Joe died over the weekend.
As you might expect this reignited the “conversation” regarding his departure from Penn State late last year.
As to the contention that Paterno should, first and foremost, be remembered for his contributions to Penn State football and the university more generally: horseshit.
While dear mater instructed that if one had nothing positive to say about an individual one should stay their speech, it is worth noting the lady was married to an abusive drunk who was free with his fists, and her silence earned her, and those around her, nothing but enduring pain.
Fuck Joe Paterno for countenancing child rape, now and forever.
