    PSU to Decide on Paterno Statue Soon

    Probably within the next week or so.

    A decision will be made on the future status of the embattled statue of former head football coach Joe Paterno "within seven to 10 days," Penn State spokesman David La Torre told CNN on Wednesday.

    Re: PSU to Decide on Paterno Statue Soon

    I just dont see how the university can keep this statue up. Yes the statue is in rememberance for what he did, but there is no way that people look at that statue and think about what he did in college football. The first thing they will think of this rape scandal. IMO, that is not something the university would want.

    It can be moved...to a "secure" location.

    Put it Jay Paterno's front yard so he can continue blindly worshipping it...

    They are going to "move" it for the time being I would bet. Sort of appeases both crowds. They aren't going to say they are taking it down permanently just yet. They are going to remove it until such time as the final consequences of this whole situation are known IMO.

    Call up the Goldman family and ask what they did with OJ's Heisman. Melt it down, use it as a doorstop?

    Re: PSU to Decide on Paterno Statue Soon

    The best idea Ive heard is just to turn it around as if to turn ones back. That should appease everyone, and is an apt description of his legacy from start to finish.

    Is the garbage dump considered a secure location?
