I don’t know if there has been an uglier scandal in my lifetime in sports than Penn State. Not steroids in baseball. Not Michael Vick’s dogfighting. Not O.J. Not anything. The minute young children get involved, all bets are off.
Penn State University fans from across the country descended on State College to pay tribute to football coach Joe Paterno. He died Sunday, just two months after a child sex scandal forced him from his job.
Penn State students and alumni are in mourning. The winningest major college football coach of all time, Joe Paterno, passed away at the age of 85.
