We stumbled across this wire report over at CBS Sports:

A new poll released Friday shows Pennsylvania's registered voters favor renaming Penn State's football stadium in honor of longtime coach Joe Paterno, who died in January.

The Quinnipiac University survey found that 46 percent of those polled thought the school should rename Beaver Stadium, while 40 percent were opposed.

The idea was more strongly backed by those who described themselves as "very or somewhat interested" in college football, and by those over age 65.

Beaver Stadium is named for James Beaver, a Pennsylvania governor of the late 19th century who served on the school's board of trustees.

Pollsters surveyed nearly 1,300 registered voters over six days earlier this month. The poll's margin of error was plus or minus 2.8 percentage points.

What do you think?

Too soon to rename the stadium with the Jerry Sandusky stuff still very fresh?

Justified given all the good Paterno did over the years for the school?

Something that should never happen given the scandal?
