Penn State legend and former football coach Joe Paterno has not been entirely erased from the university's campus. After allegations of child sexual abuse against retired coach Jerry Sandusky, the statue of Jo-Pa prominently displayed outside Beaver Stadium was removed. His likeness, once on everything from Milano bread billboards to refrigerator magnets, is hardly seen on campus.
Paterno went from king to a man with a sullied reputation hanging in the stocks. Penn State, however, has decided it is now safe to celebrate the career of the former football coaching phenomenon.
Once again a trending topic on Twitter, tweets about Joe Paterno are mostly negative.
