The NCAA last month gave Joe Paterno his football wins back, but the bronze statue of the coach that for years greeted visitors outside Beaver Stadium remains in seclusion. And a lot of people think that's wrong, a new poll shows. Of 1,023 Pennsylvania residents polled by Quinnipiac University, 59 percent said the statue of Paterno with his finger in the air should be restored to a prominent place on Pennsylvania State University's campus. A quarter of those surveyed said it should not. The poll numbers, released Wednesday, landed on the same morning that the state Senate majority leader repeated his contention that Paterno had been unfairly "scapegoated," criticized the NCAA president, and called for new probes into how the athletic association handled the fallout of the Sandusky sex-abuse case.

ISSUE | WAR WEARINESS Draft to the rescue There was a jaw-dropping statistic in a recent report that put the average number of suicides among soldiers and veterans at a staggering 22 per day. As a Vietnam-era veteran, I am appalled. The focus on treating vets is great, but it's not the solution - and the real solution, reinstituting the draft, is not popular. It's illogical to think that we can send a man or woman into a war zone for repeated tours, with brief stops back home, and not have psychological consequences.

Troy Shorts could have sat behind a podium, smiled for the cellphone cameras, and put pen to paper like many top South Jersey football players did on Wednesday as part of national signing day. He could have accepted a scholarship from Central Connecticut, an NCAA Division I program that competes in the Northeast Conference with Sacred Heart, Wagner, and Bryant, among others. He could have been part of the celebratory scene on Wednesday - the attention in school, the posing for pictures, the swirl of excitement and congratulations.

Hello there Samantha, raised in North Wales, met her friend Adam in class at Penn State's Altoona campus. Then, at a 2008 weekend party in State College, she met Adam's older brother, Mike. Samantha and Mike saw each other several more times at similar gatherings that year. Then in 2009, she transferred to the main campus to complete her bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism. "We started to see each other more often after that," recalled Mike, who earned his bachelor's, master's and doctorate in material science and engineering at Penn State.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - James Franklin scrolled through his Twitter feed. Between swift swipes of his finger, the Penn State coach looked up to watch ESPN's national signing day coverage on a large flat-screen TV. He peered back down through his glasses and surveyed the thick binder in front of him. On his second signing day in Happy Valley, Franklin spent the morning inside the "war room," an upstairs space in the Lasch Football Building on the university's...

James Franklin received plenty of attention - and some criticism - during his introductory news conference as Penn State's new head coach about 13 months ago when he said he wanted to "dominate the state" in recruiting. On Wednesday, he came to the same podium in the Beaver Stadium press room to talk about the Nittany Lions' signed recruiting class of 2015, armed with numbers showing that he pretty much did what he said he intended to do. "We had seven of the top 10 players in the state of Pennsylvania, the most in more than a decade," Franklin said.

STATE COLLEGE - During a moment of silence, Penn State coach James Franklin sat at the head of a table in a crowded room in the Lasch Football Building - in the midst of yesterday morning's National Signing Day "war room" - and stared into space. Franklin, sporting a light-blue button-up shirt with an attached microphone for talking with commits on Skype and FaceTime, broke his trance, felt a hand on his back, looked up and saw his wife, Fumi, standing next to him and smiling.

STATE COLLEGE - On Jan. 11, 2014, James Franklin made a promise. "We are going to dominate the state," the coach said without blinking an eye. "Dominate the state" - it's been hashtagged on Twitter and printed on T-shirts since Franklin's introductory news conference as the Nittany Lions' football coach, and, while many have overused or overblown the motto, it wasn't an empty claim. Franklin put himself and his staff out on a limb, but, as long as there aren't any surprises today on National Signing Day, he'll have the results to back up that promise.
