Open Thread: Life Lessons With Joe Paterno and Mike Krzyzewski

New, 22 comments


For those of you interested, I thought I would put up an open thread for the show on ESPN tonight. The show will start at 8 PM ET on ESPN, and then the second hour will broadcast at 9 PM on ESPNU.

Here's a blurb from GoPSUSports.

"Difference Makers: Life Lessons with Paterno and Krzyzewski," was taped June 20 in front of an enthusiastic audience of 900 in Penn State's Eisenhower Auditorium. The program will air Thursday at 8 p.m. on ESPN and continue at 9 p.m. on ESNU.

Paterno and Krzyzewski joined host Rece Davis of ESPN in discussing of variety of subjects, including leadership, teaching, values, the impact of family and rules changes they would be like to see implemented.

The Hall of Fame coaches, who have combined to win and 1,301 contests and six national championships, also took questions from the audience and from Duke students on the Durham, N.C campus via Cisco Telepresence technology.

A quartet of former standout Penn State and Duke student-athletes also participated in the special event to talk about the impact Paterno and Krzyzewski have had on them as students and after graduation. Former Nittany Lions Matt Millen and Michael Robinson and former Blue Devils Jay Bilas and Jay Willliams also took questions from Penn State and Duke students.
