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 was driving past the Hotel Sterling this past week and noticed that someone paved the part of River Street right next to the hotel. This new black top is right where they have it blocked off to traffic. ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME! They pave the part of the road where no one can go! They need to pave W. Market St right by the Guard building. I hit that pot hole the other day and lost a nut.
