UPDATE: On Wednesday night, the Penn State Board of Trustees announced they have fired Paterno as well as University President Graham Spanier.
We weren't sure about posting an XP about this story -- we're worried the conversation here could get out of hand quickly -- but this is the biggest story in football right now and we figure our readers do want somewhere to discuss it. For those of you hiding under a rock recently, former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky has been charged with sexual molestation of a number of young boys, and two top Penn State officials have been charged with failing to alert police when they investigated the allegations. So far, there are no charges against Joe Paterno, but this is obviously a big deal, and stories of this ilk tend to snowball. Please be respectful of each other and the story in the comments.
