This book was a great read. It is an inspring book on leadership while telling the story of one of the most legendary college football coaches of all time. Aside from being a great and accomplishing coach, we also read about the passion and effort Joe Paterno put into making Penn State one of the most respectable college institutions in the country. It is through his tireless devotion that Penn State has one of the best football programs in the country while maintaining one of the highest graduation rates as well.
I highly enjoyed reading the historical flashbacks in Paternos career. It gave me a glimpse of who he was and how ambitious of a leader he was. This drove him to become the selfless legend that he is today. What was a little less enjoyable were the chapters on the week to week football games of the season being discussed. I found myself skimming quickly through those chapters.
Paterno, entering the final year of his four-year contract, has not yet re-signed a deal to coach at Penn State next season. With just an inkling of a monumental change like Paterno's departure on top of all the incidents during the past year, the program is faced with some instability going into the campaign. After three straight Butkus Award recipients in as many years from Poz in '05 and '06 and Connor in '07, all eyes were on Lee to keep the tradition at that position.
However, after Lee suffered a major setback with a torn ACL in spring drills, the team is without the heart and soul of its defense. One bright spot for the Lions regarding Lee is that he will be on the sidelines this season, and he is fortunate enough to have that good ol' medical redshirt in store.
Lee will rehab and be back for ; that's some good news at least.

So, who will be leading this team seeking an appropriate identity? Despite losing starters at quarterback, running back, linebacker and cornerback, the Penn State team will be led by its veteran wide receiving corps. This group includes Derrick Williams, the team's leading receiver, Deon Butler, a player with a knack for making big-time catches, and the acrobatic Jordan Norwood, all of whom played major roles in the offense last Fall.
While Williams will need to get more looks from whoever is playing quarterback for this team, this group is easily one of the most talented at the position in the Big Ten Conference. However, one of the biggest questions looming after the Blue and White game in April is the quarterback situation. After rising senior QB Darryl Clark was given some legitimate reps and turned in an impressive effort in the Lions win at the Alamo Dome, it seemed as if sophomore Pat Devlin would have to wait at least another year to gain the starting job at PSU.
However, after an impressive winter and spring that truly reminded both the coaching staff and the fan base of the true potential of the Pennsylvania native, Devlin will force offensive boss Galen Hall, QB coach Jay Paterno yes, the big guy's son and the rest of the coaching staff to make a very tough decision. Clark's toughness and run-first mentality together with decent arm strength will be evaluated against the sharp technique and precision of Devlin, complemented by his above-average mobility.
Overall, there is a great deal of pressure on Paterno and his coaching staff, who have led the Nittany Lions to three straight winning seasons, all of which resulted in Bowl victories.
