(WSCR) The wounds left by the alleged actions of former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky may never fully heal –both on and off the field.
Sandusky, who is charged with more than 40 accounts of child sex abuse, may have permanently set back the Penn State football program in addition to emotionally scarring the lives of what is believed to be more than eight young boys.
“It used to be when we would talk about college sports scandals, it’d be the free tattoos story you were getting from Ohio State and Jim Tressel or the Reggie Bush stuff. This is on a whole different level,” Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports said. “I’ve seen people say that it’ll be a long time before Penn State will be the same — I’m not sure Penn State will ever be the same again.”

For Feldman, the only possible solution moving forward for the Nittany Lions is to completely remake the entire program.
“I imagine they’ll have to clean house. Every person connected to Penn State football will be gone.”
