As a lasting and irrevocable tribute to the standards of athletic and academic excellence which Joe Paterno voluntarily and steadfastly advocated and maintained for all the players who participated in his football program during his 46 year career as the head football coach at Penn State University. For those who have praised Coach Paterno's and Penn State's exemplary record of student athletic academic achievement, here is an opportunity to show the world that academic standards of compliance for student athletes across America will be enforced and maintained, for the betterment of all inter-collegiate athletic participation.

      Is this some kind of joke. Paternos rules are you have to cover for Pedophiles. And to be promoted, much like the Catholic Church, you have to be a PEDOPHILE. This petition basically says, that rules can be broken, you can do what ever you want, rob banks, kill people, mug people as long as you are a pedophile. If you are not a pedophile, than we will punish you. So if you break the law, better head over to The Second Mile.

      He was one of the greatest men of his time who held fast to the things he believed in and made sure "his" athletes did the right things!

      Because, as Joe Paterno knew, college football is college first, and football second.

      I am signing this petittion because not only does Joe Paterno deserve this honor, but the student athletes deserve to know how to live a good and productive life outside of athletics.
