I just read an excerpt on Grantland from a new book on Joe Paterno. Is this book 25 pgaes long? How in the hell do you get a book out on Joe Paterno's life and the scandal that brought him down within 3 months? From the descriptions I could find on the book this is not a John U Bacon 1 in a million I was in the right place at the right time situations where he was already working on a book when all hell broke loose. He states that he went to Penn St once the story broke. Check out the excerpt and if you have any further insight I'd love to hear it.
This has to be a triumph of technology. 3 days after a man's death there is digital book to be purchased about it?
Also, the one thing I can't quite reconcile from the excerpt is that Joe was not close to his assistants and most of them thought he was a prick. I could see that as I was never fond of him, but then why such loyalty?. Why wasn't there more turnover?
