A legendary career came to a shocking end this week as Penn State fired its ironman football coach, Joe Paterno amidst a disturbing scandal. The Penn State football program has been turned upside down when information came out involving former defensive coach Jerry Sandusky and his inappropriate and quite frankly disgusting and disturbing sexual actions involving young boys in the Penn State football facilities. Mike McQueary will still be a coach for the Nittany Lions as they take the field at home against the Nebraska Cornhuskers this weekend. A move in itself that has raised a lot eyebrows and red flags. It was McQueary who was the key witness to the incidents in the shower room in 2002, it was McQueary who never contacted the police about it. Somehow, he still has a job, for now. The Jerry Sandusky Grand Jury testimony transcript was agonizing to read. The fact that Joe Paterno’s name is printed throughout it, will haunt the legendary coaches legacy forever.
As tragic and sad this scandal is to not only the football program at Penn State, but to the victims and their families, the show must go on. Joe Paterno, a fixture of Penn State football for more than half a century is no more. His legacy, crushed. His team, not his anymore. But life must continue for the Nittany Lions and they will be the focus of the sports world this Saturday as they play host to the ‘huskers at Beavers Stadium.
