A real shame that the Times Herald still claims to report news. Maybe they need to check their facts. Joe Paterno's all-time record is 298-136-3. Joe Pa may have been a great man for most of his life however at the end he was more worried about his legacy than boys being abused and he was at the center of the worst sex abuse scandal of all-time. It is absolutely reprehensible that anyone would honor this man! An investigation conducted by former FBI director Louis Freeh concluded in July 2012 that Paterno concealed facts relating to Sandusky's sexual abuse of young boys. The investigation also uncovered information that Paterno persuaded university officials not to report Sandusky to authorities in 2001. On July 23, 2012, the NCAA vacated all of Penn State's wins from 1998 through 2011 as part of its punishment for the child sex abuse scandal, eliminating 111 of the games Paterno had coached and won, dropping him from first to 12th on the all-time list. Keep drinking that blue & white kool-aide:)

Wow, really? Football first. You guys holding this event are a real bunch of dummies. You let the media tell you what he did was ok. Keep telling yourselves that he is some kind of hero. Shame on you. Tell the boys who were raped that!

Paterson didn't have the balls to stop what Sandusky was doing.( and neither did others) . And I thought it was just priests. Jim, you must think that the priests who covered crimes are ok too. It's the EXACT same damn thing.
