Did Jerry Sandusky Pimp Out Boys at Penn State?

| by Michael Allen

The sex scandal at Penn State appeared to have reached its peak with the firing of legendary football coach Joe Paterno, the school's athletic director and the president of the college earlier this week.

But now reports are surfacing of an alleged sex ring rumored to be run by former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who is accused of raping boys.

SportsByBrooks began tweeting ominous messages (below) about allegations that have yet to become public.

If what I was told tonight about the details of the new allegation in Sandusky child sex case is true, it will horrify the public.

This is a deadly serious matter. Keep the victims in your thoughts. Cannot emphasize that enough. In your thoughts.

Also, Pittsburgh sports talk show radio host Mark Madden appeared on 'The Dennis and Callahan Show' on WEEI in Boston and dropped more alleged details.

Madden reportedly said: "I can give you a rumor and I can give you something I think might happen. I hear there's a rumor that there will be a more shocking development from the Second Mile Foundation -- and hold on to your stomachs, boys, this is gross, I will use the only language I can -- that Jerry Sandusky and Second Mile were pimping out young boys to rich donors. That was being investigated by two prominent columnists even as I speak."

"The other thing I think that may eventually become uncovered, and I talked about this in my original article (Beaver County Times) back in April, is that I think they'll find out that Jerry Sandusky was told that he had to retire in exchange for a cover-up. If you look at the timeline, that makes perfect sense, doesn't it?"

Madden later told Deadspin.com: "I know two major columnists in Pennsylvania that are investigating it. I certainly didn't go off half-assed at this point."

"It wasn't me reporting it. I collated it enough to make it clear it was others who told me this, and I collated it enough to make it clear I have some faith in their news judgment. I'm not the one up there looking at the financial records for The Second Mile. But I know somebody is."

Madden is known around Pittsburgh as a provocateur, but even legitimate journalists say he may be on the money this time. If the allegations that he is making are the same ones hinted at by Brooks, this story could just be beginning.
