As expected, the blame-shifting from those at Penn State implicated by the Freeh report has begun. Lawyers for Graham Spanier, the university president fired last November in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal, held a press conference in Philadelphia this morning to try and explain their client's side of the story. Much of what was said was an attack on the Freeh report and its findings. Little of it was convincing. All of it sounded like a pre-emptive strike by a man who might soon find himself facing charges for his role in the scandal.
