Joe Paterno Gets His Wins Back

January 16, 2015 | celebrity | Lex Jurgen | 0 Comments

A couple years back the NCAA declared that all the Penn State wins during the time Jerry Sandusky was boning young boys in the showers were null and void. It’s pretty easy to see how a coordinator raping kids means those touchdowns didn’t count on Saturday. It’s unclear what the impact of losing past wins even means. Do the kids who played at Temple in ’03 now jump for joy because some ten year old’s rectum got torn and their on field loss is now a forfeit win?  It did affect the record books which no longer named Joe Paterno as the winningest coach in college football history. Which was important to the Paterno family who felt Joe’s legacy was tattered merely because he thought forcible sodomy just made kids stronger. Some Pennsylvania senators got involved and convinced the NCAA to restore the Penn State victories. That’s sort of why we elect people and pay them. To fix the big ones. I haven’t read all the details so I haven’t got to the part yet where the NCAA gets more money. Or the part about the child abuse charities getting endowed. I’m just happy to know that Dottie Sandusky can go by Paterno’s grave and remind him that Jerry said none of this would ever come back on the program.
