The Once-King of Penn State. Check out this interactive timeline of Joe Paterno’s career including the highs and lows of his time at Penn State. This was originally published in November after that scandal nearly brought down the school’s football program but is really cool to look at now. [nyt]
Penn State response on report of Joe Paterno death says the initial report was “corroborated by multiple sources” but now a family spokesperson has “denied our initial report.” The report appears to be the basis of a CBS Sports report declaring Paterno dead. [Twitter]
