Can’t say that I am surprised by this.
The only thing the man has known for six decades is Penn State and that was snatched away from him, so he doesn’t have much to live for.
Plus the stress over the way he was dismissed can’t be helping anything.
Former Penn State coach Joe Paterno is in serious condition after experiencing health complications from lung cancer.
“Over the last few days Joe Paterno has experienced further health complications,” family spokesman Dan McGinn said in a brief statement Saturday to The Associated Press. “His doctors have now characterized his status as serious.
“His family will have no comment on the situation and asks that their privacy be respected during this difficult time,” he said.
Joe Paterno could have done more in the Jerry Sandusky scandal, but let’s not forget it is Jerry Sandusky that is the monster and Paterno has sixty years worth of positive things he has done for the Penn State community.
Thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
