02:32 PM ET 02.11 | At least one Penn State trustee was swayed by the Paterno family's 200-page statement that was intended to cast doubt on the findings of the Freeh report.

Alvin Clemens released a statement Monday saying that he thought the school should reconsider Freeh's findings, which indicated that Joe Paterno was involved in covering up allegations against Jerry Sandusky. Paterno's family hired experts to release a review of the report, which was released Sunday.

I listened to Jay Paterno on ESPN Radio today. It is strange that Jay defends his father so well. It is like he forgets that JoePa made errors in judgment. How can anyone hear McQueary's story in 2001 and NOT know that something was "rotten in the state of Denmark"?

JoePa didn't commit these horrible acts on children, but he knew. He knew and did nothing. You don't get that powerful at Penn State and not know.

Jay said "my dad didn't know everything at Penn State. I was a student and he doesn't know what I was doing." Well, duh. He didn't know every detail about every student's daily routine including his son. But, he knew when someone accused his defensive coordinator of having sex with a child in the shower in the athletic department in 2001.....and yet, he did NOTHING.

Paterno family....let this go. You are only making it worse.

Perfectly said. Everyone outside of State College without a horse in this race understands Paterno ran things. I can't for the life of me understand why people are still trying to defend any of this. Time to let it go and move on.

While I have a serious problem with what Joe Paterno didn't do, I have no problem whatsoever with Jay Paterno now. It's his dad. He is supposed to defend him til the end. I would.

I respectfully disagree. My father was an alcoholic. Everyone knew. His co-workers, our neighbors, and our family/friends.

Putting my head in the sand and going on national radio/TV to say that he wasn't an alcoholic is crazy. I can't deny what everyone else already knows.

He made mistakes. He is human. Acknowledge that and move on. Represent your family honor by appropriate actions and concerns NOW.....not trying to justify or change your father's past errors.
