The Big Ten Conference has removed Joe Patnero's name from their championship trophy, league commissioner Jim Delany said Monday...

“We believe that it would be inappropriate to keep Joe Paterno’s name on the trophy at this time,” “The trophy and its namesake are intended to be celebratory and aspirational, not controversial. We believe that it’s important to keep the focus on the players and the teams that will be competing in the inaugural championship game.”
The Big Ten championship game is Dec. 3 in Indianapolis.
