Penn State Scandal: Paul Posluszny On Firing Of Joe Paterno

Paul Posluszny is one of the more recognizable faces of the Penn State football team over the past decade, so it was only a matter of time before someone caught up with him and asked for his opinion on the ever-developing Penn State scandal and the firing of Joe Paterno. Brent Martineau of Action News Jacksonville caught up with Posluszny, and he seems as crushed as you would expect him to be.

"My four years there, he was an unbelievable role model," said Posluszny.  "That's part of the reason I went to school there.  Joe Paterno, the legendary coach, the legendary person.  What he did, right or wrong, I don't know.  I wish I had all the information then I could say."

He also spoke about the scandal as a whole.

"When we had the opportunity to be right, to solve a problem - we didn't," said Posluszny on Wednesday.  "It hurts.  This atrocity happened on our campus."

This situation doesn't just affect the students and athletes currently at Penn State, it affects all of the alumni and people associated with the University.
