    Joe Paterno Near Death

    I know this is not the appropriate forum but figured it was big enough football news for the masses to initially see. Feel free to move

    Only thing keeping him alive was working at Penn State. He has accomplished more in his life time than I could in 5 life times. Quite the man and sucks it ended the way it did. Wish him and his family the best.

    If he didn't turn his head to a serial rapist I might care! This guy put a football program before child welfare and safety. Karma is a tireless hunter Joe Pa!

    The thing that he didn't do trumps anything he accomplished in his life...

    I do not wish bad things to happen to anyone. But I refuse to feel remorse for a man that turned his head to the things that happened while he was at Penn State.

    It is amazing how some coaches that coach a lifetime, pass away so quickly after leaving the game.

    Take someone's passion away from them and they will just be ready to go....it happens in football and in other jobs. Do you remember Andy Rooney from 60 minutes...he was there for like 100 yrs. When he retired, he died within the year.

    It's really not IMO.

    When JoePa was fired I gave him six months. He's essentially grieved himself to death. Granted, his health wasn't great to begin with, but Penn State football was keeping him alive. It's all he had to live for and as long as he had that he could keep his spirits up.

    This situation is really no different than a married old couple. Research shows that once one dies for whatever causes, the other typically only lasts three years. My Grandparents are 70+ and have been married since they were 19. Lived in the same house all of these years. Not going to be surprised at all that when one dies the other will soon pass as well. People really struggle when they lose what they love more than anything.

    And this is very sad for Paterno and Penn State, but head coach of Penn State football or not, Joe wasn't going to live too many more years. Sad news for Penn State and all of college football. Tough to watch his career end the way that it did.
