I'm sure most of you have seen what's going on at Penn State and have your own opinions. Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union caught up with Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny, who played for Joe Paterno at Penn State to get his thoughts on the surreal situation. As most of you should know by now, Paterno was fired last night and a quasi-riot ensued.

 

"If he knew exactly what was going on, you have to. You have to tell. You can't let that go. If he knew exactly what was going on as a human, you can't let that go," Posluszny told the Florida-Times Union about Paterno and his involvement in the scandal. Posluszny said during his time at Penn State, no one knew anything like this was going on, "Everybody from back home, former teammates calling. We're all in just complete shock that this happened at our school, while we were there, that this investigation was going on while we were there and nobody know. Nobody knew." Posluszny continued, "Coach Sandusky was still around. We would see him and just nobody, when we were there, nobody knew what was going on behind the scenes and that's unfortunate and disappointing. Obviously, looking back on it now, we wish this was handles a different way."
