Heads are rolling at Penn State. Joe Paterno is obviously the most marquee name, as his dismissal caused demonstrating and rioting. The Athletic Director, V.P. of Finance and University President is gone too. Yet Mike McQueary, the current wide receivers coach and then graduate assistant who actually witnessed one of the anal rapes is allowed to stay?
The ONLY third party witness to one of the child rapes, who didn’t even tell the police about it, instead he just told his dad, and then his occupational dad JoePa, is somehow still allowed to coach? Where’s the justice in that?
If you’re going to clean house at Penn State, and I agree that’s what needs to be done, why the hell is one of the major witnesses complicit to Jerry Sandusky’s sick pedophilia not being punished with the rest of them?
McQueary is a former record setting QB for the Nittany Lions. He was the BMOC, starting quarterback in State College in 1996-7. Despite that, the ginger man is relatively obscur...

Hundreds of Penn State students have taken to the streets to chant their support for ousted football coach Joe Paterno.

With the massive tidal wave that is the Jerry Sandusky child sex criminal investigation, the rumors that Joe Paterno was to soon be out are true. Paterno will retire at the end of the season, his 46th. Never would one have imagined that Paterno would go out like this--his reputation sullied as many believe he didn't do enough to bring the charges leveled against his former...
A person familiar with the decision says Penn State football coach Joe Paterno has decided to retire at the end of the season. The person says Paterno will announce his retirement later Wednesday.

Penn State suffered its first decommitment since the firing of Joe Paterno when ESPNU 150 offensive tackle Joey O'Connor of Windsor, Colo., backed away from his pledge Thursday evening.
The only thing people love more than watching a star claw his way to the top is watching him fall.
So add Joe Paterno's name to a far-from-complete list of athletes who plummeted from grace in recent years: Tiger Woods, Michael Vick, O.J. Simpson, Magic Johnson and Barry Bonds. Their sins were not the same, nor were their fates. But they were all banished to a kind of purgatory...
I didn't grow up a college football fan. I just think that if you are from WNY, your college roots are about as deep as a houseplant. I'm not trying to say we are stupid, but I don't run into too many UB or Buffalo State alumni who are all about their old stomping grounds. Of course, if you went to Syracuse or a major college, that's a different story.
For the first time in more than four decades, the Nittany Lions are headed into battle without Joe Paterno leading them.
David Baran, a Penn State graduate, is so disgusted with his alma mater that he staged a rally on Tuesday on the steps of Old Main to protest the Jerry Sandusky scandal and to showcase his distaste about the way Penn State handled the sex abuse charges. Baran pulled out his diploma, then a lighter, and set his degree ablaze for everyone to see. The one problem, only 10 supporters...
Ashton Kutcher attacked the Penn State Board of Trustees for firing Joe Paterno last night -- but there was one little problem, seems Ashton didn't know about Joe's misdeeds. Right after Paterno got the chop, Kutcher tweeted, "How do you fire Jo…
