    "How could Penn State have been so willfully blind for so long?" No one who has paid attention to big time college football would ask that question.

    At a place like Penn State nothing is more important than football. Football is a religion there. Joe Paterno was pope. Jerry Sandusky was a priest who just needed to be warned and transferred to another post.

    Big time college athletics has its own logical system, and like religious doctrine, it's all self-contained. Coaches make millions and players make nothing, and it makes perfect sentence to all concerned. Where else in the universe could this be true?

    The logic extends to the football coach at US Naval Academy, the highest paid employee in government.
