The Freeh Report: Will You Trust It?

Supposedly, the Freeh Report will be out in a few weeks (I've heard Arts Fest weekend, we'll see).

I was on record multiple time around here as saying that I won't trust the findings in the Freeh Report, especially if it's a document that will be heavily scrutinized and/or edited by the Board of Trustees prior to final publication. Obviously, everyone had that concern, especially because the whole thing smelled of a whitewash from the moment the internal investigation was announced. Recently, we've been told that the public, BOT, and media will get the report simultaneously. That's more comforting, but who knows what that actually means in terms of people getting to shape the contents of the report before its release?

Frankly, I'm still a little torn on that amount of faith I'm putting in this thing. I know that certain people, especially diehard Paterno supporters like Anthony Lubrano, swear that this is going to be a total hit job on the athletic department and Joe Paterno. They may be right, it's a "blame the defenseless" scheme that's often successful. Obviously, if that's one of the results here, the report better be meticulously cited and detailed for many people to believe it.

I suppose the discussion point here is, how much faith are you putting in the report? Is this the type of situation where mostly everyone's settled into their position, and Freeh's work isn't going to change any minds? If it puts a large share the blame in Paterno's lap, what level of proof will you require to believe it?
