Penn State fires Joe Paterno, but says it's cool for Mike McQueary to coach this weekend? The same McQueary who, according to testimony, witnessed Jerry Sandusky's alleged rape of a young boy.
Matt Hahn -- Rachel Uchitel's husband and a former PSU player -- joined us to rip his alma mater's handling of the scandal. Plus, student body prez TJ Bard tries to explain why some students are on the fence about an issue that's so black and white.
Outrage and frustration -- two things you'll feel after today's episode. We did.
(3:01) PSU fires Paterno, but not McQueary -- who witnessed a boy being raped ... and then ran away like a coward. (6:40) Harvey reads the shocking grand jury testimony about what McQueary claims to have witnessed. (10:25) PSU student body president TJ Bard is on the phone. He says if "anyone has aided in the continued abuse of a child" doesn't belong at the school -- but refuses to say McQueary should be fired. (12:45) Why won't Bard stand up against McQueary? (15:00) How can the students honor the victims ... if they let McQueary at the game? (17:10) Shocking -- there's no line of communication between the university and Bard. (23:50) Another student calls in -- and won't take a hard stand on the issue. So frustrating. (42:40) Matt Hahn -- Rachel Uchitel's husband and former PSU football player -- calls in ... and FINALLY ... someone takes a serious stand against the school.
