A group of alumni and others with ties to Penn State is finding a lot to criticize in the Freeh report that detailed the university's response to allegations that an assistant coach was behaving inappropriately with children.
Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship says its review of the report turned up ''failures'' involving lack of disclosure, witnesses who were not interviewed and a supposed lack of evidence to back up conclusions about senior university administrators.
The 57-page report says the university should have examined the role of state and local government officials and former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky's charity, The Second Mile.
Sandusky is awaiting sentencing on 45 counts of child sexual abuse.
A spokesman for the Freeh Group declined immediate comment.

Penn State already faces four lawsuits over the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal, and at least 20 people with potential claims have already surfaced. It's unclear how many will press claims against Penn State or whether more will surface.
After Sandusky's conviction on 45 child sexual abuse counts in June, the university signaled it hoped to settle with the victims...
A win – that’s what this Penn State football team needs more than anything else.
There has been a lot of talk about improving – improving in the second half, improving on third down defense, improving in the red zone. All of that would be wonderful, but what this team needs to do is win Saturday against Navy. It doesn’t matter how ugly it is, a victory is of the utmost...
And here we figured gay North Dakota footballer Jaime Kuntz would use his Twitter account to give us the gay plague. Nope, the guy seems pretty damn normal. He likes pumpkin lattes, thinks Peyton Manning has a big head and he just wants to play DI college football. Shockingly, we didn’t even feel the least bit gay after reading Jamie’s timeline @Jamie_Kuntz.
Nearly three months after Penn State said it wanted to settle ''privately, expeditiously and fairly'' with the boys Jerry Sandusky sexually abused, lawyers for the victims from his criminal case and other potential claimants say the school has not followed up with concrete action.
The attorneys told The Associated Press in recent days that had very limited contact...
Two former Penn State administrators facing charges related to the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal are seeking to be tried separately.
Defense lawyers asked a Dauphin County judge on Monday to split the criminal cases against former athletic director Tim Curley and retired vice president Gary Schultz.
Curley and Schultz are charged with failing to report suspected child...
Navy visits Penn State on Saturday in University Park, Pa. Look inside for game television, radio, internet, twitter, live stats, game notes and more.
After one of the toughest losses it has experienced in many years, the Penn State football team turns its attention to Navy with some significant challenges to face.
The Nittany Lions (0-2) host Navy (0-1) 3:30 Saturday and need a win as badly as any team, school or fan base ever needed one.
The good thing is that Navy doesn’t appear to be as good as either Ohio or Virginia...
Shawney Kersey was the redshirt junior wide out that was supposed to help lead Penn State’s super young and super duper inexperienced receiving corps. Welp, not anymore.

Navy travels to Penn State for the first time since 1974 when they beat the Nittany Lions, 7-6. The Mids enter the game after getting trounced by Notre Dame 50-10 in Dublin, Ireland. Last week the Nittany Lions missed four field goals including a last second attempt in a 17-16 loss at Virginia. Penn State enters the game 0-2. Navy's all-time record against Penn State is 17-18-2.
One of the best running backs to wear a Penn State uniform, Ki-Jana Carter, celebrates a birthday today. Carter has his name on a few Penn State records, including the most 100-yard rushing games in a season (nine, 1994), rushing touchdowns in a half (four, vs. Michigan State in 1994), rushing yards by a junior (1,539, 1994) and career rushing average (7.2 ypa).
Start your Penn State game weekend on a winning note by hanging out with Brennan, Goon and Co. Stop by to enjoy good conversation, along with great food and drinks.
NAVY (+7) at Penn State: Too many reasons not to take a chance on Navy in this great spot. First, PSU comes off a heartbreaking loss to Virginia last week. A game they should have won as they benefitted from four Virginia turnovers, but missed four field goals. Second, Navy comes off a bye after playing pretty poorly in Ireland verse ND two weeks ago. Third, PSU is still a depleted...
