from Bob McKenzie of TSN,
But the billionaire owner of the Buffalo Sabres—whose $88 million “gift” to PSU in September of 2010 to build a hockey arena and start an NCAA Division 1 hockey program is reportedly the largest single donation ever to the school—also has some strong feelings on how the university needs to conduct its affairs now and how the vast majority of “Penn Staters” need not hang their heads.
“I am standing behind the university,” Pegula told TSN in his first interview about the PSU scandal, although he did issue a press release last week re-affirming his financial commitment for the D1 hockey program that is set to begin next fall.
“Our concern and compassion should be for the children involved in these terrible allegations,” he said in a telephone interview from Boca Raton, Fla. “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,” a seemingly obvious reference to Penn State legendary football coach Joe Paterno.
