Critics to attend Penn State board meeting

Members of a Penn State alumni group who opposed how longtime football coach Joe Paterno was fired will question the university's Board of Trustees when it meets Friday.

The meeting is the first by the board since Paterno's controversial firing in November.

The all-time winningest football coach in NCAA Division I history was fired amid the outcry over the handling of accusations against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who faces more than 50 counts involving sexual acts with 10 boys since 1994. He has pleaded not guilty.

Paterno was alerted of his being fired during a phone call from Steve Garban, chairman of the Board of Trustees.

    I say throw caution to the wind and go-on the most rabid "witch hunt" of all time. Waterboard Mrs. Sandusky. She'll tell all about it. If it's good enough to protect US from foreign "terrorists" it's good enough to protect us from domestics who terrorize our boys.

    And I say go after Sandusky's wife, but do not demonize a university filled with students that had nothing to do with iy, dedicated educators that had nothing to do with it, nor a state that had nothing to do with it.

    "Waterboard Mrs. Sandusky" ? How about just getting th cattle-prod out?
    If it"s good enough for cattle, it'll be good enough for Mrs. Sandusky.
    I have never said anything inher defense, I think she has direct knowledge of it.
    "Witch hunt" refers to a stupid villager mentality which I fear some people here would gladly participate in.
    Where's the Frankenstein Monster? Kill him!
    No...wait...the witch hunt would have to include the villagers themselves, merely because they lived (or attended school) there. They must be witches too!

    Stop mocking my posts.
    Keep your word, for once!
