By this time tomorrow, we should know a lot more about what happened--and what didn't--at Penn State.
The team heading up the internal investigation into how Penn State handled the Jerry Sandusky situation has announced that it will release its final report on the matter on Thursday at 9 a.m.
The release will be the first time that anyone outside of the investigative team--a team headed by former FBI director Louis Freeh--has seen the report, which has been conducted without any meddling from senior administrators or the board of trustees at Penn State.
In recent days, myriad reports have suggested that the report will be tough not only on former coach Joe Paterno, who was fired for allegedly not doing enough to stop Sandusky, but also other top university officials.
The announcement regarding the report's release came just hours after it was reported that former Penn State president Graham Spanier requested and was granted a meeting with the Free investigative team. That meeting apparently took place only a few days ago. Spanier was removed as president because of the Sandusky mess but, unlike former athletic director Tim Curley or former vice president Gary Schultz, has not been charged with any crimes in the matter.
Also on Tuesday, the Paterno family issued a statement in which they said that they requested but were denied a meeting with the Freeh group. The family said they believe the "report would be stronger and more credible" had they been given the opportunity to tell Paterno's side.
