2. I never went to college but I always had respect for Paterno because his team never

 

seemed to get in any trouble. Now I find myself really upset with this man. He knew and did nothing. The higher ups knew and did nothing. The best thing that could of happened to Paterno was his death because people would be so very disappointed in him. His legacy means nothing.

3. I used to respect him too.

As a student at PSU, I attended several of his lectures and I can tell you, the man was inspirational; he could give a fantastic, uplifting speech. And, he always seemed to care about academics. The football players had to keep their grades up to play.

I am struggling with those emotions (what I thought I knew), with those I have for Paterno's involvement in the Sandusky coverup.

It really sucks.

5. My heart goes out to people like you because you attended his lectures and you are torn.

 

He really must of been a fine man. He just lost prospective I guess. Money makes people to things they normally wouldn't do. Funny I bet Paterno never let his children be alone in his company. Not once. Yet he didn't bother with other peoples children. Just like the catholic church and their pervert priests. Turn the other way.
