Penn State Scandal: Mike McQueary On What He Told Joe Paterno

When we initially found out that assistant coach Mike McQueary had in fact gone to Joe Paterno and told him about what he had seen the shower, the question that came to everyone's mind was, "What exactly did McQueary tell him, or, how much did Paterno actually know?" McQueary has been testifying this morning in the hearing against Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, and he just got to the part about him telling Joe Paterno, Based on these two tweets, it appears that McQueary did not divulge everything to Paterno.

So McQueary wasn't entirely honest with Paterno about what he saw, but it still seems like he told Paterno enough that the former head coach should have made a bigger stink of it. The reason why McQueary didn't tell Paterno everything doesn't exactly hold water.

See, if you work at a facility where one person has almost complete control and you witness something as wrong as this going on, that is the exact type of person you go to about it. When it comes to matters like this, there is no time for McQueary to be embarrassed about talking to his boss about it. It would be interesting to see how this whole thing would have unfolded if he had just been totally forthright with Paterno.
