Penn State Will Answer To NCAA After Freeh Report

The Freeh Report detailing Penn State's involvement, or lack thereof, in the Jerry Sandusky scandal is scheduled to be released on Thursday. When the report is released, the university is going to have to answer to the NCAA about the findings by Louis Freeh, according to a report by the Associated Press.

The NCAA says Penn State will have to formally respond to questions from NCAA president Mark Emmert, even after Freeh unveils his findings.

The governing body says it won't interfere with other ongoing inquiries into the matter, and will determine if additional action is necessary. They offered no specific timeline.

There is speculation that the NCAA and/or the Big Ten could act on the findings and bring down punishment to Penn State University if they are have been found to have violated the Clery Act, which requires all schools to report crimes on campus.
