    I understand that this forum isn't the place to debate Joe Paterno's legacy, but I feel the need to remind everyone that Joe Pa was in a position to help some of those victims and chose to cover it up like so many others. A tragic story indeed.

    Joe Pa was always very high on my list, untill last nov. It remains to be seen where he ends up on my list after all details come out.

    I personally find that statement to not be entirely accurate. That being said, this is not the forum for debate about it. Joe Pa was a legend no matter how you look @ it.
    The way the University handled his dismissal was to say @ the least, inept and did show how out of control the upper ecelons @ Penn State were in reacting to the ENTIRE situation @ the time. To Joe Pa, thanks. Thanks for your untiring devotion which you gave to the players and the school for those 60+ years. R.I.P. Joe Pa

    You heard right.
    Did you hear what he did for the ENTIRE University as a whole as well (personal donations in excess 0f $3.5 million)? Did you hear what he did over the years for alot of his players in terms of EDUCATION that they would not of had a chance to obtain if it weren't for him and his wife Sue? Did you hear of how many Academic All-Americans he coached over his tenure? Yeah, I guess he was a football coach..........................................

    I thought you didn't want to debate this here.
    Anyway, what makes a man a hero is different for some.

    By all accounts a good man and a good educator. Unquestionably, a great coach. Made a huge, huge mistake. I think Penn State made the right move in firing him but in the final analysis I think he left a positive mark on the Earth -- RIP.

    Backwoods, FYI this guy loves to "bait" confrontation. Don't waste your time bantering with him. There are some here who think he is comical, the rest have figured out he is a clown.

    My final comment, on a serious note; It's sad that many are missing Joe's ultimate lesson to everyone.
    Peace-

    If someone say’s he’s a great man, someone is going to try and shoot that down with the scandal, then someone is going to refute that again by talking about his accomplishments, then someone is going to play the hiding a child molester card again. It’s a sad situation for more than one reason.

    I feel badly for all those who thought so much of the man and are mourning his passing.
