The Joe Paterno Statue Has Been Removed From Beaver Stadium
The Joe Paterno statue is gone. Workers started erecting a fence at 6:20 a.m. around the statue and by 7:28 a.m. the bronze celebration to the school’s disgraced hero was removed, according to the Centre Daily Times. The above photo of the hooded Paterno was tweeted at 6:58 a.m. and soon, the jackhammers attacked the base. It’s estimated that it took 30 minutes of jackhammering before the statue was lifted from its base.
