It would be very interesting to see the Players thoughts on Paterno retiring. Those boys looked like they could use more meat on those bones when they played Ohio however lets give credit where credit is due I was really shocked when they beat the Cowboys. Maybe it is time for the old man to retire out with the old in with the new, a new broom sweeps clean although he is a successful couch I personally think he should step aside.

You go JOE. As long as you can and still enjoy it, do it. It will be a sad day when you finally retire but all good (great) things end. As for the Temple game, I agree with Joe, good for Temple, ehhh for PSU to play at the Linc. Although, it would have been the closest Austin Scott got to playing in a pro stadium, if weren't suspended that is.

Joe PA rules!! As long as the man has his whits about him and keeps up the great work he does, then I dont see why he should have to retire. He's a living legend and as long as he can contribute PSU will better for it.

I'm with you Lets Go Temple. Anyway it is def a dream. Great season for the Owls though. I am proud of them. We had 1 win the 3 yrs I went there so this is great. Good for both teams:This will hopefully help get PSU a bowl game, and will be good for Temple to have a sold out stadium, probably the first time the current Temple players have ever played in front of that many people. GO OWLS!

"For the first time, the 80-year-old Paterno will face one of his former players as head coach on the opposing sideline."

Didn't they play Temple last year and Golden was the coach?

Paterno was off the field after one of his own thugs crunched him if I recall correctly. So he was not on the sideline.
GO OWLS. Put these convicts in their place!
Too bad that PSU, Pitt and Temple are not the nucleus of a true Eastern conference. The Big East is garbage now.

Golden was coaching, but remember Joe got hurt and was out that game. So technically this is their first meeting.

None of his players have been convicted, they have been charged only.

That is incorrect, there have been convictions. The school conveniently kicks them off the team first. Notably, LaVon Chisley was convicted of the murder of another student. By then he was off the team, but the football program brought this killer to the campus in the first place.
That is about as moral as somebody resigning from a president's administration before pleading guilty.
PSU = GANG OF THUGS

Ah, Norbert, my kind of emoting pap and blatherist...don't go changin'

"Conveniently" kicks them off the team first...I'd say more like "follows the rules" by kicking them off of the team...you live in your own little world, do you not?

Then why haven't all those charged been kicked off the team? Some awaiting trial right now are playing.
No consistency, no morals, but lots of apologists.
The PSU football team brings thugs to campus and that is only increasing.
STAY THE COURSE!

Langston Carraway's body was found in his Patton Township apartment on June 5, 2006. However, Chisley had been booted off the Penn State football team BEFORE the 2005 season because of POOR GRADES.

You're just a worthless windbag, Norbert. If you want to talk trash, at least get your facts straight, you stinkin' hole.

Facts are facts, and you make my point for me. Chisley was not only a criminal, a killer, but he didn't belong at PSU in the first place because he couldn't cut it academically.
But hey, that's just a minor detail, right?

Only God can tell the course every man and woman will follow in life. Here, you had a guy (Chisley) who was given an amazing opportunity - to play Division 1 college football for a program that genuinely cares about its players and wants them to be successful, both on the field and in the classroom. Sadly, he didn't take advantage of it... he wound up failing out. It would be truly sad if that were the end of the story, but it wasn't. Rather than pulling himself up by the bootstraps, he went and killed someone, which is as tragic a tale as you can tell. No doubt.

What you, NorDick, don't seem to comprehend is that the series of events I just related does not cast a negative reflection on either JoePa or the Penn State football program. The coaching staff at Penn State, along with all the staff members in Student-Athlete support services, did everything they could for this kid... and he still chose the wrong path.

Again, please do us all a favor and get your head out of your butt, pal. You have no idea what you're talking about here. None.
