Finding out [Joe Paterno] might have covered up Sandusky’s abuse—and abuse of the most unforgivable kind—was like finding out that Santa Claus wasn’t real.
Penn State senior Kevin Cirilli, who grew up like many students—believing Joe Paterno was God.
That’s an email from the Penn State School of Law’s dean of admissions offering students a waived admissions fee. 
"No doubt you have seen recent headlines regarding Penn State University," she writes prospective students. "Penn State’s new president is dedicated to restoring the trust of all people Penn State serves and to a renewed focus on Penn State’s status as one of the world’s preeminent research universities."
And then: “To make it easier for you to apply, we have waived your application fee.” The dean denies the email’s timing had anything to do with, y’know, all that ugly stuff.

Our solicitation and fee waiver reflect our standard practice in attempting to recruit applicants within a certain range of LSAT scores. The solicitation is timed to arrive shortly after potential applicants receive the results of the October administration of the LSAT. Because this standard timing practice occurred this year in such close proximity to the recent allegations regarding some Penn State personnel, we thought it best to include reference to the publicity and a statement reflecting our law school’s reaction.

And what do the students think? “Hahahaha Penn State just sent me a fee waiver to apply to their law school,” one recipient wrote of the letter, adding a thinly veiled hashtag for the school as her answer: “#nothappening.”

Thanks to Amendola’s idiocy, we actually could see the 67-year-old Sandusky. We could feel this alleged sexual predator, just like he apparently wooed his child victims with soft talk, attempting to do the same with us in proclaiming his innocence of butt-f—-ing, getting blow jobs, c—- groping, and other depraved acts on eight different minor victims over a 15-year span.
Buzz Bissinger, again pulling no punches, on accused child rapist Jerry Sandusky’s odd NBC interview—and the lawyer (Amendola) who made it happen.
We need to stop the daintiness and describe the alleged offenses for what they truly are in the vernacular to somehow try to capture the monstrousness. Not anal intercourse or oral sex, which sounds clinical, but butt-f—-ing and blow jobs and cock-grabbing and pants-groping and other assorted acts that the 67-year-old Sandusky allegedly inflicted on eight minor victims over a 15-year span, according to the 23-page grand-jury report, and resulted in 40 counts of serial sex abuse of minors.
That’s Buzz Bissinger on the Penn State sex scandal.
Joe Paterno’s tenure as coach of the Penn State football team will soon be over, perhaps within days or weeks, in the wake of a sex-abuse scandal that has implicated university officials, according to two people briefed on conversations among the university’s top officials.
A bombshell (in the world of college sports) from the New York Times.
