    #1 - That is a clear violation of the rules, while Paterno failed as a human being, he wasn't violating NCAA rules.

    #2 - Vacating wins is stupid in the vast majority of circumstances. The games happened. All it does is add asteriks next to records. Those games happened whether or not they want them to. A flawed human being holds the record for most wins. It happens. The wins existing or not existing isn't going to change what happened, nor is it going to effect how people remember what happened.

    Couldn't find the main thread but new info ind Joe Pa knew as early as 1976 that Sandusky was raping kids and he knew it was happening on campus.

    Slime ball. I hope he gets erased from the university records. I don't care how many young men you mentor coaching! If you stand and just watch one kid helplessly become a victim to a monster you deserve zero credit for anything.

    So in the 70s and 80s he had reports from both coaches AND victims and took no action.

    Should have gotten the death penalty.

    Paterno should be completely erased from NCAA history.

    And now it's released.
    _____

    Unsealed Court Documents: Sandusky Abuse Allegation Was Reported To Joe Paterno In 1976

    A newly unsealed report from a risk-management expert found six different instances where sexual abuse allegations against former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky were either witnessed by other coaches or reported to university officials, including a 1976 allegation where one alleged victim made a report directly to head coach Joe Paterno.

    Everybody who wasn't a Happy Valley bootlicker knew this already, but I guess it's good it's all out in the open now.

    People had the nerve to compare Baylor's situation to this. One victim was raped by Sandusky like 80 freakin times. Just one

    On the contrary, you could have given Art Briles another 20 years and who knows what would have happened "around him", just like at every other school he's coached since Stephenville in the late 80's.

    PENN STATE FOOTBALLACCUSED OF VIOLENT SEXUAL HAZING'I'm Going To Sandusky You'

    A former Penn State football player is suing the University -- claiming star players violently hazed younger players ... and made sexual threats invoking noted child rapist Jerry Sandusky. The man behind the suit is Isaiah Humphries -- a defensive back who says he accepted a full scholarship to Penn State beginning in 2018.

    But, Humphries says life as a Nittany Lion was hell -- with several upperclassmen players including Damion Barber, Micah Parsons, Yetur Gross-Matos and Jesse Luketa leading a campaign of hazing against the new players. FYI, Micah Parsons is a star player -- the outside linebacker was Defensive MVP of the 2019 Cotton Bowl. Gross-Matos was an All-BIG 10 defensive end in '18 and '19.

    According to Humphries' lawsuit, the upper classmen intended to make the new guys "their bitch" from the get-go ... telling them, "this is a prison." He claims the upperclassmen also made threats against the new guys -- saying things like, "I am going to f*ck you" and "I am going to Sandusky you ... This is Jerry."

    The alleged Sandusky quotes obviously refer to the disgraced Penn State football coach who was convicted of sexually assaulting many young boys at the school's athletic facility.

    The allegations get much worse from here. Here's a list from the lawsuit ...

    Upperclassmen wrestle lower classmen to the ground and "place [his] genitals on the face of the lower classmen."
    An upperclassman would hold down a lower classman and "present his penis close to the face of the lower classman and stroke his genitalia simulating the action of ejaculation." Humphries claims an upperclassman would put his penis on the buttocks of the lower classmen and stroke and again simulate masturbation ... sometimes while the victim was naked in the locker room shower. Upperclassmen would grab lower classmen by the genitals

    Humphries claims he and his father reported the hazing to members of the Penn State coaching staff -- including head coach James Franklin -- but nothing was done by the team specifically.

    However, Humphries says the Penn State Univ. Office of Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Response launched its own investigation after receiving an anonymous complaint and ultimately found that Damion Barber violated school rules by hazing players.

    Barber was suspended for the 1st game of the 2019 football season for "violation of team rules." The team never publicly specified why Barber was suspended.

    Ultimately, Humphries says he had enough and transferred out of Penn State to the Univ. of California, where he currently plays for the Golden Bears.

    There's more ... Humphries claims he was threatened by Jesse Luketa -- that if Humphries ever visited "his city" he would make certain he was "gunned down" upon arrival.

    Humphries is suing Penn State, James Franklin and Damion Barber for negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress. He's also suing Barber individually for assault and battery.

    We reached out to Penn State for comment -- so far, no word back.

    I'm guessing hazing (even to the level of sexual assault) in sports, particularly football, is a lot more common than we realize.

    Yeah, but with a beautiful woman on campus, you can't necessarily just grab her, rub your twig 'n' berries all over her face in public, "simulate" an orgasm, and tell her "I'm gonna Sandusky you, bitch," because you might not actually get away with it. If you're really into sexual bullying and assault, it's a lot safer to do it to your teammates, because apparently no one gives a **** about them.
