    I hope you find peace and I hope in the end you didnt let the haters bring you down. I knew the moment he left his dream job he wouldn't last long. I hope the fucking douche bag college leadership that fired him ROT in hell.

    yeah, i had that feeling too...it's like the couple thats been married for 60+ years dying within hours/days/weeks/months of each other.

    but then again he had cancer so never know if it wouldn't have taken him anyway

    Sorry he died, but no sympathy from me on being fired.
    His handling of the whole deal makes him an accomplice in my book.

    Pretty much. I hope his end came easy and pain free, but in regards to his job he got what he deserved. His passing from this life doesn't pass the buck for his lack of action.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    His conduct in the sexual assault cases was despicable. The firing was the correct call, regardless of how great a coach he was.

    I once heard one can get a lot of praises, but if one bad thing happens to them, it is all over.

    Wonder why Paterno, when it was Sandusky who is the pervert and caused Paterno to be fired?

    Because Fred Phelps and his family are almost as sick and twisted as Sandusky. On top of that, they are publicity whores.

    RIP Coach Paterno, and peace to all of his family, friends, and former students.
