Why didn’t Penn State just ask him to retire rather than fire him. His life was his family which Penn State was a major part of. Bless you Papa Joe

Is this for real this time?

The late news last night as well as first thing this morning, were that yesterday’s news that he had died were false.

Hard to feel sympathy for someone who knew that Sandusky was more than likely continuing to molest children, and chose not to stop it.

Remember before he was terminated, that Joe had announced he would retire after the season. He wanted to retire. He was fired instead. They wouldn’t let him go out on his own terms. I guess they wanted to make their political statement.

Ah, yes - protect him by asking him to retire rather than fire him. Protect the guy who didn’t have the stones to protect CHILDREN from a sexual predator.

End of an era. A huge loss to Penn State. He will go down a the legend he is. The witchhunt that he had to face this year is now over Joe. Rest in Peace.

“I guess they wanted to make their political statement.”

A statement like this?

Child molestation is detestable & intolerable. Anyone who turns a blind eye toward it is at least partly responsible.
