They have no standing to challenge the NCAA sanctions.

And how can a lawsuit "restore the reputation of the longtime head football coach" anyway?

It can't. What the family wants are the vacated wins back.





They would sacrifice everything else if a negotiated settlement allowed that.

Embarrassing.If they want Paterno's reputation improved, they should quit reminding people why it is besmirched in the first place by filing a frivolous lawsuit.

There are four faculty members joining with the Paterno estate in suing the NCAA:[*:16o6h1em]Peter Bordi, Associate Professor of Hospitality Management; Director of Center for Food Innovation[*:16o6h1em]Spencer Niles, Department Head, Counselor Education, Counseling Psychology, and Rehabilitation Services and Distinguished Professor of Education (Counselor Education)[*:16o6h1em]John O'Donnell, Assistant Professor of Hospitality Management.[*:16o6h1em]Terry Engelder, Professor of Geosciences and the most vocal advocate of fracking to be found in academia.I am underwhelmed.

Scumbags, the lot of them. May the shame of having participated in this sham follow them the rest of their careers.
