Matt Millen Cries On Air Discussing Lurid Penn State Sex Scandal, Tenure As Lions GM

Millen sits on the board of Jerry Sandusky’s foundation. Like anyone associated with Penn State these days, it’s getting emotional.

The disturbing allegations that former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky molested and raped young boys for years — while the higher ups at Penn State knew and did nothing — has the potential to become the worst sports scandal in history.

In a rare unscripted moment on ESPN, former Penn State player and Second Mile board member Matt Millen broke down in a rambling but occasionally lurid rant about the situation. Watch as Millen, in the process of thinking out loud, first defends Sandusky’s right to a fair trial, then comes to the tearful conclusion that a society that cannot protect its children is “pathetic.”

Remarkably, some idiots rallied in support of Joe Paterno last night.

Have they no shame?

Sandusky allegedly confessed to a boy’s mother back in 1998. Why on earth the man is still walking free boggles the mind.

As the fate of Penn State football coach Joe Paterno hangs in the balance, new details have emerged about how the university failed to report the child sexual assaults allegedly committed by his former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.

According to prosecutors, Penn State had multiple opportunities to stop Sandusky’s alleged abuse. In 1998 two boys reportedly came forward to say Sandusky had fondled them in the team’s showers. Campus police had eavesdropped on a conversation between Sandusky and one boy’s mother. That mother recently described the exchange to local reporter Sara Ganim with the Patriot News.

“He admitted to taking the shower, he admitted to some extent something bad happened,” the woman, who was not identified, said. “He asked her for forgiveness. He said ‘I probably won’t get it from you,’ and then he said ‘I wish I were dead.'”
