Costas also gave his thoughts on the Freeh Report's findings of how legendary football coach Joe Paterno handled the Sandusky scandal. "The Freeh report makes clear that in some sense he was complicit, that in some sense he was among those who enabled Sandusky. Not only to get away with what he had already done, but to continue to victimize other children."
Costas also considered what the overall findings of the Freeh report have on Paterno's lasting legacy. "So this does irreparable damage to Joe Paterno's legacy. Does it invalidate every good and worthy thing he did besides winning football games? And he did many good and worthy things besides winning football games. No, it does not invalidate those things, but it may overwhelm them."
Meanwhile, the Penn State Board of Trustees denied reports Sunday night that it's decided the statue of Joe Paterno will remain outside Beaver Stadium. The board insists there's no timeline on a decision whether to remove Paterno's name or image from campus.
