Joe Paterno is gone but not forgotten. Unfortunately, what will not be forgotten is the probability that he was party to the coverup of some of the most lurid sex crimes imaginable. Certainly ever committed by a person who was himself a legend: Coach Jerry Sandusky. The witnessed scene of the burly, powerful Sandusky physically overpowering and sexually assaulting a terrified ten year old boy is enough to turn the stomach of a buzzard. By Paterno's own words that "in hindsight, I should have done more", he reveals clearly that he knew what was going on yet did nothing. So the University did what it had to do to preserve its integrity.
