An article by the Chronicle of Higher Education published Friday quoted a member of the investigative group behind the Freeh Report admonishing the NCAA for basing its punishment of Penn State entirely on the group's findings. In a statement released later in the day, the Freeh Group denied the article, saying no members had talked to the Chronicle.
The Freeh Group emphatically stated that no member of its investigative team spoke to The Chronicle of Higher Education for its story. The Freeh Group has no comment on the NCAA's use of the Report.
The article at the time bolstered the case of those who felt the NCAA had acted too hastily in punishing Penn State football. Regardless of whether the Freeh Group ever takes a stance, expect the debate either for or against the NCAA's actions to continue.
