ESPN has reported that Joe Paterno has lost his battle with lung cancer and passed away at the age of 85. Although we are a Boston sports blog, it would be unethical not to recognize such an inspirational individual. Even though Joe Pa's reputation has taken a pretty big hit over these past few months, his legacy will forever live on and will be remembered as one of the best college football coaches in the history of the sport.
The RTB team wants to send out prayers and thoughts to the Paterno family. They have gone through more devastation in a short amount of time then any family should ever have to go through.
