Joe Paterno statue has been removed from in front of Beaver stadium. Penn State President Rodney Erickson released a statement stating “ I now believe that contrary to its original intention, Coach Patreno’s statue has become a source of division and an obstacle to here in our University and beyond. For that reason, I have decided that it is in the best interest of our university and public safety to remove the statue and store it in a secure location.” The decision came after the 10 day report by former FBI director Louis J. Freech concluded that Patreno as well as other top administrator’s at Penn State concealed sexual allegations of child sexual abuse against Jerry Sandusky. FYI thisandthtreaders!!
