Nike Takes Joe Paterno’s Name Off Child Care Center
It was just a matter of time considering the information that came out today about Joe Paterno covering up for Jerry Sandusky before things like this started to happen.
It will be a domino effect, so there will be a lot more to come.
His legacy is ruined and he has no one to blame but himself for that.

Statement by Phil Knight…
“Other than my parents, my college coach, Bill Bowerman, was the biggest influence in my life. Bill Bowerman and Joe Paterno shared some great qualities. Throughout Joe Paterno’s career, he strived to put young athletes in a position to succeed and win in sport but most importantly in life. Joe influenced thousands of young men to become better leaders, fathers and husbands.
According to the investigation, it appears Joe made missteps that led to heartbreaking consequences. I missed that Joe missed it, and I am extremely saddened on this day. My love for Joe and his family remains.”
