The NCAA and Louis Freeh have found spots on Phil Knight's ever-changing shit list. One group never on the list? The Paternos; Knight's feelings for the late Joe Paterno and his family have never wavered. Rather, he's just struggled with accepting those feelings depending on who happened to have released a report on a given day about Penn State's role in covering up Jerry Sandusky's systematic sexual abuse of children.
When Joe Paterno died shortly after he was unceremoniously fired by Penn State, Knight was a defiant supporter at his memorial service. When the Freeh report came out, Knight was bummed out. Now, after the Paternos released their report on the Freeh Report, he's back on the Paterno bandwagon and pissed at the NCAA.
