STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – A large police presence was on hand Thursday night in downtown State College in hopes of preventing a repeat of the chaos that erupted here Wednesday evening.

Mounted police officers were on patrol, law enforcement vehicles from at least three jurisdictions circled the streets and a helicopter hovered over the area for at least an hour. Officers on foot patrol wore riot helmets and carried night sticks.

The streets were quiet Thursday night. The biggest gathering was of patrons braving the cold to stand in line to get into a popular downtown night club.

On Wednesday, students and other fans filled the streets after football coach Joe Paterno was fired after 46 years as head coach and 61 years with the Nittany Lions program in the wake of the child sex abuse scandal involving former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. Hundreds went to Paterno's home on nearby McKee Street to show their support.

Students did double-takes Thursday when they saw the horses and their officer mounts because they're typically only seen during the week-long summer arts festival and on New Year's Eve

One student on a cell phone was heard saying, “There are more cops here than I've ever seen in my entire life.”

Nebraska fans headed to State College can expect to see similar law enforcement displays on Friday and Saturday in the downtown area as well as around nearby Beaver Stadium Saturday for the 11 a.m. game between the No. 19-ranked Huskers and No. 12 Penn State.

Husker fans will be the minority among the 106,000 or so expected to attend the game. Just 3,600 tickets were sold to Husker fans, the allotment given the Nebraska ticket office. The Nebraska Alumni Association did not offer a trip to the Penn State game because it was not a top choice for those who frequently travel to games, said the association's director, Diane Mendenhall.

Penn State professor R. Scott Kretchmar, who put together a seminar on sportsmanship on campus earlier this week, said he would be shocked and surprised if fans took their anger out on Husker fans.

“We should treat Nebraska fans with the dignity and respect that they're due,” he said.

Kretchmar, who recently completed his 10-year tenure as Penn State's faculty athletic representative, said he received a note Friday morning from Nebraska faculty athletic representative Jo Potuto.

“She sent me the kindest, nicest note to express her sadness with how much we're suffering," he said.

Kretchmar also added he doesn't see any "bad blood" between the Huskers and Penn State because there's not a long history of the two programs playing each other. Nebraska last played at Beaver Stadium in 2002, losing 40-7, before winning 18-10 in Lincoln in 2003.

"It's not like a rivalry yet and as far as I know there's no bad blood that would rouse emotions,” Kretchmar said. “We've had a few mishaps over the years, but I think we've done a good job with this recently. We should be on our best behavior this week.”

Quote
About 2 p.m. EST: Saw Husker fans standing with the Joe Paterno statue near Beaver Stadium. They had placed a Husker flag in his hands.

I walked around in a red hoodie and nobody assaulted me or came after me. They did look at me funny, but that was it.

Quote
About 3:30 p.m. EST: At Joe Paterno's house right now and his wife just came to the door and gave people standing with us some cookies.

There were a few Nebraska fans mingling with Penn State fans and Paterno's neighbors. Spotted several staunch Paterno defenders.

Quote
About 5:30 p.m. EST: More from the Paternos' house earlier. . .

People have been bringing gifts to Joe Paterno's house all day. It's been a steady stream of people leaving cards, flowers, food – almost like a funeral.

Earlier Friday, Paterno's wife came out and re-gifted cookies to some people nearby. When she came to the door a second time, there were shouts of "We love you" to her from some of the folks in blue.

While neighbors weren't happy with the gawkers and media clogging their street, one polite woman could be heard giving directions to the Husker fans who stopped by.

Quote
7:30 p.m. EST: Heading downtown, then plan to stop by the candlelight vigil planned by students. The vigil will be held in front of the campus administration building to show support for the boys who were allegedly abused.

State College police Capt. John Gardner said he does not expect problems at Saturday's game. Authorities are monitoring Facebook and Twitter, and Penn State's residence life department is organizing group discussions for students to talk out their feelings about the week's events.

The university implemented increased security measures for all athletic events this weekend, including a ban on bags — purses included — at all arenas, and Gardner said there will be a "significant police presence" at Beaver Stadium.

Also, instead of the traditional "white out" for Saturday's game, fans were asked to wear blue — the color associated with child abuse awareness.

Quote
8:30 p.m. EST: It's pretty quiet on College Avenue. There are more cars and vans lining the street than there were earlier, but not seeing much Husker red.

From the Lincoln Journal-Star this morning:

Quote
Cars.com pulls advertising from Penn State-NU telecast

A person familiar with the decision says Cars.com has pulled out as the "presenting sponsor" of two college football games on ESPN involving Penn State in the wake of the sex-abuse scandal engulfing the program.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the move has not been announced.

The sponsorship was withdrawn for "Saturday Afternoon College Football" for the next two weeks, including Penn State's game against Nebraska at 11 a.m. Saturday.

If you're betting, I won't take that bet.

The chain of information/"telephone" bit makes a lot of sense. And that puts Paterno right up there at the top of the shitheap. If, in fact, he heard the words "anal rape" from McQueary and watered the information down to "something of a sexual nature," Paterno deserves every negative action that comes out of this.

You can't ride the wave, being on top, for 40+ years without accepting the moral, personal, and professional responsibility that goes with it.

That's why he made the big bucks.

**** you, Joe. You're a scumbag.

The Daily Beast-Joe Paterno’s Troubling Attitude Toward Sex Charges

Quote
Paterno continued to a group of reporters: “Geez. I hope—thank God they don’t knock on my door, because I’d refer them to a couple of other rooms.”

Quote
Paterno added later: “That’s nobody’s business but mine. It’s not the fans’ business, and it’s not yours.” No one but Paterno, of course, knows whether what he had been told about Sandusky four years earlier crossed his mind.

Joe Paterno is a pervert.

All Centre County judges recuse themselves from Sandusky case

"The judges’ recusals are intended to avoid any appearance of conflict of interest due to real or perceived connections to the defendant, the Second Mile charity, or the Pennsylvania State University."

It would appear that Mr McQueary has given Pedo State University ex Athletic Director and ex Vice President the ammunition to probably get themselves out of hot water.

Penn State officials go to court in abuse case

http://www.usatoday.com/n...erjury-hearing/51451554/1

"Lawyers for former athletic director Tim Curley and former senior vice president Gary Schultz are focusing on Michael McQueary's recent statements that appear to contradict grand jury testimony about a 2002 incident in which McQueary allegedly saw Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky rape a 10-year-old boy."

Making statements in an interview ain't quite the same as making statements on the witness stand.

On the witness stand, you can go to jail for perjury. In an interview with a journalist? No so much.
