and you're looking at this with 20/20 hindsight. if joe paterno - the best-known man in the community - keeps pushing this (Lord knows how he'd do it, since all he had was a vague secondhand account), word would leak out that sandusky was being investigated for child molestation. and the guy's reputation would be ruined forever, regardless of whether he did anything wrong.
i think paterno could have followed up with the administrators he told originally, pushed harder with them, but anything that involved badgering police into an investigation is not a realistic or good expectation.
