Not surprising to me, but finally Joe Paterno gets the respect he deserves: Coach of the Year. Good job Joe. I never doubted you. PS. Happy birthday Joe Pa!
Why I love Joe: he makes me want to be a better person.
(from ESPN article):
Now Paterno is in vogue again. Maybe more than ever.
The doubters who cried for change, who thought Paterno was hurting the school by refusing to let go, have had to eat their words.
But don’t expect Paterno to call out his critics.
“To be honest, I really have never thought that way. It’s not my nature,” he said. “I’m not a vindictive guy. I don’t read the papers. I realize the media’s got a job to do and I realize the alumni, if they’re interested in your program, are going to die when you lose and so forth, and a lot of them get carried away.
“What good does it do for me to say, ‘I told you so.'”
