McQueary said he stopped alleged incident with Sandusky

When news of Jerry Sandusky's alleged sex abuse scandal broke, my first reaction to the reported incident that then-graduate assistant Mike McQueary witnessed, was why didn't McQueary do something.

Well, NBC News obtained an e-mail from McQueary to former teammates. The e-mail indicates McQueary did something.

"I didn’t just turn and run," McQueary says in the e-mail. "I made sure it stopped … I had to make quick, tough decisions."

The New York Daily News has a story.

I also didn't understand why McQueary was still on staff when others, including Joe Paterno, were let go.

After hearing Gov. Tom Corbett on Sunday, and he didn't say this specifically, but I'm of the opinion that McQueary's testimony is important. If McQueary ended up being charged or implicated, he could plead the Fifth, and not help the investigation. Maybe his paid leave is one way to keep him cooperating.

On a separate note, Sports Illustrated has an interesting article on Sandusky finding a safe haven at Penn State.

But I tell parents, you can have the right helmet, the perfect pads on, and still end up with a paraplegic kid. There’s no correcting it. There’s no helmet that’s going to correct it. There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
