Meanwhile, Christmas comes early in Happy Valley.

Pretty disgusting watching everyone fall all over themselves to excuse the State Penn actions (or lack of) regarding their sweeping the activities of a pedophile under the rug for years and allowing him continued access to facilities. I realize the entire university didn’t know and condone but that is true in other penalty situations. It was clear that the direct supervisor of this scumbag knew, and others in a position to take corrective action knew, and there is no other reason to think they covered this up except to protect the football program and their revered head coach. Sorry, this isn’t about the NCAA’s right to intervene, this is about holding bad behavior accountable, and somehow people are felling sorry for the people involved in the scandal. Wish they had gotten the death penalty and had to rebuild after 20 years of waiting.
Mac, I think the real death penalty State Penn avoided was in the potential for one of the enraged fathers of a victimized youngster emptying a magazine of .45 rounds into Sandusky’s center mass. I should add that I’m glad that didn’t happen, but I’d bet the thought crossed a mind or two.
True, I would have gotten it myself if it had been my son. Hard to believe the apologists among the State Penn fans though, they know better.
