In a Monday phone interview with NBC's Bob Costas, former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky denied claims that he's a pedophile . Though Sandusky was staunch in his innocence,  the interview left some viewers skeptical, to say the least. Here are some reactions circulating the web today:    "At the very least, he confirmed to viewers that he exhibits inappropriate behavior around young boys. In hearing the way he spoke and sounded, I was left with a creepy feeling about him and I'm sure I'm not alone," Mark Paul, Yahoo News   "Jerry Sandusky's bizarre answer...

The turn of the calendar to September marks an awakening for college football fans. Hats and hoodies emblazoned with alma maters are dusted off, game-day party plans are organized and preseason rankings are scrutinized. The same rituals hold true for about 4,800 Chicago-area Penn State graduates, with one notable difference: The conviction of former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky on child sexual abuse charges has brought severe sanctions upon the Big Ten team and has shaken the community as a whole.

If Chicagoans weren't already sickened by the allegations in the Penn State child abuse scandal, they will be after they hear Mike Ditka's defense of Penn State football coach Joe Paterno. "I think it's very unfair, but that's the media," Ditka said in an interview with Action News in Philadelphia. "He did what he was supposed to do and unfortunately, great people get dragged down when stupid people do bad things. " Alas, it looks as if Joe Paterno, who was fired by university trustees Wednesday, did some bad things himself.

Where do you start? Do you start with the accused, Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant football coach at Penn State, who's been charged with abusing children as those at the university where he was employed did nothing? Do you start with the alleged victims, boys as young as 8 years old, who will be scarred for as long as they live, longer even than football coach Joe Paterno's storied career? Do you start with the coach himself, a man so revered they call him "Pa," who didn't do enough to stop it?

Generally, the Supreme Court's ruling on Arizona's draconian “show me your papers, brown people” law - otherwise known as SB 1070 - has led to confusion. They kind of said, “No, you can't arrest undocumented people just because they have a tail light out,” yet the Tucson police department still expects the law to cause an additional 50,000 calls to federal immigration authorities , who will most of the time not respond and therefore leave the follow-up to local cops. By overturning the most preposterous portions of the law,...

Let's make one thing clear for those of you who apparently have completely misinterpreted everything Penn State-related over the past week--the NCAA isn't punishing the innocent by levying severe sanctions against Penn State, rather they're punishing the university culture that allowed the innocent to be stripped of their innocence in the first place. The facts are there. Multiple people looked the other way while an assistant football coach sexually abused a number of children, continually allowing him to attend university functions and use university facilities despite...

Color me impressed. In a year when it seemed virtually impossible for a weirder sports story to appear than the Manti Te'o catfish girlfriend, '90s relic Dennis Rodman gets on a plane to visit North Korea. Just a month into 2013, the Te'o scandal seemed virtually unbeatable. The guy had a mortal lock on the most bizarre ESPN-MSM-TMZ crossover superstory of the year, and then only a month later The Worm nabs a state dinner and media tour with dictator and apparent basketball fan Kim Jong Un, whose brother was once photographed wearing a Rodman...

The text arrived Thursday night, instantly sinking my heart. A Syracuse University sex scandal involving an assistant basketball coach? Really? Did karma arrive to kick me in the gut? I had just finished another self-righteous stint on my soapbox, vilifying Penn State and the horrendous crimes of which former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky has been accused. I bristled when thinking about a potential cover-up and possible lies. I was furious. Now, as a Syracuse graduate, I was left to fend off allegations in my own backyard.
