The NCAA is likely to impose the death penalty on Penn State, and rightfully so.
There was a time when I thought Paterno was one of the greatest. Since the report was released I no longer feel the same about Paterno. If Paterno, and others, had stepped up other children would not have been raped by Sandusky. There seems no way around that fact.
Penn State can do what it damn well pleases. I don't have any connection to the school. It isn't my fight. You do wonder, however, how the school and its supporters will feel after the NCAA imposes the death penalty for 3 or 4 years. Penn State will never be the same. It may well be that the university will one day want to put Paterno behind them and move forward. It is my opinion that his statue will be more of a bitter reminder than anything.
