Hundreds of fans held a rally outside the home of noisy Paterno. He showed maps, with some family members, and thanked the public for coming.
"It's hard for me to say how much it means," the 84-year coach said. "I lived there. I had people like you and the girls."When asked if he was still the coach, Paterno did not answer, but said a young woman who was with his arm around him. "This is not the time"When he returned to his house, Paterno stopped and pumped their hands above their heads, shouting: "We are ..." "Penn State" replied the crowd. "We're always going to be Penn State," Paterno said. "I'm proud of you. I've always been proud of you. Beatrice, Nebraska."
In practice this afternoon, officials quickly put plywood on exposed fence to block the vision of photographers in the area. Paterno, who earns about $ 1 million per year of school, was head coach for 46 years and the staff of the Pennsylvania State University for over six decades, and old school values ​​permeate every corner of the program .
Beyond that stretch, Nittany Lions have won two national championships, but unlike many other Division I centers, the program to avoid clashes with the NCAA. The team generates millions of dollars of annual turnover in the presence of rights, television and sponsorship, but it is stubbornly stuck to the basic white and blue uniforms, which are now the most recognizable college football.
All these things have inspired pride in the region and fierce loyalty to Paterno, who is the winner in Division I and one of the most respected in any sport. The exalted status has been the subject of lively discussion in recent days among students on campus construction workers on the street and the board PSU.
A person familiar with discussions trustees' Paterno said that there is support for "eat", but was not able to assess whether the government should take action. The same person said Spanier has also lost the support of the first board meeting Friday. A person who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity subject.While praised sent Spanier at Penn State, an official American Council on Education, said: "The central question of the government, whose task is to preserve and protect the body, not the rearview mirror.

The witness, Mike McQueary, is now receivers coach for the team, but he was a teaching assistant at the time. McQueary said Paterno about the incident the next day, and the coach announced that Curley and Schultz, who in turn reported Spanier. Curley, and Schultz is accused of perjury or failure to notify the authorities of the incident provided by state law.
The two men, and Paterno, testified that they told Sandusky behaved inappropriately in the incident in 2002, but not so graphic account McQueary a grand jury of State.
The same jury decided the evidence that Curley and Schultz, whose role at that time also gave him control of the campus police, is not credible. Pennsylvania Attorney Linda Kelly said Paterno has not been studied, although the State Police have rebuked him and other Penn State officials are not doing enough to stop the suspected abuse."As you know, children who were victims, I think we should pray for them," Paterno said Tuesday night. Sandusky, 67, spent three decades on the staff of Penn State, before his retirement in 1999, but continued to use the school and athletic facilities where prosecutors allege that he molested several children recently as two weeks. It is often held football camps for youth in the PSU campus and maintains an office in the complex of the Nittany Lions "on the main campus.
