It was the right thing to do.

I see on a few PSU blogs that some are threatening to riot. Or saying the students will. They seem to be thinking that not all the facts are out. They don't get it right now.

The PSU boards I've seen are 95% angry about this, arguing that they fired him before "the facts" were determined.

Their love for the man and his legacy is understandably blinding them to some obvious facts: primarily, when a cluster**** of this magnitude threatens an entire university's reputation, the heads at the top of the totem poll must roll. What he was or was not told by that GA is beside the point - he did not pursue the allegations as far as most the country deemed his moral obligation.

Allowing him to be the face of the program for 4-5 more games on national television this season would have sent the worst kind of message if PSU wants to be serious about correcting these wrongs, showing remorse for allowing them to happen.

This BOT press conference is insane too. Like every reporter allowed to ask questions seems to be a pissed off Paterno fan from the student paper? A lot of respect for the board members following through with their convictions, despite the hate sure to come their way.

Now there are some rumors of rioting. Wow. It just got way worse. The ego maniac should have resigned today. Now that would be on his hands too.

The press conference was unreal. Must have been a lot of student journalists there.

The problem, Joe, is that what happens in the locker room shouldn't always stay in the locker room. Some things are just a little too important for that. Children were being raped, Joe.

I loved what I thought you stood for, but it turns out that you were willing to stand by for more than I ever imagined.

Damn, Joe. You had all the power in the world at your disposal. You could have stopped this evil. What the hell were you thinking?
