This will be relatively short. I do agree with the firing of Joe Paterno after the shocking week at Penn State University. In 2002, after he was approached by the graduate assistant who knew of the assistant coach’s gross inappropriate conduct, Joe Pa should have gone NOT to the Athletic Director nor even to the head of the school, he should have gone to THE POLICE! He was morally and (most importantly in this case) legally obligated to do something more. Instead the assistant coach’s actions were covered up. It may be easy to say… “In hindsight….” Well… in my eyes, that does not excuse the suffering of the 25 (I believe) victims of the crime. The 61 year coaching tenure of the most winning and one of the most revered coach’s in college football history ended by scandal. Not a good year for Big 10 football off the field.
