Paterno's statue outside Beaver Stadium has to come down, because otherwise Penn State would be celebrating a man who helped talk school officials into leaving Jerry Sandusky alone in 2001, letting an alleged pedophile escape detection for another decade, giving that alleged pedophile -- and it's not "alleged" anymore -- unfettered access to campus for another decade.

Jeeps. If the CNN story is accurate, after taking down the statue, the Big Ten should also consider severing ties with Penn State. Let them go where they will, where they can but they don't deserve to benefit from the proud tradition of the Big Ten. And, yes, I'm being serious.
