Boiled Sports Weekly Real Genius: Joe Paterno

If you can out-think, out-wit, out-prepare and beat a genius, what must you be? I don't really know. But, you are at very least considered the Boiled Sports Weekly Real Genius, when you accomplish such a feat.

Congratulations, Coach Joe Paterno! You have earned this honor.

I've heard it said that you are little more that a figurehead or a face of the program, at least in recent seasons, but, I don't know to whom else I could bestow this honor, so you're our guy. You led your team into a game in which the Irish had little to lose and were a 17-point road dog. That is sometimes the worst type of opponent to face. Yet, your Lions whipped the Irish...and if it wasn't for an INT for a TD, it would have been worse.

Well played, young man, you still got it. Savor this honor...there may only be five or six more of these awards given out this season.

It's Raining Points!
