Thanks, Jerry Sandusky, for your unneeded input.
Here is the statement Sandusky issued through his lawyer earlier today:
This is a sad day! Our family, Dottie and I would like to convey our deepest sympathy to Sue and her family.
Nobody did more for the academic reputation of Penn State than Joe Paterno. He maintained a high standard in a very difficult profession. Joe preached toughness, hard work and clean competition. Most importantly, he had the courage to practice what he preached. Nobody will be able to take away the memories we all shared of a great man, his family, and all the wonderful people who were a part of his life.
The exclamation point is to convey his seriousness… or it was added by one of his sick lawyers, presumably Joe Amendola. One or the other.
