Save the seat for JoePa

When Tom Bradley took over as the interim head coach of the Penn State football program, he made a small but very powerful gesture of support for Joe Paterno. Joe always sat in the first seat on the bus. In reverence to Joe, Tom Bradley refused to sit in it or let anyone else sit in it. He simply said "That seat is Coach Paternos."

It is my hope that Coach Bill O'Brien will show the same reverence for Coach Paterno by making this a permanent tradition. To simply "Save the front seat for Joe." Since 1966, the only other person to sit in that seat on the bus was Sue Paterno, and that was on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 as the bus followed JoePa's hearse in the funeral procession.

Joe said "if you take care of the little things, the big things will take care of themselves." While other debate big things like renaming a street or stadium, lets get this little thing done. This "little thing" would be a "big thing" to so many alumni, fans and friends who loved and respected the man.
