As a Christian woman, I pray that JoePa asked Our Lord for forgiveness for any and all wrong doings in his life. I realize this is a very difficult time for his family and I hope they find peace.

Gosh I hope it's not something as painful as say, a 9 year old feels while being shoved up against a wall and anally raped by an adult male. I sure wouldn't want old JoPa (spit) feeling any pain like that.

Nope, not me.

Prayers to the family at this difficult time. I guess the guilt was too much for Joe. All I hope is that he asked forgiveness to God.

I actually feel sorry about this. It’s a shame he ignored what was right by those children. His football players were like family and he gave it everything. I didn’t think he would last long without it. Very sad. My prayers for him for forgiveness and for his family in this most difficult of times.

I am so confused. Why was a nine-year old boy in a Penn state locker room?

It sounds as if Paterno reported the incident according to the existing rules and regs.

Really, help me out here. The whole sad thing doesn't make good sense to me.

What a truly sad end to a truly great life. Nobody will know just how much/little he was involved in the Sandusky scandal but he seemed to me like an outstanding individual for so much of his life. To see it end under such a cloud of suspicion is deeply distressing.

He was brought there so he could be sexually assaulted, pardon me, raped by a man Paterno knew to be a pedophile. That's why.

The man created a "Foundation" for the express purpose of recruiting and grooming prepubescent boys who could then be loaned out to wealthy donors to eiither this "Foundation" or to PSU.

When he was fired I told my son he would be dead in six months. To have the coaching taken away from him the way it was, I knew it would kill him.

Sorry, I had no idea this was going on.

It seems there is a larger reason for the terrible tribulations visited upon this man.

I presume you are certain of these allegations. I do not follow college football. It seemed that he was receiving favorable press.

See I was hoping he'd be torn to pieces by a mob of the victims and parents of the victims of the monster pedophile Paterno spent decades enabling and protecting.

Maybe that's just me.

My Great Grandmother use to tell us that there are times in life when rising above condemnation pleased God in a special way. Not sure if she was right or not but I think this is definitely one of those times.

As certain as anyone can be with the veil of secrecy which a former Centre County District Attorney was possibly about to pierce before he mysteriously disappeared a couple of years ago. Body found hundreds of miles away.

While I question his judgement concerning Sanduski, that is between him and G*d. I pray that he is at peace.

Why is that factoid not getting press, or did it and I missed it. Did they ever find the killer and a motive?

The beam in your own eye.

Had he even a tiny shred of decency, he would have either made sure Sandusky never had access to the kids from The Second Mile again, or if unable to do so resigned from the board of directors there of.

Your pretentiousness is an insufficient cover for Paterno.

I hate that he may dodge wheel of earthly justice by escaping the slow moving grindstone.

Oh well.

God will make all things right.

No killer found, no motive made public.

The powers that be have been in denial mode that there is any connection, but there wouldn’t be many links in the chain between a well connected “wealthy donor” and a hitman.

Gricar was declared legally dead last year, but his body was never found. Have you heard differently ?

When it was reported he was suffering from lung cancer, they also stated it was non-life threatening and treatable-what a bunch of nonsense!

I'm confused, and you seem to know so much.

Did Paterno ever see a child in the Penn State locker room? I'm not even asking if he saw a child being sexually asaulted. I'm talking about just seeing a child there. Do you know?

KMA. I've not the one who allowed a monstrous pedophile to remain on his staff for decades.

Are you seriously comparing wanting to have sex with a woman to protecting and covering up for a man who anally raped young boys for decades?

Oh I forgot. You're Catholic. You're completely comfortable defending organizations that cover up pedophilic rape of God only knows how many kids for decades. Sorry, my mistake.
