Joe Paterno's Son

Chokes Up After Game:

'Dad, I Wish You Were Here'

11/12/2011 12:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF



0_2l5zhgwx_0_s14r3zwgJoe Paterno's son -- Penn State's QB coach Jay Paterno -- just broke down during a postgame interview, tearing up as he addressed his father to the camera ... claiming, "Dad, I wish you were here. We love you."

Joe Paterno -- who was fired as head coach earlier this week following PSU's massive child abuse scandal -- did not attend the game.

Penn State lost to Nebraska 17-14.

For heaven's sake, spare me! He acts like daddy dear is so innocent, junior needs to fact some facts. Daddy didn't go to the cops; he is just as guilty of covering this up as everyone else. Puuuleez!

Boo freakin hoo. Daddy kept Sandusky's dirty little secret all for the sake of the football program. He's as dirty and guilty as Sandusky.

Boohoo...Dad I wish you were a man and not a pedophile living vicariously through another pedophile man. You DAD is a loser now. Instead of doing the RIGHT thing he decided to play football. PENN STATE ARE A BUNCH OF LOW LIFES...anyone still attending that school should be ashamed!! You parents should be ashamed of you and themselves for raising such stupid children.
Saw on the news just now, that the students are getting up the faces of the journalist and being disrespectful....shocking. Just shows more immaturity. Can't wait till you money runs out from lawsuits!! You might wanna pray because Penn State is doomed!!!

YOU PEOPLE ARE IGNORANT!!! JOE PATERNO' DID NOT COVER IT UP. THE COACH SAW IT, THEN TOLD HEAD COACH JOE PAATERNO, THEN TOLD THE ATHLETIC DIRECTOR and was covered by the ATHLETIC DIRECTOR!!!!!

JOE PATERNO IS OLD SCHOOL!! HE DID HIS PART BY QUICKLY TELING SOMEBODY!! HE DID'NT KNOW THIS WAS BEING COVERED UP! THE OTHER COACH WHO SAW THE RAPING SHOULD OFF CALLED THE COPS!!


READ THE WHOLE STORY YOU DUMBA$$ PEOPLE!

It was sad. I'm sure they are good people. When McQueary reported to Joe, and when Paterno reported to the athletic director and the president, I'm sure they thought it would be handled properly!! I blame Jerry Sandusky for putting so many people through HELL. I feel compassion for these people. Jerry Sandusky can rot in hell.

I bet that's what the victims wished for too. That their Dad (or some responsible adult) was there for them as well. Sorry, no sympathy here.

For a brief reality check, please know the California Commission on Judicial Performance, gives has historically given pedophiles a pass.

For the last time-forget about FOOTBAL and PATERNO. It's about kids being raped. Cry about that you idiot, not your dad who didn't report it! Frickin EGOS
