The Joe Paterno-Jerry Sandusky story isn’t going away. John Ziegler, controversial filmmaker/Sarah Palin lover is making a documentary called Framing Joe Paterno. He was interviewed by Matt Lauer on Today. There’s creepy Sandusky audio.
The Paterno Family Is Releasing Its Own Report On The Sandusky Scandal Soon, And Hopefully It’s Over After This
We are very sorry for bothering you with Joe Paterno news, but this is relatively important. The Paterno family wasn’t happy with the Freeh Report, so they’re releasing their own, longer report that sounds like it’s mainly a critique of the Freeh Report itself. But we’re pretty darn sure Joe Paterno was still negligent. What this all means, after the jump.
Joe Paterno’s family will defend his name to the end, as is expected, so when news broke that his statue had been removed from outside Beaver Stadium, we knew that they wouldn’t remain quiet for long. Here’s their most recent statement, which pedals its longstanding claim that the Paterno investigation is far from over and that the truth will eventually come to light and restore his good name.
Penn State football as it was is dead and buried, at this point – I can’t imagine many parents wanting to send their kids to the scandal-embroiled school, espcially when recruits of Penn State’s (former) caliber probably have multiple offers on the table anyway.

The enormity of the Freeh report and its heartbreaking conclusions are hard to fathom. We here at SportsGrid tried to cover all the bases today — from the horrifying realizations to the reactions of heavyweights like Nike and Bobby Bowden — but nobody in a lifetime could possibly explain the actions, or lack thereof, taken by the Penn State administration during Jerry Sandusky’s era of terror. One way to digest the Freeh report, I think, is through this word visualization.
The Freeh Report, Summarized: Everything You Need To Know About The Evidence Against Joe Paterno And Penn State
The Freeh Commission released its report today, shedding more light on the Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse scandal at Penn State. Joe Paterno and the other major figures involved do not look good, to say the least. Here are some of the most important, yet horrifying details of the report.
As news of Joe Paterno’s involvement in the Penn State scandal has been brought to light, Nike announced it will take Paterno’s name off of a childcare center on its campus. More after the jump.
