In the spirit of a Dead Pool . . .

Name the date on which Joe Paterno will die.

I'll go first. I say that he goes the way of Bear Bryant and dies no later than St. Patrick's Day 2012.

He's suppose to release a statement tonight? What can he say? Could he possibly off himself by the weekend? I think they need to cancel the game Saturday.

A morose twist . . . guess the date by which Jerry Sandusky is found to have committed an act which renders the need for a criminal trial moot. In light of what I've read of the indictment and the massive peripheral fall out, I think that there is a very good chance that Mr. Sandusky does himself in. This guy was a revered hero and he is now universally despised and the people whom he considered to be friends are taking a huge hit (criminally, civilly and morally) because of his actions.

If the lead news stories tomorrow are: (1) Sandusky commits suicide and (2) another woman accuses Herman Cain of sexual harassment, I'd find the latter to be more surprising. And that says a lot . . . .

And he STILL thinks he could coach at least a few more years.
