9:15 am
joins us to talk about the latest, thank you for joining us what is the latest happening at penn state do we know when he may be leaving? can we expect the president of penn state to make a statement about this? >> well, not that i know of, at the moment, the statement that came out late last night was from the board of trustees they plan to meet again on friday and they will appoint a special committee to look into everything that happened and make determinations which doesn't sound to me like that will be any time soon it will be committee -- committees i am familiar with work, there is a game saturday he is preparing to coach in it, penn's last home game of the season it seems it will be really weird to me also seems like it will be really weird when after the game, they go to a press conference and he talks about first downs and stuff like
9:16 am
that, no body is going to want to ask about that, it is just -- it has been handled poorly, i can't imagine they are going to let him coach saturday but that is where we are right now. >> talking about how it has been handled penn state is notoriously fickle about dealing with the press doesn't like to deal with the press and seems to me they have done just about ever thing wrong they could do when it comes to being upfront about this and making people available to talk. >> yeah, you know paterno was supposed to have the press conference yesterday and it was abruptly cancelled by university communications department 30 minutes before it was to begin but before that, they had said he will take your questions but in the about the scandal. well, okay what are we going to talk about folks you know. it was kind of -- it was just awful they have done a terrible job of handling it in fairness to them, how do you handle a
9:17 am
scandal like this. this isn't payment to freshmen and cars this isn't selling memorbilia or tattoos this is beyond. this is serious business and we should mention you know people talk about paterno and all that we are talking about young boys who were allegedly abused and assaulted, on in some cases on the school grounds let me talk about joe for a moment is he to some extent being made a scapegoat? here is why i ask this he himself is not the target of any investigation has not been, not charged with committing any such acts, he -- someone told him what happened what they had seen he did report it to officials at school and testified before the grand jury why so much pressure on him to step down. >> i think people are looking at a pattern this wasn't just the horrible 2002 incident in the shower everyone is
9:18 am
focussing on, these allegations went back -- go back 15 years to as early as 1998, i think that was the first one mentioned in the grand jury report. and people are speculating because of that, sandusky was no longer going to be his air current and that is when he opted to retire there was a problem with this guy an awareness here and they were trying to deal with it. that to me, seems to be the issue and that is why he gets so much heat for this i think he should you know it is his program. >> cindy i want to shift gears for you here trying to take a sharp turn as long as we have you here in some quarters it is sounding like the nba lock out, the nba may be on the verge of canceling the season. >> well, you know they are
9:19 am
saying it is a take it or leave it offer for players and players you know have to come up with a decision on it, probably by later today i think, late in the afternoon today, we've also seen these -- i am a little skeptical about going too crazy with this oh, take it or leave it it is the end the final moment we have all been down this road with labor negotiations with sports leagues and players, but, you know at some point here, they really are coming down to a dropped edge level i just don't know it is quite today i am skeptical about that maybe i am just trying to cling to some little bit of happiness. right. well, cindy thank you for your take on both those stories hopefully we have you on the program again. >> thanks so much >> assistant sports editor with the washington post. >> coming up president of iran saying his country won't back away from its nuclear program. this after a new un report on the country's weapons
