The tragedy of Jerry Sandusky and the Penn State Nittany Lions is one that everyone hopes to eventually recover from and move past, but new revelations in the case may bring it back into the national headlines soon enough.
According to CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd, a series of new revelations regarding the scandal will come out when the new book Fourth And Long: The Fight For The Soul of College Football, by author John Bacon is released:
Bacon followed four Big Ten programs over the course of the 2012 season — Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan and Northwestern. The book provides an inside — and in some cases previously unreported — look at Penn State in the days following the revelation of Sandusky’s crimes.
“They used to hang people at the Centre County courthouse,” former linebacker Mike Mauti says in the book of Sandusky, “and frankly I would have been OK with that. Hell, give us the rope, and we’ll do it for you.”
Speaking of Sandusky, his appeal hearing is expected to be hear during a session next month at a high school in Luzerne County.
