Just got a call from the real Jake in State College that the Twitter universe is exploding with the news that Joe Paterno has taken a turn for the worse.
We are one family that's hoping and praying it isn't true.
Update -- It's just so sad. Comcast Sportsnet is reporting that Sue Paterno has summoned family and close friends and colleagues to say their final good-byes.
Update II -- Despite reports of his death by CBS News and others, JoePA is still fighting the good fight. How telling that the media once again got it wrong.
Update III -- Hearts are heavy across Nittany Nation. JoePa has passed away.
"Death comes to all
But great achievements raise a monument
Which shall endure until the sun grows old."
