I won't link the article to ESPN for obvious reasons but this was the first point in Ivan Maisel's 3-point stance. It's nice to hear that some of the people are willing to entertain the idea that MAYBE, JUST MAYBE it might not have been a coverup but a massive mistake instead.
1. Even if you’re sick of Penn State, read "Paterno", Joe Posnanski’s long-awaited biography of the late coach. Posnanski enjoyed unprecedented access to Joe Paterno through the last year of his life. Paterno told him to "tell the truth," whatever he saw. Posnanski lays out what he saw and learned. Where some believe there was a coverup, Posnanski portrays an elderly man who never understood -- even a decade ago -- what Jerry Sandusky had done until it overtook Paterno's 61-year career. It is exhilarating to read of Paterno the man and gripping to read of his downfall. For the fair-minded reader, the book will begin to rehabilitate Paterno’s image.
