Unless some fans from another team defaces or wrecks it, it will stay. The PSU faithful will never waiver in their support.

Trustees decide to take it down this weekend. I don't know if there were actual odds on this, but it's the right move.

Do you have a link to this?  If true, I'm surprised they even bothered to take a stance on this.  I always thought they would just drag their feet in hopes that someone would make the decision for them by vandalizing it and cutting it down one night.

I'm changing my mind.  I do think it will eventually come down. It has to.

Or move it to a private room that just honors all the football accomplishments.  That way, people have a choice to make as to whether they are interested in looking at it.

It should be melted down and converted to an anonymous park bench.

It should have been torn down about 10 minutes after the Freeh report came out. The fact that it's still standing is an absolute insult to the victims of Sandusky

The best possible thing for the onlooking world and the Trustees to do is allow democracy to rule at Penn State and allow the statue to stay where it stands.

While it is a symbol of the self-delusion of the Penn State student body, who only want to perpetuate the legacy of Paterno the coach, and only the coach, every time a nationally televised Penn State game goes to commercial and potentially shows the statue, the rest of world won't be so deluded and the missteps, massive cover-ups, and child rape at the campus will serve as a reminder to the events that shouldn't be forgotten. Eventually, the incoming student bodies in future years will start to feel the same way and remove it themselves.

 I think they should keep it up and put a dunce cap on his head...

and allow people from around the world to come to penn state to throw tomatoes and other crap at it...

could be a good healing experience for people that were victims of sandusky and people like him...

Little late on the news cycle.  It's already been decided that it will be removed:  http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/8188530/joe-paterno-statue-removed-penn-state-university-beaver-stadium
