As the Freeh Report continues to make waves through all of those connected to Penn State University, some of the current players have finally commented on the issue. They're not the kind of comments that you want to see, though, and some of them are cringeworthy.
Some Nittany Lions football players were attending the "Uplifting Athletes" charity event to raise money for the Kidney Cancer Association. Running back Silas Redd was asked about Paterno and the Freeh Report. "It has nothing to do with us," Redd told the Associated Press about the findings. "We're just talking about this event and this season."
Redd was asked if he thought Penn State should take down their statue of Paterno, something many people have called for, and he said he disagreed with the idea.
"Because I feel he did a lot more good than bad for this university," Redd told the AP.
Redd wasn't alone in his support as defensive tackle Jordan Hill said he still supported his former head coach. "I'm still a big supporter of coach Paterno and he is one of the reasons that I'm here," Hill told the Associated Press. "All you can really say is no man is perfect at all."
