PENN STATE: Tries to Move on After Sandusky Conviction
Following Jerry Sandusky's conviction Friday on multiple counts of child molestation, Penn State University is attempting to move on and focus once again on what made it famous -- football.
Even before Sandusky's conviction, thousands of Penn State alumni were sent an email that read: "We are ONE TEAM. Join us." The email including a link to a website to purchase tickets for the school's upcoming football season, which kicks off September 1st when the Penn State Nittany Lions meet Ohio University at the 107,000-set Beaver Stadium.
Former Peen State quarterback Todd Blacklege acknowledged that "time is going to have to heal the image and perception," adding, "That's going to happen sooner for some, later for others. It's going to take time for people to think about Penn State and Penn State football without thinking about the Jerry Sandusky scandal."
