Joe Paterno Interview At Fight On State

Yours truly didn't get a chance to watch the Joe Paterno presser this afternoon, but FOS has posted video of an interview with coach outside afterward, so check it out.

Joe was dismissive of concerns about his health and said he's fine. He expects to be on the sidelines all season.

That said, David Jones of the Patriot News is a little skeptical...

This is the first time I've ever seen him and thought he really looked and sounded old in August when these meetings have taken place. Usually, he seems refreshed and recharged. He's funny and quick-witted.

Today, he spoke slowly and softly, almost like the aged Joe Frazier.

...

When asked if he planned to walk the sideline this year, he said, "I hope I'm ready to go. I think I am."

Boy, based on what I'm seeing now, I can't imagine it. The difference in him is noticeable.

I guess we'll all find out soon enough.  Fingers crossed...

We'll have more on Joe Paterno's presser after I get a chance to watch it later tonight, so stay tuned.
