Yeah, I don't think you have the full story.

When Sandusky retired, the university / athletic department would have been responsible for giving him access to university facilities, not Paterno. Thus the university pulled that access last week, not Paterno.

The AD knew at least as much about the '98 incident as Paterno (and perhaps more--that's one of many unanswered questions), so to suggest that Paterno is responsible for Sandusky still having access seems a bit off--unless you a link to back up that claim?

EDIT: That's not to say that I don't think Paterno deserves blame in this--he does. There's just a lot of misinformation out there, and my principle concern is that the BoT and university has too much to gain by making Paterno the main scapegoat.

IMO, Paterno should have been put on admin. leave pending an investigation--in practice, he never would have coached again, but firing him (and not the others involved) seems a cheap, transparent ploy to shift the blame away from the university administration.

I'm pretty sure Paterno has full control on all decisions like that and was at minimum present at the meetings which decided it. Everyone involved, except the president, owes their position to Paterno. The man has full power, otherwise he would have been forced to retire long ago.

Again--you're pretty sure based on what? Where do you read he was involved in any meeting about Sandusky's retirement package? From what I understand, the GJ presentment implies that Paterno had no further contact in the case after passing the information on to the AD. Do you have any evidence to the contrary?

I hate this 2011 Eagles team.
McCoy is the only bright spot.

The Andy Reid offensive scheme.

**** this team. I don't care about the Dream Team ********, because it was made by a third string, second rate QB who has absolutely no credibility, but **** every single person who simply cannot catch a football or throw a block or manage the clock or earn a ******* win.

Andy Reid is the worst person in the world at press conferences. Mike Richards was crucified for talking to the media but this guy gets a free pass for 10 ****ing years.
