I cried after that game

From Marc Weiszer:

Paterno won his first national title on Jan. 1, 1983 against Dooley’s Georgia team, 27-23. The Nittany Lions held Georgia to 160 rushing yards to deny the Bulldogs of the title. Herschel Walker had 103 rushing yards on 28 carries.

Paterno’s defensive coordinator then was Jerry Sandusky.

“He was a very good coach, a very well respected football coach,” Dooley said.

Sandusky was indicted on charges of sexually abusing eight boys over 15 years.

And I feel like crying now after reading this at Get the Picture.

On Monday law enforcement officials said that Paterno had met his legal obligation in alerting his superiors at the university when he learned of the 2002 allegation against Sandusky. But they suggested he might well have failed a moral test for what to do when confronted with such a disturbing allegation involving a child not even in his teens. No one at the university alerted the police or pursued the matter to determine the well-being of the child involved. The identity of that child remains unknown, according to the Attorney General.

  1. What a damn tragedy, that a wonderful man who has given so much to the sport, that instead of with a banquet and a parade, he will have to just go quietly, maybe alone, out the back door..
