Joe Paterno’s name will forever be associated with college football. He is a legend in the sport and an American icon. Has the Jerry Sandusky scandal taken away from his accomplishments, though?When news broke last fall that Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky may have sexually abused young boys, many were affected — perhaps none more so than former Penn State head coach Joe Paterno.
