It is a sad fact that Paterno is being treated as a scapegoat ... PERIOD. (in my view).
Many many students are very upset over the firing of JoePa and are showing their ire by the thousands as they gathered on campus, and downtown.
Past football players that were contacted and to the man, have stated they owe so much to Paterno. He was the coach (and teacher), that led by example and taught them to stand on their own feet and be responsible citizens. He and his wife's contributions to the community can't be measured.
Joepa will be sorely missed. It is sad that his legacy will be tainted by his lapse in "moral responsibility".
He deserves better.

Joe Paterno spent 61 years of his life at Penn State (41 years as head coach), and to have his legacy be "he was fired" instead of "he resigned", is a real disservice to all of the thousands of young men (and women) who he touched. JoePa IS Penn State.
In my opinion, JoePa was used as a scapegoat ... PERIOD.
To be judged for one decision out of the hundreds of thousand decisions he made while at Penn State is completely unfair (even though he made the wrong decision and could have done more).
His legacy is evermore tarnished .. and, the students have every right to be outraged and angry about the way that the trustees handled the whole situation.

My little sister graduated from Penn State just a couple of years ago, and let me tell you, it is not pleasant being around her at the moment due this whole situation with Paterno.

This makes me angry. Very angry. I hope Penn State's football program sucks balls from here on out. What would make me even happier is if the whole football team walked out and refused to play unless Coach P is re-instated. But I'm just angry and bitter like that. LOL Its not right, no matter how you look at it, to make JoePa the scapegoat for what someone else did. SMH
Not liking me will always be your problem. Never mine.

Another fallout of JoePa's firing ????? info
Another fallout of JoePa's firing just might be the loss that Penn State suffered at the hands of Nebrasla. Many touts were favoring Penn State since the game took place in the house that Joe Paterno built. I don't know about others, but .. it seemed to me that Penn State's football team members were NOT playing at their best. If I were one of the men that had to play after my hero and mentor was dealt a death blow the way that the trustees did to JoePa, I would NOT have taken to the field ... I would have walked in protest (but that's me). I grant you (understanding the kind of man Paterno is, he wouldn't have wanted any of his boys to have let his firing affect them on the football field.
Paterno's son (who is an asst coach at Penn St), had tears in his eyes as he was interviewed after the game. For sure, I don't know where he mustered the wherewithal to work the sidelines, knowing this was the first time that JoePa wasn't on the sidelines in many a year.

I think that the students at Penn St deserve criticism for their actions (Re. Paterno) but the US educational system and the teachers and professors deserve more. What I see is a failure to instill reasonable morals and ethics; and to teach analytical thinking process.

So I suppose the history that man helped make for Penn most have gotten lost in all this legal shuffle...
Hope their entire suffers in his absence, I feel for the students and players but to hell with the rest of them.
