There were many excellent eulogies for Joe yesterday; they were all very poignant, I cried and I laughed. It goes without saying that Joe was one of a kind; he was a character the likes of which we will never see again. My heart goes out to the Paterno family, instead of turning inward and asking for privacy they said goodbye to the family patriarch and included us. I personally want to thank Phil Knight for his eulogy. He said what everyone wanted to say. As an outsider and a person of enormous success and influence, he had the courage to tell it like it is; "There is a villainous tragedy," Knight said, staring out at some 12,000 mourners, "that lies in that investigation, not in Joe Paterno’s response to it. . . . It leads me to this question: Who is the real trustee of Penn State University?" Phil Knight...JUST DID IT!!!
