You can't have him as the face of your institution anymore. The statue woulf get vandalized if it stayed. It's going to be torn down either way.

I enjoy sports but not covering up for child molesters is more important to me. Screw the statue and screw the institution for what they allowed to happen. I mean seriously, they, including Paterno, hid a child molester so it wouldn't ruin their football program. Football was more important to them than those kids. Football? Really?

Yes he might have been a great coach, but wasn't a great man. If he would have turned Sandusky in a long time ago fewer children would have been hurt, Sandusky would be in prison for his crimes, and football would have made the changes they needed so that they would be ready for the next season. But because they wanted to look the other way more kids suffered and now the athletes and students have to deal with the consequences of their actions.

they took away all those wins that made him the winningest coach and therefore the statue had to come down because he was no longer the winningest coach.
