RIP Joseph Vincent Paterno! Penn State and College Football Will Miss You!

By Kenrick Rampersad

RIP Joseph Vincent Paterno!  A legacy, a blemish, the wrong ending of an American story.  How the loss of his life long work led to a broken heart. The SOP, NCAA, and millions of football fans around the world say, "Farewell Joe Pat, we will miss you."

"Joseph Vincent "Joe" Paterno (pronounced /pəˈt" rnoʊ/; December 21, 1926 " January 22, 2012) was an American college football coach who was the head coach of the Penn State Nittany Lions for 46 years, from 1966 through 2011. Paterno, nicknamed "JoePa," holds the record for the most victories by an NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) football coach with 409 and is the only FBS coach to reach 400 victories.[1] He coached five undefeated teams that won major bowl games and, in 2007, was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as a coach." - Wikipedia
