If This creep had been exposed in 1998 when the first allegations came out and Paterno or whoever had reported him what would be the worst case scenario? It's not like they would have any wins taken away or one of their national championships. I just don't see why the university would want to cover this up. I can see why Tressel did what he did, but had Penn State reported this it may have temporarily stigmatized their program but in the end may have helped their reputation as a school that exposed a evil and reported it right away I just don't get why they covered it up to begin with.
