Penn State Scandal: Jerry Sandusky Reportedly Attended Game In President's Suite A Week Before Being Arrested

One of the issues that still remains unresolved from the whole Penn State scandal is how much the University knew about what Sandusky was doing, and how much of an effort they made to distance themselves from the former defensive coordinator. We'll learn more about this as the situation unfolds I'm sure, but a bit of pretty damning evidence came out this week. According to Deadspin and the Patriot News, Sandusky attended a game in the President's suite at Beaver Stadium about a week before he was arrested.

The source, who requested anonymity out of fear of jeopardizing business relationships, also told The Patriot-News that [Tim] Curley [the athletic director at the time] originally did not want to give Sandusky tickets to the game, but Sandusky's wife, Dottie, was so insistent that he eventually relented.

As if it could even get worse, this reflects extremely poorly for the former administration of the University. They are already out obviously, but if this is true, then it shows just how wrong they were in the way they treated the entire Sandusky situation.
