This Joe Paterno video is making the rounds, especially among Penn Staters. Its premise? Paterno is a saint and could never do wrong Joe Paterno, and to an extent other Penn State administrators, were made scapegoats in the Jerry Sandusky saga because it was convenient for the school and perhaps people as high up as Governor Tom Corbett. It also focuses on the media coverage of Paterno, rather than Sandusky himself.
Most of you already have your mind made up, and I do too. But, there are still many who believe that Paterno, somehow, was completely unaware of what his right-hand man was going right under his nose. The truth? It’s probably somewhere in the middle. You can judge for yourself, though. Or just laugh at Franco Harris.
