'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.

Oh Daddy..I wish you could be here at a football game instead of being investigated for doing very little towards protecting small children from a pedophile. Boo-Hoo! Losing isn't the same without you to idolize!

Sorry, Jay Paterno, Can't cover this one up. The Paterno family name brand is destroyed. Your dad messed up and now your family can't be legends anymore. Rape is a serious crime with serious mental health consequences to their victims. You can't cover this one up Jay Paterno with treatable lung cancer stories and comparing the Paterno situation to the book of Job. Joe Paterno will go down as a pedophile supporter and you can't ride the coat tails of glory anymore. PennState - a disgrace.
