So those fans at Penn State want to save the Joe Paterno statue, right? Someone plunked down the money to fly a “Take The Statue Down Or We Will,” banner over State College this morning. According to the Centre Daily News, “the pilot was scheduled to be out for about three hours starting at about 10:15 a.m.”
Sources told ESPN over the weekend that trustees had no plans to remove the statue. As of four days ago, this was the guy in charge of watching over the statue. No word on if the school plans to add reinforcements.
