Jerry Sandusky Trial's Jury Is So Penn State

We knew it was going to turn out like this, but it's still kind of amazing to look at how many ties to Penn State there are among the jurors in Jerry Sandusky's sex assault trial. In addition to the nine chosen Tuesday, which included a current Penn State student in addition to others with ties to the school, Wednesday's jurors added even more university associations to the complete jury.

From the AP's report:

... an engineering administrative assistant at Penn State, a dance teacher in the school's continuing education program and a professor who has on the faculty for 24 years.

They also include a Penn State senior, a retired soil sciences professor with 37 years at the university, a man with bachelor's and master's degrees from the school and a woman who's been a football season ticket holder since the 1970s.

As for the one alternate who's been chosen:

This was all but bound to happen in State College, leading some to wish the trial had been held elsewhere.
