IS JOE PATERNO SELFISH AND/OR PROTECTING HIS STAFF?

One theme put forth by Joe Paterno critics is that the coach is too selfish to retire.I’m not going to argue that point, and I am not going to necessarily agree with it, either.But, here is another spin: What if JoePa, who preaches and practices loyalty almost to a fault, is staying on the job to protect his staff?

Joe Paterno seems like he’s been coaching forever. In fact, I think he has. But it took until Saturday for him to finally pass Eddie Robinson to become the winningest coach in college football NCAA Division I history.

Whiteout at Penn State.

Penn State Gets Gift Win From Pathetic Illinois’ Special Teams, Offense

It was one of the ugliest college football games of all time. Certainly one of the ugliest Big Ten games. Not a good showcase of the conference on ABC’s national game. (The national media are going to have a field day ripping the conference after this one). Call it the football equivalent of the infamous 38-33 college basketball game played by these two schools in Champaign 2009...
