I am sick about this. I am not a Penn State Alumnus but I really looked up to Joe Pa.

I hate when my idols crash.

But I hate more to find out about human behavior that is deviant and more prevalent than I ever dreamed.

And I hate to think of the victims.

Per CNN he will retire at the end of the season. (Statement made today.)

He said he would retire at the end of the season. Did the Board of Trustees agree?

As an aside, the PSU president is reported to be gone by the end of the day:

I used to think very highly of Joe Pa but I read an article that he was lamentening about "hindsight", Sorry, Joe, tell the kids about it.

Joe had the most power on the PSU campus. It's one thing when the dictator wants to stay or is there going to be junta?

I tend to agree with you and the board may have a different agenda.

Stay tuned

Didn't take them long to toss Joe Pa under the bus.

"Retire at the end of the season" and not TODAY...geez, the Board is a joke. Apparently they just want that last win.

Well, we will be hearing about this for a long time when they all go through civil court.

Funny (funny strange, not funny ha ha) how Jo Pa was supposed to be the most powerful person in Happy Valley, but when he tried to have his weekly press conference yesterday, the university president had it cancelled. Guess Joe wasn't so powerful after all. They can't let him coach the team this weekend. He's toast.

It's a sad day for Penn state and especially for the victims of this tragedy. Joe Pa built a lifetime building a legacy and destroyed his reputation by making a stupid decision not to contact the police. After he saw that it was not being done by the university, he should have done it himself. That is the morally right thing to do. I have always liked and respected both Penn state and Joe Pa but now, shame on them. It makes me sick to think that they feel that their athletic program is more important than human decency and the law. I hope that the victims are able to recover from this tragedy.

Great post. Short and to the point.
