Joe Paterno is having a bad month. Not only has he been fired after 60+ years, but now PSU is taking down a 900-pound statue of JoePa that stands outside Beaver Stadium over Thanksgiving break. It’s being done to avoid riots. Hmmmmm.
In addition, the Big Ten will be removing JoePa’s name from the conference championship trophy.
Mr. McQueary’s statement that he notified the police about witnessing Jerry Sandusky sexually molesting a 10-year-old boy in the PSU showers has gotten the attention of local police. State College Police Chief Tom King is sayin’ that ain’t so, Joe Mike. There is no record on file that McQueary reported Sandusky to the State College popo.
The Pennsylvania State Police are not commenting if McQueary spoke with them because of the ongoing investigation into the 2002 incident. Guessing the answer is “no”.
Jerry Sandusky breaks his silence to proclaim his innocence but admits he had a lapse in judgement showering with kids (no duh Jerry). This revelation in light of the fact that two eyewitnesses claim they saw Sandusky having sex with young boys in 2000 and 2002.
There is an email supposedly floating around, penned by Mike McQueary, in which McQueary states he did not run away, he “stopped it” and “did the right thing”. So did Mike see “horseplay” and “towel snapping” as Jerry puts it OR did Mike see something else. I don’t think sodomy falls under horseplay.
One has to wonder when we will get to the truth in all of this. Right now it seems like a great deal of posturing with a heapin’ helpin’ of CYA thrown in for good measure.
