    Joe Paterno is NO Don Shula !! Sry he knew what was going on and was just worried about himself. Bury him all ready !! All it takes for evil to endure is for good men to do nothing and thats what he did. I feel sry for all those boys that were abused more then his death.

    The whole staff new about it and sat back and let a man rape and ruin the lives of a dozen boys. They are lucky its not my 11 and 14 year old boys because he would have been in a pine box months ago along with all the Penn State personal that turned their backs on these innocent children so they wouldn't ruin their careers and Penn States ego. Really sick, the media didn't kill him, IT WAS THE SHAME AND GUILT.

    He was murdered by the media and PSU. Simple as that.

    "Our team will play with discipline, poise, and maximum effort."

    You know, I was as hard on JoePa as anyone when the scandal came out, and I still hold him accountable for what he didnt do. That being said, it seems really unfair that an entire lifetimes worth of good can be erased by one poor choice. It was a poor choice and IMO he deserved to be fired, but there were lots of people more responsible for the mess than Paterno. I dont think that his entire legacy should be forgotten because of this one scandal that he wasnt even the biggest player in.

But the reality is, there's nothing more Paterno could've done to save any of those kids from Sandusky. Everybody up there already knew Sandusky was a child rapist, including the Attorney General's office and law enforcement. They are the one's that never did anything about it.What the hell was a football coach supposed to do? Paterno knew much less about Sandusky and his disgusting taste for children than law enforcement did. Furthermore, it was brought to his attention much, much later. It's the politicians that allowed Sandusky to continue molesting kids, not Coach Paterno.Paterno should've made it more of a priority once it was brought to his attention, but locking up child molesters isn't his job. Regardless of how anyone feels about Joe Paterno's lack of action, the Paterno family doesn't deserve to have their names drug through this. Honor the family at the very least and show some respect.Rest in peace coach.
    Shocking you dont think anyone belongs in the same class as Bear Bryant. You're opinion is so slanted its not funny. Do you ever think anything is better, or even on the same level as anything from Alabama?

    For what it's worth, Nick Saban is the greatest of all-time.

    Joe should have retired years ago. I understand why he didn't, but he should have. He's no different than a guy like Bobby Knight. The game changed on these guys and they couldn't adjust fast enough or just didn't want to. I know Bobby Knight didn't want to. He publicly stated that he wouldn't recruit any kid who was one and done. Hurt his career late IMO.

    Ok...this post did it..Ted was pretty easy going and more complimentry toward that spineless,senile figurehead of a coach that passed today.
    Please tell me how that former coach of NAMBLA U...is even on the same plane as a human being as Bear Bryant,muchless as a coach.
    That post is just idiotic....oh yea..Good job Nubs..thanking him for it..glad our mods here don't show personal bias.
    Joe Paterno HAS left a mark on college football....to bad it's part of the most shameful,disgusting scandal in football HISTORY.
    No matter how you sugar coat things with all these so called political correct accolades people are giving Joe...You know what people are really feeling about him......just sad disgust..plain and simple.....

    Now this is absolutely 100% true...but it will not be the case. Any time the name Joe Paterno is brought up, not far behind will be the name Sandusky or the phrase scandal. It's just what people remember. People love negative things. It's why your local news almost always leads off with something negative.

    "Murder here..." "Car Jacking over by..." "Shooting at..." "Car accident on..." "White people are scared...find out why at 11:00."

    People thrive on it.
