Well, there isn’t much more context I can add that hasn’t already been said or typed about the sad and troubling tale of the Penn State disaster.

Ashton Kutcher threw his two cents in on the matter by suggesting Penn State was wrong for firing Paterno (later he admitted having no knowledge of the backstory) and was soundly slapped down by Brian Cuban, brother of Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.
