Penn State alumnus (and NFL Hall of Famer) Franco Harris brought a cardboard cutout of Joe Paterno to his luxury box at Beaver Stadium for Saturday's PSU football game against Ohio.
The Paterno cutout held a sign reading "Due Process for PSU JVP".
We understand Harris' loyalty to his college coach, and he's entitled to express his opinion, but the cardboard cutout of Joe Pa may be a bit much given the circumstances. It certainly makes things a little awkward and uncomfortable.

BEST OF MAXIM
The guy on the left is a conservative talk show host named John Ziegler. The guy on the right looking like a slob is Steelers legend Franco Harris. Both men think Joe Paterno was unjustly treated by the NCAA. Ziegler, once fired from a sportscasting job for on O.J. Simpson joke, is from Pennsylvania and ended up in the Harris box at today’s Ohio U. game.
For some reason both...
The widow of the late Joe Paterno has arrived at Beaver Stadium for Penn State's season opener against Ohio.
Sue Paterno and a family member arrived about 15 minutes before kickoff and came in through an employee entrance.
It's the first game at Penn State without a Paterno on the coaching staff since 1949. Joe Paterno started as an assistant in 1950 before being promoted...
Penn State plays a football game today without Joe Paterno or his statue outside Beaver Stadium. You know the story and you had to figure fans wouldn’t forget their hero. It’s just that we didn’t figure the fans would remember with an impromptu memorial featuring a Paterno bobblehead and some flowers. But there it was this morning.
Never forget, Penn State, never forget.
Before the start of Penn State/University of Ohio college football game, I assumed that someone would bring a cut-out of former head coach Joe Paterno into the stadium but I didn't think it would be seen with former Penn State great Franco Harris.
Check out the below picture of Franco with the cut-out and the shot of the cut-out from his private box:

I know your life and career is signified by one magical “immaculate reception” that pulled victory out of certain defeat but Franco Harris just let this one go. Its over.
The former Penn State running back as taken the main(solo) defender position of Joe Paterno to the extreme by placing a cardboard cutout of Paterno holding a sign “Due Process for PSU JVP” in his box...
A lot of eyes were focused State College, Pennsylvania and Penn State on Saturday, as the Nittany Lions opened the team’s first season in nearly 50 years without Joe Paterno as head coach.
Even more though than the absence of Paterno, most want to know how the school would fare under the weight of some of the most serious sanctions ever levied against a major college football program...
Most everyone I know delighted in the fact that Penn State lost to Ohio from the MAC on Saturday. Serves them right, was the chorus from people rightfully outraged by Penn State’s scandal. Most right minded people recognize that Jerry Sandusky was the original doer of evil, while Joe Paterno, the Penn State faculty and the pervasive religion of Penn State football made the scandal...
(Eds: With AP Photos. Corrects to "worst" in headlines.) By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist It seemed almost cruel, as if Penn State hadn't already been punished enough.
Reality intruded on Happy Valley once again Saturday afternoon. This time it was on full display for 97,186 of the faithful at Beaver Stadium to see.
It was supposed to be a day to forget about scandal...
Hours before Penn State storms the football field for their season opener against Ohio University, Saturday afternoon, a photo is making the rounds which shows off Penn State's new football uniforms.The new uniforms, which are shown to be hanging in Penn State's locker room are a symbol of the university/football program trying to start a fresh chapter after the Joe Paterno...
Week 1 of the college football season is in the books. Let’s see what we learned besides the fact that Franco Harris was allowed to have a Joe Paterno cardboard cutout in his luxury box.
Alabama is still on top
Many people, us included, believed that Alabama was going to take a step back due to the players they lost. This was supposed to be a down year for this team. But after...
As fans gather around Beaver Stadium in anticipation of Saturday's long-awaited season opener, the overall mood around Penn State football is that of pride, perseverance and support - for both the current and former coach.
Hours before the official beginning of the Bill O'Brien era, tailgaters are tossing footballs through the parking lots, setting up their cooking stations...
