    • Parts of this episode appear to be "ripped from the headlines" of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. In November 2011, Jerry Sandusky (professor emeritus and former defensive coordinator at Pennsylvania State University) was arrested on 40 counts of alleged sexual abuse for which he was later found guilty and sentenced in 2012 to 30-60 years in prison for his crimes. Sandusky used a charitable organization he founded to find many of his victims, and utilized his privileges at Penn State to reward and abuse his victims. The use of Penn State facilities caused the ouster of Joe Paterno, the Lions' beloved football coach, just days before his death. The board also called for college president Graham Spanier's resignation.
