Earlier, I asked for some respect for the family. Right or wrong, his actions in the scandal is something that will be judged over time, not today. I am no Penn State alum, but just a decent human being. I will ask one more time for some appropriate thoughts on this subject out of respect for the man's family. If that is too difficult, we will lock it up.
may you rest in peace
RIP
Guess after the scandal he had nothing to live for. RIP.

I wonder how his soul is being judged right now.
Cause of death was a guilty conscience.
Its funny how all you guys are paying your respects now, were all the same people who were trashing him when the whole Sandusky news broke. And Sus that was the most ignorant and insulting comment that you could possibly say about Joe right now

Just because he died it doesn't erase what did or didn't do in his life.

So if he says it later , it's ok?
A sad day for collegiate athletics, just think how many pros he groomed.

I half expected something like this to happen, people die pretty quickly on average after retirement. It's like once their career they defined themselves their whole life with is over, their body just says "Ok, I'm done."

Bear Bryant the legendary Alabama coach did the same thing, retired while the winningest coach all time, then died a few months later. Always liked Joe Paterno and rooted for Penn State. I wasn't too happy about the Sandusky incident, he should have went to the police himself. He was Joe Paterno, he could have got something done. I am all for being a "rat" if there is a victim involved in the crime.

How about: it's not being judged....he's just dead.

He had lung cancer....he was going to die. This wasn't a "died of a broken heart" BS that I'm already starting to hear.

This man does not deserve any of the sympathy he's getting to be honest.
