Penn State’s Joe Paterno Still Alive And Fighting For His Life

Former Penn State head coach Joe Paterno is in serious condition and fighting for his life at Mount Nittany Medical Center in State College, Pa.  He’s experienced some complications as he battles lung cancer.

Paterno is in such a dire battle that his family was summoned to the hospital last night and CBSSports.com erroneously reported at 8:45pm that he had died.

The Paterno family made it clear that the report was false.

“I appreciate the support & prayers,” Jay Paterno, former Penn State quarterback coach and Joe’s son, tweeted last night,. “Joe is continuing to fight.”
“CBS report is wrong. Dad is alive but in serious condition. We ask for your prayers and your privacy during this time”, Joe’s son Scott Paterno tweeted last night.

OH WELL! I couldn’t give a crap less. It’s ashame that he didn’t live long enough, to see the outcome of the shame & disgrace he helped coverup. He got the easy way out. He can rot in the pit for all I care. Life goes on.

DCar – Kinda harsh man… Not that I’m a Paterno or Nittany Lion fan but, Paterno brought decades of quality coaching with scores of players that got many life values from a man that, other than the fact that he should’ve responded more forcefully to the knowledge brought to him, was a pretty good man, mentor, coach, leader and philanthropist. This world would be a much better place with more men with that good of a track record. May he rest in peace…
