Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany released a statement on the Jerry Sandusky situation on Wednesday afternoon on behalf of his conference. Delany offered sympathy for the victims and their families, but would not offer any indication as to actions taken by the conference until the grand jury and trustees were finished with their investigations first. Delany did not mention Joe Paterno or any Penn State administrator by name.

Here's the statement in full: 

The entire situation is so sad. There is anger, confusion, and heartache on the part of many. First and foremost, our hearts go out to all those whose lives have been negatively impacted by this series of events, particularly the young victims and their families. We hear new information on an hourly basis and recognize that there is still much to be determined. We will wait until the Board of Trustees draws its final conclusions on personnel matters before commenting on such matters ourselves. Additionally, the Board is appointing a Special Committee to undertake a full investigation of the circumstances that gave rise to the Grand Jury report, and the Grand Jury investigation is ongoing. We will wait until these two entities have drawn their conclusions before we draw any of our own on the investigation and therefore have no further comment at this time.

Jim Delany: 'The entire situation is so sad'

How is the entire university to blame, what a moronic comment.   Yes, every student, faculty member, and worker for the college is at fault and should take blame for this entire sad event.   They all should have been calling the police because they were all in on the coverup.   Dude, get a brain.

Look for penn state to whitewash the whole thing and blame it all on people who are fired.  The university itself is part of the problem, but they will accept no blame.
