Jerry Sandusky Grand Jury Investigation Could Put Penn State Football In Serious Trouble

The Pennsylvania Attorney General has released their report on the Jerry Sandusky investigation, and I must warn you, it is a depressing and graphic account. The Nittany Lions could be in some serious trouble here:

"This is a case about a sexual predator who used his position within the university and community to repeatedly prey on young boys," Kelly said. "It is also a case about high-ranking university officials who allegedly failed to report the sexual assault of a young boy after the information was brought to their attention, and later made false statements to a grand jury that was investigating a series of assaults on young boys.

"I hope people will understand that any suspicion of sexual abuse should be reported to the police," Commissioner Noonan said. "Sexual abuse is a serious issue and children are often scared to tell anyone about the abuse - many cases are hidden for years - but by informing the police they can stop it."

In addition to the charges against Sandusky, Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley and school administrator Gary Schulz have been charged with perjury.

I do not think it is hyperbole at all to say that this is a sad day for Penn State football.
