yards, 8 TDs and 5 INTs this season, completing 54% of his passes, but throwing for a miniscule 6.8 yards per attempt. Drake has just 5 catches for 102 yards and a TD on the season. Coach Tom Bradley said Drake is missing the game, played in the historic Cotton Bowl in Dallas, for “personal reasons.” Whatever that means.

McGloin himself is still questionable after not practicing today.

Joe Paterno was released from the hospital yesterday as he continues his rehabilitation from his broken pelvis. He’s also continuing treatment for lung cancer.

According to a source who told ESPN, the treatments are “really taking a lot out of (him)….he has his good days and bad.”

Then there’s QB Matt McGloin who was beat up by wide receiver Curtis Drake on Saturday. They argued over miscues on the practice field, leading to Drake confronting McGloin at his locker and the brouhaha began.

Penn St. QB Beaten up by Wide Receiver Teammate

matt-mcgloin

Penn State starting QB Matt McGloin‘s Twitter account was just deleted. After he claimed it was hacked earlier. Why is this interesting?

Because rumors are that he got beat up tonight by his own teammate, WR Curtis Drake.

And unlike what happened in the Jerry Sandusky shower scene witnessed by Mike McQueary, police were called to the scene ASAP.

Which means this really must have been a bad scuffle.

Joe Paterno Did Minimum Required Legally; Fell WELL SHORT Morally

What’s going on in Penn State right now is a lot more than a college football scandal. It’s a lot more than a Penn State University scandal. It’s an evil, and complicity to evil so large in its scope that it transcends both football and education. The case of criminal pedophile Jerry Sandusky is a world-turning story that includes, but also goes well beyond the man with the most wins in college football history.

But it’s more than a college football story.

And it’s clear now that the legacy of Joe Paterno, one of the most iconic figures in the sport’s history, is ruined forever. And JoePa earned it, through the sin of omission, rather than the sin of commission.

Penn St. Duo Steps Down; AD, VP Allegedly Complicit to Child Sex Abuse Case

(Breaking: Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley and Vice President Gary Schultz will step down while they defend themselves on charges of perjury)

Very disturbing, scandalous and unhappy news out of Happy Valley today. The Penn State football team is on bye this week; but their program is making bigger headlines than on any given autumn Saturday.

Yesterday, it was announced that former Nittany Lions Defensive Coordinator Jerry Sandusky was indicted on charges that he sexually abused eight young men. He was arrested Saturday.

(BREAKING: Grand Jury Report released: What did Joe Paterno know? And when did he know it?)

Also, Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and Penn State vice president for finance and business Gary Schultz are expected to leave State College and go to the state capitol of Harrisburg on Monday. They are facing charges of perjury and failure to report under Pennsylvania’s child protective services law in connection with the investigation into the abuse allegations against Sandusky.

What Did Joe Paterno Know Regarding Penn State Child Sex Abuse Case?

When it comes to the cover-up of any crime, the question all legal professionals first seek answers to is “what did he know and when did he know it?”

As we posted earlier, former Nittany Lions Defensive Coordinator Jerry Sandusky was arrested on charges that he sexually abused eight young men.

Also, Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley and Penn State vice president for finance and business Gary Schultz are facing charges of perjury and failure to report under Pennsylvania’s child protective services law in connection with the investigation into the abuse allegations against Sandusky.

So when there are charges of this nature surrounding a high profile program like Penn State, the next question is what did the coach know and when did he know it? In college football, programs ARE their head coach. When that coach is Joe Paterno, the all-time leader in coaching wins, the information becomes even more sought after.

What you’ll see in the grand jury report will no doubt adversely affect the legend of JoePa.
