Jaguars, Penn St LB Paul Posluszny: Sandusky’s Revered at PSU

As you know, Penn State is known as “Linebacker U.” At least it was prior to the child rape scandal which has engulfed the media world the past five days. Now Happy Valley is more known as “Creepy Valley.”

And when you read the quote below, it’ll get even creepier. Paul Posluszny of the Jacksonville Jaguars shared his thoughts with Jacksonville.com. According to another former Penn State linebacker, Dan Connor, Posluszny and Sandusky were pretty close.

All college football players walk around on campus as if they own the entire planet. Double that at Penn State; double it again if you’re a linebacker at Linebacker U. So you know Posluszny was BMOC in University Park, yet during his time there he saw Jerry Sandusky as someone who walks on water at PSU.- someone much higher above them. [Read more…]

Multiple outlets, including ESPN, are reporting that Penn State president Graham Spanier will be gone by the end of the day- either he’ll resign, or he’ll be forced out. The man now nicknamed “Cocker Spanier” has gone unseen and unheard during all this.

The on-campus rioting/demonstration last night conveyed that this has really gone on long enough.

Obviously Spanier has to go, there is a groundswell of grassroots support for his ouster.

More than 1,600 people in nearly every state created a popular campaign on Change.org calling on Penn St. University’s Board of Trustees to fire President Graham Spanier after he failed to notify the police about a 2002 incident of suspected child sexual abuse in the locker room of the university’s football team by retired defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.

On Tuesday, Mark Viera and Pete Thamel of the New York Times reported that Penn State University is planning the resignation of long-time Head Coach Joe Paterno. We learned today that it will happen at the end of the 2011 season. JoePa will indeed step down; but not until finishing the seaon.

Penn State had to make some heavy decisions these past 24 hours as the Jerry Sandusky scandal has snowballed into one of the biggest stories in college football history.

Penn State Pedophile Cover-Up: Time for PSU Football to Clean House!

Jerry Sandusky’s Book entitled “Touched,” Getting Deservedly Slammed on Amazon

In the wake of the Penn State sex scandal, the fact that a book called Touched, the story of Jerry Sandusky’s life in his own words, still sits on Amazon’s virtual bookshelf is both disturbing and horrid.

This disgusting coincidence is highlighted by many Amazon “book reviewers.” We’ll show some of the best best book reviews after the jump. Sandusky’s autobiography highlights his college football career and his involvement in children’s charities, including the founding of his charity, “Second Mile.”

Which we all know now he used to find his vulnerable boys to prey upon and sodomize (allegedly).

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.
