Is Jerry Sandusky A Dummy?

B1G Blotter, Jerry Sandusky

Is Jerry Sandusky a dummy - or just pretending?

I very much enjoyed these sentences from award-winning journalist Sara Ganim*:

The former coach has always had an aw-shucks manner about him, and those who knew him long before these allegations say he has a boyish demeanor and a silly side.

But let’s get something straight: Jerry Sandusky is not a dumb guy.

That’s a jumping off point for a rumination over whether Sandusky is just playing dumb as part of his defense that he didn’t know what he was doing was wrong. Read the whole story.

*All journalists are award-winning journalists. In fact, I’m a (former) award-winning journalist.

  1. Gopher Bandanna Guy Says:

    Anyone who can preside over a NCAA Division I football defense for as many years as Sandusky has, and have that level of success is clearly no dummy.
