Pope JoePa

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Joe Paterno offered to retire after the season. Instead, the board of trustees decided he and Penn State president Graham Spanier needed to go immediately. Then the students rioted. This is understandable but I think the students' anger was misdirected. Paterno and Spanier were wrong not to act to prevent more atrocities. Their punishment is mild compared to the years of suffering experienced by Sandusky's sex abuse victims.
