Penn State Braces For Sandusky Scandal Aftermath [VIDEO/POLL]
How far should the official response go following a report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh that says top Penn State officials, including legendary football coach Joe Paterno, looked the other way from the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal?
Townsquare Sports Director Kevin Williams says Penn State is in the very early stages of dealing with the fallout, which may include removing a statue of Paterno from Beaver Stadium.
But Kevin says he would not be surprised if the school does what it can to cut the ties with the Paterno legacy.
But Williams says those may be things for down the road.
The NCAA could impose what Kevin calls, “the death penalty” on the Nittany Iions athletic program by banning it for any length of time.
But Kevin suggests that might be overreaction to what he describes as a serial crime that clearly belongs at the feet of four individuals besides Sandusky himself, Paterno and former Penn State president Graham Spanier, Tim Curley and Vice President Gary Schultz.
