    Why the check out the forum discussion? It’s impossible to join your damn forum and therefore the discussion. As for Joe, I’m not sure what I think in regards to all of this Jerk Wrist reaction. He’s probably the least culpable of all the administration and deserves some credit for all he’s done for Penn St for 40 years in keeping their noses clean athletically speaking anyway. But strictly from a football standpoint Penn St amazingly is the only undefeated team left in Big 10 play and are helping Bama’s SOS. If this hurts their ability to win out it also hurts Bama’s chanches of getting to New Orleans Nov. 9th.

      Hmm. Thanks for mentioning it. That could explain why nobody uses it. I created that so people could start their own discussions, etc. Something you guys have mentioned wanting.

      Anyway, took it down until I can figure out what is up.

      Will try to relaunch it again so people can start their own discussions.

      “But strictly from a football standpoint Penn St amazingly is the only undefeated team left in Big 10 play and are helping Bama’s SOS. If this hurts their ability to win out it also hurts Bama’s chanches of getting to New Orleans Nov. 9th.”

      yeah, nine (and likely more) young boys were RAPED, not only on campus but in the athletic facilities, (and god only knows where else) because the men who witnessed it and the men whom it was reported to were thinking………..

      “strictly from a football standpoint”.

      the fact of the matter is Joe Paterno was the most powerful man on campus and the one most able to put an immediate stop to this perversion. his immediate “superior” was one of his former quarterbacks.

      who’s zoomin’ who here?

      “If this hurts their ability to win out it also hurts Bama’s chanches of getting to New Orleans Nov. 9th.”

      yeah, 8 and 9 and 10 year old boys were raped and e. g. here is worried about Alabama’s SOS.

      as if we needed another example to validate e. g.’s standing on this site as excrement king.

        Finebammer,
        I am not defending Sandusky here. If he did it then he needs to face some hard time with some criminals who will dish out the same to him.
        BUT;
        Sandusky was only arrested last week. He hasnt plead, he hasnt been convicted. Hell his fingerprints arent formally dried yet. He hasnt been to trial. NOTHING HAS BEEN PROVEN HERE. Dont you think thats a bit of a rush to judgement?
        PSU is sending a bad message and that message is. “If you want someone run out of town on a rollerskate, just say they molested a kid and the PSU board will fire everyone who is anyone.”
        Joe Pa is not guilty of breaking any law. He did not obstruct justice. He turned it over to someone else. Why? Probably because he didnt want to appear biased one way or the other. Think about it. If he is wrong then an innocent man’s name and reputation are ruined. On the other side of the issue kids might be getting molested. I mean fuck… if it was me that is the first thing I would do is turn that shit over to someone to investigate Thats what he did. And that (beleive it or not) is where his duty of care ends.
        So why the fuck not let Joe Pa walk out the door in his own way. Shit the guy practically built the stadium and the town for that matter. And another thing …..the old guy is 84 years old and has a good reputation, is well thought of in the college work and you probably could find 5 people on the planet who would have anything bad to say about him as a person that shit doesnt happen overnight or by accident. You have to work hard to have that kind of name and reputation.
        Nope this is Sandusky’s ride. They should have left the old man out of it.
        Bad stuff here.

        Finebamer,
        Remember it was Crimsonite that made those comments. He’s probably more worried about Alabama’s SOS because he doen’t think Sandusky did any thing wrong base on his upbringing. I know you’ve read some of his vulgar post here.

        To Crimsonite,
        Penn State was probably going to lose two or three of their next games anyway, so at least now you have excuses, which you seem to like based on all your comments since the LSU game.

    Living proof bammer trash at its finest. lol..penn st is total trash, from the top to the bottom including the student body. What a bunch of idiots. Old joe pa and his old lady need to be put in prison theirselves. What two old trashy people they are. Another reason why Im so glad Im an Auburn Tiger. Another thing, no telling what the bammer trash coaching staff including old saban does behind closed doors. You people are all idiots and two bricks shy of a load. Ill also say if anything even similar to this shit at penn st happened at my university, I would be done with Auburn for good and college football to boot. Any of this shit at penn st happen to any member of my dam family there would be shot gun ammo inside people skulls.

      Mandi,

      If you are for real, YOU ARE ONE SORRY HUMAN!

      As the story goes, Joe Paterno was told by a grad assistant, now a PSU assistant coach, about something the grad assitant had seen in the showers involving former PSU assistant Jerry Sandusky. Paterno reported the incident to his AD, who has now been charged with perjury. Is there something wrong with this picture?

      Paterno reported the incident and got canned, but what about the graduate assistant, now PSU assistant coach? Has he been dismissed because he did not report the incident? Am I missing something here?

      The whole affair is very sad and if Jerry Sandusky is guilty, he should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I really have a difficult time believing that Joe Paterno would not have reported this incident to the authorities had he believed it was as serious as we know now. The allegations toward Sandusky are larger than PSU and Joe Paterno, but I believe there has been a rush to judgement that will later be regretted by the PSU Board.

      I feel sorry for Joe Paterno and the way he was treated. I think he should have been allowed to finish the season rather than being dismissed at this point. What happens if later we find that Paterno was not given the full story and he did his duty by reporting it to the AD? The PSU Board cannot give him his job back and replay the final games of this season.

        Vol, That is 100% correct. Given the seriousness of the allegations, I beleive that people are allowing thier outrage to overcome there reasoning here.

    Man,
    Nothing like this would ever leak out of lee county. And if it did Auburn would just claim They “didnt know about it…. and therefore are not responsible in any way….”
    And another thing, half the damn women in Lee county were married before they were 15 any damn way.

    Mandi has some skeletons in her dusty little closet herself. Her comments tell us she had been touched in her secret no no spot when she was a child herself. Use said shotgun on yourself you piece of crap.

      Fat_Die your comments are more repulsive than Mandi’s.

    I’ve seen the water in lousiana too sucka, it isn’t much to brag about.You must share Mandi opinion to get so defensive over her. Don’t lose any sleep over our fine state , just stick hanging out in the swamps wrestling alligators and learning to read and write swamp baby.

      Just a fan

      Fat_Die you may can read, unlike Crimsonite, but you don’t comprehend any better. When I say your comments are more repulsive than Mandi’s, that means (that’s a clue to pay attention her Fat) Mandi’s comments were repulsive but yours were more so. Therefore I did not get defensive over her. Glad I could explain that to you, but who in your life explains everything else to you so that you can understand things.

      And beleive me I am not losing any sleep over your fine state at all.

    On Thursday morning, just hours after legendary head coach Joe Paterno and university president Graham Spanier were fired by the school’s board of trustees, Madden was asked on WEEI’s The Dennis and Callahan Show what he believes the next piece of news will be.
    What he said was twice as shocking as anything that’s been released thus far.
    “I can give you a rumor and I can give you something I think might happen,” Madden told John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. “I hear there’s a rumor that there will be a more shocking development from the Second Mile Foundation — and hold on to your stomachs, boys, this is gross, I will use the only language I can — that Jerry Sandusky and Second Mile were pimping out young boys to rich donors. That was being investigated by two prominent columnists even as I speak.”
    After the news spread, Madden later explained via Twitter why he went public with the rumors.
    “I normally abhor giving RUMORS credence,” Madden wrote. “But whole Sandusky scandal started out as a RUMOR. It gets deeper and more disgusting all the time. One of state’s top columnists investigating. That adds credence. I am NOT rumor’s original source. [Why does] Sandusky deserve benefit of doubt?”
    Madden also spoke more definitively on Dennis and Callahan to the cover-up efforts at the school and beyond that he expects will be made public soon.
    “The other thing I think that may eventually become uncovered, and I talked about this in my original article back in April, is that I think they’ll find out that Jerry Sandusky was told that he had to retire in exchange for a cover-up,” Madden said. “If you look at the timeline, that makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?
    “My opinion is when Sandusky quit, everybody knew — not just at Penn State,” Madden added. “I think it was a very poorly kept secret about college football in general, and that is why he never coached in college football again and retired at the relatively young age of 55. [That’s] young for a coach, certainly.”

    yeah, i want to see anyone defend paterno’s lack of appropriate action after we find out his longtime assistant was running a prostitution ring with young boys out of the Penn st. athletic dept.

    Young boys who were there because somebody had already screwed them.
