"Success without honor is an unseasoned dish; it will satisfy your hunger, but it won't taste good."
- Joe Paterno
If Coach Joe Paterno had evidence or allegations of wrong-doing and simply followed the letter of the law in addressing it, then he has failed to live up to his own standards. It has never been enough, for example, for Penn State to have a graduation rate that was acceptable to the NCAA; Coach Paterno saw to it that Penn State's graduation rate for student-athletes far exceeded the minimum required.
As an alumni of Penn State, I've been proud that Joe Paterno represented my university so very well over the years. Until now. I expected more, again, because he taught Penn Staters such as myself to expect more.
Coach Paterno should resign, immediately.
