Paterno bio quick read, but little new insight - a good review

5

Ben Brigandi f the Williamsport Sun-Gazette wrote an interesting review of the new Paterno book. He shares an thought that I have had regarding this whole mess. Joe just didn't spend much time worrying about Sandusky. He was focused on football. "All I can say there is that the book confirmed my theory on Paterno, that he didn't do more because he was not just a Hall of Fame coach, but a Hall of Fame compartmentalizer. The book says how Paterno kept a blue line in front of the football practice field, and that when they crossed it, nothing mattered except football. Paterno wanted his players to concentrate on the game when they crossed that line, not their classes, girlfriends or problems. And I think Paterno spent too many of his final days inside that blue line, not worrying about the problems of the Sandusky victims who might have used his help after 2001, and too much on the game of football." Brigandi's point of view is what I would hope most "sports reporters" would've had regarding IT. He doesn't have to be sensational because he works for a small paper that relies on local sales. He isn't trying to make a name for himself.
