Book Description

Entering the 2000 Football Season, Penn State football coach Joe Paterno was poised to pass Paul Bear Bryant as major college football's all-time winningest coach. With his 317 career victories, Paterno was six shy of tying Bryant's record of 323. But as successful as his Nittany Lions teams have been on the field, winning two national titles and posting seven undefeated regular seasons, Paterno has been most influential off the field as a mover, shaker, and outspoken advocate for what is right and ethical about collegiate sports.
