He led the Penn State Football team for 46  years. He died in shame, alone w/o his retirement,  from complications due to cancer treatment. He was told about an incident of sexual abuse inflicted o one of his players by one of his staff. He did what all college staffers do, including college security people., He reported it to his boss and let them handle it. Right or wrong that is how delicacies are handled on college campuses. You see it’s all about trustees and money. Winning and no scandal keeps money coming in to colleges. As football coach, Joe Paterno knew that. To many Joe was Mr. Football! He was a hero , kids looked up to him. He made kids want to come to Penn State!  The team under his leadership inspired young men to  give it all as they worked to get themselves accepted at  Penn state. “The Great Book of Penn State Sports Lists – David Pencek, Matt,” provides.. GREATEST PENN STATE FOOTBALL PLAYERS FROM PENNSYLVANIA …’


As victim of sexual abuse myself, I don’t condone what Joe did, I understand it. He was  from an old ere that ” hushed this type of “scandal.”  Everyone knew it existed;but, no one would admit it existed. I hope history will be kinder  to Joe! Personally, I wonder if he died  from a broken heart! Rest in peace, Joe! Thank you for all the good you did!

  1. Freedom, by the way said

    I agree. The stress he was under gave the disease a ripe environment to flourish. I really think history will be kind to Paterno in the long run.
