“He died as he lived,” the statement continued. “He fought hard until the end, stayed positive, thought only of others and constantly reminded everyone of how blessed his life had been…. He was a man devoted to his family, his university, his players and his community.

      Paterno was such a great guy in so many aspects… I will forever believe that he found himself in an impossible situation to deal with and that he ultimately did (or didn’t do) what he felt was right. Penn State handled this entire affair terribly as far as I’m concerned. After such a career, it’s an awful shame Joe had to spend the last months of his life in such turmoil. Rest in Peace Joe.

        I am torn here. Joe Paterno should be remembered for his legendary coaching not as the fool who allowed such horrors to be perpetrated on his watch.

        He was wrong to not speak out – he was covering his own ass

        I am angry at him, very angry

        I am so very sorry he died but dammit
