Paterno family reacts to comments by members of the Penn State Board of Trustees acknowledging Freeh failures

The comments today by members of the Penn State Board of Trustees that they reject the key findings of the Freeh report is a critically important development. Over the past year, the fundamental failures of the report have been well documented. What Freeh represented a year ago as solid evidence is now widely understood to be unsupported speculative conclusions, rather than hard facts. It is a step forward that members of the Board are publicly backing away from Freeh's central allegations. Unfortunately, the NCAA based their unprecedented penalties against Penn State entirely on the Freeh report. With the credibility of the report eroding on a daily basis, it is imperative that the NCAA revisit their actions.
