Photo: There Is A "409 Forever" Tribute To Joe Paterno Outside Of Beaver Stadium On Senior Day


Following the terrible Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State, the university removed the statue of iconic coach Joe Paterno that once stood outside of Beaver Stadium.

Today, on Senior Day at Penn State, a fan-made memorial has been set up to honor Paterno, surrounded by "409 Forever" signs -- the amount of wins that Paterno had before the sanctions. The memorial is located where the former statue of Paterno stood:
