The best thing the Penn State community can do in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal is to try to move forward. The cloud created by the mess will loom over State College for quite some time (possibly forever), but unless you’re making an effort to help the victims harping on the past seems senseless.
Naturally, not everyone feels that way. According to the student-run Penn State blog Onward State, the billboard you see above was recently erected at Penn State in support of Joe Paterno. By using a different shading for the words “cover up,” the people responsible for the message couldn’t have been any clearer.
Paterno undoubtedly did a lot of great things during his 61-year run at Penn State, but the things he didn’t do overshadow most — if not all — of it. Dwelling on the past successes of the football program in this type of manner does nothing to help the situation.

That is Temple’s record against Penn State.
October 18, 1941.
That is the last time Temple beat Penn State.
The Philadelphia media tries to make it into a rivalry but does it really qualify as one?
When something is good, we try to tear it down. When something is poor, we try to build it up.
That’s clearly the case with these two programs...
1982 gameday pictorial for Penn State vs Temple.
Penn State had been looking forward to the 1982 season for months.
