Grandpa Joe, say it ain’t so! Beloved Penn State football coach Joe Paterno is in trouble this week after it’s been revealed that he and the Penn State athletic board likely covered up for defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who is alleged to have molested eight young boys over the last fifteen years.
There’s now “eroding support” at Penn State for the long time coach after this was revealed, but he still enjoys massive support from the students, who rallied outside his house. That quote above is more or less what he had to say about the issue, but I think he should be a little more forceful about the wrongdoing, and admit to his part in covering it up.
What will happen next? It’s anyone’s guess, but this is a scandal of Catholic proportions, and I have to imagine a lot of people are getting fired and/or going to jail, Grandpa Joe Paterno possibly included.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
