[quote=“NittanyIllini, post:7979, topic:2287”]I think what a lot of people, me included, have issues with is the fact that certain Penn Staters along the way, when discussing this matter, have or had seen no issues with Sandusky just showering with boys.
"Oh, he didn't do (this or that), so that's just 'horsing around' and that's OK."
Grown man, showering alone with 10, 11, 12 year old boys who are not his son. Sorry folks…but I don’t care if there is nothing illegal about it. THAT SHOULDN’T HAPPEN EVER.
For that, there is no “in hindsight”. Shame on those in 1998 (and maybe 2001) for not doing more themselves.[/quote]
Depends on when you grew up. It was common practice when I was a youth (and, to my understanding, was even a common practice up until recently in many YMCAs). Heck, when I was a freshman at PSU, you were required to take a swimming class (or maybe it was pass a swimming test) which took place at the downtown natatorium and was conducted in the nude. Nobody thought twice about it. Think that would happen today? Not likely. That’s probably part of the reason that Penn State’s coaching staff, which was up in years, never raised a red flag when Jerry brought kids around the locker room.
