K On Paterno

It was just a matter of time before someone asked Coach K about the Penn State situation.  So what did he have to say?

“Well, I think, unless you’re there, it’s tough to comment about everything. I just feel badly for him and whatever he is responsible for, it’ll come out and hopefully it’ll come out from him...I think one thing you have to understand is that Coach Paterno’s 84 years old. I’m not saying that for an excuse or whatever. The cultures that he’s been involved in both football-wise and socially, have been immense changes and how social issues are handled in those generations are quite different...But as we judge, remember that there’s just a lot there. There’s a lot, lot there. I think he’s a great man and it’s a horrific situation.”
