I remember Joe Paterno as a great head coach who did good things for the University. I remember him as a good man who stood for the right things.  That being said I will not elevate him into sainthood just yet because I think what has happened the last few months has to be considered and investigated. So I reserve judgement for Joe in that regard till more facts come about. I never thought JoePa wanted kids to get hurt or let them but sometimes people make mistakes and dont handle things the right way. That being said this might have been or was a GRAVE mistake so I still have no problem with the way things went down in happy valley. Just like in any other profession if something bad happens under your watch then you got to pay the price for it even if it was a mistake. So for now my thoughts are that Joe handled the situation way too lightly. Maybe because he thought the situation was under control or maybe not. I dont know. But I highly doubt he didn't do more/enough because he could care less of the kids. Until any facts come out that dispute Joepa's character I will continue to think he was a good guy. I have a few more thoughts on some things.

This moving video tribute was created by current Penn State student Robbie Young. These images will last forever, like the memory of the great coach and even greater man that Joe Paterno was.

Remembering Joe Paterno

Ode to Joe

Earlier today, Joseph Vincent Paterno passed away of complications relating to his recent battle with lung cancer. He was 85 years old. His death is overshadowed by the sex abuse scandal at Penn State that has surfaced in the past three months. After Paterno's firing, the elderly man with the weak and withered voice that just about everybody recognizes was turned from legend to scapegoat. Now, 72 days after a night where students took to the streets to protest the legend's less-than-ideal departure, the legend himself is no longer with us.

I have always said that Joe Paterno would not survive more than six months after retiring. That's because he lives for football and for his University. I always said he, sadly, wouldn't survive. I just always hoped that I was wrong. And I was, as he didn't last three months.

I believe Matt Millen, former Nittany Lion and current ESPN analyst, said it best, and most around the country I believe agree: Joe Paterno died "of a broken heart."

In this Ode to Joe, there are so many things to discuss. I could talk about his 62 years as a Penn State coach, 44 as head coach of the Nittany Lions.  I could talk about two national championships, 409 victories, and countless images on the field. Or I could talk about the last three months, about Jerry Sandusky and the Second Mile and the child sex abuse scandal. But anybody who is close to the University or to the Paterno family knows that none of these would truly explain what a great man Joe Paterno was.  I hope to exemplify a different side of the man known as JoePa.

Championship Sunday

We are less than 24 hours away from the start of Championship Sunday in the NFL.

The New England Patriots try to return to the big game for the first time since their unbeaten season was stopped just short. They host the Baltimore Ravens, who are under the direction of QB Joe Flacco who has been criticized numerous times for his troubles on the field. They kick off at 3:00 pm EST.

The NFC Championship will kick off approximately at 6:30 pm EST in rainy San Francisco. First-year head coach Jim Harbaugh will lead the 49ers as they host the red-hot New York Giants. Eli Manning has been unconscious lately, especially in his connection with WR Hakeem Nicks.

We will break down both matchups in six categories: Quarterbacks, Running Back vs. Linebackers,  Receivers vs. Defensive Backs, Trenches, Special Teams, and Coach. Using these breakdowns, we will predict the teams that will travel to Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis.

Straight Retirement Homie

Randy Moss was the coolest NFL player ever. Period. I'm not the only one who thinks that. If you are pathetic enough like myself to google the most played teams for madden on xbox live or ps3, statistics will show it was whatever team Randy Moss was on. Thats right. For example in 2010, the most played team went from the Pats to the Vikings to the Titans. Saying something eh? I didnt post a write up on his retirement in august because honestly there was so much smoke about him coming back during the season. Safe to say he is done for sure. But then again you never really know in the nfl. Deion Sanders came back to play for the Ravens after he was retired for a couple years so its possible i guess...

Ya know even though I go to the Shenango-vally campus, I have to be the most villainized Penn State student around just because of my view on the scandal. I'm one of the handful of studens that believe Penn State got what it deserved and that students, alumni, and fans only gave a $$$$ and rioted because of the legacy of a their head football coach. Ya, ya, ya, he did alot for the university but the next time he pays for your tuition or gets you a job let me know. Justice for the victims is what Penn States should care about. But anyway...

BCS Bowl Predictions

In the final podcast of the 3SN Bowl Predictions Series, we analyze the five BCS Bowls. The 3SN team is split on all five games, with only Stanford getting a votes advantage over their opponent. 


Many questions must be answered to determine the winner of each game:
  • It's power and size versus speed and elusiveness in the Rose Bowl Game. Can Oregon's speed outscore the Badgers? Will Wisconsin's size on both the O- and D-line wear down the Ducks?
  • Will Andrew Luck have enough of a supporting cast to get his team to victory in the Fiesta Bowl? Will Oklahoma State be too down after not receiving a bid to play for the title?
  • In the Sugar Bowl, will the kicking game be spoils for Virginia Tech? Can Denard Robinson hang onto the ball enough for Michigan to get the win?
  • Which spread offense will be more high octane in the Orange Bowl? Will recent history continue to be good for West Virginia? Will it continue to be bad for Clemson?
  • In the title game, does a rematch mean anything? If Alabama wins will there be a split title? Can somebody reach the endzone? Which Heisman hopeful will step up? Will Tyrann Mathieu take one the distance? Will Trent Richardson lead the team? Will it be A.J. McCarron or Jordan Jefferson who makes the big play on offense?
