    Joe Paterno (1926-2012)

    Several sources have confirmed that Joe Paterno has died tonight, including Onward State and many local radio stations.

    Regardless of the scandal at Penn State he was a heck of a coach and in some way should be remembered for that as well.




    Could this thread be void of the scandal discussions? Let's keep this one for remembrance of the coach.

    He went fast. Can't believe he was coaching just 2 months ago.

    ESPN is still reporting he is in serious condition.

    @OnwardState - Penn State News Organization

    "Our sources can now confirm: Joseph Vincent Paterno has passed away tonight at the age of 85. http://yfrog.com/hwhkwpj"

    "Football players received an email minutes ago informing them of Paterno's passing."

    Agreed. Today we lost one of the legends of college football. I think we all expected him to go quickly after he quit coaching, but not this fast.

    For the past ten years or so, whenever JoePa and his coaching longevity came up, I said he kept coaching because he would be dead within a year of retiring.

    Well, I guess I'll provide some details that could debunk this as well:

    8:57 pm EST, Dan McGinn, Paterno family spokesman indicates that reports about Paterno's death: "Absolutely not true."

    Well I'd rather see the truth... Still have conflicting reports, the main source of the quote from their family spokesman isn't the greatest either (I personally would say less reliable than the Onward State).

    I think we have our answer. CBSsports.com took down the article saying he is dead.
