My Take: The Freeh Report

Last week, former FBI Director Louis Freeh announced the findings of his investigation into the child sex abuse scandal at Penn State. The report accused top Penn State officials—including the former president and former coach Joe Paterno—of "an active decision to conceal" evidence of Jerry Sandusky's crimes to save the school from bad publicity. The Penn State scandal is far more serious than the typical recruiting and academic scandals we've seen in the past. As Freeh said, Penn State showed a "total disregard" for the children abused by Jerry Sandusky, and it's taken the "win at all costs" mentality of power college football programs to a dangerous and disgusting level. If anything positive can come out of this scandal, let it be its power to serve as a harsh reminder to schools across the country that there are things in this world more important than winning games. I'm Vanessa Oubre and that's my take. What's yours?
