It has become clear to this observer that the Joe Paterno family spent millions of dollars to buy a fresh white wash of the Joe Paterno image. Did anyone expect the investigative team, a group of high profile professionals hired by the Paterno family, to report anything other than what they were being paid to find, a way to enhance the tattered image of the late Penn State coach?

Former FBI director Louis J. Freeh had been appointed by Penn State University trustees, shortly after the scandal broke, to head up the investigation to get to the bottom of this sad story. The Freeh report came out a few months later and confirmed what most of us already knew, that Paterno, university president Graham Spanier, athletic director Tim Curley and university vice president Gary Schultz were involved in a cover up to protect the Penn State image. Spanier served as Chancellor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln from 1991 to 1995 before going to Penn State.
