Penn State Child Sexual Abuse Scandal
A fan base that has been criticized for putting football ahead of more important things went and put football ahead of more important things.
Breaking more than a year of silence, Sue Paterno is defending her late husband as a “moral, disciplined” man who never twisted the truth to avoid bad publicity.
Two Pennsylvania congressmen want the NCAA to restore football scholarships taken away from Penn State as part of sanctions for the child sex abuse scandal involving retired assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.
Just like so many out-of-touch, incredibly stupid fans out there, I really wish Joe Paterno was here to answer for himself right now.
With eight reported transfers thus far and more likely on the way, the bolts are already starting to pop out from Penn State’s football jalopy.
The Paterno Family officially filed an appeal with the NCAA Friday, objecting to the sanctions handed down to the Penn State football program last month.
The NCAA’s imposition of crippling sanctions against Penn State has provoked something of a backlash in Pennsylvania, where more than four in 10 adults say the governing body punished the school too severely over its handling of the Jerry Sandusky scandal, according to a new poll.
There was only one television network worth watching Monday morning as the NCAA handed down its historical sanctions on Penn State.
The following is a statement released by the Paterno family in response to the sanctions handed out by the NCAA against Penn State Monday morning.
Joe Paterno’s last win was a 35-10 victory over Wisconsin in State College Nov. 22, 1997. Who was Penn State’s quarterback in that game?
The NCAA handed out unprecedented sanctions against Penn State Monday morning. Here are the penalties as outlined by the NCAA in their own words.
The famed statue of Joe Paterno was taken down from outside the Penn State football stadium Sunday, eliminating a key piece of the iconography surrounding the once-sainted football coach.
The NCAA will announce “unprecedented” penalties against both the Penn State football team and the university.
Without a doubt, the Big Ten’s other schools and their fan bases – along with every college in the country – need to reassess their priorities in the wake of the Penn State disaster.
I want to go off here. I want to rant about guns and capital punishment and failed parenting and how something like this just makes my heart sad and my bowels livid, but I won’t.
Joe Paterno’s statue outside Beaver Stadium will be removed this weekend, according to two reports.
While most of the conversation right now is about how the NCAA should punish Penn State, there’s a different organization that has been laying low and has the power to take action: the Big Ten.
Penn State officials have the opportunity to speak for the victims of the Jerry Sandusky child-sex scandal. PSU must make the changes.
One of the few very true things they convey to potential teachers in college is that the most teachable moments come unexpectedly and cannot be planned for, and that oftentimes such moments arise from unfortunate circumstances.
The Paterno family continues to dispute the findings in the Freeh Report and is now vowing to review the report and uncover the truth.
