Joe Paterno is such the towering figure at Penn State that the communications department has cooked up an entire course dedicated to the famed longtime football coach, the Daily Collegian reports. The class, "Joe Paterno, Communications & the Media," will address the 81-year-old coach's growing distrust of the fast-evolving sports media.

"[Joe Pa] is a great benchmark for the growth and development in sports media in the last six decades," said the lecturer who created the class. Six decades!? [Insert JoePa age joke here.]
