Penn State will honor Joe Paterno publicly for the first time since the Jerry Sandusky scandal that ultimately led to his dismissal.
Not everyone is thrilled about it. SportsCenter anchor Linda Cohn is one of those people.

Sept. 17 will mark the 50th anniversary of Paterno’s first game as a head coach at Penn State. He led the Nittany Lions from 1966 until 2011.
Paterno’s 409 wins are the most in FBS history. He had 111 of them stripped as part of the NCAA’s sanctions against the program, but had them returned in January of 2015.
Paterno died in January of 2012, just three months after being fired.
