World News #8 – Legacy (Paterno)
“Late Penn State coach Joe Paterno’s wins will be restored, after it was announced Friday that the NCAA and Penn State have reached a settlement to reverse some of the punishment from the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Many Penn State fans were overjoyed with the news, as Paterno will once again become the winningest coach in major college football history.”
– USA Today Sports, ESPN’s Keith Olbermann eviscerates Penn State.
“In other words, their lawsuit had nothing to do with the boys who were raped or abused by Sandusky. It had nothing to do with the fact that head football coach Joe Paterno, who died in 2012, and others at the school had been alerted to this abuse as early as 1998 and did very little to make sure it stopped. Nope, Corman and others wanted redemption for Penn State, based on a loophole over the authority of the NCAA to punish the football program.
The NCAA caved, ruling last week to restore Penn State’s 112 wins wiped out during the Sandusky scandal, including the 111 wins erased from the record of head football coach Joe Paterno — all the victories after the first time police were called by a mother reporting that Sandusky had showered with her 10-year-old son on the Penn State campus back in 1998.”
– CNN, Penn State still doesn’t get it.
