Joe Paterno rescued a former player’s son from a grim fate

(Credit: www.cdn.turner.com) Throughout his decades of coaching at Penn State before he sadly passed away in 2012, Joe Paterno saw thousands of players come and go. But that certainly doesn’t mean he forgot them. Pete Curkendall played for the NIttany Lions in the 1980′s, and probably would have been an elite NFL player if it wasn’t for his lack of work ethic.

RIP TailGreat: 3 ways Penn State can fix its latest self-inflicted PR blunder

My initial reaction to TailGreat’s cancellation can be found on my Twitter feed. Since then, I’ve mostly moved on from the shock with a hint of rage… mostly.
