Did you see this? Joe Paterno July 4 cloud
Big Ten Network ^ | 7-6-13 | Brent Yarina

Posted on 07/06/2013 5:49:40 AM PDT by FlJoePa

Before the annual July 4 fireworks Thursday in Happy Valley, an eerily familiar looking cloud emerged. Like, a cloud that resembled the school’s late football coach Joe Paterno. Seriously. Check out the picture sent to Paterno’s son, Jay, in this post.

Draw your own conclusions. Looks to me like he's after the corrupt b.o.t., corbett, and a dishonest media. Just my opinion of course.

That’s not a Paterno cloud. If it was, it would be looking the other way...

What’s next, Sandusky on a piece of toast? Maybe you can auction it off on eBay or something. I’m sure some blinkered true believer would buy it.

No, that would be now governor (then AG) corbett, CYS, DPW, Second Mile, Central Mt. HS, etc.

I hope you don’t ever get YOUR 61 year career judged on the actions of an ex-employee. That might suck.

What sense does that make? JS was vetted by every conceivable agency - both locally and statewide - to adopt 6 children and foster dozens of others.

What did Joe Paterno have to do with any of that?

Some of the ignorance displayed here regarding the actual facts of this scandal sometimes makes me wonder if I landed at DU by mistake.

He’s still watching over the area, on the lookout for anything at all that might hurt ‘the program’. Why as a cloud, you ask? So when he finds something that might hurt ‘the program’ he can eliminate as much daylight as possible and keep it in the dark.

So, nothing’s really changed.

If Paterno had spoken up, the bad publicity might have hurt ‘the program’ and that was to be squelched at all costs. NOTHING at Penn State was more importand than ‘the program’. We saw where Mr. Paterno’s priorities were. His values had a depth of field of exactly 100 yards.

Penn State University was nothing more than life support for a football team.

“the program” is a model - even used by the ncaa as a model - for insisting on academic excellence. Not sure what you mean here. Just more blathering on like the rest of them.

Ziegler is getting the truth out. He’s releasing an online book either today or tomorrow that will have new facts.

You can go sit with Louis Freeh and Lanny Davis (who protected a dishonest b.o.t. for money), I’ll take the Paternos, Ziegler, Blehar, Clemente, Thornburgh, etc.

I like my chances.

You miss the point. “The program” isn’t the problem. Never said it was. The problem was that nothing in central Pennsylvania was more important than “the program”. The football team ran that school. Paterno himself intimidated school officials over threatened discipline of players, lest they miss a game or bring bad press to “the program”, demanding that only HE be able to decide how to punish “his players”. OH, you mean college students that had to go through the normal discipline process? NO, JOE PATERNO’S FOOTBALL PLAYERS. Never, ever to be confused with Penn State college students. And therein lies the entire problem.

Football needs to be entirely ancillary to the process of education. At Penn State, the learning institution was there to serve the football program. It’s the same story at Notre Dame as well. That program killed an employe an they only had to pay a 40 thousand dollar fine and the case was over and done with.

This story was originally posted in 2007 (before any of you even knew who jerry sandusky was) and describes in detail all you need to know about vicky triponey. Triponey's quotes and interviews (for money) is what you are basing your assertions on. She is a proven liar. She also had a very close relationship w/ mark emmert when they both were at UConn (who graduates a basketball player every decade or so). Go figure.

Read this and tell me you believe vicky triponey

What was he supposed to “speak up” about? That js hung around a bunch of disadvantaged boys? Everyone in town knew that, and praised him for it. The second mile was immensely popular - and powerful - within the state.

Did you know that louis freeh sat on the board of mbna bank - who was the largest single contributor to the second mile? Not Joe Paterno, louis freakin’ freeh.

What exactly did Joe Paterno do that was wrong, in your mind? I’m not understanding here.

Yeah, you're right, he never knew nuttin, couldn't have known nuttin, he was just a great, great man, and a great, great football coach. When you measure that fact against allowing the ruination of multiple young boys, you should always side with the great football coach........

When someone reported what they saw, Paterno should have dialed 9-1-1. Hedidn’t. He told his boss, who like Mr. Paterno, couldn’t see past the end of the football field.

Yes there would have been bad publicity. But then he would have done everything he could have. Saint Joe himself said, after the worst pad press of all—far worse than anything that would have happened had he called thecops initially, that he wished he’d done more.

Again, the program wasn’t the problem. The program being more the most important thing in the region was. Paterno himself put “the program” before everything else, and there are some things that are just more important. Twisted values are what blew this up. Sandusky wasn’t their fault. Their unwillingness to break cover about him was. And it’s that twisted value that brought it all down.

It’s clear that you are a big fan of Paterno’s. Paterno had a great program, no question. But your refusal to accept that their values put “the program” above anything else is clouding reality for you. Paterno screwed by by putting “the program” before everything else and it cost him dearly. It’s a cautionary tale that most football boosters will never understand, and they won’t understand it for the exact same reason Paterno left in utter shame.

What did Mike McQueary tell Joe Paterno? MM has become an unreliable witness in that his story has changed multiple times. We know he watered it down. We also know he saw no rape - his own words under oath.

Why would Joe Paterno call 911? Over a sketchy second-hand, watered down story? That’s a good way to get the University sued if nothing comes from the complaint.

MM the night before discussed what he saw with Dr. Dranov and his Father - BOTH mandatory reporters. Dranov asked him 3 times if there was anything sexual and MM repeatedly said NO. They did nothing but told MM to go see Joe in the morning.

Joe put MM in touch with Curley and Schultz, who was in charge of the PSU Police Department. What did MM tell them? Who knows, again MM is an unreliable witness.

Don’t you think it’s odd that JS was put in jail in 6 months and Curley and Schultz’s trials are going on 2 years and haven’t even reached prelims yet?

I appreciate your civility with regards to this, but you should do some more reading if you really want to know the truth. Blehar and Ziegler would be good places to start.
