Do You Think Joe Paterno's Statue Should Come Down?

Do You Think Joe Paterno's Statue Should Come Down?

Penn State says no decision has been made on the future of the Joe Paterno statue outside Beaver Stadium.

The university has received pressure to remove the statue of the late coach following the report that found Paterno helped cover up child sex abuse allegations against former assistant Jerry Sandusky.

Officials said Sunday trustees and administrators haven't decided what to do with the sculpture.

The report says they avoided reporting the incident because they didn't want bad publicity. It says administrators reversed a decision to report a 2001 incident to authorities after the athletic director discussed it with Paterno.

Sandusky is awaiting sentencing on charges he sexually abused 10 boys, some inside Penn State's football facilities.
