    YES, Paterno should have done more. inquired more, followed up more, you name it. Paterno was NOT a part of the cover up according to all info that has been made public thus far.
    Just as Sandusky hurt many young men he also damaged Paterno. They should have just photoshopped a picture of Sandusky forcing anal sex onto Paterno as that is basically what he did.

    Paterno should have been able to retire with a huge celebration for one of the greatest college coaches. There should have been an event in which former players could have come up to the stage and gave stories of their time with the coach. But due to the selfish desire by Sandusky to play with little boys this never got to happen. Paterno died with tarnish.

    Will Sandusky ever apologize to the Paterno family of the boys themselves? Never, neither will Sandusky's wife who I feel should be charged as an accomplice.

    Instead Sandusky will be given 24 hour protection by the prison staff. What a sorry excuse for a human.

    I disagree, Paterno knew about this and stayed silent to avoid scandal. He is culpable in the crimes.

    You rarely hear of child molestors committing suicide. Sandusky will be content to live out his life sitting in a private cell having his meals delievered to him all at taxpayers expense.

    Justice ... yet not really ... how can justice ever be served on this evil man.

    Yes, my next question ... How could his wife not know?

    Anyone that knew or suspected this evil man was raping young boys is complicit in the evil crime.

    Disgusting ... and he lied until the end. I kept hoping he would be remorseful and and admit and take his sentence like a man and stop the charade.

    The man is a psychopath so by definition he is not capable of remorse.

    I totally agree. Some people will say that she is old and has suffered disgrace to her family but I say BS. Do the crime then do the time. Put her fat arse in prison. Time to shake up the cover crew.

    I agree.. because in his heart, he thinks he has done nothing wrong.

    This is one area I disagree, and do not indict JoePa.

    As 00timh explained, Paterno fulfilled his obligation - he reported the claim to Graham Spangler, president of PSU. Also, he never saw or heard a thing. It was Mike McQueary, an assistant coach, who came to JoePa and made a claim that he thought he heard something suspicious in the shower. Not only was he dealing with uncertain information, he was dealing with secondhand uncertain information.

    You can't just run around and accuse people of things without proof, and especially not this. This is a career-ender, even if the accusation is completely unfounded and totally ludicrous. You don't just "shake" a claim like this; once made public, your life as you know it is over.

    Situations need to be handled with a lot more tact and delicacy, and not just a "go find the nearest badge" mentality.

    Also, JoePa did everything he could to stop this within his own bounds. As stated by tim, he was not on staff anymore, and JoePa personally banned him from ever stepping on foot to Happy Valley.
