Today, we are all astonished by what the NCAA determined as sanctions starting in 2012 for alleged cover-ups by senior leaders in the Sandusky child sexual abuse crimes.
It is not our purpose here to comment on the appropriateness of those sanctions or formulate an opinion on whether or not the Freeh Report is the right basis for making those judgments. Others are making those sorts of statements elsewhere.
What we do know, and perhaps it’s ALL that we know, is that none of this had to do with you, the Penn State football players. And we wish to personally thank you for your great conduct over the past several months.
