Some have acknowledged that Penn State is on trial for how the university failed to deal with events surrounding Jerry Sandusky.
Coach Joe Paterno, although revered for decades, was fired for failure of leadership, according to the board of trustees.
If Paterno failed to provide proper leadership in what is being called the biggest sports scandal in history, his legacy is forever tarnished.
It appears a statue of Paterno was prematurely erected outside of Beaver Stadium.
Perhaps that is why statues usually are put up decades after someones life is completed.
Paterno will be forever linked with this scandal, and so will the statue, which stands prominently outside the stadium. Penn State should consider at least moving it to a less prominent location, if not removing it from campus all together.
No one associated with these abominable events should have a statue.
