If you hit this link, you’ll hear an interview from WEEI-AM radio in Boston with Mark Madden, a radio host from Pittsburgh who seven months ago wrote an exact summary of everything that has happened at Penn State this week.
And Madden says the scandal has a different level to it altogether. You won’t like this at all. He says there’s a rumor which says that Jerry Sandusky used his Second Mile charity as a child prostitution ring for wealthy Penn State donors. He also says Sandusky’s retirement came as a quid pro quo in exchange for a cover up.
They’re also talking about shutting down Penn State football for a year to clean it out. Which isn’t likely to happen.
The scope of this is mind-boggling. Mind-boggling. It’s the worst scandal in the history of sports.
