Did anyone see what happened to Joe Paterno? He got nailed by one of the players and he got carted off the field. Hope he's going to be ok...

it really is time for him to retire.

The game is so fast and he can't even try and protect himself over on the sideline.

75 years old. Retire and enjoy your life. Enjoy your grandkids. Why work yourself to the grave??? I don't understand it, but hey. Whatever.

Actually, isn't he 79? I wouldn't be surprised if Joe didn't have a torn acl at the least.

He is 79 and will be 80 next month. He fractured his tibia and has ligament damage to his knee-area. And he should not retire, he is a living legend.

Yeah I'm a diehard PSU fan and I think he should hang it up.

he needs to retire, but not because the game is passing him by. He's going to be 80, it's about time to just call it a day.

Also a lot of Penn State's turn around last year (and recruiting success the last couple of years) is because of Larry Johnson Sr (who got everybody he himself recruited last year, AJ Wallace, Antonio Logan-El, Maurice Evans, Phillip Taylor).

He hasn't done too bad this year coaching wise, if Morelli actually played up to his talent (and didn't cost them the Ohio State or Wisconsin game) they'd be a pretty good team.

I agree. Penn State had many chances to get in and take over the game but kept shooting themselves in the foot. Sucks. :mad:

Joe Pa deserves to be able to retire when HE wants to.

Word going around is the Penn St people are in love with Schiano and if Joe Pa leaves after this year (which some thing will happen) they will go hard after Schiano.

I think the MIAMI HERALD had something on this today

could see that happening since Schiano has strong recuiting ties in the areas Penn State recruits. Plus Schiano coaches a style that PSU fans would like

Note: I've said Schiano won't lave Rutgers for the U, and I stand by that statement. Too much turmoil at the U. He goes to PSU he gets a lot of young players, you've got 2 very good junior WRs next year(Williams and Butler), a potential All American CB (King), and a defense that has a lot of very good sophomores and RS Freshmen next year.

Hell more that I think about it, I could see him going to Michigan State if he's offered the job.
