The video above is an episode of ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” from 2008. It is a report about off-field crimes committed by Penn State football players. What caught my eye in this report was not the behavior of the players, but the interviews with Coach Paterno and President Spanier. Even back then, there seemed to be a circling of the wagons. The President’s last words were telling. He was not nearly as concerned with the crimes committed as he was with the bad press that Penn State had gotten for their players’ crimes.
