Eichelberger agrees with Giger
October 6, 2011 - Neil Rudel
It's not often an Pennsylvania legislator ventures into the evaluation of a football program, but State Senator John Eichelberger has done just that in commenting on Cory Giger's column earlier this week.
Eichelberger, a 1975 Penn State graduate, believes Giger is correct that a conflict of interest has permeated the Penn State football program -- that Joe Paterno has stayed on way too long and is motivated in part to help promote his son Jay, the team's quarterbacks coach.
The column has drawn considerable interest. It was the most well-read story on altoonamirror.com in some time and has been linked by several web sites around the country.
