    All I can say is Holy ****.

    Go here for the graphic details.

    https://www.tmz.com/2020/01/14/penn...aiah-humphries-jerry-sandusky-james-franklin/


    Coaches knew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Penn State admin knew !!!!!!!!!

    Shut that program down.

    If it weren't for TMZ none of this **** would be reported.


    "The DA reviewed the case and decided that no charges would be pursued."

    Did they ever find the D A who mysteriously disappeared during the Sandusky event? They found the laptop in the river , though. Nah. Nothing to see here.

    Big story broke yesterday of hazing at Penn State by upperclassmen, was called "violent hazing with sexual threats" including telling younger players they were going to "Sandusky you." One of the players named as being involved was Yatur-Matos.

    He's not the primary suspect there's 2 other players, one Penn State suspended briefly the other the accuser said threatened to gun him down if he ever comes to my city.

    No idea if true or not but if he doesn't have good answers for NFL people during interviews, Yatur-Matos is going to fall.

    A potential first-round pick, I'm not sure where he gets picked after the allegations.

    The story has hit the papers here & Gross-Matos's name was mentioned as you stated. We'll have to wait to see how much validity there is to the entire story. His story is a sad, yet uplifting one. Dad drowned back when he was like 2-3 years old. His Mom & Stepdad both work in law enforcement. Strong family structure with him, so we'll have to wait and see what his actual involvement was. I know quite a few PSU alumni, so I'm trying to get more answers.

    I saw something on ESPN ticker yesterday about James Franklin being sued by a former player now at CAL and one other player was named in lawsuit. Maybe its connected to this?

    Another disgusting event in a series of events.

    "The players named in the suit -- defensive tackle Barber, linebacker Micah Parsons, defensive end Yetur Gross-Matos and linebacker Jesse Luketa -- allegedly "orchestrated, participated in, directed and/or facilitated a campaign to harass and haze lower classmen members of the Penn State football team," the lawsuit claims. The four also specifically targeted Humphries "with a common purpose to haze, harass, assault and batter and retaliate" against him."

    Yes. According to the guy at Cal, Franklin told him I'll gun you down if you ever come to my town.

    TMZ has a big story on it, if true it's pretty bad. Upper classmen pinning down young players on the floor, naked, and then sexually hazing them etc.

    PSU did suspend the one guy Barber for one game but never explained why but it's clear that this was why, he and Franklin are the 2 primary guys named although again they named 2 others one of which is Yetur Gross-Matos.

    I hope for his sake he's not involved like PA Cards fan said he has a really compelling back story, very tough childhood so it would be a horrible shame if he turns out to be involved.

    No viable excuse for him or anyone regardless of "tough childhood". Victims are victims not acceptable collateral damage.

    Oh if he did this there's no excuse. I'm just saying it would be a crying shame for him to have fought through such a tough childhood and then done something as bad as this sounds.

    As my dad would say he almost made it out in one piece.

    Micah Parsons is the top prospect named in the suit, but he has one year left. That dude was a legend here at Harrisburg High.
