    You apparently believe that having an association with Penn State somehow prejudices a juror in favor of Sandusky.

    I'm not so sure.   I can't say what's in the hearts of these jurors.   But if Sandusky was a coach at the University I attended,  the greater risk the court would have from me is bias towards the prosecution.   In addition to the personal damage he did to the lives of these boys, he did immeasurable damage to the name and reputation of Penn State Univeristy, and thereby great injury to everyone associated with that institution.   If I were associated with Penn State and on this jury, that fact would make me all the more determined to see that justice is done here, and show that he does not fairly represent my school.
