1.  People gather around a  statue of former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno on the Penn State  campus in State College, Pa., on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2012. Paterno’s  doctors say the former coach’s condition has become “serious” after he  experienced complications from lung cancer in recent days.
Pittsburgh staffer Gene J. Puskar made this image Saturday night, as Paterno’s health declined.  Almost twenty four hours later, Puskar returned to campus to photograph thousands gathered to pay tribute to Paterno who died Sunday morning.
