Found July 12, 2012 on
The Freeh Report was released on Thursday morning, and as expected, it was pretty ugly for some of the once-powerful members of the Penn State community. The results of the internal private investigation into the university's involvement surrounding the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse lay heavy blame on former head football coach Joe Paterno and others for not doing enough to stop Sandusky. In addition to Paterno, athletic director Tim Curley, former president Graham Spanier and vice president Gary Schultz were all mentioned together in the report for their roles. The report concluded that they did not do nearly enough...

Phil Knight Still Supports Child Rape Protector Joe Paterno; Name Removed From Child Care Facility

Nike said in 2011 that it wouldn’t remove Joe Paterno’s name from a child care facility on its Beaverton, Oregon campus because “Our relationship with Penn State remains unchanged,” a spokesperson said.

NBC 4 L.A. Cameras Catch Chicks Posing With Joe Paterno Statue This Morning

Going out on a limb and saying these chicks are incoming freshmen, are in State College for orientation, told mom to stop so they could get a photo with JoePa and then NBC 4 LA cameras caught them posing with a child rape protector. Maybe they were oblivious to why those satellite trucks were in front of the football stadium. You know, because after all, it is Penn State and big...

Fight on to victory evermore, but vacate Paterno's wins

"It's two different guys: There's a guy I knew for 40 years and did everything right; then a guy who did a dastardly thing." – Bobby Bowden As my colleague Kevin McGuire wrote on Thursday, "Joe Paterno died on January 22, 2012.
