The Harrisburg Patriot-News reported Sunday that the grand jury in the Jerry Sandusky case has heard a second, different version of what Penn State then-graduate assistant Mike McQueary witnessed in his 2002 encounter with Sandusky and a young boy in a PSU locker room.

McQueary has reportedly told the grand jury that he saw Sandusky and the boy engaged in a graphic sex act. But according to a source quoted in the Sunday Patriot-News report, the grand jury has also heard conflicting testimony from McQueary family friend Dr. Jonathan Dranov.  Per the source's account of Dranov's testimony, Dranov was present at the McQueary home when McQueary returned from the incident to discuss it with his father.

Dranov reportedly told the grand jury that McQueary's account that evening included seeing the boy and an adult sharing a shower stall and Sandusky leaving the showers (amongst other details), but not the graphic act of his earlier reported testimony. Dranov then advised McQueary to discuss the matter with Joe Paterno rather than go to the police, according to the Patriot-News source.

The precise nature of what McQueary told Paterno in their ensuing discussion has been the center of much of the outrage surrounding Paterno's and the PSU administration's inaction.

McQueary was placed on administrative leave from his coaching duties November 11 amidst threats to his safety.

Please Roar; stop while you're behind my man. Answer just 2 questions bro. Why was Sandusky dismissed at the zenith of his career? Do you really think Joe Pa had absolutely no knowledge of good old Jerr's issues?Come on dude; even the stupidest Nittany Lion zealot knows that Sandusky was a bit odd, but still allowed full access to PSU facilities even years after his dismissal. Roar; you're making a fool of yourself with your lame explanations for the monster that roamed your campus for over 2 decades.

your exactly correct smchap and if the case was so ironclad, why the need to hold a dog and pony show on this case to begin with? I am sure there is much much more to come.

The whole case is an example of why details should not be given out to the media and it's the prosecution starting with the State Police commissioner, state attorney general, etc. trying to convict someone in the court of public opinion rather than diligently handle the case.

Let's see...this doctor receive his undergraduate degree in 1965 from where?  Oh, here it is.  Penn State.  He then went to medical school at...gee, Penn State again.  Class of 1969.  Congrats, dude!  After completing his internship and residency at Duke, he returned to State College to open a practice and he has received many awards from Penn State aa well as donations to the medical association he started for Surgical Associates from Penn State boosters.  I'm not saying that this guy is lying.  McQeary certainly lacks credibility.  However, to take this guy, who is quite possibly part of the "good ol' boy" network at PSU, at face value is foolish.

In any case, Paterno wasn't scapegoated.  He was part of the problem.  He put the reputation of the school above the safety of children as did many others caught up in this whole disgusting mess.

Isn't it intriguing how this new account parallel's Joe Paterno's? 

But in all honesty, who am I kidding? The media wants you to believe it's all Joe's fault... 
Isn't it intriguing how Penn State and Joe Paterno apologists will grab onto anything they can that may make Paterno or Penn State look better in this situation.  Even going so far as to rely on an unnamed source who claims he knows what Dranov did or did not testify to the grand jury.  Of course, an unnamed source is unverifiable and Dranov isn't allowed to discuss what he did or did not testify to and, beyond that, Dranov may be playing up his involvement (if what the unnamed source says is even true.)  And let's not leave out the fact that Dranov works at Penn State, has known Paterno for years, and could have been coached in order to keep Paterno's name clean.

Am I being cynical?  Certainly, but that doesn't mean it is out of the realm of possibility.
