"Still, the parallels are unmistakable. We both came to a Big Ten school to take over an iconic college program, shaken to its core. It wasn't just that Indiana basketball and Penn State football were reliable winners; beyond the success there was pride in a certain morality authority. We did things the right way. At least we thought we did. And when that was undermined, it rocked the entire institution. We both followed legends -- your case, directly -- may have left in disgrace but still had a lot of loyalists. We both came in as outsiders."
