Let's start by stating I have never been a fan of Jay Paterno. I disliked the nepotism and failure to adapt that he represented. I assumed that coaching was a stop along his way to something in politics or journalism. In fairness it probably was part of his plan if things hadn't gone so wrong this year. But I'll say this - Jay has faced scorn of the media (and of most fans going back to his clipboard days) and through it all has kept his head high and been there for the players. I am still not convinced he belongs on the sidelines on Saturdays in Happy Valley, but I'm convinced he deserves a place at Penn State. Maybe the Athletic Department (couldn't be worse than Joyner) or on the Board of Trustees. Wouldn't that be sweet justice for him to be on the BOT? So to Jay Paterno, you say Penn State has been your life and I believe you. Your actions since November 5 convince me you belong at Penn State, something I never thought I'd be convinced of.
