Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky indicted on felony charges of sex crimes against minors

How can you possibly know about any of this and just want to ignore it, all in the name of your college sports team?

I'm pretty sure that there will be heads rolling in the next few days. I can't imagine that the university would just let things sit there. To not penalize the players, I could see him finishing the season, but the house needs cleaning.

Yeah...he needs to suck the pipe and end it all...more importantly the victims don't need to be victimized again by being made to testify in court.

When the president of the university says the two accused of perjury have his "unconditional support", I don't think we should assume the university will do anything.

Yeah, Spanier is staking his reputation on this with these comments fully supporting guys inducted for felonies. If Curley and Schultz go down, hard to see him surviving.

Spanier is fucking terrible and I've thought so for about a decade now. The man was completely inept at getting any state funding and would generally just go to Harrisburg, bend over for Rendell and just take it. The old boys' network at that school is long overdue to be put out to pasture. Maybe then they can get a decent bball coach too. Hopefully Urban Meyer goes white knight and swoops in.

If the charges are true, I see no way that the AD can stay in his job, and that this would be Paterno's last season.
The current Penn State football program shouldn't see anything occur. The people involved should be criminally charged if convicted and rightfully so. I am sure this will all get sorted out.

Wait. So, Sandusky is a clergyman?

It would be a horrible way to end a great career, but he -- and everyone else on the football staff -- has to go. What a mess.

Nothing will happen to the players, they aren't the ones that were in the wrong. If the staff were canned effective immediately, that would punish the players. I think that anything that happens with the coaching staff, it will probably be effective at the end of the season. But it should be announced this week.

This by definition is the frickin good 'ol boys club, that at any cost will protect each other - particularly in the name of sports.
The lifetime of harm done to those boys is truly sad.

Given that he's currently free on bond, I wouldn't be surprised if Sandusky blew his brains out the next few days.

I can't believe Sandusky is free, actually. Prosecution asked for $500,000 bond and the district justice offered him $100,000 unsecured. I think this is indicative of the fact that prosecuting this case in Centre County will be very difficult. There are a large number of dyed-in-the-wool PSU lunatics there who think that PSU football and everyone associated with it walks on water.
Spanier and Schultz will be prosecuted in Harrisburg. I think the odds of conviction are probably higher for them, given the location of the trial.
