Too bad that things didn't work out the way that Joe Paterno wanted to go out. He is one of the 5 best college coaches of all time, ranking up with the best of the best. Watching sports center this morning and they talk about the influece that he had on all the young men that came through State College under his tutelage.
Sure, he ended with that scandal. What amazes me is that he and McQueary are the only ones who did anything, but even Joe admitted that he should have done more. I choose to remember him as a great influencer and a great leader.
The landscape has changed. Joe Pa is no longer with us, and college football is not as good because of it!
