Bob Molinaro, in the local rag:
Evidence and his harshest detractors scream that Joe Paterno abused his power. But who gave him his power? Fans, administrators, media. Us. Anybody who went along with the idea that a football team and its coach could be bigger than the university. People are talking about what to do with Paterno’s statue. It couldn’t be a more trivial debate. Shouldn’t any thinking person understand that things are out of whack when schools start building statues of coaches?
