Big 10 Scratches Paterno Off Of Trophy

Yesterday, the Big 10 Conference announced that they are taking the name Joe Paterno off of the Big 10 Championship trophy. The Big Ten said that the crisis at Penn State, which led to Paterno's firing as coach Wednesday night, prompted the decision to remove his name from the Stagg-Paterno Championship Trophy. The trophy will be awarded Dec. 3 at the inaugural Big Ten football championship game at Indianapolis. The trophy will now be called the Stagg Championship Trophy. "We believe that it would be inappropriate to keep Joe Paterno's name on the trophy at this time," Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said in a statement. "The trophy and its namesake are intended to be celebratory and aspirational, not controversial. We believe that it's important to keep the focus on the players and the teams that will be competing in the inaugural championship game."

Well, as all of you know, I am not a Penn State fan or a JoePa fan what-so-ever. I will watch a PSU game just to see if they lose. So take this in and soak it up because you may never see it again. I think the Big 10 is acting a bit quickly here. No one has been tried or convicted of anything that I know of. It appears that the Big 10 is acting a bit prematurely here in wiping Paterno's name off the trophy. To the Big 10 I say, "Shame on you"! There is no denying what big nose Paterno did on the field as head coach at Penn State. He is the winning-est college football coach of all time, a record that may never be beaten. The only thing JoePa is guilty of that we know of is that he did not call the cops after going to the A.D. to tell him about Sandusky. That is it! He didn't rape those kids, he didn't shower with those kids and he wasn't involved with horseplay in the shower.

It appears that the Big 10 along with Penn State University is trying to cleanse themselves of Paterno. There have been reports that Penn State will remove the big statue of JoePa from the outside area of the stadium. Of course, it will take a crane just to get the nose part out of there. It appears that the damage control plan is to just remove anything Paterno from campus in hopes that everyone will forget who he is. As much as I don't like you big nose Joe, I think this may be turning into a raw deal for you. I can't believe I just wrote that! Yes, you turned your back when you were needed the most, but that does not trump the fact that you were one of the best college coaches of all time.

    I saw this on ESPN today. I think THIS is wrong too. I agree fire Joe Pa, Fire McQueary, Send Scumdusky to jail. But you can not discredit what he did on the field as a coach for all those years. I am a HUGE wrestling fan (yes everyone take a moment or 10 to laugh.... ok I'll continue) and I say its an absolute travesty what Chris Benoit did to his family (Double murder suicide anyone?) However, I still don't think you can take away what he did in the ring as an athlete and entertainer for all those years and yes should be in the WWE wrestling Hall of Fame. I hate to say it but eventually the Big Ten will regret this decision. Just a random thought I had.

    Well im no joe pa fan as well , however this university and the big ten is making a ginormas
    mistake here. even if joe did err in judgment like the leader of trtg said he did not rape a child. to the big ten go to hell with jerry to the board of trusties what is your motive? and to the university grow a set put a stop to the smoke screen what the hell are you hiding?
    tim although i am a wrestling fan and remember chris benoit as well there is no way in hell i could ever vote a murderer into any hall of fame after the crime was committed.
