Tonight's episode of Costas Tonight will have a segment on the Paterno family's rebuttal to the Freeh report, including an announcement that the Paternos intend to sue the NCAA. A Penn State spokesman just issued a statement telling us the university is not party to the suit.
Here is the full text of that statement:
"The University is not a party to any lawsuit against the NCAA that may be filed by the Paterno family. Penn State remains committed to full compliance with the Consent Decree and the Athletics Integrity Agreement. We look forward to continuing to work with Sen. George Mitchell and recognize the important role that intercollegiate athletics provides for our student athletes and the wider University community. Penn State maintains an unwavering commitment to excellence and integrity in all aspects of our University and continues to be a world-class educational institution of which our students, faculty, staff and alumni can be justifiably proud."
