Jerry Sandusky sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison by Judge John Cleland for child sexual abuse of 10 boys that rocked Penn State University and the Second Mile Charity. Sandusky, 68, was convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse by a jury in Bellefonte, PA three months prior.

Sandusky maintains his innocence and is set to appeal.

Sandusky stated from his jail cell last night in a recording,

They could take away my life, they could make me out as a monster, they could treat me as a monster, but they can’t take away my heart, In my heart, I know I did not do these alleged disgusting acts.”

NCAA announces Penn State University Football program sanctions, worse than the death penalty?  There is no red shirt year if a student athlete transfers and their grants and aid automatically reassigned to their new athlete program. If I was a parent, I would have my son leave that program very quickly and transfer.  The NCAA has left that door open very wide. The NCAA has acted vehemently in the horrific crimes against children that superiors ignored for the sake of a collegiate football program.

In my opinion, I believe they should disband the entire football program forever. Those children, now some adults lives will be forever altered. Why not a Collegiate Football program? It was because of what it fostered that lead to their physical emotional and spiritual harm.

But I do applaud the reality the NCAA has penalized the Penn State Football program. Greed has inflicted its nasty scar.

NCAA to announce sanctions against Penn State,  NCAA President Mark Emmert comments.

“This is completely different from … anything else we’ve dealt with,” Mr. Emmert told PBS. “This is as systemic a cultural problem as it is a football problem.”

“Never seen anything as egregious as [Penn State’s situation] in terms of just overall conduct and behavior inside a university.”

“There have been people who said this wasn’t a football scandal,” Emmert said. “Well, it was more than a football scandal, much more than a football scandal. It was that but much more. And we’ll have to figure out exactly what the right penalties are. I don’t know that past precedent makes particularly good sense in this case, because it’s really an unprecedented problem.”

Joe Paterno statue is taken down from its home at Beaver Stadium, State College, PA.  Before dawn, physical plant workers from the University,  construction vehicles and 30 police arrived shortly after dawn Sunday. They barricaded the street and sidewalks near the statue, erected a chain-link fence then concealing the statue with a blue tarp.  There were students who were camped and protesting the removal of the iconic remembrance. Penn State president Rodney Erickson issued this statement.

Coach Paterno’s statue has become a source of division and an obstacle to healing in our university and beyond,” Erickson said in the statement. “For that reason, I have decided that it is in the best interest of our university and public safety to remove the statue and store it in a secure location. I believe that, were it to remain, the statue will be a recurring wound to the multitude of individuals across the nation and beyond who have been the victims of child abuse.”

The statue, outside Beaver Stadium, nearly 7 feet tall and weighing more than 900 pounds, was built-in 2001. Paterno had over a 61-year coaching career and was inducted in the Hall of Fame.  Paterno died of cancer on Jan. 22, 2012 at age 85. The statue removal is in response to public pressure in the Jerry Sandusky child rape scandal at occurred in the Penn State Football locker rooms among other places.

Penn State did you get the message high in the sky, take the statue down or we will? An airplane towing a banner that reads “Take the statue down or we will” flew over the Penn State campus for several hours Tuesday, July 17, 2012. The banner is presumably referring to the Joe Paterno statue outside Beaver stadium which has become a point of controversy after the release of the Louis Freeh report last week.

I agreed with this message. Take the statue down in the middle of the night. While you are at it, erase Joe Paterno from that mural or I think it will get vandalized also.
