Penn State Will Soon Respond to NCAA Demands [VIDEO]

Penn State says it will respond within days to the NCAA’s demand for information as the governing body decides whether the university should face penalties after the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

Penn State President Rodney Erickson said Tuesday he doesn’t want to “jump to conclusions” about possible sanctions after the head of the NCAA declared no penalty was off the table, including a shutdown of the university’s football program.

The NCAA is investigating whether Penn State lost “institutional control” over its athletic program. The probe had been on hold while former FBI Director Louis Freeh conducted an investigation on behalf of the school.

Freeh’s report says late coach Joe Paterno and three top officials buried allegations against Sandusky more than a decade ago to protect the university’s image. Paterno’s family denies that.

PENN STATE TO MAKE DECISION SOON ON PATERNO STATUE

A Penn State spokesman says a decision on the fate of a statue of late football coach Joe Paterno will be made within days.

Critics have called for the statue to be taken down in light of a report concluding Paterno and other top university officials concealed information about sex abuse allegations against a former assistant coach to avoid bad publicity.

Penn State spokesman David La Torre said Tuesday a decision on the matter is seven to 10 days away.

A small plane has pulled a banner mentioning the statue over State College, where Penn State is based. The banner read, “Take the statue down or we will.”

Paterno’s family denies he tried to cover anything up.
