GOING TO STORAGE: Paterno statue.
  • GOING TO STORAGE: Paterno statue.

Breaking news from Penn State:

The statue of Joe Paterno, the late football coach who proved to be an enabler in the Sandusky sex abuse scandal, will go into storage. It has become a source of "division," the college president says.

The action comes befor expected tough NCAA action against the school tomorrow. From the New York Times:

INDIANAPOLIS — The N.C.A.A. announced Sunday that it would levy “corrective and punitive measures” against Penn State in the wake of the child sex-abuse scandal involving a former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky and a scathing report that found school leaders covered up accusations against Mr. Sandusky.

The N.C.A.A. released no details, saying they would be disclosed on Monday morning by N.C.A.A. President Mark Emmert and Ed Ray, the chairman of the N.C.A.A.’s executive committee and Oregon State’s president.

UPDATE: Sources are telling various news organizations that the school will lose scholarships, get a bowl ban and a fine in excess of $30 million, but no so-called death penalty.
