Breaking on ESPN via the web and TV, Joe Paterno's family said that the winningest college football coach in D-I history passed way early this morning. The statement released by the Paterno Family: "He died as he lived. He fought hard until the end, stayed positive, thought only of others and constantly reminded everyone of how blessed his life had been. "His ambitions were far reaching, but he never believed he had to leave this Happy Valley to achieve them. He was a man devoted to his family, his university, his players and his community." We'll be back with more later. Godspeed, JoePa.
