Put Me In Coach: Penn State student athletes caught in wrong place at wrong time

July 26, 2012

Just this past week, Penn State’s students and faculty alike watched as the empire that longtime football coach Joe Paterno and his staff spent decades building, crumble in front of their eyes in a matter of days.
What happened at Penn Sate and with long time assistant coach Jerry Sandusky has been well documented.
No punishment that any governing body could muster would do the victims justice, at least not deep down.
What happened in Happy Valley is unlike anything that has ever swept the college athletic landscape.
