Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky, serving time in prison for sexual assault, is corresponding with people on the outside a la Aaron Hernandez.

And, much like letters from the jailed former New England Patriots star, Sandusky's words reveal much, perhaps even more than he himself realizes.

"I've been quite confined, always searching for purpose," Jerry Sandusky writes (the usual caveats applying to every word he says, obviously).

"For now, my main purpose is to endure, learn from and grow form this experience. It is very challenging. I exercise, read, meditate and do a lot of writing."

"I've written and continue to write my account of what has happened."

A man who interviewed disgraced football coach Jerry Sandusky in prison has given his second victim an ultimatum that arguably amounts to extortion:

Give me an exclusive interview, or I'll reveal your identity.

Sandusky, Interviewer

John Ziegler, who interviewed Sandusky for a documentary he hopes will clear Joe Paterno's name, said Monday that he planned to "out" victim #2.

Sandusky was convicted of raping the victim in a Penn State shower back in 2001, following testimony from former PSU assistant football coach Mike McQueary.

John Ziegler, a documentary filmmaker, played excerpts of interviews he conducted with Jerry Sandusky on the Today show Monday, clashing with Matt Lauer.

Sandusky, the former Penn State football coach serving a minimum 30-year prison sentence for child sexual abuse, is portrayed somewhat sympathetically.

Ziegler's documentary, “The Framing of Joe Paterno,” has not been received positively from Paterno's family, who sought to distance itself from Ziegler.

In the brief tape excerpts, Sandusky, who did not testify at his trial, questioned Penn State’s investigation, conducted by former FBI director Louis Freeh.

The day before his sentencing, former Penn State football coach and convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky has released a statement from jail.

In it, Sandusky alleges that an enormous conspiracy has been working against him, starting with "a young man who was dramatic, a veteran accuser [who] always sought attention."

Sandusky goes on to say this man was "was joined by a well-orchestrated effort of the media," in conspiring to paint him as a monster, including "investigators, the system, Penn State, psychologists, civil attorneys and other accusers.

"They won," he adds. 'I've wondered what they really won: Attention, financial gain, prestige… will all be temporary."

Penn State University is doing all it can to separate itself from the Jerry Sandusky scandal, which has sent that pedophile to jail, resulted in unprecedented sanctions against the football team and led to new uniforms for the players.

How will the fans feel the effects of this sordid situation?

Penn State announced this week that it has outlawed the playing of Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" at home football games, a single used as a traditional sing-a-long on campus for many years.

Track lyrics, as heard below, include the line "touching me, touching you," and... well... we don't need to explain why some might see that as inappropriate now, do we?

What do you think of this decision? Should Penn State ban the song?

Joe Paterno and other Penn State University engaged in a major cover-up to hide years of child abuse at the hands of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

So state the findings of a new independent investigation into the horrific world of the man recently convicted on 45 charges of sexual assault against minors.

According to The Freeh Group, a task force hired by the University Board of Trustees, Paterno "failed to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for over a decade."

The reports goes on to cite the famous, late football coach numerous times - and also includes references to Penn State president Graham Spanier, Athletic Director Tim Curley and Vice President Gary Schultz - and states the leaders "repeatedly concealed critical facts" in order to stave off bad publicity for the school.

Based on interviews and emails, the group alleges Paterno knew about Sandusky's appalling, illegal actions since March 1998 and never acted to deny his co-worker access to young boys.

"They showed no concern about the victim," the report reads. "At the very least, Mr. Paterno could have alerted the entire football staff, in order to prevent Sandusky from bringing another child into the Lasch Building."

Paterno, who passed away in January of lung cancer, is classified as contributing to a list of "catastrophic failures" by the university to stop a child predator in his tracks.

It's a damning litany of accusations against a man long considered to be one of the most revered sports figures of the 20th century.

Former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky will be appealing his convictions on dozens of counts of child sexual abuse, his defense team says.

After a trial that featured graphic testimony from eight victims, jurors late Friday found Jerry Sandusky guilty on 45 of the 48 sexual abuse counts.

The eight victims, now young men, testified that they were boys when Sandusky forced them to engage in sexual acts over the course of 15 years.

After being found guilty, Sandusky, 68, was taken immediately to the jail in Centre County, Pa. He will be sentenced officially in about 90 days.

He likely will be sentenced to serve the rest of his life behind bars.

Sandusky's defense team plans to file a motion for appeal, claiming he had ineffective counsel, based on lawyer Joe Amendola talking to the media.

A linchpin of the appeal will also be prosecutor Joe McGettigan's statements during his closing argument, when he told jurors that Jerry Sandusky could have proclaimed his innocence during an interview with Bob Costas on NBC.

That violates Sandusky's right to post-arrest trial silence, his camp argues.
