Being aware of the allegations and thevictims and the news—the developments of the week aroundCoach Paterno and just the developments on campus,” hesaid. And Pasch acknowledged that those developments couldchange at a moment’s notice.“What happens with (Penn State assistant) Mike McQueary.Where does he coach from, if he coaches at all? What doesthe Governor do if he steps in and does anything? Is therenews from the NCAA? What if Coach Paterno shows up? Whatif there’s a boycott?
