Mrs. Paterno Opens Up

Penn State Live ran a feature yesterday that we couldn’t pass up. In a feature titled ‘Heard on Campus: Sue Paterno,’ an interesting fact was shared with a class by the football coach’s wife:

“The reason we have a listed phone number is because Joe doesn’t answer it. There have been problems with that, but his main reason for that is the parents of players. If something happens, he wants them to be able to get in contact with someone.”

— Sue Paterno, addressing students Tuesday (Dec. 2) in COMM 497G: Joe Paterno, Communications and The Media

I didn’t know that, nor did I know that there is a course dedicated to Joe Paterno, taught by Michael Poorman.

I hope that this doesn’t open up the Paternos to ‘Is your wide reciever running?’ prank calls!

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
