I don’t believe that anything major went on that concerned the PSU football program in 1999 without Paterno’s consent. I could be wrong, but it seems to me that he was the dominant figure in that program.
Or was it that kiddie raping wasn't something major?
Does it occur to you that PSU's pervert friendly president Graham Spanier was the dominant figure at PSU even if you had never heard of him until this scandal??? That Spanier was even more powerful at Penn State generally than was Joe Paterno?
Again, read the Franklin County Coverup for the M. O. of those sexually exploiting lttle kids. Available at a reasonable price at Amazon.
