I had this ready to go last night, but I waited until it was confirmed.
An icon passed today.
Paterno is up there with the likes of Bear Bryant and John McKay among others. Paterno was a great football coach who sadly stayed longer than he should have.
There will be time to look at his legacy, both good and bad. I will leave that to others...
I will leave it at that.
Our thoughts go out to the Penn St family.
