They won't take down Paterno's statue, but can they at least put a blindfold on it for historical accuracy?
To most folks, Paterno's stellar record on the field doesn't mean quite as much as it used to, now that it's known that he enabled a monster for years on end.
Previous to these revelations, the statue seemed a fitting honor to a man who had run a successful football program for decades without even a hint of impropriety.
Now, it's a slap in the face to the dozens (and maybe more) who were assaulted by Sandusky while Paterno turned a blind eye, and even actively prevented school officials from notifying the authorities.
This is just another example of why the problem really hasn't been fixed at Penn State.
The reason Sandusky was allowed to continue raping children for so long was the hero worship that occurred there, giving Paterno and the football program an air of invincibility.
Despite everything we now know about what happened, the statue remains.
As long as this culture of idolizing athletic figures exists, there is still the possibility of another Sandusky. Let's hope I'm wrong, but I'm not holding my breath.
