Pegula calls on Penn State folks to be forthcoming

Sabres owner and Penn State benefactor Terry Pegula has called upon people at his alma mater to speak out regarding the child sex abuse scandal that has engulfed the university.

"Our concern and compassion should be for the children involved in these terrible allegations," Pegula said in a telephone interview with Canadian sports outlet TSN. "Whomever may have been involved in any way, anyone who knew anything, they've got to come clean. They've got to step forward and say, 'Here's what I know, here's what happened...' and that includes you know who [ex-football coach Joe Paterno].
 
"Telling the truth now will go a long way towards getting everyone through this. If there's going to be a blind allegiance to anyone or anything here, it needs to be the university and to the truth. … That's how we get to the bottom of what happened, that's how we get our image back."
