Penn State University president Graham Spanier canceled Penn St. Nittany Lions head coach Joe Paterno's Tuesday press conference due to the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Son Scott Paterno had made it clear his father did not cancel the presser and was prepared to speak about Sandusky.
A Twitter account which appears to belong to Paterno -- the account tweeted Paterno's statement at the minute it went live Sunday evening -- is claiming Paterno will hold his own, off-campus press conference to address the scandal:
No heroes can emerge from this story, but if anybody has the power to do the right thing at this point, it's Paterno. Spanier has shown he's interested in protecting his administrators, but Paterno can do anything he wants. Such a press conference could be Paterno's one chance to salvage a piece of his legacy.
