Joe Paterno has announced that he will be retiring at the end of this season. This announcement comes after the recent news and allegations of sexual abuse by some of Penn State’s former coaches. At 84 years old, it is sad to think that some of the blame has now shifted onto Paterno. He did what he was supposed to do. He reported it to the Athletic Department, who chose to do nothing. Give the guy a break, he’s 84. Probably went and told the department, then it was nap time. After that he probably forgot all about it. And if he didn’t, is it really his fault for relying on his bosses to do the right thing? Don’t get me wrong, this is a terrible situation, but at the end of the day, Paterno is the only one who said anything.
