LostLettermen has this ABC's "Good Morning America" interview with child rapist Jerry Sandusky who will neither confirm nor deny he rapes boys in the Penn State locker room. What a swell guy too! If you are a Penn State supporter you have to love the fact Sandusky is smiling while sporting his Nittany Lion attire even though he has been banned from ever stepping foot on their campus.
If you haven't already go read the 23 page report from the Attorney General on what exactly Sandusky did and check it out before you want my opinion. But please read it after you have had your lunch because it is that disgusting.
There is nothing more morally reprehensible than a child getting raped. Sandusky apparently has had 8 victims come forward when there are probably dozens more. He founds ways to use his power as a defensive coordinator for Penn State under Joe Paterno to get access to "troubled" boys by founding a children's charity called Second Mile. He would then get the boys to come to his house and rape them. He would also rape them on campus in the Penn State locker room while taking showers with them. A graduate assistant who is now the quarterback coach for Penn State witnessed Sandusky sodomizing a young boy in the shower in 2002. Obviously distraught he notified his Dad and then Paterno the next day. Neither of these three men went to the police.
Again Paterno, the graduate assistant and the father of the graduate assistant all knew about Sandusky screwing a young boy in the anus in the Penn State showers with the graduate assistant witnessing it himself and yet no one thought to go to the police. That in itself is fucking deplorable. Paterno senile old ass instead notified athletic director Tim Curley (since fired) and Gary Schultz, the university's senior vice president for finance and business. None of them ever contacted the police to report the incident.
A janitor witnessed Sandusky pinning a boy against the shower stall and giving oral sex. Still no one notified police. In order for Penn State to move forward from this horrifying tale it needs to clean house. The President of the University is already voicing his support for Curley, Schultz and Paterno. He needs to be fired too.
Obviously what Sandusky did as a sexual predator is the worse of the crimes but the fact that none of these "authority" figures at Penn State who found out yet did nothing to report it to the police are equally pieces of shit in my book. JoePa should never coach a game again. He's already hiding behind his lawyer. Same with the others.
Fuck them. They should all be in the State Penn and not Happy Valley. If you are a Penn State fan I feel for you today. There is no way I could in good conscious ever support the university or wear clothing showing my support after reading about all of these men who knew of children getting raped by one of their own yet did nothing to stop it.

Before I dive into the whole "Penn State needs to fire everybody who knew about Jerry Sandusky and did nothing to report it" story I figured I would talk about something a little more upbeat in college football: coaches getting canned. Or as the headline says itself "Ole Miss busts a Nutt."
Ole Miss currently has a 12 game SEC losing streak. It's their worst streak in their horrible history. And now head coach Houston Nutt will be taking the fall. Ole Miss has a 3pm press conference scheduled today when they will announce they are busting a Nutt for shitty coaching.
Things started off well for Nutt in Oxford after leaving Arkansas. He led the Rebels to back-to-back 9 win seasons which ended in Cotton Bowl victories. But the last two seasons have been a disaster. Ole Miss now gets thrown around by teams like Vandy and in this current college football landscape where fans and alumni expect not only instant results but sustained success Nutt is clearly not holding up his end of the bargain.
So now the question is who will be the new coach? I'm sure the usual Urban Meyer, Jon Gruden, and others BS reports will come out. Ole Miss is not a premiere job. It never has been. Which probably means they will be looking to get a hot assistant like Alabama's Kirby Smart or Georgia's Todd Grantham who are familiar with the conference. I hear Joe Paterno will be available.

At least he didn't shit his pants. Or did he?

All you have to do is look into Herbie's eyes at the 10 second mark. Bam. He just shit himself. A modest 5.6 earthquake was reported in Stillwater, OK at the time when Herbie was reporting for ESPN from the Okie State-Kansas State game when you can see his eyes completely bug out while he tries to remain calm with Hershey squirts.
But Herbie the professional he is goes on to report while remaining calm, cool, and somewhat collected while not knowing what the hell just happened. Don't get me wrong I would have been screaming like a little girl with tears flowing pleading to call my wife and kid to Chris Fowler before the whole stadium collapsed. I've never experienced an earthquake so I can only imagine the fear. But now I know what it is like to see Herbie shit his pants. Another check on the bucket list.
