PHOTO: 'May No Act Of Ours Bring Shame'

The statue of Joe Paterno outside Beaver Stadium was adorned with a sign on Monday that read "May no act of ours bring shame." The line, pulled from the Penn State alma mater, serves as a simple commentary on the child sex scandal unfolding in State College.

Penn State president Graham Spanier has pledged his support for the school's athletic director and vice president, but the student body has made it clear that that "The views of the president do not reflect the views of the students."
