Here’s the Daily Collegian coverage of the riots last night at Penn State. They quote a few more students who support Paterno’s firing than does the New York Times, which found more than one Penn State student who sounds like a real moron.
Paterno’s late night talk with students was also captured by the Collegian. At about 00:40 in this video, he says that we should all “pray a little” for the victims. That statement makes an interesting counterpoint to this Times profile of Mike McQueary, the then-graduate assistant and now-assistant coach who discovered Jerry Sandusky raping a 10 year old boy in the PSU showers in 2002:
He immediately left, met with his father and determined he would report the incident to Paterno, according to prosecutors. A person familiar with his account said McQueary did not spare the details when he met with Paterno. Nor did he when he met with the university’s athletic director and another senior administrator, the man in charge of Penn State’s campus police.
