Press box for Paterno

Just back from a quick trip. Of course I read the news about Coach Joe Paterno's injury online and shook my head.

The coach should be away from the action during practice and on game days he should be in the press box.

It's great that he continues to coach, but he's not quick any more and he's a sitting duck out there. I have no doubt that he could spot problems, and offer learning moments, while away from the action.

The coach is fortunate that he wasn't hurt seriously. Now seriously he should take care of himself.
