Joe Paterno doesn't have to say "I told you so."

JoePa, who turns 79 on Wednesday, got an early birthday present Tuesday when he was an overwhelming choice as the Associated Press college football coach of the year.

So much for critics who said the game had passed him by.

Not that he's gloating about Penn State's resurgence.

"The only thing I wanted to do is try to get us back to where we were a good football team and we could be very competitive and make some plays we hadn't made," he said. "We got that done and I feel good about that."

Needless to say, I'm elated at this news. Congrats, Joe!

most definately, Joe Pa deserves coach of the year. I nor most anyone i know saw Penn State coming anywhere close to what they did this year. so hats off to Jo Pa and his Nittany Lions. next year they may be a force to be reckoned with.
