Penn State’s football team is getting back 112 wins wiped out during the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal and the late Joe Paterno has been restored as the winningest coach in major college football history.
Penn State was halfway through a four-year postseason ban handed down during the summer of 2012. The NCAA rescinded some of the scholarship sanctions last year.
With one Joe Paterno statue in storage, fans of the late Penn State football coach are commissioning a new one to be placed across from the university.
PSU fans shouldn’t be upset that O’Brien took the Texans’ job. His two-season tenure at Beaver Stadium gave the Nittany Lions’ program something it hasn’t had for a long time. It gave it normal.

Paterno estate attorney Wick Sollers said the suit was to be filed in state court in Centre County, home of Penn State’s flagship campus.
Sandusky said in interview excerpts broadcast Monday that a key witness against him misinterpreted him showering with a young boy in Penn State football team facilities more than a decade ago.
Sandusky is expected to give his account of the encounters that landed him in prison and discuss former boss Joe Paterno.
As if the declaration has merit or meaning, the last, semantic line of defense from the Paterno Apologist is, “We’ll never truly know what happened.” We know enough. More than enough.
“What we found was that in many respects, with regard to Mr. Paterno, the report was incomplete, inaccurate and speculative about his role,” former U.S. Attorney General Dick Thornburgh told WFAN host Mike Francesa.
The family’s critique, released Sunday, argues that the findings of the Freeh report published last July were unsupported by the facts.
Breaking more than a year of silence, Sue Paterno is defending her late husband as a “moral, disciplined” man who never twisted the truth to avoid bad publicity.
