What Is The Deal With Joe Pa and Penn State?

with one comment


Update: So this case gets more interesting. In addition to Joe being the fall guy, a District Attorney has been missing since 2005. Now he could have been abducted by UFO’s. But they usually return. Smells like a professional hit since he was getting close to uncovering a child sex ring that was being operated by the Board of Trustees. They are a very powerful group in state and national politics. They serve as a middle man between Jerry Sandusky’s organization and donors. The question I have is will the BOT ever be investigated? I doubt it since just about anybody can be bought. It will be up to the alumni, faculty, and students to put pressure on them to either resign or be indicted or both.

By now, everyone has heard about the allegations against Joe Paterno and Jerry Sandusky. This headline should be titled “Board of Trustees planned scandal to ouster Paterno”. This is where the real power in college athletics is. Whoever holds sway with the BOT and Athletic Department will usually get what they want. The fact of the matter is this: Like with Bobby Bowden, Paterno is getting old and he has been there too long. PSU hasn’t been nationally relevant in football since the late 1990’s. If these allegations occurred twelve years ago, why weren’t charges brought then? Timing is everything. Merely accusing someone of something is enough. This will give the powers that be an out to move in a new coach and thus generate excitement amongst the alumni, students and national media. I’m interested in knowing how many people in the DA’s office are also PSU alumni.

The media in general isn’t exactly run by the most ethical and honest people. It is one reason why I am not in journalism anymore and that was just for a year or so (newspaper reporter). Anything is done to generate headlines. Headlines brings in viewers and that makes advertisers happy. It also explains the jockeying for position in the conference realignment talks. Decency, honor, loyalty. Nice catchphrases. But in the end, it is all about winning.

So Joe, don’t let this cause you to be bitter. You have earned your way and you ought to ride off into the sunset. Let those who accuse you stand before a higher authority someday.

  1. This is an absolutely gross case. No room on the planet for these type of people.
