This book is written for those of us who love Penn State Football and who never doubted JoePa, or have gotten over the false accusations about Joe Paterno. After some soul searching, the real PSU fans and Paterno fans are back. I am so pleased to be among them. This book does not talk much about football games but it recounts in summary terms the great football legacy the coach's coach left behind. Ask yourself if a bad situation happened to you and you told your boss the whole thing and he promised he would handle it the right way. Would you not believe him? Why others in their witch hunt thought that Joe Paterno should not act like a normal human being in matters outside his primary occupation is a conundrum. I believe that all men have enemies and that is why the bad news continues. Joe Paterno was not only an outstanding football coach; he was a great man. My father loved him and so do I. There are many malevolent people in life. We meet them every day. Joe Paterno was not one of them! He could not stand himself if he was and would have died a wretched soul twenty to thirty years sooner. God kept JoePa around to help America and PSU; not to hurt anybody. The Sandusky scandal ripped at JoePa's heart and soul because he trusted his boss to do the right thing. We'll see. It may have been misplaced trust. His boss pleaded guilty. It sure hastened JoePa's death. The last trial / pleadings were in March 2017. JoePa is a clean spirit and his new home is heaven. You will not be able to put this book down.
