Take away what we love we’d all be Joe Paterno

from Joe Budden – No Church in the Wild Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Joe Paterno was the Penn State University football coach for over 60 years and it was all taken away from him in an instant when he was found to be involved in the PSU Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. Paterno knew something was going on with Sandusky and the boys, but never followed up with it like he should have. Soon after Paterno got fired, he died from cancer. Some speculate that his death was a result of the stress of his being fired from a job that was his livelihood.
