Death threats keep Penn State coach McQueary sidelined

Pennsylvania's governor is calling for a crackdown on what he calls the "knuckle heads" who are rioting at Penn State to protest Joe Paterno's firing.

WOODBURY - Pennsylvania's governor is calling for a crackdown on what he calls the "knuckle heads" who are rioting at Penn State to protest Joe Paterno's firing. Meanwhile, death threats against the coach who first reported the Penn State sex abuse will keep him off the sideline tomorrow. Mike McQueary will not be at the game when Penn State hosts Nebraska tomorrow.

In 2002, McQueary told head coach Paterno that he saw the defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky in the shower molesting a young boy.

There are also reports that Paterno has contacted a criminal attorney.
