When the child abuse story broke out on the PSU campus, Paterno wanted to hold a news conference that he would address this, including making a statement that he'd resign. He never got that chance:
CNN article on Paterno
As we all know, Paterno was illegally fired as the Sandusky case wounds it's way in the courts with a possible trial set by June 2012. Sandusky had better hope he gets a court trial to be declared a decision rather than a withdrawal of all the charges. Because if all the charges get withdrawn, Sandusky better hope he doesn't die next to face God's court and Joe Paterno. Truth is, in God's court, those charges NEVER EXPIRE. So Sandusky better hope more than anything else, because some where on this earth, there's an island for him to live on for the rest of his life.
Until next post, may it be calm weekend.
