When Joe Paterno's family announced it was releasing a report today that would ostensibly clear him of any wrongdoing in the Jerry Sandusky scandal, I had a pretty good idea what its aim would be: To persuade people that Paterno did nothing to hide the pedophile's acts or impede his investigation. That's never been the issue with me. Based on any evidence, including the Freeh Report, it's hard to know whether Paterno played a role in any active cover-up. That's been the debate ever since its release last July.
