For the first time in Joe Pa's endless run at P State, he has lost to the same starting quarterback 3 years in a row, now that's what I call a fucking hog kill......HUUUH! That's right it has never happen to Joe Pa over all these years. The longer JP hangs around the more of these statistical humiliations will find their way into his record book.
Why is it that many of greats in most every sport try to hang on for that one more day in the sun. Many players and coaches make this common mistake driven primarily by swollen ego's. Saturday Joe was wandering the sideline like my grandpa looking for a restroom about to piss his pants. Stripped of his headphones his involvement in what used to be his mastered craft has been relegated to taking up space on the sideline. Oh yes, his redheaded feild general stops by once in a while to whisper in his ear, most likely to tell him to stop drooling or to zip up his fly. But it is clear he has nothing to do with happens between the white lines.
I still have great respect for what Joe has accomplished over his very long and successful career but his departure is long over due. At the end of the day hanging on is the ultimate selfish act as it severely jeopardizes both Joe's legacy and the great program he built and so loves.
And Ricky, congratulations on this distinguished accomplishment, you stand alone in this catagory.
