The winningest coach in college football history

(2 pm. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

Penn State’s self-inflicted disgrace is multiplying by the hour.  Anally raping 10-year olds in the locker room shower is horrifying beyond its mere criminal dimensions.  Sandusky deviously procured his child victims through his very own “charitable foundation for at-risk youths.”  Now we hear as yet unsubstantiated rumors that children may have been fetched and pimped out for some big money donors.   In any case, the cover-up by Paterno and scads and scads of other well-paid stewards of high stakes college football higher learning is likewise disturbing beyond any criminality that may obtain, and yet Paterno, who thanks to the long-delayed revelations is now the “winningest” coach in college football, is indignant at his treatment by the University.  

Almost unbelievably, Penn students rioted upon hearing news of Paterno’s firing by the Board of Trustees, thus issuing an unequivocal statement about their own deranged values as the nation’s next generation of leaders, intellectuals, role models, well-paid administrators.  The older, wiser, more politically astute Board of Trustees issued a not-so-carefully-worded statement indicating that they fired the university president Spanier and Paterno “in the best interests of the university.”  “In the best interests of university,” they repeated.  Yes, they emphasized their own afflicted motives as emotionless, conflicted agents eyeing the bottom line.  This is what it means to be a “winner,” Deacon.

This is our society in a nutshell, rotten through and through.  Based on these events, the entire football program at Penn State should be shut down indefinitely, as its particular incentives quite evidently disorder normal thinking and disrupt acceptable behavior across the entire swath of society it intersects.

“In the best interests of the university,” Penn State needs a l-o-o-o-ng time-out, while somebody draws some chalk on the board.

    While he was an graduate assistant, he witnessed Sandusky sodomizing a 10 yr. old boy, went home and told his father. The next day he told Paterno. WTF. Why in the name of common sense and outrage didn’t he call the police? Even after he spoke with his father, his father should have told him to call the police and damn his job at the time. They needed to fire McQueary, even if he did testify against Sandusky.

    What took any of them so long to report this? Did they think they had the same immunity that the Catholic Church seems to have?

    The college participates in a conference, the conference should take a stand and ban them from playing until they clean up the staff.

    I understand that the students who rioted last night will face criminal charges and may face expulsion from the college.

    When will there be a vigil for the victims of this heinous crime and cover-up.

    How can any parent feel comfortable sending there child to this institution? I wouldn’t.

    From CNN

    The Penn State assistant who told head coach Joe Paterno about Jerry Sandusky’s alleged child sex abuse in 2002 has been placed on administrative leave, the interim school president said.

    Mike McQueary’s leave is “indefinite,” said President Rodney Ericson.

    McQueary, a graduate assistant in 2002 and now the wide receivers coach, told a grand jury he had witnessed Sandusky, then the defensive coordinator, sexually assaulting a boy in a shower at the campus football complex.

    The scandal has led to the departure of four top university figures, including Paterno, amid scrutiny over their perceived failure to contact police.

    The whole bunch of these guys are disgusting, from coach Paterno, to the University Administration all the down to McQueary, for knowing what was going on, what Sandusky was up to, and not doing or even saying anything about it.  The fact that these people, including the Penn State and PA State Police,  all turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to this whole sordid situation, is sickening, and symptomatic of something seriously wrong in our society and throughout the world.
