    That's awesome. They wouldn't even let him retire. Well deserved. While he didn't do anything illegal, he allowed something horrible to continue without doing anything to stop it.

    The right thing to do but still an extremely sad day in sports history...and American history for that matter.

    I don't think it's a sad day.

    It's a sad story and terrible that the kids had to go through all that crap and are having to relive it now.

    But JoePa being fired does not make this a sad day.

    Now it's time to clean house or at least fire every single person involved with the team when Sandusky was around.

    The man was a God in college football...the greatest figure in cfb history. Having to go out like this is sad.

    If really love psi he would have just stepped aside instead of chasing personal records and coaching out the season.

    Agreed. If you had knowledge that a friend of yours was stealing or doing drugs, then I can be more understanding of not wanting to rat out your friend... but r*ping 10 year old kids is sick on a different level. Even winning football games can't get you out of this one...

    As you said, the firing was well deserved.

    Big props to that one Penn State student that had the balls to say he agreed with the decision in front of that big angry mob and ridiculing reporter.

    Yea I just watched that.

    Then that idiot came in and said there's nothing more he could've done and didn't even know how many years his own school's coach had been around.
