At the end of the day, Joe Paterno reported this to his superiors. He reported it to the head of the campus police department (which is a real police department). The Governor of Pennsylvania knew (you won't hear anything about that though). The Board of Trustees knew. But Joe is getting blasted from every angle while nothing is said about anyone else. Where's the hate for Mike McQueary who never went to police but instead went home and called his dad.
Joe not using his power to ensure something was done is disappointing to me, but he's farrrrr from a criminal, if you read the facts.

that isnt enough
and you know what? current players can transfer, and the NCAA can give them special rules so they can transfer and not have to sit a year (so the players wouldnt be hurt that way)
the whole program should be burned to the ground for at least 1 year, and better yet, 3 years. when they come back, they should not be allowed post-season play for 2 more years
AND they should be fined 60 million (a drop in the bucket for the football program if it is allowed to continue)
