I think that same observation could be made by the local residents near any major football power. However, I wouldn't go too far here. While I might entertain that they are ALL guilty of cutting corners or downright cheating to win, I'd still like to believe that most programs have at least one good man or woman who would speak out against the crimes perpetrated and covered up at Penn State.

The fish stinks from the head. Had the leadership at Penn State not condoned the activity through inaction or not wanting to know, this would have been a crime that had been committed and punished a decade ago.
