The entire Legacy of Joe Paterno and Penn Stae Football is Ruined
Sad to say it, as a die hard Penn State football who was extremely proud of the rich of tradition of winning football and doing it with a coach who was "above it all" when it came to compromising the academics of his players, staying out of controversial incidents that seemed to plague other schools that Penn State and Joe Paterno symbolize.

Joe did a lot of good, gave money to school library, was one of the lowest payed top twenty big time coaches, had one of the highest graduate rates in division II and all along acted so humbly.


But, there was a secret at Penn State..
That secret could take down the entire football program.

So, even though kids were molested, and he knew who was doing it- repeatedly- and still bringing children on campus, to games and at player events- Joe did nothing.

Never reached out to the victims or their families.
Never wielded his power to banish Sandusky from campus, or the football facilities where he was aware incidents occurred)
went to bed at night knowing kids were hurt and that more kids were at risk...and did nothing to stop it.

So the bottom line- Joe knows football, Joe lived football, Joe was good at winning games. But as a human being, and a role model and the man that lifted higher on a moral pedestal than his peers...
In that regard he was A Fraud.

Take down his statue...take down his saintly pictures and accolades of his humanity and charitable heart.

He did not win the one big game that counted more than all the others.
He could have saved kids- he could have stopped it- and he punted instead.

Game over, Joe Paterno loses.
