    But the fact that they couldn't kind of speaks volumes about the governance of PSU.  Seriously, they told Paterno to plan to retire over the course of two years, somewhere around 2004, and my assumption is that Paterno called major donors who swept in to make it clear to the Board that no one could make him leave if he did not want to.  After being told to drop dead, my guess is that Board kind of zoned out about anything having to do with Paterno.

      the one facing trial for perjury and cover up.  So he wanted Paterno to retire years ago but the A.D. ended up being one of those arrested along with the University President and the head of the Campus police..
