Penn State Sex Scandal: Community comes to grips with cover up

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- A day after that bombshell child sex abuse report, the Penn State community is still trying to come to grips with it.

The independent report from former FBI Director Louis Freeh said that legendary football coach Joe Paterno and other top school officials concealed the wrongdoing by Jerry Sandusky, worried more about the school's image than the welfare of the victims.

Even now, some are still standing by Joe Paterno.

"I knew Joe, and I knew Joe was a strong character guy. High integrity. He was a good decision maker. All those things. That's not going to change," said Matt Millen, a former NFL football player.

Many students and alumni think Paterno is a scapegoat, and when the dust settles, he will be remembered as a great college football coach.
