NCAAF  > General NCAAF  > No Legendary Status For Paterno

Coaches from my era who are true icons of college football like Woody,BO,Switzer,Bryant,Osborne,JRobinson would have beat the living hell out of their own coach had they been presented with the sickening revelation of what took place at Penn State.The president, the AD, and the authorities would have been left to deal with the individual after they were through with them.I had respect for Paterno and would have had no problem mentioning him along with the above men,but not after this tragedy.He had a chance to stand up against what's wrong and failed."Say it ain't so Joe" You had your chance and you kept quiet.Shame on you!

Jeepers, WB. Coach Hayes punched out Charlie Bauman for having the nerve to intercept a Buckeye forward pass! I can't imagine what he would've done if he'd found out a pedophile was on his coaching staff. We live in a cowardly world today. 'Way too much political correctness.

Yeah, and that Switzer guy was a true icon too. Under his watch the players, not the coaches, were the ones doing the raping ... and drug dealing.

I'm of the cynical opinion that if one were to dig deep enough, dirt could be found on all iconic college football coaches, though I might get a spirited argument from COC fans where Tom Osborne is concerned.

I am sure J Edgar Hoover had the knowledge of this...wait can I link Sandusky to DiCaprio without using Bacon? The Basketball Diaries and Growing Pains I am sure of a connection.

This is hilarious that I keep reading people say he did nothing. WOW. Some people really read what they want, huh?
