Fire Paterno? Are they gonna hire a new mascot to replace him? Certainly won't need to replace any of his coaching

I still can't get over how sickening this is. Like this is nightmare worthy. This has to be one of the sickest sports stories to ever come out.

Wtf is up with the sick ahole taping millen laughing at him crying?

What if someone you worked for and respected and mentored you for decades turned out to have such a huge moral failing? I'm sure most of these ex players are in shock at joepas inaction and immoral handling of sandusky's behavior.

Worldviews are being rocked here about something serious. Yet there are sick people laughing about it.

I don't see anything funny. Sandusky was not only the coach of hundreds, maybe thousands of Penn State players, he was trusted by the University to go on recruiting visits. He sat in the living rooms of 16 year old kids, looked their mothers in the eye, and told them that he could be trusted to help mold these kids into men.

I don't blame alumni for being distraught. I don't even want to think about how his former players feel.

I think the common thread here is JoePa's arrogance and need for control.

He thought that he could contain Sandusky.

He has refused to retire for the benefit of psu even though the game has passed him by long ago.

People who I feel bad for.

1.These 8 (probably more) victims and their families.
2. Penn State fans.

As an OSU fan I can sympathize with what it feels like to have your school's name suddenly tarnished, it doesn't feel good. However, at the end of the day it's just football, it can't begin to compare to how these victims and their families feel. Although I'm sure some will, I hope other fans don't use this as an opportunity to pile up on the Penn State fan base, it's not their fault they deserve better.

That said, I can't defend JoePa, McQueary or the top PSU brass. In a situation that screams for a moral and upright person to do the most, they did just enough to protect themselves and the university name, leaving vulnerable the most innocent, those who needed protection the most. Inexcusable, and shameful is all that comes to mind, but that falls short of trying to describe this injustice.

I just read the grand jury transcript...just really gross, disgusting and vile. PSU knew about Sandusky doing this as far back as the late 90's. Janitors, a grad assistant and one of the victim's mothers all either witnessed or had him admit to doing inappropriate vile things.

The university seemed to do its best just to brush it under the rug after the grad assistant witnessed sandusky in the act. Paterno knew about it - he has to go right along with the AD and any other figureheads that were around at the time.

Good luck getting through that transcript, you might need a barf bag.
Millen was clearly disgusted by this whole thing, and addressed it.
As for the whole issue of legal vs. moral, because legally Joe Pa is off the hook since he reported it, but the fact was that no one did anything beyond that and allowed it to continue is what makes this whole thing so disgusting.
Joe Pa was supposed to be one of the good guys in college football, and now with this happening, that changes a lot about him as a person.

Lots of you have said it pretty well already. There are at least a half dozen grown men who had the opportunity and ability to put an end to this and were too cowardly, self absorbed, callous and weak to do the right thing. They allowed a monster to continue to prey on the innocence and naïveté of children and that is inexcusable. The fact that this guy basically set up a farm system of kids will ensure a special section of hell is reserved for him - one to which the inmates of some prison will soon send him.

Personally, I don't see how anyone in a position of power at PSU can be retained. I'm not talking simply within the atheltics department. This whole thing is so depraved and nobody seemed to care enough about actual lives when the PSU reputation was on the line. Karma can be a *****, as that reputation will now take a far more substantial hit b/c the cover up is always worse than the crime.

I would never imagine I could say that when the crime involves children, but it is true. The cover up served to allow this worthless trash to continue his life as a predator.

The fact that Sandusky had emeritus status for the past decade+ and was on campus up until last week is really the final nail in the coffin.

Paterno was such an iconic figure not just in Happy Valley but in college football and now it is all tarnished because he could not do the right thing and make sure Sandusky was put away in 2002 after the grad assistant reported the incident to him.

Oh and cancelling the presser was the worst thing you could have done. It's just going to make this thing drag on and on. Paterno didn't even get a chance to talk and defend his reputation before getting the axe.

About the only thing that should be left after this should be the players. New president, new AD, new coaches. Who BTW, are 8-1 and undefeated in the Big Ten which sucks because all the talk will be about JoePa and this stuff. While these players are having a great season.

Apparently Sandusky would bring children to practice all the way up to 2007 and no one ever stopped it knowing what they knew.

I don't know if I'm still in denial or what but I'd be really angry at the board of trustees if they don't let Joe Paterno finish the season. Maybe I'm just being naive but I still feel that, while he should have done more to follow up on it, Joe did nothing wrong. I think he is guilty of trusting the people above him to do the right thing. From everything I can tell, Joe and Sandusky were not nearly as close as people are making them out to be. They were famous for going at each other in practices and it was Joe that forced him into retirement back in 1998. Joe only spoke for something like 30 seconds at his retirement dinner and I don't ever recall seeing them together paling around since then. People act like Paterno ran the university but since 2000 hit and he's started dealing with health issues and started getting hurt in practices, he's taken less and less of a role within the athletic department, focusing solely on spending time with recruits when they came to State College and coaching/spending time with family. He hasn't been a frequenter of campus since about 2005 honestly. Maybe I'm just not ready to allow my saint-like image of him to be completely brought down but I'm still of the mindset that Joe really didn't know a whole lot more about Sandusky even being around campus and such apart from that one incident. Is it not possible that Spanier and Curley are the ones that gave Sandusky access to the facilities and allowed him to continue to have an office as part of their cover-up? Isn't it also possible that McQ and JoePa didn't see Sandusky at practices because they were busy...you know...coaching? (Contrary to Smooth Criminal's idea that he's just a figurehead, ask any player from the last decade Joe still coaches them...hard.)

Like I said, maybe I'm just naive, but until I hear more from the man I hold so near and dear to my heart, I continue to support him. Roll up your pant legs, this is JoePa's House.

When I first heard about it, I thought so too. But with the way Joe Paterno is, he would have made it worst. He more than likely would have been snippy or angry with the reporters. But they should have had something. Spanier should have gone out there and answered questions with or without Paterno.

It gets worse and worse with everything I hear. No one did anything cause once he was off the staff it wasn't their problem anymore. Just sickening.

Joe is done at Penn State.
He's 84 and his judgement is being called into question. If anything, this proves the man is too old to be running anything, except his walker.

The fact that the powers that be didn't ban Sandusky in'98/'02 from campus forever is IMO one of the most damning aspects of this case.

If you have TWO allegations in four years about Sandusky sexually assaulting young boys, you don't embrace him into the PSU family.
The least you can do is tell the man to go home and get professional help.
Paterno should have called the police on his own.

It's over for Paterno at PSU, and for young football fans it's a shame this is what many will remember him for.
JoePa - the guy who provided cover for a voracious pedophile within the PSU family.

My problem with Joepa stems with knowing about the 1998 incident, then magically that 1999 bowl game a month later was Sandusky's last and he was told that he would not be replacing Paterno? Its so obvious that Paterno knew about the *** **** with little boys and told him that he'd never be head coach and had him step down as defensive coordinator. Its obvious that he knew. If he didn't, then it would have been like the Steelers forcing retirement on Dick Lebeau for being old. Sandusky would have continued coaching. Then he continued about his daily business without ever correcting him or helping any kids.

I don't think Joe's composure really matters. Who cares if he gets mad. The milk has spilled after eight years. People have a right to ask the difficult questions. PSU needs to stop worrying about covering their asses at this point and putting up some kind of positive image with this incident, because you can't. The best thing to do would be to talk about this. Or at least make a statement about the most obvious questions. And Joe Paterno deserves a chance to clear his name or whatever.
