A Nittany Lion is the male alternative to a "Cougar."

A Nittany Lion is an older male that seeks sexual company from a younger man or boy.

The term was made popular by Jerry Sandusky, a former Penn State football coach and alleged sexual predator.
That priest is such a Nittany Lion, that altar boy is screwed... literally.

male equivalent of "cougar"; adult male who hunts for sex with younger men, either in a bar, club, or locker room
Example 1:

Former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, a sick, twisted fuckhead and reported nittany lion, is currently under investigation for molesting young boys.

Example 2:

I dunno, Michelle. He's pretty hot, but he looks like a nittany lion.

Example 3:
Hey, man. Just because I went to Penn State in the 60s doesn't mean I'm a nittany lion.

Just as Cougar is older woman who frequents clubs in order to score with a much younger man... A Nittany Lion is a older man who try's to score with little boys.

Old men who like litte boys...a Nittany Lion.

Jerry Sandusky is a Nittany Lion

An older man who chases and has sex with younger males. The male version of a "cougar".
It was 3pm on a Tuesday afternoon and Jerry, a nittany lion, was on the prowl outside of State College Elementary School looking for 3rd graders to cornhole in the team locker room.

When an older man goes after a younger boy. Kind of like a cougar, but with two men.
-So, did you hear about Jerry Sandusky?
-Yeah, that dude is such a Nittany Lion.

The male counterpart to the female "cougar", as in an older man that pursues inappropriately-aged younger men for sexual conquest.
Boy, that Penn State defensive coordinator is a REAL Nittany Lion.
