    Not really a surprise as Penn State has been on a 24/7 cycle since the awful news broke about the Sandusky scandal. People come to the defense of their university by opening up there wallets to try and make a difference. Plus there might be some guilt tied into those donations as well.

    Not just that, for a long time there, the PSU alumni were all CERTAIN that Joe had no knowledge of what was going on.

    Penn State report to be released Thursday. I fully expect Paterno to be thrown under the bus and then the bus to be backed up over him several times. Paterno is dead, Penn State will offer his legend up in sacrifice.

    Dead men don't talk so I am sure we will never know, which is what makes him the perfect scapegoat.

    I'm not sure scapegoat is the right term. Just based on what has come out so far the other three guys are probably going to jail. Paterno could and probably will come out looking much worse than he already does, but if that is based on a 3rd party investigation I'm not sure how that scapegoats him.

    Well, if the CNN report on the emails is true, he isn't going to be a scapegoat.

    Re: Penn State / Jerry Sandusky Pt. II

    Lets remember the investigation is being paid for by the Board of Trustees. The same Board of Trustees who fired Paterno without even questioning him about his involvement in this matter. The same board who most likely leaked the emails. Look I have no doubt that Paterno has to shoulder some blame here but ultimately what I am saying is what better way for PSU to get out from under this weight than to blame Paterno and his henchmen for all that went wrong.

    Yes the CNN emails, in which we will let you see the emails not all of them just the ones that make Paterno and the gang look really bad. It sets up so well for the Board of Trustees.

    Short of turning up a memo, written in his (Paterno's) handwriting on personalized letterhead and stamped by a notary public, saying, "Hey, Graham and Tim, I'm OK with Jerry raping little boys as long as it doesn't make the press," the Freeh report will likely leave a lot of Penn State minds unchanged.


    Hell, that probably isn't enough because it wouldn't have specified which Graham, Tim, and Jerry. Those are just first names ya know.



    The rest of us, however know better.

    So emails that actually show they knew about it, but it didn't go reported.... I don't need to see any other emails about it. None. There are no other possible emails that could make them look good.
