21. wowzer !! quit a read. thanks (I suppose) for posting this - unbelievably
creepy. It is amazing that all this happened without the whole campus, and the rest of the world knowing
about it.

I was feeling sorry for JoePa and I guess I still do. But, I can see how it would all be tempered a bit with 1) the guy's long past with
coaching and 2) concern for overall PS reputation and his retirement.
