New Jerry Sandusky report due out today

Tom Corbett

If you thought all of the reports regarding the Jerry Sandusky scandal had been written, think again. A new report is due out today from Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane. The information shed by the report should have more of a political impact than it may have on the university or the football program, but fans and university administrators will be sure to keep a watchful eye on the findings.

Kane holds the position previously held by current Pennsylvania governor Tom Corbett. This is important because the attorney general’s office did not get involved with any investigation into the Sandusky crimes until 2009, a year after authorities filed a complaint about Sandusky. Kane has suggested Corbett had some political motive to slow down any investigation into the former Penn State assistant coach. Corbett was a trustee, but denied Kane’s allegation. It took nearly three years before any charges were filed against Sandusky, who is now serving a 30-60 year sentence for his sexual abuse crimes against young boys.

Three former Penn State officials — Former athletics director Tim Curley and vice president of finance Gary Schultz, and former university president Graham Spanier — currently await trial in Harrisburg for their involvement in the response to the Sandusky crimes.

Penn State’s football team is still digging out from the fallout of the Sandusky crimes and university response. The NCAA slammed the program with a four-year postseason ban. The NCAA took away a significant number of scholarships but has since returned some and allowed Penn State to get back to a normal scholarship limit ahead of schedule. Unless the NCAA amends any portion of the sanctions, Penn State will be ineligible for participation in the Big Ten championship game, College Football Playoff or any bowl game until the 2016 season.

    It just seems like they will never get it wrapped up with this whole mess.
    Franklin is a heck of a recruiter but even he is going to have trouble, recruiting and keeping those promises, if this whole incident keeps flaring up every once in a while, with this new report and such. Not to mention the folks still to be tried for their alleged involvement in the whole mess.

    Kane has her own political motives to go after Corbett and the University.

    Having said that, I think Corbett dropped the ball as AG. And I hope Curley, Schultz, and especially that weasel Spanier all spend the rest of their life in prison.

    I guess this will give us another perspective, but I did think it was all over, except for the fallout still being experienced by Franklin and the Nittany Lions. It is sad, that oftentimes it is not just the guilty that pay the price for what they did, others become collaterally hurt and affected.

    I have friends who are Penn State alums and academics and all were devastated by Sandusky and those who looked the other way.

    It is good to also understand that the victims are receiving counsel and therapy, and as much as possible trying to live normal lives outside the media glare.

    That aunt Bee mentality doesn’t work here.

    Why would anyone think this was going to go away?

    Tell that to the molested boys.

    Unlike what the goofs at Fight on State will have you believe, Kane’s report is just another piece of info that goes over like a wet fart in church and will be forgotten in 48 hours.

    C/S/S will go to trial and will likely be the only people to go to trial. FOS just keeps hoping against hope that they’re right about what really happened and those responsible will be called on it.

    What they don’t understand is that they can be right (and have the moral high ground) and it still won’t mean more people are taken to trial.

    Three years to assemble a report ? Denial is probably one of points, still being investigated ?
    Time to end this. Leave the jerk in jail, and throw away the key.
    Time to respond as a good academic institution, and move on. Heck with the uninformed NCAA.
    Play Ball !!
