The focus of this week’s Dan Wetzel college football podcast is the Jerry Sandusky/Penn State scandal, something so horrific that we’ve given the entire show to that subject and skipped any frivolous features such as picking games.
Joining the show this week is Clay Travis, who in addition to running the website outkickthecoverage.com and hosting the afternoon show on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville, is a Vanderbilt Law School graduate and practicing attorney for seven years.
Dan and Clay discuss the legal ramifications of the case, both in terms of criminal charges, the culpability of Joe Paterno and the potential for further charges against Penn State president Graham Spanier.
The school’s civil liability, and that of individuals such as Spanier, Paterno, athletic director Tim Curley and others is also discussed. They even cite actual laws. Clay estimates the total liability will be more than $100 million and that’s if Penn State can avoid any punitive measures, which could drive things higher.

Paterno himself could pay out millions.
Next week, we hope, the podcast has a lighter tone. Right now, this is too ugly. Thanks for listening, and you can find us on iTunes now.
