Did You See This? Game program from Paterno's last win

Penn State Game Program


From this day forward, Joe Paterno’s final win is Penn State’s 35-10 victory over Wisconsin on Nov. 22, 1997. That’s the case because Mark Emmert and the NCAA vacated all of Penn State’s victories from 1998-2011 as part of their sanctions against the school in the wake of the Freeh Report findings. @Ben_Jones88 tweeted a photo of the game program from that now historical1997 game, and, interestingly enough, its headline reads: “End of the Line.” See the photo in this post.

Paterno finished his career late last season as the game’s all-time winningest coach, with 409 wins, one more than Grambling’s Eddie Robinson. But 111 of those wins were erased Monday, meaning Paterno drops to No. 12 in all-time wins (298).

I’m impressed that the NCAA thought to include this sanction. JoPa is as guilty as Sandusky in my mind.
