    Mike'd Up: The Mike Francesa Show

    Right before the Girardi interview, he was debating with a caller whether this loss was worse than 2004. Francesa said no, caller said yes..."At least they were competitive in 2004!" L-freakin'-O-L.

    GREEESHHHHH!

    So far, Gresh has made several references to "having nuts" and "nut busting" in the span of less than an hour. This guy has a wife and kids? He's like Newman from Seinfeld. Not a fan of Tanguay, but was he really that much worse than Gresh?

    Penn State AD and Sandusky Charged

    No, I'm just positing why UVA abruptly dumped Sandusky after the visit to State College. He was a finalist and then they pulled the plug after going there. Alrhough they surely didn't know the guy was a Pedo, it's not far fetched to think they smelled smoke.

    Penn State AD and Sandusky Charged

    Second Mile was seen by some as a Pedophile Victim Factory and that was credible enough to the UVA people (and perhaps the Maryland people) to ice his candidacy. I can't imagine that if they heard whispers from low level people about Sandusky, they would have made the decision to bail without...

    Joe Posnanski: your new Senior Writer for SI (Not No More, He Ain't)

    I believe she got a book deal already. Winning a Pulitzer doesn't hurt your job prospects apparently.

    Penn State AD and Sandusky Charged

    I think the problem for most people will be how they respond to the inevitable questions a prospective boss, colleague, client or whatever will have about the scandal. It will come up as in "Wow, that Sandusky thing was crazy. Were people aware he was a pedophile?" or something along the lines...

    Joe Posnanski: your new Senior Writer for SI (Not No More, He Ain't)

    On a much smaller level, I did a 2-semester, 6-credit senior thesis in college on Toni Morrison and I basically had to scrap the entire thing in the final 2 weeks before I graduated and start over. I killed myself for those 2 weeks but ultimately turned in a good paper and got an A. One thing...

    Penn State AD and Sandusky Charged

    I watched this last night and came away from it thinking they will do something and it won't be a wrist slap. That guy was careful with his words, but I no longer think they'll shrug their shoulders and say "Beyond our purview!"

    Penn State AD and Sandusky Charged

    One could easily interpret Paterno's dislike of Sandusky's devotion to Second Mile (the reason stated for why he would never be HC) as acknowledgement that Paterno suspected or knew what Sandusky was up to even then. He could have seen it as the Victim Factory it was given Joe's unique vantage...

    Penn State AD and Sandusky Charged

    Sure, but then you run the risk of having him either get caught raping kids by people with a conscience who will expose him for what he is and run the risk of having to answer questions about a guy who worked for you as high-ranking, trusted assistant for 30 years. Apparently the feared...

    I am told the Paternos have hired Dottie Sandusky to lead the inquiry.

    Penn State AD and Sandusky Charged

    It's because everyone knows Paterno had more power at PSU than all of them. He was among the most powerful person in the god-forsaken state of Pennsylvania, by many accounts.

    Penn State AD and Sandusky Charged

    I agree that not everyone at PSU is a mouth-breathing idiot like the kid JohnMD quoted, but you can't call the sweeping generalizations "equal"to the idiocy. Yea, it's dumb, but It's not even close. The fact of the matter is that the most vocal PSU supporters are those wailing about a Paterno...

    Joe Posnanski: your new Senior Writer for SI (Not No More, He Ain't)

    Frankly at this point, the story about a writer who catches Stockholm Syndrome while writing a biography about a famous man whose mythological rep that gets taken down during the writing process would make a great story/movie.

    Penn State AD and Sandusky Charged

    What's the culpability of the University police chief, Tom Harmon? According to the report, it appears he chose not to log the questioning of Sandusky, the victim or his conferences with PSU officials in 1998 as a courtesy and to prevent word from getting out. Does he have some professional...

    Penn State AD and Sandusky Charged

    Why else did she get the interview with Paterno if not for the fact that she was seen as being a marshmallow who wouldn't do any real digging on Paterno's assertions and wouldn't challenge him more vigorously? She got played. Quelle surprise. Nice Freudian slip there, LeftyTG. "CYS" vs. "CYA."

    GREEESHHHHH!

    I had to turn it off -- he's an absolute idiot and perhaps the most annoying person on the radio right now, even more than Butch Stearns, who is just a moron.

    The Freeh Report says they've failed at Qs 1 through 3. Q4 is still up in the air, it seems.

    Penn State AD and Sandusky Charged

    Who labeled them "evil?" This is the kind of false moral equivalency that many PSU supporters CONTINUE to try to make -- that everyone has failings, that the "truth" is in the middle, et al. Is the truth of the Holocaust "in the middle" -- were the Nazis good people who just didn't understand...

    Penn State AD and Sandusky Charged

    The report says at the request of the AG, they did not interview McQueary and UPolice Chief Tom Harmon. The report said they were able to corroborate info about what these two said/did via interviews, emails, documents and court testimonies, IOW, it wasn't necessary to talk to them. Nothing...
