Former site of Joe Paterno statue now features trees
Mash here.Spot where bronze likeness of late Penn State coach stood outside Beaver Stadium just eight days ago now has a row of freshly planted trees.
The Centre Daily Times reports the trees were planted outside Penn State's Beaver Stadium over the weekend. The weekend before, workers removed the 7-foot statue of the late coach in the wake of a child-sex abuse scandal that has engulfed the university.
Earlier in the month, an internal investigation found Paterno colluded with other high-ranking officials to cover up abuse allegations against his former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.
