From the photos trickling out, the scene in and around State College is interesting on Saturday night, as Penn State students and fans begin to digest the news that Joe Paterno's health is declining rapidly. A spokesman confirmed Paterno was in serious condition and experiencing health complications, with other reports indicating the former Penn State coach is gravely ill.
Hours ago, all was quiet near the statue. Now, the crowd is increasing in size, with some students digging the statue out from under the snow.
The scene at Beaver Stadium was incredibly eerie, as well, with a Penn State football video playing silently on the Jumbotron.

There's been no further updates on Paterno's health since the spokesman's initial statement confirming his condition earlier on Saturday.
