Littlefield On Sports: Inside The Sandusky Scandal10:30


The sports pages this week continue to be dominated by the sexual abuse scandal surrounding former Penn State University assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

On Tuesday, we learned that 10 more alleged victims have come forward since Sandusky's indictment on November 5. On Monday, we also heard from Sandusky himself, who told NBC's Bob Costas he was innocent of the charges outlined against him in the 40-count indictment.

"I have horsed around with kids," Sandusky told Costas. "I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them and I have touched their leg, without intent of sexual contact."

When asked whether he was sexually attracted to underage boys, Sandusky responded: "You know, I enjoy young people. I love to be around them ... but, no, I'm not sexually attracted to young boys."

With the Penn State scandal still unfolding, Bill Littlefield of NPR's Only A Game will stop by to give his take on the continuing fallout from the scandal.
