Forget Paterno

The Penn State scandal is getting even more and more attention as more information comes out. If you haven't heard yet, Joe Paterno was fired last night, but students/fans rallied in his support. Even with all this happening, I don't even care about Joe Paterno, because I had the displeasure of reading this: Sandusky Grand Jury Presentment. I warn you, these stories are bothersome and is not for everybody to read. Some of these stories are flat out disgusting and disturbing. You probably won't get through all of it, but I recommend taking a look at it.

After reading what Sandusky did, I haven't changed my view of Penn State. Not as a school or an even in an athletic standpoint.  I guess Joe Paterno can take some blame for not doing more, but still this doesn't concern the "legacy" of Paterno. More focus should be shifted twoards a horrible human being that victimized under-priveleged boys. The scandal has nothing to do with sports. So please stop talking about how Penn State's football team will be different without Paterno or how Paterno's legacy was changed. We should really be trying to help the victims and their families. Sorry it took so long to figure this out, but let us hope that justice will be served. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
