Today we hit the most pressing issue surrounding college football at the moment, and rightfully so, the Jerry Sandusky-Penn State child sex abuse scandal. If you haven't yet read the Grand Jury Presentment I recommend you do so as it will truly shed light on the incidents that occured and, most disturbingly, were allowed to continue to occur in Happy Valley. I'd also recommend checking out the The Daily Collegian, Penn State's school newspaper who has done an absolutely masterful job of playing the events on a timeline for easy digestion.
Joining me to discuss the issue is my Penn State "go to guy" Kevin McGuire. Kevin runs No 2 Minute Warning and he is very plugged in with the happenings at Penn State University. Not a huge write up folks; basically Kevin and I first outline the events, identify the key figures in the story, discuss where lies were told, the ball that dropped and how something to terribly tragic was allowed to transpire. We get into Timothy Curley the Athletic Director, Gary Schultz who oversaw Penn State's Police Department, Mike McQueary the GA who witnessed the abuse and of course we hit on where Joe Paterno fits into all of this.
The show will inform those of you not aware of the events and in the second half Kevin and I discuss the shortcomings that essentially amount to a pattern of enabling for, at least it seems, the sake of protecting the "Success with Honor" brand that Penn State has built.
