Joe Paterno Statue Taken Down At Penn State!

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Sunday morning the famed 7-foot-tall statue of Joe Paterno was taken down from outside the Penn State football stadium. Penn State President Rod Erickson said he decided to have the statue removed and put into storage because, “It has become a source of division and an obstacle to healing. I believe that, were it to remain, the statue will be a recurring wound to the multitude of individuals across the nation and beyond who have been the victims of child abuse.”

Monday morning at 9am the NCAA will issue sanctions against the university, whose top officials were accused in a scathing report of burying child sex abuse allegations against  now-convicted retired assistant Jerry Sandusky.
