Penn State sex scandal
The young man whose claims of abuse began the criminal investigation that put Jerry Sandusky in prison said he contemplated suicide because authorities took so long to prosecute the former Penn State assistant football coach.
“The real (Paterno) was tough, and he wasn’t particularly nice all the time,” Posnanski said. “His players hated him when they played for him, but so many admired him and believed that he changed their lives.”
If the past couple of days taught us anything, it was that Penn State football coach and campus deity Joe Paterno never did get it.
