[Live Blog] Twitter Reacts To ‘The Paterno Legacy’

Earlier this month, ESPN released a trailer for a new E60 documentary about Joe Paterno’s legacy. Now, “The Paterno Legacy” is here.

While Onward State already got its hands on a screener cut of the documentary last week, it’s time for the general public to see for itself how Paterno is portrayed. With that, many will likely take to Twitter to express their opinions throughout.
