I'm at a loss for words:
"Joe Paterno’s a friend that I got to know professionally, and you can’t take away the greatness of this man. He was a great man. However you analyze this, you can’t erase all that this guy’s done. You can’t do that. Nobody can do that. I think when you come out of such a tragic situation, certainly involving children and the magnitude of this in our country from a media standpoint, I anticipated really what happened. I anticipated that they would do this. You’re not going to sit back there and say, ‘Well, just things happen.’ You’re not going to do that. They’re going to be firing, and people, they’re going to make statements and they’re going to point fingers, and that’s what I anticipated a little bit. But he was a great man, a good man. I’m sure he would, maybe if he” could “do it over again he would followed up a few things. But don’t take away all this guy did, and to sit there and blame him for all this, I think is wrong."
I thinking protecting a child rapist and enabling the rapist to strike again and again and again pretty much nullifies any good that Paterno did (but call me old fashioned).
Gary Pinkel, welcome to the SEC. You should fit right in. Glad you're gone.
I know I've uttered this statement before, but, just when I thought I couldn't think any less of the man ...
I know you're sticking up for your friend Gary but Joe has been demoted from icon to POS in most people's minds.
I completely agree; nobody can erase the fact Paterno hid a child molester for years for the sake of a football program
Was he drunk?
9 and 4 at Texas sucks!

Pinkie needs to realize he works for a university currently and is the face of that university.
Pickle supporting Paterno looks like Pinkle supports child rape.
Pinkle supporting child tape looks like University of Missouri supports child rape.
Very bad to make a statement, it's not just about you Pinkle. You represent a lot of people.

Being in the East missouri won't face anything close to the schedule aggie will see. I'm not impressed with a schedule of Vandy, Kentucky, Tennessee, So Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Florida will come back, Georgia is good but not great, same with So Carolina. All those teams would have a tough time in the big 12. Will get tougher in the years they play LSU & Bama. I think they have a tougher time with a Big 12 schedule.
Pinkel should shut up and have another drunk, at home.
The sad thing is that, besides Bowden, who has ulterior motives, I haven't heard any coach come down hard on Paterno. They're so worried about protecting their little fraternity that they won't come out and call a spade a spade. All you get is "coachspeak" a la Pinkel.
To really fit in he would've been 'paid' to say something that ignorant.
