Nuking JoePa’s legacy

Bottom line:  Paterno lied until the end about what he knew.  Which means he chose to sit on his hands and cover his ass while a known pedophile abused kids on the Penn State campus.

“The evidence shows that Mr. Paterno was made aware of the 1998 investigation of Sandusky, followed it closely, but failed to take any action, even though Sandusky had been a key member of his coaching staff for almost 30 years and had an office just steps away from Mr. Paterno’s,” the report said. “At the very least, Mr. Paterno could have alerted the entire football staff in order to prevent Sandusky from bringing another child into the Lasch Building.”

But, hey, at least the all time coaching wins record is safe.

Picking up the Nick Fairley mantle

It’s not the two misdemeanor arrests in ten days that suggests Auburn defensive tackle commit Dee Liner is somebody to keep an eye on.  It’s the attitude.

According to a police report, Liner pulled up in a second car during the traffic stop and began “screaming, cursing and throwing objects” at the officer, allegedly yelling “Let my f—— mother go. You’re not going to tell me what to do.”

I predict plenty of Trooper Taylor chest bumps are in this kid’s future.
