Penn State

Fans Show Love For Joe Paterno

11/12/2011 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Pa support at Penn State
Tailgating is underway outside Beaver Stadium, and the Penn State fans are showing the love for their legendary ex-coach, Joe Paterno

According to an onlooker, several fans are sporting t-shirts, decorating cardboard cutouts (see below) and carrying signs in support of JoePa . So far, we're told the crowd is well-behaved.

As we previously reported, FBI and police responded to a bomb threat made last night -- but nothing was found.

A plane just flew overhead (see below) with a sign that, according to multiple witnesses, reads: "Joe is so dirty he needs a shower."

Trust us, that's what it says.

I would like to think that anyone that still supports ANYONE in the org. just hasn't read the grand jury report. I would also like to think that they kids that are supporting and were protesting do so because they are simply children. They cannot fully grasp what happened, and all events that took place.

I don't get it this guy made a serious mistake and should have know way better.This should have been resolved ten yrs ago but no...he couldn't be bothered. that's why he should be gone ....not a poor guy that got fired.My 2 cents is there is alot more going on than meets the eye...this does not pass the sniff test.

Stupid is as stupid does. How can anyone support Paterno after he failed to go to the cops? Let me guess; they've never been molested as a kid, right?

A critical mistake, an unforgivable error that he only can contemplate forever. How sad he sold his legacy at the expense of an unnamed child who now takes down JoePa... unnamed child but not forgotten. Oh how the mighty will fall.

So TMZ has gone from the "All Things Chaz Bono" site to the "All things Penn State Fiasco" site.

This is a tragedy - really it is. But celebrity news? To this extent? No.

You think if this was one of this monsters children or grandchildren he would have done nothing? While he didnt directly hurt any children, any child hurt after he did nothing is on his back. Like it or not.
