Vicky Triponey told Joe Paterno to have his players fly straight, and got fired.

The Newark Star Ledger ( has the story.

I was wondering where this person was: someone who was smelling the smells around the Penn State football program, and spoke up about it. Even though the issue here was not Sandusky, but rather the fact that some Penn State players used to get in trouble, it’s not surprising that in the Pennsylvania strong-man environment, Ms. Triponey got gotten rid of—and ended up in New Jersey. New Jersey gets made fun of for a few things, mostly undeserved, but one thing is certain: when it comes to smelly politics, it can’t beat Pennsylvania.
