There's no factual basis, but it's hard to argue that this wasn't a massive cover-up. I have a feeling when this is all said and done, Sandusky isn't going to be the only one in jail.

I've got to say that I'm impressed with the way that Penn State handled the game on Saturday. It was a disaster waiting to happen but it was defused and the seniors had their day.

You have no idea what he was told. The grand jury testimony was vague in how the information was passed along through the chain.

I am definitely in the camp that believes he knew enough, but it is based solely on intuition and yes, common sense. I just want to hear his side of the story.

Looks like Paterno's name has been taken off the Big Ten championship trophy.

Wow. You can't make this stuff up. At least I don't think you can.

I'm starting to buy in to the conspiracy stuff about Sandusky offering the kids to high-paying donors and what not. :-o

I heard it multiple times. I am still waiting to hear his lawyer in the background telling him to STFU.
