Penn State true believers, you now have a place to congregate. Franco Harris will be hosting a free public forum in Philadelphia this Saturday entitled “Upon Further Review: Penn State One Year Later.” His “panel of experts” hopes to provide a “new perspective” on the Freeh Report and the subsequent punitive action taken by the NCAA against Penn State’s football program.
“From the charges of the Freeh Report to the sanctions of the NCAA and the decisions of the Penn State Board of Trustees, the ongoing debate over Coach Paterno has had a dramatic effect on Joe’s legacy and the Penn State football program,” Harris said in a news release. “I’m eager to host a panel of experts – both pro and con – hear the views of community members, and offer a presentation that gives new information and analysis as well as a new perspective.”
Harris has been a vocal defender of Paterno. He also brought a cardboard Paterno to the luxury boxes during a Penn State home game. The University commissioned the Freeh Report and accepted its results. Spanier, Curley and Schulz are each facing criminal charges. This effort resembles Intelligent Design. Conceding there is a debate offers undue credence to one side and distorts reality.
