Penn State Board Of Trustees Did Not Vote On Joe Paterno Statue

Contrary to a report Saturday that the Penn State Board of Trustees took a vote to keep the Joe Paterno statue on Saturday, a statement from a member of the board said that they did no such thing.

Here is the statement given by PSU spokesman David La Torre (via Ron Musselman.)

"Contrary to various reports, neither the Board of Trustees nor University Administration has taken a vote or made a decision regarding the Joe Paterno statue at Beaver Stadium."

The statue has been a polarizing symbol of Penn State football in the recent weeks. Those who want to remain up feel the statue serves as a symbol of the good Paterno did for the university, in spite of his shortcomings. Those who want it taken down feel it has become a symbol of the whole Jerry Sandusky Scandall at Penn State. Either way they decided, it will cause a split among those involved at Penn State.
