PA Governor, lawsuit claim NCAA exceeded authority in handling of Penn State

Hyped by on January 2, 2013 Website: bit.ly

The state of Pennsylvania will file an anti-trust lawsuit against the NCAA, seeking a dismissal of all Penn State sanctions levied last summer. Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett claimed the NCAA has operated beyond their authority in punishing Penn State following the release of the Freeh Report, an independent investigation paid for by Penn State's Board of Trustees to detail the responses taken in the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

"I believe that the NCAA has no authority and operated outside of their own bylaws to issue these sanctions," Corbett said in a stern press conference.
