Joe Paterno Gives The Media Exactly What They Want—Ratings

The media is looking for ratings and Joe Paterno is looking for a rock to climb under—plain and simple. Any news outlet which states otherwise is playing you for a fool and I strongly suggest you not give them the satisfaction. A story published today by the TusconCitizen.com posed this particular question to its reading public, “Is ESPN guilty of stalking Joe Paterno?” Now...

Justice is Served at Penn State

I still remember seeing Joe Paterno deceive the public. In late June of last year, I was flipping through channels and I happened upon an ESPN special called, “Difference Makers:  Life Lessons with Paterno and Krzyzewski,” a program that was exactly what it sounded like:  Joe Pa and Coach K sitting and talking about morality, coaching, family and ethics from the saintly pedestals...

Penn State students chant support for fired coach

So add Joe Paterno's name to a far-from-complete list of athletes who plummeted from grace in recent years: Tiger Woods, Michael Vick, O.J. Simpson, Magic Johnson and Barry Bonds. Their sins were not the same, nor were their fates. But they were all banished to a kind of purgatory...

The sadness of Happy Valley

I didn't grow up a college football fan. I just think that if you are from WNY, your college roots are about as deep as a houseplant. I'm not trying to say we are stupid, but I don't run into too many UB or Buffalo State alumni who are all about their old stomping grounds. Of course, if you went to Syracuse or a major college, that's a different story. I graduated...

Amid Scandal, Penn State Football Trying To Move On

For the first time in more than four decades, the Nittany Lions are headed into battle without Joe Paterno leading them.

Ashton Kutcher Apologizes -- Oops, Paterno Did What??!?

Ashton Kutcher attacked the Penn State Board of Trustees for firing Joe Paterno last night -- but there was one little problem, seems Ashton didn't know about Joe's misdeeds. Right after Paterno got the chop, Kutcher tweeted, "How do you fire Jo… Permalink
