Some diehard fans of football are pretty unhappy that some other people have a different outlook on the former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno since the whole not doing a lot to stop Jerry Sandusky from sexually abusing young kids thing came to light, so they've erected a billboard near a rural central Pennsylvania highway to remind everyone how many times he helped a school win at sports games.
Apparently nobody knows who's ACTUALLY behind putting this up (above), and the people who put up a bunch of similar ones last fall are
If we're to believe this witness, it sounds like Joe Paterno DID in fact disagree with how the university "mishandled" its response to Jerry Sandusky's child sex abuse scandal, and was worried the school would try to scapegoat him.
Mike McQueary was the one who testified about this as a star witness in a hearing for three former Penn State officials accused in a cover-up. Specificially, Paterno said that
Jerry Sundusky is currently serving 30 to 60 years in prison for allegedly committing child sexual abuse, and taking into mind that his late ex-boss, Joe Paterno was accused of covering the molestation — Paterno's wifey Sue is now saying that she and her hubby were "ignorant to the magnitude of the problem."
Sue spoke at the the Pennsylvania Family Support Alliance's annual breakfast, which is a nonprofit that focuses on preventing child abuse, in Harrisburg, Pa. earlier today, and she admits that she never thought of Jerry as a child molester and even feels she and her husband helped him "groom his victims."
Miz Paterno has been defending Joe like crazy though, and we don't think she's gonna stop now, even if she revealed that she handled the situation without thinking about what was really going on.

Penn State assistant coach and convicted child molester, Jerry Sandusky just had a prison interview with John Ziegler on the Today show, and while the session was conducted in order to try to clear Sandusky's ex-boss, Joe Paterno's name, NBC is now receiving backlash for even administering the interview.
"I know this sounds crazy, but I know that was meant to happen to me. Like I'm such a different person. It was meant to happen to me. I really feel like things happen in your life to teach you things. It was probably no secret, you see it on the show and us being flashy, I was definitely materialistic before. Not that there's anything bad with having things and working hard to get those things... but I'm so happy my kids get this me...Because I just don't care about that stuff anymore."
Wow! Good for her, seriously. There's nothing wrong with having and wanting nice things, but there's a limit to everything.
The celeb even walked Ellen through some of the terrifying robbery, explaining:
