Propping Up 'Old Coots'

Not to be outdone by the Phillies signing 46 year old Jamie Moyer to a two year contract.....

Penn State just re-upped 'old coot' Joe Paterno for another 3 years. The fossil will turn 82 next week!

"If we can work out something that they are comfortable with and I'm comfortable with before the bowl, fine," Paterno said. "I just get tired of recruits asking me, 'How long are you going to be there?' But most of them are fine."

I know football players, particularly 18 year old ones, are pretty dumb, BUT that's a pretty stupid question.

After 82 years on this overheated planet, I'm right sure that Joe ain't *all there* right now.

C'mon already.

I can just see JoePa on life support, in a puddle of drool, ten years hence as STILL the head coach of the Nittany Lions because *recruits want to play for him*.

Joe staying on is an act of supreme arrogance. He should step aside and give another guy a chance.

Come on-he just delegates everything anyway now. Do you really think he does his own recruiting? Did he come up with their new high flying offense? Of course not. He is just a figure head. He is the President Bush of CFB. His offensive coordinator plays the role of Cheney the evil mastermind.

Slow out

You sound like a JoePa apologist.

You aren't Italian are you?

They love JoePa in South Philly...if only because his name ends in a vowel!
