Joe Pa verses the NCAA

August 11, 2009

The NCAA has finally done it…..
They have made the great Coach Joe Paterno mad….


Coach Joe Paterno is entering his 60th year at Penn State….
Jo Pa started as an assistant coach in Happy Valley in 1950….
Then he became Head Football Coach of the Nittany Lions in 1966.

Joe Pa has seen it all….
He has coached against the best ever in college football…..
And he currently holds the record for most victories of any Division I coach in college football history……

And as a side note: Joe Pa is a class guy…..

So why is Joe Pa angry with the NCAA?

At a recent press conference covering the first week of practice at Penn State
Joe Pa went off the script as he often does…..
He stated that he feels that the NCAA is punishing Florida State too harshly by removing 14 victories over the recent “investigation” by the NCAA into academic fraud by a limited number of student athletes.

More specifically in punishing Bobby Bowden with the removal of 14 victories…

Coach Joe had this to say about the NCAA’s decision to vacate 14 wins from Coach Bobby and the Seminoles….

“The NCAA is going to do what it’s going to do, but I would hope they would not take away 10 or 12 wins away from him (Bobby Bowden). I don’t think that’s fair.
He coached the team he had; they played against people, and they won.
They ought to be wins for them”

After this statement Coach Joe was asked what he thought….
About the manner in which the NCAA conducts their investigations and his opinion of President Myles Brand.
He demonstrated his opinion with a simple gesture known by all….


I couldn’t agree more Joe…..

Your final installment of the Pre-Season College Football Extravaganza will be out Friday….
