School President: It’s Not a “Penn State Scandal” [VIDEO]

Penn State President Rodney Erickson says it “grieves” him when people refer to “the Penn State scandal” because he thinks it centers on just one person — former football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, who’s accused of molesting boys.

Erickson said at an alumni meeting outside Philadelphia on Thursday he believes people should call it “the Sandusky scandal.”

About 650 alumni attended the sometimes heated 90-minute session, part of Erickson’s effort to repair the school’s image.

Another meeting takes place in New York on Friday.

Most of Thursday’s questions involved concerns over the firing of head coach Joe Paterno.

Erickson says he hasn’t had time to sit down with Paterno but hopes to when the scandal dies down. Sandusky acknowledges showering with boys but denies molesting them.
