Joseph Vincent Paterno, 1926 - 2012

[UPDATE: Penn State is now reporting the death of Coach Paterno.]

What an emotional roller coaster ride yesterday was, am I right? I won't get into my personal feelings on what happened (though if you follow me on Twitter, you can likely put it together). For now, let's continue to monitor the situation and pray for our beloved Coach Paterno.

Sources that I consider very reliable, which seems to be a misnomer anymore, confirmed to me last night that the end isn't far off. We know Joe is surrounded by friends, family and loved ones of all kinds. We have no interest in breaking this story, but will certainly have news updates when credible information is released, either by our own sources or by actual members of the Paterno family.

Stay strong, Coach.
