Joe Paterno, shown above throwing The Roc, is certainly experiencing a tough season. How tough? The four 20-point losses PSU has experienced are the most since 1897, back in Paterno's second year as coach. But this season aside, JoePa's body of work was not lost on Congress, which took time out of their schedule to honor the veteran coach for his 400th win on Wednesday.
The resolution was sponsored by PA Congressman Glenn Thompson and co-signed by 31 representatives, including Pennsylvania's 18 other U.S. House members who know a good PR op when they see it.
We take a lot of shots as JoePa in these parts (mostly due to the lack of a chance to settle the Pitt-Penn State rivalry on the field each year), but 400 wins is 400 wins, and odds are it's never going to happen again in today's impatient college football culture. So congrats to the man I think is the greatest college football coach of all time.
With that out of the way, we can now start Dave Wannstedt's countdown to the elusive milestone. 36 down, 364 more to go!
