At first I was stunned. But I can tell you this: There is no celebrating in the Bowden household today. This is a very tough day for college football.
Former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden • Upon learning that fellow college football legend Joe Paterno had been stripped of 111 victories — making Bowden the winningest coach in NCAA history, by default. Bowden spent his entire career trying to fight Paterno for the mark, but Paterno finally prevailed after Bowden was forced out following a weak 2009 season. Bowden, by the way, supported the taking down of the Paterno statue, as a way to take away a constant reminder of Sandusky.

Joe Paterno’s memorial service: A strong defense against a grave offense
Paterno, remembered: During Thursday’s memorial service, numerous speakers remembered the longtime Penn State figure’s life, and his time as a coach, with great reverence, showing respect for the man at a time when his legacy has been clouded by controversy. Speaker after speaker — family, friends, and disciples — spoke reverently of him, emphasizing a legacy that goes far beyond that of an unspeakable scandal, one that improved many lives and the scope of a university. Perhaps none said it better than Nike chairman Phil Knight: “If there is a villain in this tragedy, it lies in that investigation, and not in Joe Paterno’s response.” Penn State football, under Paterno, was known for its great defense; the defenders came out strong Thursday. source

CBS Sports’ original report on Joe Paterno’s death failed to source Penn State student-run blog Onward State. This was a screen grab I captured shortly after CBS Sports pushed the story.
CBS Sports is now sourcing the Penn State blog.

Bad form, CBS. EDIT: Did some backtracking, and it appears that they did link the original tweet from Onward State but didn’t explicitly cite them in the text. Is that enough of a citation?
