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.
