Read Osborne's statement on Saturday's game

Here’s the full text of a statement released by Nebraska Athletic Director Tom Osborne regarding the Huskers’ upcoming game at Penn State on Saturday: “I am saddened to learn of the recent events at Penn State and we will continue to monitor the developments on their campus. We will hold the alleged victims and all those involved in our thoughts and prayers.”

“We have had a number of inquiries from fans regarding the circumstances at Penn State and the conditions they might expect in attending the game.  UNL Chief of Police Owen Yardley is in touch with the Penn State police department and we have talked with interim Penn State Athletic Director Mark Sherburne.  We have visited with Penn State security and we understand they are enhancing their security efforts for Saturday’s game and are taking extra precautions to ensure that all players, coaches and fans are treated in a respectful way. We also appreciate that there is a student-led effort at Penn State to respectfully welcome Nebraska fans to Beaver Stadium and into the Big Ten Conference. We know that our fans will reciprocate and display good sportsmanship toward Penn State’s fans and players.”

I know everyone has their opinion on the PSU incident so here is my take. In the Military you are GUILTY until proven INNOCENT of a crime! In civilian life it is suppose to be the opposite! To my knowledge JoePa committed no crime nor had he been charged with one . If we as a people used this proccess in every case where MORALITY rather than CRIME was the ruling factor, we would have to fire every politician, President and most other circles! We are HUMAN with HUMAN frailities. It is Saddening what happened to the young boys in Sanduskys charge, but Joe followed the chain of command and reported it to his Superior. Repremand him, but not fire him. PSU will never find another who will contribute even a fraction of what JoePa did! I’m not a PSU fan or alum but I do admire the man. JOE PATERNO FOREVER!!!!!
