Who was the idiot who decided to release the report yesterday. The only days in the entire year where there are no professional sporting events are the day before and day(s) after the Baseball All-Star game. And so that's when the report is released? While the release of the Freeh Commissions interpretation of the limited facts they had was not going to be a good day and would not have been missed regardless of when it came out, if the sports "reporters" had something else besides this to talk about yesterday maybe we could have been spared the incessant flogging of do-loop coverage by a media with NOTHING else to talk about.

Louis freeh and his team chose the day, not bot... from what i understand..
And it could have been super bowl game day and we would have gotten plenty of talk. Biggest sports scandal in history and all.....

So who's the IDIOT now?
plus the paterno counsel demanded to have the report issued ASAP due to the leaks last week.
Also, please remember that this really should be about openness and answers as best we can get them. I don't want to hide and bury this. Awful things happened and we should use this time to learn from those mistakes and make sure they don't happen again. A fallout of that is that there are some headlines and stories on ESPN and such. Some of them are misstating the report and other facts, and while that sucks, we shouldn't look to bury the findings because of it. I disagree with some of the "reasonable conclusions" made in the report, but that doesn't mean I want it to go unnoticed.
The tell-tale strength of the university, and the BOT will come next. We need to do what's right, regardless of the media or public pressure. If we believe this is not a football problem, and no punishment should be made to the football team, we need to state that and the reasons why and fight for it; Appeal any NCAA decisions against it, and not bow to the "pressure" that we bowed to when the grand jury report was released. Similarly, if we feel this IS a football problem, make the changes necessary even if we don't like them. Hardest part is who the "we" are in that statement, as it shouldn't be the BOT by themselves, and it isn't a bunch of crazies like us who post on a sports message boards (and pay for that).
The point was openness, which made yeesterday the perfect choice. Concelament is what brought us to this point and I'll stomach no more of it.
The best thing that PSU has done was hire Freeh. His report was fair and about as thorough as possible without sopena power.
The next move is the removal of the majority of the BOT. Keep the three guys elected recently by the alumni (although I would rather not have crazy Lubrano). Also, I realize that getting Corbet off that board is probably an impossibility. Everyone else though should go. I cannot tell you how PISSED OFF I was during their press conference. I wish they would have done the right thing and stepped down. Although, it didn't surprise me.
