The Paterno-family report should be read and considered, but also taken for what it is: a document with an agenda. And the agenda was to clear Joe Paterno's name.
Anything will be better than this past offseason. It was so miserable that a historic decision to start a four-team seeded playoff system became a news afterthought.
Joe Paterno, who for so many decades represented all that was good and honorable in college athletics, lied. It's that simple and heartbreaking.
