Look, I don't how much coaching Joe Paterno actually does anymore. It's even money he's not even awake half the time.
What I do know is this:
1. His Penn State Nittany Lions are the worst 8-1 football team in America, but they are 8-1 (and 5-0 in the Big Ten). This despite the fact they don't have a quarterback.
So, JoePa must be doing something right.
2. God loves the guy. How else to explain the fact that Paterno recorded his 409th career coaching victory today -- a major-college record -- when some poor kicker for Illinois plunked a potential tying field goal off the post as time expired?
Hand of God, indeed.
3. Did I mention they don't have a quarterback?
