The Penn St. Nittany Lions football program is crumbling. It's no surprise to see the New York Times reporting longtime legend Joe Paterno will not remain in his position for much longer. The Jerry Sandusky scandal and cover-up is simply going to be too much for anyone connected to the program to survive. Everything must be burned down.
A Tuesday press conference, at which Paterno was supposed to address nothing but football, has been canceled after it became clear absolutely nobody wants to talk about Penn State football right now.
Paterno's exit has been pending for literally decades now. This is not the way anyone ever dreamed he'd go out. From calls for his immediate firing to calls for him to resign at the end of the year, it's the only way the Paterno regime can possibly end.
Typed this through tears. This is a disaster, with at least eight victims plus hundreds of thousands affected in some way, and not a single person has yet offered to take charge of the cleanup or explain what went wrong.
