For those about to be offended, I apologize. No amount of charitable giving or football games won could ever erase the fact that numerous young, EXTREMELY vulnerable children could have been spared the horror of being raped. Are we really celebrating a man's life that chose to protect his football program rather than save the moral sanctity of numerous adolescents? If you choose to believe good 'ol JoePa just wasn't fully aware of the situation then you are the one misguided. Anyone who has ever been part of a football program knows there's no such thing as matters behind closed doors, ESPECIALLY pertaining to a situation such as this. I really don't mean to attack but the way the media and others portray this man as a saint with a "hiccup" makes me sick to my stomach.
If you choose to believe that his triumphs in the game of football, or money given to construct a building or two overshadow his apathy in a dire situation, then that is your prerogative, but this does not sit well with me.
