HE’S 83. Maybe this should be Joe Paterno’s last year in Happy Valley. Because he’s got too much pride to step down himself, and nobody wants to see a coach die on the sideline. “Paterno sounded very much like something he never has — an old man. It was stunning and melancholy and not a pleasant sound … It’s just that his speech was slow and slightly slurred, and his intellect seemed a little dulled and delayed — something that’s never, ever been true.” He’s rarely fundraising anymore, it’s even more rare to see him on the recruiting trail (his last big “sighting” was trying to keep Terrelle Pryor in state). Phenomenal run, Joe. It’s been real. [Patriot News; photo via Getty]
