They should cut ties with anything Paterno (i.e., remove his name from any awards/buildings and remove his statue) and work to rebuild their image. That will take years, but I don't think football players should be punished by the actions of a few.
The irony, as with all scandals, is that the cover up is worse than the offense they're trying to cover up. As ugly as it would have been to deal with 13 years ago, had they sucked it up and dealt with the situation then instead of sweeping it under the rug, we (society) wouldn't be having this discussion and everyone would've been better off. Especially the victims.
