I'm not a big football fan beyond Penn State and the Steelers, and now I probably won't watch another college game again as I don't think the NCAA has been fair to Penn State.
It should be the Board of Trustees that needs an investigation. They are not looking out for the best for our Penn State. They are the ones who caused this big chaos. They fire a man by telephone and don't have the nerve to do it in person.
It was a terrible thing that happened to those young boys, and I'm sure they will never get over it, and now they have something else on their shoulders to bear - the death of Joe Paterno, and the end of a football program at one of the greatest universities in the US.
A new president of the university, by default, said they wouldn't take the statue of Joe down until Monday, July 23 and just like the trustees did behind closed doors, they started taking it down Sunday morning, July 24, before a lot of people knew about it.
How can these people look themselves in the mirror each day? Joe was not the one who committed these terrible crimes. It was Sandusky.
Why are the trustees so eager to tar and feather a man who did so much for Penn State and not go after the real people involved?
Why isn't anyone going after Mrs. Sandusky, who was reportedly home where some of these terrible things happened? She said she didn't know about it. I don't believe it.
It couldn't happen in a woman's home, and she not know about it.
I realize Sandusky was found guilty, but now he's hoping for a reprieve. That is more than Joe and the Paterno family will ever get.
Joe gave his whole life to Penn State, and I say the Board of Trustees are responsible for his death. He died of a broken heart.
I wish they would throw out every single trustee on the board and start new. Don't let them decide if they go or not. They don't deserve any kindness. I know they are supposed to be Penn State alums, but with alums like they are, Penn State doesn't need any enemies.
I will never be proud to say I was loyal to a university whose trustees were so blindsided they weren't thankful for the students and fans who made Penn State what it is.
Jerry Sandusky is the person responsible for everything that happened to the young boys. I am not a vindictive person, but I hope Sandusky never gets out of prison.
To the families of the boys and the Paterno family, my prayers are with you.
