Penn State Trustees

Reportedly Ask New Coach

to Keep McQueary Off Sidelines

The Penn State board of trustees have reportedly asked new head football coach Tom Bradley to keep Mike McQueary from coaching from the sidelines on Saturday ... out of fear for McQueary's safety.

According to Pennsylvania's Morning Call newspaper ... the board does not plan to fire McQueary or ask him to step down.

McQueary is the person who claims he witnessed Jerry Sandusky raping a pre-teen boy in the Penn State locker room in 2002 ... and reported it to Joe Paterno.

While JoePa was fired for failing to contact police -- McQueary still has a job, despite the fact he also didn't call cops ... and worse yet, he didn't try to stop Sandusky from raping the boy when he had the chance.

It's unclear if Coach Bradley will pull McQueary from the sidelines on Saturday ... or have him coach from the skybox ... or instruct him to simply stay home.

Fire him immediately! I am outraged by how everyone swept this abuse under the rug for what?? The sake of football? Is football more important than the safety and well being of children?? Disgusting! Penn State is a disgrace.

The board does not plan to FORCE McQueary to be outted - from the sidelines and from the team?

Wassup with that. The Board of Trustees must be bound by some legal "schmeigalese" that precludes them right now from booting McQueary as far from Penn State as they can - otherwise I cannot imagine why McQueary stays and Spanier and Paterno are out.

In my opinion Mike McQueary is not fit to coach Division One football. Not morally fit for LIFE - as a matter of fact.

Mike McQueary - man up and resign, dude. You are TOAST.

He should be strung up by his balls for not stopping that monster, but since we can't do that in modern society, he should at least be fired.

JoPa is nothing but a selfish man. Yes, he has given PennState's football a prestigious name, but that's all he cares about--football. He said from now on he will do w/e he can to help out the university. Well, HELLO! How about the children? Why don't you help them? At least do something..."I wish I could have done more." He only wishes that because the secret came out! If this hasn't been reported, I HIGHLY doubt Paterno would even budge a finger on reporting for the child. I don't care if JoPa is a legend...by neglecting his moral responsibilties, it shows what kind of character he and his fellow sports comrades are--PIGS. Selfish ADULT men who could not even help out a child. There is no doubt that the children will be traumatized for the rest of their lives. When they are young and being touched, raped and molested, what are they suppose to do? What's wrong, what's right? Their lives are forever ruined by that monster and these hiders didn't even call the police? Yeah, I highly doubt not filing a claim in the board is the limit. CALL THE DAMN COPS. Ugh, this story sickens me.

Shame on you Penn State for not doing the right thing. Erickson said there are complexities regarding McQueary???? What is complex about a 28 year old man seeing a child getting sexually assaulted in the shower and not going to the cops? Are you kidding me? And then tells his father who also does nothing? What is complex about that..please enlighten me. Penn State you are not making things better in case you haven't noticed. My son spent four years with you and was so proud to be a Nittany Lion, don't let him down. Do what you know should be done. Don't protect McQueary, FIRE HIM. I can bet if it was your child you wouldn't even think twice, WOULD YOU?
