I know it would cost the school some $ to alter the letterhead on their official paperwork, but they really should change the school name from Penn State to State Pen.
Sorry I don't have photoshop skills to produce an updated logo, but there is a reworked one in the Random Picture Thread with Pedobear replacing the Nittany Lion; nicely done at that.
Interesting that you're all too afraid to read the actual report of the grand jury in its entirety, yet you are all on the edge of your seats waiting for what ESPN (that notable establishment of sexual harassment, misogyny, and homophobia) has to report. A lot of what you're quoting as fact in your posts isn't based on any of the testimony offered-- it's what the media has altered and paraphrased. And some of it is downright false, for example, Sandusky was not affiliated with the team in 2002, yet several of you are arguing he was. I'm amazed that some of you know all the facts-- even offering some that haven't been reported anywhere. And you know exactly how many people had knowledge of this. Perhaps you should offer testimony to the grand jury. You were too squeamish to read the presentment, but you all clicked on the link to the rumor about kids being pimped out, didn't you?
PA law requires that allegations of sexual abuse at a state institution must be reported to the Department of Public Welfare and the police having jurisdiction by the Administration. If people think the law sucks, then change it, don't blame people for following it. The administration was notified, for whatever reasons, they didn't follow up on it. Personally I'd like to know why Paterno was fired, yet the AD and head of police services he reported the allegation to were respectively allowed to take leave and retire.
Those "riots" you heard about were greatly exaggerated. One news van turned over. No fires set, no storefronts vandalized, no looting, despite what ESPN reported. Nothing close to what happens in your fair city when a team wins a playoff game. Nothing close to what's been happening in Oakland (yet suddenly nobody gives a **** about who's occupying what where this week. Hmmmm).
I will agree that this is the tip of the iceberg, but not in the way you think. I believe enough victims across the country will be emboldened by this and you'll start hearing about a lot more cases like this across the country, even your own alma mater.
Thing that pisses me off even more is the McQueary played in Sandusky's golf tourney in 2004 for his sham of a "foundation". My guess is that McQueary was given a job for keeping quiet. Some low moral character there buddy.

Maybe he'll come to UCLA.
Perhaps you should direct some of your righteous indignation toward your own organization that allows coaches who engage in incest to remain employed.
