    I disagree, as an Alum I enjoy having the only stadium named after a school president, and a library named after the football coach. Joe wouldn’t like having his name with the football stadium. “I hope when I leave they think of me as more than a good football coach.”

      Alex, sorry you feel this way. I along with over 12,000 supporters are not looking to change the name of the stadium. We are signing a petition to name the field after Joe. It would be Paterno Field at Beaver Stadium. We have the blessing of the great grandson to James Beaver, who the stadium is named after, and his entire family. They think this is a great idea to have both names honored because both men did so much in their lives. Joe was a simple man yes, but he ran onto that field how many times over the years, and coached from the sidelines, teaching, mentoring his players, and Beaver Stadium was his place of battle, and that is why we want the field surface to be named after him. Thank you, and I respect your opinions also.

    Why not start a petition to change the name of State College, Pa to Joe, Pa?
