Contrary to prior reports that Penn State University has decided to take down the statue of deceased head coach Joe Paterno, a member of the Penn State board claims that no vote has been held by the board in regards to the removal of the statue, according to Laura Nichols of StateCollege.com.
Penn State Board member Capt. Ryan McCombie said "We did no such thing," re: voting to take down Joe Paterno statue, made no more comment.— Laura Nichols (@LC_Nichols) July 20, 2012
Ever since the Freeh Report had been released, the biggest question has been whether or not the report is damning enough to Paterno's reputation that it would warrant the removal of the statue in his honor outside Beaver Stadium. The biggest hope here is that whatever the decision is, it will be a peaceful decision.
