He deserves every bit of scorn that can be levied his way.
So, too, do the rest of them.
Paterno was a horrid little man with no sense of decency or honor, as evidence by his conversations with other Penn State officials and his complicit behavior to cover up Sandusky's crimes.
Obviously, Sandusky is worse, as he committed the crimes. But Paterno is close.
Those that have insisted, in the past, that he's some bastion of integrity, have some serious egg on their faces.
Penn State should also receive the death penalty, IMO. Football coaches covering up crimes this serous with no thought given to anything other than PR?
The NCAA is there to protect the integrity of their fellow institutions. This is the most heinous integrity issue the sports world has perhaps ever seen.
