Penn State Police Report Paternoville Sign Stolen

Can significant days on Penn State’s academic calendar just be normal? The first day of Thanksgiving break brought the unfortunate news that Joe Paterno had lung cancer. The beginning of winter break coincided with a post-practice fight between Matt McGloin and Curtis Drake which left McGloin concussed. Now, yesterday, at the beginning of spring break, news broke that the sign for Paternoville outside Beaver Stadium was knocked down by a driver and stolen.

Campus police said that surveillance cameras indicated this occurred around 4 a.m. on Tuesday. The vehicle is believed to be a gray or silver sedan and also knocked down another sign while driving on grass.

A few additional notes can be found here. Hopefully more details come out shortly and police get to the bottom of this. If anyone believes they have any important information regarding the sign, University Police can be reached at 814-863-1111.

“The sign was more than just a description of Paternoville,” said Paternoville Coordination Committee Public Relations Officer Jeff Lowe. “Those signs wrap around Beaver Stadium describing various traditions and historical moments for Penn State football. For Paternoville to have its own sign is an honor that we will always cherish, and for it to be missing is very disappointing.”
Obviously this is nowhere as bad as cancer or physical violence, but really uncool move by whoever did this.
