    How could they not know about an ass't football coach molesting young boys for 15 years? Head coach Paterno must have seen some warning signs. Did the university ignore it or were they afraid that exposing the coach as a predatory homosexual would open them up to criticism from well organized left wing groups?

    Of course they knew. One report had him caught in the act of raping one of the boys. Is Sandusky a democrat? That alone would explain a lot.

    Alum football first I guess. Gotta win to sell tickets. Can't fire a coach and risk losing when "the game" is on the line. Besides the players were probably on financial aid ane were losers anyway.

    ETA: sarcasm

    Paterno knew.

    They all knew and they did nothing.

    It's sooooooooooo fuggin' awful.

    I just can't comprehend how they could have been quiet about this. How they could continue their relationship with him.

    The guy who freakin' witnessed it is now a coach for the team.

    How can you sleep at night?

    How can you look that guy in the eye?

    The most outstanding NCO I ever worked with in the AF, a guy I would have introduced my daughter to (if I had one) ended up stealing weapons from the armory and selling them to the Japanese Mafia.

    The ones that are universally liked are the ones you should be most suspicious of.
