Did You Ever Wonder About Joe Paterno?

Tell the truth now....Didn't you ever wonder how in the fike Joe Paterno has managed to keep his job as the head coach of Penn State, when the team hasn't really been great for going on a decade now, and hasn't been a true national championship contender since before the turn of the millennium. Oh, and while the guy has slowly marched on to what is now 85 years old? When the guy can hardly move anymore, when he hasn't really been able to speak even for a decade? When you know nobody on that team can understand what he is even saying? When he has basically been suffering from senility for the past several years? The guy is 85 years old man, and his team has totally dropped off the national radar from what it once was when Paterno was a younger man (in his mid seventies)?

Well, now we know. It's going to come out that Paterno has been able to keep his job because he knows about this incredibly disgusting business with longtime assistant coach Jerry Sandusky and his penchant for, you know, butt-fucking 10-year-old boys against their will in the Penn State locker room. Jo Pa might not even have had to have affirmatively threatened to blackmail the Penn State Athletic Director -- although I bet you he did, when the school tried to get rid of him four or five years ago -- but that doesn't matter. The implicit threat has always been there, ever since Joe Pa was first alerted to his assistant coach's dalliances with underage penises back in 1998/1999 timeframe. Once the administration (and Joe Pa) chose to do nothing and not even go public with the allegations, Paterno's career was set in stone at Penn State, for as long as he wanted to stay.

Penn State, I hope you got what you wanted. Some of these people are going to go to jail for a loooong time. Probably not Joe Pa -- probably unfairly -- but as I guy with young kids, I have precisely zero sympathy for anyone guilty of covering up this kind of sordid criminal behavior. And if Joe Paterno is not forced to resign over this whole mess, then Penn State will probably never recover anything close to the glory it once had as a proud institution of higher learning.

I do agree with you, but did you see how students are protesting Paterno's resignation?

Stupid kids. If my children were at Penn State right now, I would make sure they know how awful what Paterno did was in turning a blind eye to all this for more than a decade and continuing to let this guy hang around the school and around the locker room (where he was observed raping 10 year old boys in the past) for all this time.

IMO anyone protesting the firing or supporting Paterno is just showing their unbelievable naivete (and btw I believe he was fired, not resigned). $100 says that not a single one of those protesting kids actually read the 23-page indictment from the grand jury that came out this week. Cuz trust me, if they did, they would not be showing their face in support of Paterno or anyone associated with the school right now.
