PSU Gives In: Paterno Statue Is Coming Down

That was quick.

While these kinds of debates are likely going to continue on for several years, Penn State is going to at least put an end to all of the questions about the Joe Paterno statue on campus; it iscoming down, CBS Sports is reporting.

This may not be what some of the students want, but it is probably the best thing for the school moving forward as they try to put the Sandusky scandal in their rear-view mirror as fast as possible.

It is a purely symbolic move, but it is important because it shows that Penn State is trying as hard as possible to own up, take responsibility, and make changes to ensure that something like this never occurs again.
