The STEP program was one matter. The negative impact on attendance this season has been well documented, most recently in an article in the Allentown Morning Call. However, that pales in comparison to a more than ten-year coverup and conspiracy to protect an alleged child molester.
Unfortunately, this is what Penn State fans had to wake up to on this bye-week Saturday:
This is the image of Penn State that is now on every major news network. What an embarassment and black eye on the university that we all love.
The saddest thing is I think most Penn Staters held Sandusky in the highest regard for a long time, and he has made everyone look like fools.
The Penn State police received reports about this in the late 90's and it looks like they were forced to cover it up by Schultz and Curley.
