Re: Any Penn State fans here?
Back to Joe Pa again?
Paterno is not gonna retire soon. He promised the father of Anthony Morelli that he would be the coach as long as his son attends PSU. Morelli is just a sophomore so that is at least three more seasons. For most Penn State fans they would like to see Paterno coach as long as he wants. Some things at PSU are more significant than a win loss record, but I agree a change is needed.
Most Penn State fans understand that Paterno is nothing more than a statue.......a figurehead. He has almost nothing to do wtih playbooks, play-calling, or recruiting. Therefore I dont think he can be held responsible for the recent unsuccessfull seasons. However, I think todays athelete does not identify with Paterno. That hurts recruiting witch hurts your win loss record. Most atheletes today want a free ride. Paterno is very strict, and is more concerned wtih GPA and graduation rate. The NCAA needs more people like Paterno.
