Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny is a legend at Penn State, one the most well-known players to come through that program and blossom into a superstar at the pro level. On Wednesday, he spoke out about former head coach Joe Paterno and the scandal that rocked that school.
Appearing on 1010XL in Jacksonville, the former Nittany Lion had this to say about Paterno:
"Our legendary hero (Paterno) was flawed." Paul Posluszny #PennState— 1010 XL(@1010XL) July 25, 2012
"It hurts to have people we trusted the most, the leaders of the football team, the leaders of the university, make that mistake" Posluszny— 1010 XL(@1010XL) July 25, 2012
Posluszny was less philosophical about the NCAA sanctions placed on Penn State.
"NCAA penalties so much collateral damage. I think president of NCAA trying to destroy #PennState football," Posluszny— 1010 XL(@1010XL) July 25, 2012
He also expressed confidence that a number of players would stick with the program, despite the hit it suffered. Penn State fans will know more on the that front soon. A Wednesday-morning announcement is coming from players maintaining their commitment to the school.
