Franco Harris Brought A Cardboard Joe Paterno To Beaver Stadium TodaySam Eifling9/01/12 6:15pmFiled to: penn statefranco harrisJoe PaternoSaint Peterdue processDenialPenn state scandalScandalJerry sandusky35EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkFranco Harris may be able to pick a wobbly incompletion from just above the turf, but he doesn't know how to pick his battles. His insistence on becoming the alpha Joe Paterno apologist rings with the dregs of denial: "He played such a minor part in this." Aaaaand now he's dragging JoePa's cardboard form to the Penn State season opener, conscripting the dead coach as a self-promoter. The reanimated two-dimensional Paterno appears to be sandwich-boarding a sign that reads "DUE PROCESS FOR PSU JVP." Presumably this is a call for Penn State to rewind the findings of the Freeh Report, which Harris has dutifully skimmed and which resulted from an investigation that Penn State itself ordered and financed. Harris should take a cue from the school itself and accept that there won't be a redo on this one.
