Hunting Man I never try to please/agree with everyone here, wouldn't be any fun, so why don't we just call it closed. No one wins in these type of discussions, you cannot change my thoughts on this and neither will I change yours. Probably makes the best sense of all the posts on the subject. I'm sure the new college season has much more to discuss????

Because you make an irrational argument, and the counter argument needs similar examples to show that irrational path.

True on both counts.

There's only one person who "knew" what Joe knew about and that information went to the grave with him. So don't assume that you knew he had to know. What Joe "knew" was that there was talk and previous incidents, all cleared by State College police, so that the football program seperated itself from Sandusky. Remember now that Joe was an old man, and had a 30-year friendship with Sandusky. Only today do we abandon our friends so casually. Back in Joe's day friendship meant something, an honorable quality that is no longer with us. What Joe knew whas that they had to distance themselves from Sandusky as much as possible.

Also recall from the trial that the lad that McQuery saw being "fondled" did not come forward as part of the lawsuit.

Secondly, stop throwing emotionally charged terms like "rape" into the discussion. Sandusky was never convicted of raping anybody. Read the charges. The young person that McQuery eye-witnessed was getting slapped on the butt by hands, not intimate sexual contact. Clearly inappropriate, but not rape. You're getting yourself charged into a tizzy with such emotional arguments that hold zero truth.

And you've never responded to the question of why go after Joe, exccept for the media sensation. Obama knows that American soldiers are dying every day in Afghanistan, does that make him solely and personally responsible for their deaths? Hell, you know it too, therefore YOU are personally responsible. The sole responsibility lies with the person who saw and could immediately stop an ongoing "assault" and that was Mike McQuery. And what did he do? He ran away. Everyone after that is just an intermediary, and while they have some guilt for "not doing enough", they hold no accountability because they weren't there, they didn't see, and they ultimately did what they were required to do: they informed someone who should have acted, the police.

Hunting Man You're forgetting the raped kids that Joe knew about. Also, I always held Joe to being one of college football all time great coaches so I'm not an anti Penn State basher. He knew there was a coverup, there's no denying it! Yes he should have done more, you and I would have because we know it would have been the right thing to do! He made a life's bad decision, we all make mistakes, however, our's probably didn't involve the knowledge of kids being raped. All of the people involved in the coverup are guilty. That's how I see it, doesn't make me right, but it's how I see it and that's good enough for me. I'm done with this as there are no other avenues to travel for me. All that are guilty should be tried in some manner! Joe went to his grave knowing the cat was out of the bag, may he rest in peace. I hope Penn State gets their house in order and comes back as a great college football program. Lets not forget the kids either, they must live a lifetime of horror.
