Ganim: Sandusky sex abuse scandal may cost Penn State over $100M

Penn State university faces millions in costs and damages as a result of the Jerry Sandusky scandal - including $60 million in NCAA penalties, more than $10 million in investigative and public relations costs, and potentially millions more in damages for victims of Sandusky.

The school recently issued a statement saying it won't use philanthropic money, taxes or student tuition to pay those penalties, but does that promise add up?

    Makes one wonder where Pen State will take the money from ? No tuition hike, no donations sources ? Could it be that the university will ask support from PA to cover the estimated (?) $ 100 million ?
