But after watching ESPN’s outstanding 30 for 30 “Broke” there is not much else to say. I guess you could say it is sad, scary, disturbing or any of another dozen negative thoughts. I did not expect to be overwhelmed by it since this is a field with which I have a lot of direct experience.
With the passing of Joe Paterno, there is a lot of debate about his legacy and how he will be remembered? It is a shame that a historic coach with over 400 victories even has doubts that his main accomplishments were in mentoring athletes, helping them graduate and teaching them to become better people. Yet, due to a variety of factors (some of his own doing and some outside of his control), Paterno’s reputation will bear a permanent tarnish.
