The achievement of six decades, and the entire adult life in the university's commitment to advancing the mission will be more cases of child neglect and sexual violence committed by Paterno Jerry Sandusky and sin can not carry. These are the things that brought him to Paterno that this is not fate. Sandusky does not have to.
"It's a tragedy," Paterno, a statement of his retirement, which the university on Wednesday morning, announcing that it was. "It's my life, Jesus was great, and with the benefit of hindsight, I wish I was not over." Paterno's legacy built on the idea that the highest standard will be branded with the stigma of defeat to test our faith. It's easy and cheap white socks that play the most famous American in the underlying weakness. But if we do that JoePa good and right, and some of them, I pray you can not trust, we can believe in?
More than 62, post 46 seasons and coach, Paterno and his players and his university itself is held at a higher level. Evidence that the "grand experiment", he said in his youth, who rules by the athlete who has earned this area, and classroom structure can best college football game. Paterno may be arbitrary. It must be the most sacred, that you can. But behind all the attitude and Paterno stood for, such as virtue, honor, as, and wild game, and is expressed through violence, and completely captivating college football.
Paterno weeks shy of his 85 birthday gala, and all that was not so little, so as never to stand for. Paterno also bore his body started to betray him. Aside to work on his contemporaries, he can not thrive under pressure. Darrell Royal, only the elder Paterno two years, 1976 in Burns. Bear Bryant died in 1983, his insides and eat it to alleviate the shortage.
Bobby Bowden, Paterno offered a win-win seasons over a decade as a result, got the 2009 to set aside enough to win when he stops. Omar said on the football field, Paterno will not be low. The State party was a Penn 46 8.1 log tail. Since I turned 78 this year, the university, who asked him to resign and he refused, Paterno past 66-20 (.767 winning percentage), and the BCS bowls that are trained. He won 409 games, a great history of college football more than any other coach.
In recent years, as you press box, his body's weakness to a donation from a number of games will be coached. But the bottom line in this business, Paterno days until he reached the train stopped. In fact, he does not close the old asphalt. Paterno did his graduate assistant Mike McQueary said in March 2002, it failed to import. Paterno, like many of his generation, and such immoral actions behind closed doors and that the state failed to detect any agreement. He is charged with the crime as a community Referred Sandusky's indescribable. Nothing can be translated for a long period of time.
Briefly, this is a societal change, a good thing. Pennsylvania is a public response to the complaint, and to be more precise, what I did, about the violent nature of some of his victims. Visits and small, and the crime that affects the psychological impact of perverse holiday - you do not visit. Since the state of Pennsylvania, Linda Kelly, Attorney General, Sandusky, November 5, the results of a juror, from craze growth of this kind usually reserved for the planned Hollywood or Washington.
And angry public. The public wants blood. Loud and deep moral superiority and long-term cries. Paterno can not do what? Answer is no less real for being cruel - all evidence of the past, we are plain to see. Paterno, who disregard the accused's record high is around 62 years cover. This is the standard deviation of coordination and bureaucracy of risk for young boys to be difficult to reconcile. Paterno did not know, but we believe that a young son and a Sandusky forced to do it does not just strain credulity, and it eviscerates.
Paterno remains a blur to a failure of the pure and the law on its reputation can not be repaired. Sandusky and his decision to step down because of neglect, which satisfy the public appetite. "I look into the case by development, I grieved and said," Paterno. "I'm sorry, call the children and their families, and their comfort and relief." It's a sad story and the stunning success of the U.S. 20 Views last century. Brooklyn child grows from the Italian - American American play of the most influential. He was president of the supped. The university tested. And career that will be celebrated instead of shame.
