Just like Jay Gatsby, Joe Paterno fouled up a fine ending. And, in retrospect, the story was over long before the last page.
The circumstances surrounding JoePa’s firing make up the main part of the story today, but now is the time to evaluate a life, not just a part of that life.
Joe Paterno, who racked up more wins than anyone else in major college football but was fired from Penn State amid a child sex abuse scandal has died. He was 85.
Penn State’s trustees ultimately decided to fire the Hall of Famer in part over what they said was his failure to go to authorities.
Well, a lot of the Jerry Sandusky scandal comes down to credibility and Joe Paterno.
Former Penn State head coach Joe Paterno spoke publicly for the first time since his firing to the Sally Jenkins of the Washington Post.

McQueary testified Friday that he believes he saw former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky sexually molesting a boy but said he wasn’t 100 percent sure it was intercourse.
Joe Amendola says he didn’t mean to refer to a gay sex phone line when he said anyone who believes university officials thought his client raped a 10-year-old boy and did little about it should call 1-800-REALITY.

This Penn State stuff has tested my mettle, my willingness to engage and my belief in our species.
Freeh said his team “will be looking periods back to and including 1975,” but added they are “not conducting a criminal investigation.”
