BOT Nomination Ballot


I received my BOT nomination ballot today, filled it out, and submitted. While my first 2 votes went to conventional candidates, my third was given to someone who is not an official candidate: Joseph Vincent "Jay" Paterno, Jr.

I'll preface with the obligatory "I didn't think he was the greatest QB coach" line, but over the past few months he has really shown his true identity, and his father's fingerprints are evident in the way he presents himself. Honestly, I could not think of a better candidate for Penn State at a time like this. I know that there are many qualified candidates who are running, many of whom would be excellent choices for the BOT, but Jay has given his life to Penn State, and I wouldn't mind seeing that continue, provided he is willing.

Now, I am fully aware that the chances are he would graciously decline the nomination if he were chosen as a candidate, but in that case I feel it would be a nice symbolic gesture to show how much the Paterno family is really appreciated. And on the off chance that he does accept the nomination, best of luck to him - and the existing BOT as they sweat possibility that the son of the man they so calously fired may become one of their colleagues.
