Looks like CBS Sports (who broke the story that Joe Paterno died today) jumped the gun. NBC News, CNN, Washington post all have tweeted or facebooked the Paterno family says Joe has not passed and stories to the contrary are wrong.

There are reports of him being gravely ill, either way an American icon is nearing the spirit world. Prayers are needed regardless.

Yes, unfortunately , it doesn't look good, probably won't be long.

Btw, theres no telling how long he's had this cancer, could have been a while now.

My buddy they gave 2 months to and he lasted 24.

It just goes to show, you quit working, you go downhill. Seen it much too many times. Someone works themselves constantly to the bone, then when they retire its like they give up. Like was said, sad end to a great life. But yea, he isn't dead. Truely horrible that a new agency can just go and run a story about someone like that, goes to show they don't care to check on the facts, just worried about ratings and being the first to break a story. Idiots.
