Paterno family attacks internal probe's findings
By Michael R. Sisak (Staff Writer)
Published: July 11, 2012

The family of late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno lashed out Tuesday at what it expected to be unduly harsh findings from an internal investigation into the university's handling of a child-sex abuse allegation against a former assistant.

A 100-plus page report on the investigation, commissioned by the board after the arrest last November of former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, is scheduled to be released Thursday, the same day the university's board of trustees is scheduled to meet in Dunmore.

The report is expected to detail what influenced Paterno, the longtime head football coach who died in January, had on officials' decision not to take the allegation to the authorities. It is also expected to offer insight into the relationship between the football program, top administrators and the university's disciplinarians.

The investigation, led by former FBI director Louis J. Freeh, uncovered emails in which top administrators discussed strategy for handling a report that Sandusky raped a preteen boy in a team shower on Feb. 9, 2001. Sandusky was convicted last month on 45 counts of child-sex abuse.

Paterno's family and attorneys for former university president Graham Spanier attempted to pre-empt the report's findings, attacking the early release of critical evidence and testimony they said distorted the truth about Paterno's and Spanier's role in handling the allegation.

Penn State Football: A Column Penned by Joe Paterno Sent to Former Players, According to Family
by Ron Musselman on July 11, 2012 12:59 PM

 ::snipping2::
Paterno's column follows in its entirety, per the document:

For the last two months, at the request of the Attorney General's office, I have not discussed the specifics of my testimony regarding the pending cases. And while I will continue to honor that request, I do feel compelled to address comments made subsequent to November 9; specifically, I feel compelled to say, in no uncertain terms, that this is not a football scandal.

Let me say that again so I am not misunderstood: regardless of anyone's opinion of my actions or the actions of the handful of administration officials in this matter, the fact is nothing alleged is an indictment of football or evidence that the spectacular collections of accomplishments by dedicated student athletes should be in anyway tarnished.

Yet, over and over again, I have heard Penn State officials decrying the influence of football and have heard such ignorant comments like Penn State will no longer be a “football factory” and we are going to “start” focusing on integrity in athletics.

These statements are simply unsupported by the five decades of evidence to the contrary — and succeed only in unfairly besmirching both a great University and the players and alumni of the football program who have given of themselves to help make it great.

For over 40 years young men have come to Penn State with the idea that they were going to do something different — they were coming to a place where they would be expected to compete at the highest levels of college football and challenged to get a degree. And they succeeded — during the last 45 years NO ONE has won more games while graduating more players.

The men who made that commitment and who gave of themselves to help build the national reputation of what was once a regional school deserve better than to have their hard work and sacrifice dismissed as part of a “football factory,” all in the interests of expediency.

Penn State is not a football factory and it is ALREADY a great University. We have world-class researchers, degree programs, and students in every discipline. Penn Staters have been pioneers in medical advancements, engineering, and in the humanities. Our graduates have gone on to change the world — even graduates with football lettermen sweaters.

That is why recent comments are so perplexing and damaging — Penn Staters know we are a world class University. We can recite with pride the ranks of our academic programs and the successes of our graduates. Penn Staters (and employers) know what we are and the quality of our education. Nothing that has been alleged in any way implicates that reputation; rather, it is only the inexplicable comments of our own administration doing so.

It must stop. This is not a football scandal and should not be treated as one. It is not an academic scandal and does not in any way tarnish the hard earned and well-deserved academic reputation of Penn State. That Penn State officials would suggest otherwise is a disservice to every one of the over 500,000 living alumni.

Forget my career in terms of my accomplishments and look at the last 40 years as I do: as the aggregate achievements of hundreds of young men working to become better people as they got an education and became better football players.

Look at those men and what they have done in the world since they left Penn State and assess their contributions as an aggregate — is this a collection of jocks who did nothing but skate by at a football factory, or are these men who earned an education and built a reputation second to none as a place where academic integrity and gridiron success could thrive together?

Whatever failings that may have happened at Penn State, whatever conclusions about my or others' conduct you may wish to draw from a fair view of the allegations, it is inarguable that these actions had nothing to do with this last team or any of the hundreds of prior graduates of the “Grand Experiment.”

Penn Staters across the globe should feel no shame in saying “We are … Penn State.” This is a great University with one of the best academic performing football programs in major college athletics. Those are facts — and nothing that has been alleged changes them.

JP's words ring hollow in light of how he influenced the investigations into JS's activities during his years on and off staff.  One thing that he is correct on...none of the players ever covered up JS's actions.  I do not believe that JP can say the same for himself.

Penn State
If Paterno, other officials knew of Sandusky's crimes but ignored them, school's football program should be shut down
July 11 '12

Ordinarily, with the passing of Joe Paterno and the incarceration of Jerry Sandusky, the Penn State story would be considered closed. But it seems like it is just now unfolding.

The extent of Sandusky’s horrors were presented in court. But the involvement of Paterno and other officials at Penn State continues to be revealed. College football never has been marred by a more sordid and tragic picture. Yet despite causing the kind of wrath that makes you want to spit, and the level of sorrow that prompts you to weep, does it belong in the bailiwick of the NCAA? And should that organization bring the hammer down with the ultimate blow?

All the dirt hasn’t been unearthed regarding the child sexual abuse allegations. “A man is innocent until proven guilty,” and all that. What the public has been getting lately is intermittent blurbs about shocking irresponsibility through the exposure of internal e-mails. But if it all turns out to be true, Penn State’s football program deserves the death penalty from the NCAA.

That means administering to it a lethal injection of moral and ethical outrage, then burying it.

The simmering issue is not Penn State’s guilt or innocence in the Sandusky matter, because that will be determined soon enough, perhaps when an internal report is released Thursday. If it turns out there is not sufficient evidence to show that Paterno and others were acutely aware of Sandusky’s crimes yet chose to cover them up anyway, it’s wrong to demand the most severe institutional penalty.

When this scandal broke, it appeared to fit squarely in the domain of law enforcement and the criminal justice system. It didn’t feel as if the NCAA had any business in it. The NCAA has enough on its plate trying to nail assistant coaches for buying a hamburger for an athlete.

I always felt the NCAA should restrict itself to competition-based offenses. But this Penn State calamity IS a competition-based offense.

If the worst is true, then Paterno and other officials at Penn State covered up Sandusky’s crimes because they wanted to protect the sanctity of the football program and make sure it continued unfettered, winning games and raking in cash.  ::snipping2::

Joe Paterno Defends PSU Football
By Mark Brennan
FightOnState.com
Posted Jul 11, 2012

Nearly six months after his death, the longtime coach's family sends former Nittany Lion players what it describes as an op-ed piece he wrote at the turn of the year.


Editor's Note: According to Joe Paterno's family, the following column was written by the former Penn State football coach in late December and early January — less than a month before he died of lung cancer. The story, in the form of a Word file, was forwarded to former Nittany Lion players Wednesday morning.

Paterno was fired in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal last November. To the best of our knowledge, this is the only thing he wrote about the situation before he died.

Former FBI director Louis Freeh is scheduled to release the results of his group's eight-month, independent investigation of Penn State's handling of the Sandusky situation Thursday morning.

We present the column verbatim:

Source: Freeh Didn't Interview McQueary
By Mark Brennan
FightOnState.com
Posted Jul 11, 2012

The group investigating the Sandusky scandal at Penn State never spoke to one of the key witnesses in the criminal cases against Sandusky and two former school administrators.


Former FBI director Louis Freeh led an eight-month independent investigation into the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal at Penn State, an inquiry that was said to include interviews with hundreds of past and present university employees.

With the results of the probe due to be released Thursday morning, FightOnState.com has learned that Mike McQueary — the former Nittany Lions assistant coach who served as a key prosecution witness in the criminal case in which Sandusky was convicted on 45 counts of abuse — has not been interviewed by Freeh's investigators.

A source close to McQueary's family, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said McQueary made multiple offers to speak to the Freeh investigators but they did not follow up.
 ::snipping2::
The Freeh Report will be posted online at thefreehreportonpsu.com at 9 a.m. ET Thursday. Freeh will conduct a press conference in Philadelphia an hour later. It will mark the first time he has answered questions about the investigation since it was launched in November.

HARRISBURG, Pa. — A judge didn't set a trial date after meeting with lawyers for two Penn State officials charged with perjury and failing to report suspected child sexual abuse.

A defense lawyer for athletic director Timothy Curley said Dauphin County Judge Todd Hoover discussed scheduling issues during a 50-minute meeting Wednesday.

Lawyer Caroline Roberto says the judge plans to issue an order regarding future hearings.

Freeh Report: State College Residents, Penn State Students Expecting Cover-up and Some Clarity
July 11, 2012

The release of Louis Freeh's independent investigation into the failings of Penn State administrators and former football coach Joe Paterno's role in the Jerry Sandusky scandal is set for Thursday morning.
Several leaks have given Penn State fans, students and State College natives a glimpse into what may come when the Freeh report finally is released online at 9 a.m., followed by a news conference in Philadelphia at 10.
 ::snipping2::
While the Freeh report does not mark the end of the Penn State scandal involving former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, who was found guilty last month on 45 charges related to child sex abuse.
Many are hoping the release of the Freeh report will mark the start of a healing process for a community that has been shaken by perhaps the biggest college football scandal in history.

What is the Freeh report?: Q&A on Penn State's internal investigation
By CHARLES THOMPSON, The Patriot-News
Published: Wednesday, July 11, 2012, 6:42 PM     Updated: Wednesday, July 11, 2012, 8:07 PM

Seven months and more than 400 interviews later, a team led by former FBI Director Louis Freeh will release its findings into Penn State University’s handling of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal tomorrow morning.

The report’s findings — roughly 200 pages that will focus on the university’s culture as well as the specifics of the Sandusky scandal — will be published online at 9 a.m. , followed by a news conference with Freeh at 10 a.m. in Philadelphia.

Sandusky was convicted in Centre County Court last month of 45 counts of sexual assault on 10 boys. The report is expected to answer many of the questions about how the university and certain officials initially handled the allegations against Sandusky.

Many expect this to be an important day for the legacy of Joe Paterno, the former football coach who died of lung cancer in January. Just how much, if any, blame will be put on the legendary coach?

Here’s a primer for what to expect in the report, some questions we all have, and some things that we’d like to see:

What is the Freeh Report?

Don’t confuse it with November’s state grand jury presentment, which recommended criminal charges by law enforcement.

The Freeh team has no arrest powers, and it can’t compel anyone to talk — or tell the truth — so nobody’s going to be led away in handcuffs.

This is a private investigation commissioned by Penn State’s board of trustees and paid for by the university’s insurance carriers, albeit a very expensive one employing some rather high-profile talent.

New Policy Bans Children From Penn State Facilities
July 11, 2012

On the eve of the Freeh Report release, Penn State approved a policy to limit the use of athletic facilities to “student-athletes and athletics personnel,” and recreational facilities to University ID card holders. In other words, unless you are an athlete or a coach, you won’t be using the showers in the Lasch Building any time soon.

The policy is called “AD73 Accessing Athletic and Recreational Facilities” and is effective immediately. Sandusky often showered with young boys involved with The Second Mile charity in the Lasch football locker room building, and this new rule would seemingly prohibit that.

New policy addresses access to athletic and recreational facilities
July 11, 2012

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Penn State has approved today (July 11) a new University-wide administrative policy, AD73, "Accessing Athletic and Recreational Facilities." The policy limits Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics facilities' use to Penn State student-athletes and Athletics personnel, and recreational facilities' use to individuals with a valid University identification card, during normal hours of operation.
"The University's new facilities policy is an important part of an overall plan to provide the safest environment possible to our constituents, and also re-emphasizes our commitment to offer athletic and recreational space for the use of our students, faculty, staff and their guests," said Steve Shelow, assistant vice president for University Police and Public Safety. "It's important to note that we will continue to honor prior agreements with outside organizations to use these facilities."
Any exceptions to this policy must be given in writing, and approved by the appropriate facilities office responsible for athletic and recreational facility access. At the University Park campus, David Joyner, acting athletic director, and Mark Bodenschatz, associate athletic director of facilities and operations, will oversee the policy's implementation, including necessary physical changes to limit access and the addition of appropriate staff.
