Report: Sue Paterno wasn’t told to leave Penn State pool

Wednesday evening, a “source close to the Paterno family” -- hey @ScottPaterno -- told the Patriot News that Sue Paterno, wife of now-former Penn State head coach Joe Paterno, had been “told to leave a Penn State campus pool where she normally works out.”

As it turns out, that “snub” may have not been that simple.

Thursday evening, the same paper reported that Sue Paterno “was not told to leave a Penn State campus pool where she works out.” The paper goes on to write that "[t]he natatorium was closed for Thanksgiving.”

The paper also notes that discussions are underway to determine the ability of the Paternos to use the Lasch Football Building facilities going forward.

And, as an aside, if you want to talk about JoePa’s legacy in Happy Valley, this uncertainty about the wife of a living legend swimming in a pool that her husband either directly or indirectly built would be Exhibit A in the short-term.
