Penn State Scandal: Joe Posnanski Says Freeh Report 'Jumped To Conlusions'

Joe Posnanski, the author of "Paterno" a recent release that profiles the life of former Penn State University head football coach Joe Paterno, will make an appearance on Costas Tonight on Wednesday to promote the book.

During the course of the interview, host Bob Costas brings up the Jerry Sandusky scandal and the role Paterno played in it. According to Posnanski, he believes that the Freeh Report published by former FBI Director Louis Freeh (which was the basis for the heavy NCAA sanctions brought upon Paterno and Penn State), jumped to conclusions in profiling Paterno's role in the cover up.

Via StateCollege.com:

I have many of the same facts that I reported on my own that are in the Freeh report - he jumped to conclusions that I cannot jump to. [...] there was a sense that Joe Paterno knew more than he suggested; there's definitely a sense that Joe Paterno should have done more. But the cover up, the idea that he was actively following it, these sorts of things, I think [...] they're still up in the air."
