The more data I see, the more confounded I am that this could happen. It's pathetic.
Likewise. I finally read this thing and it wasn't easy. I am convinced as well.
Immensely disturbing stuff going on here. It looks more like a cabal of powerful people doing everything they can to keep the university looking good. The story around Paterno rings more of people providing a "legend" with plausible deniability than anything else (and doing a poor job of it at that).
I'm firmly in the "Knew or didn't know intentionally" camp.
