    Paterno statue coming down

    STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Penn State University will remove the famed statue of Joe Paterno outside its football stadium, eliminating a key piece of the iconography surrounding the once-sainted football coach accused of burying child sex abuse allegations against a retired assistant.

    I was wonder when this story would get posted. I saw it on Chad Johnson's OCNN, or what ever its called, first. He even had a picture and a video of it.

    Forgive my spelling. This was sent from my phone.

    Apparently its already ripped out of the ground. They decided not to screw around and just get it over with.

    They also decided to keep Paterno's name on the library. Not sure how i feel about that.

    One source has said the death penalty may be the preferable action. Sounds like they are going to get hammered on Monday.

    There is no way they get the Death Penalty.

    College football is now all about making millions and millions. No way does the Big 10 allow one of their prized money makers go down without a fight. Losing Penn State is incredibly bad for the Big 10 conference. Michigan, Ohio State...all of them need Penn State. At the end of the season when it comes time to select the four to play for a title, Michigan and Ohio State don't want a committee looking over their watered down schedule and taking the one-loss SEC school.

    The Death Penalty was so long ago. Anytime a program gets in trouble it's so much fun to just toss that phrase out there. It's not practical punishment in this day and age. The NCAA is not out to execute programs anymore. It happened one time to one program who at the time was already on probation AND keeping books. Even at Miami and Penn State, two programs who currently aren't on probation, things are still hidden. There are some things that happened at Penn State that we'll never know about. But damn near everything was discovered at SMU because they ran their renegade program like a legitimate business.

    Id be stunned if the NCAA handed Penn State the death penalty.

    You will never see the death penalty again. The source reported the sanctions are so severe that the death penalty may be easier to recover from. We'll find out tomorrow.
