Joe Paterno is a self-proclaimed tough guy. He has always said he wouldn't be one of those coaches who ruled from a tower. If he can't be on the practice field, hands-on with the players, he would retire.
What about a coach who can't be hands-on during games, who must coach from upon high?
Joe was asked about coaching from the press box during yesterday's post-Purdue presser...
"My leg hurts and my hip. Nothing serious, it's just that I'm getting to be a sissy in my old age. I can't handle it and I'm fighting a cold."The handwriting is on the wall, we just hope Joe isn't too proud and/or stubborn to read it.
