No one fired as of EOD Tuesday. The two arraigned employees have "vacated" their posts (I guess they have not even resigned) but no one is fired. What is Penn State waiting for?
Joe Pa, his assistant coach, and the rest of the University leadership may have an explanation for why they decided to let their employee and friend continue to sexually assault little boys for 22 years, but there is no "Joe Pa's side of the story."
To paraphrase a movie line: Fire Them. Fire them all.
As a Big Ten man myself, I feel the longer they wait to fire them all, the more this stink sticks on all of Penn State, the conference, and all of big time college sports. The Big Ten Network is tip toeing around the story as if there are more compelling things to discuss relating to conference sports. Money and fear of offending (whom?) seem to be driving things instead of righteous indignation. Are Penn State, the Big Ten, the NCAA, and Nebraska all going to just withhold judgement and play football Saturday while the Penn State coaching staff acts like there may be another side to the story?
It is 7 PM in Happy Valley and Joe and his buddies still work for PSU. Shame on Penn State.
