This was the part of the Sandusky scandal that was so incredibly upsetting to me and most people. The way in which Penn State handled it, and especially Joe Paterno, was absolutely unacceptable. I love football too. I believe he was a great coach. But he did not do the right thing.
It's true. State College, Pa., known as "Happy Valley" and home to more than 45,000 students of the Pennsylvania State University and additional surrounding Centre County residents, is actually a very happy place.
Bacon talks about honor when he talks about how college players in the Big Ten should represent their teams, with a focus on academics and emerging as real student-athletes.
It is a teaching moment that school officials covering up Steubenville rapes were indicted on the International Day to Eliminate Violence Against Women. It is infuriating that in the year 2013 we still have to teach the teachers that rape is rape. But it must be done.

Amidst all of the political shenanigans, world coming-to-an-end drama and heart-wrenching tragedy of the last few months, some may have missed that ch...
As a savvy publishing company my plan was to scoop up one of the great fallen heroes of 2012 for the rights to their mega mea culpa. I put in a call to John Edwards in Raleigh, North Carolina.
How else can they not merely protect but ensure their reputation? If not, then they had better be prepared for severe losses in financial support and membership.
The scandal at Penn State is a shadow across the soul of the university, a bitter reminder that the president who fails to confront corruption will ultimately fail completely, taking down countless other people as he crashes.
During the past few years we have finally been hearing more about an epidemic of sexual abuse of children , and thankfully, a few prosecutions. The pe...
It is impossible to erase what really happened. Lance Armstrong won those seven races. In the rewrite of Armstrong's records the sport of cycling would have you believe they are punishing the perfidy of their greatest rider, while what they really want is for the world to forget their own.
