The coach's blown call
Accept, for the moment, the truth of former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno’s version of his role in the sexual-abuse allegations involving one of his former assistants. Acknowledge his illustrious accomplishments, on and off the football field. Empathize with his family as he, weakened and at the age of 85, battles lung cancer. There is still no excuse for his failure to respond more aggressively to the allegations, which involved children.
