Pat Dye speaks out on Penn State, Sandusky: ‘If you caught your brother… you’d turn his ass in. Or kill him.’

Pat Dye would have turned Jerry Sandusky in. Or killed him.

That’s what the legendary former Auburn coach told the Huntsville Times before speaking to the Huntsville Quarterback Club last night.

From al.com:

Dye called the Penn State situation “awful, absolutely awful” and said Paterno “shoulda got out when he was 65 years old, and all of the ego and all of that other stuff wouldn’t have got in his way.

“And coach (Bobby) Bowden (Florida State) should have gotten out. And coach (Paul) Bryant. You get that old, you do not have the energy to recruit and do alumni functions and all the things that are demanded of a head football coach,” he said.

Dye never knew Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who was recently found guilty on 45 charges of child sexual abuse and was allegedly discovered in a Penn State shower room with young boy.

“Let me tell you something,” Dye said. “What he did, if you caught your brother or your father or your best friend, you’d turn his ass in. Or kill him.”

Sure, it’s easy to talk tough when speaking on hypothetical moral dilemmas. But when you talk that tough, you probably mean it.
