Joe Pa's carrer changed more lives for the better than any ripple effect felt from the Sandusky incident, period.

I just cannot judge a man's entire life on one mistake.....an action that he didn't take part in.  We all screw up and sometimes relationships with people can make us turn a blind eye to serious situations.  We don't even know the entire truth.  And for that, I will not sit here and badmouth the guy.  He did a lot of good in his life too

That's pretty much what Nick said.  I agree,  IDK why JP didn't do more, but the man devoted his entire life to college football and helped a lot of people.  He is dead now and his legacy is the entire work, not just the negative parts.

Tell that to the 10 year old boys that were raped because Joe protected the university.

I respect what the man did on the field, but his inaction along with the other staffers and administration is unforgiveable.  They knowingly allowed a child molestor to victimize children on campus under their watch.  There are things more important in life than football.

Joe Pa changed a lot of lives for the better outside of football.  Like I said, a life is complex.  If you want the Sandusky incident to define Joe Pa, that's your choice, just as anyone who doesn't believe his inaction defines his legacy has that choice.  Ultimately, he's in a place where none of our petty judgements matter.

Nope, ours don't.  Just God's.

The media is what killed him, not the scandal or cancer.

First off, no one knows the full truth. We all know how the media twist things to their own advantage.
Second, if it had NOT been blown so out of proportion by the media, the stress would have been half the weight.


I feel bad for the whole situation. I understand what we have been told happened but to think coach knew about the whole thing and did nothing about it goes against everything he spent his life fighting for.
