20120628HO_policemug2_150The PG's Gene Collier today looks back on last week's guilty verdicts in the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse case and suggests the turmoil and trouble for Penn State University is far from over.

Collier, citing in part a report by the Legal Intelligencer's Ben Present drawn from interviews with plaintiffs' attorneys (registration required),  notes that the upcoming report on the scandal by former FBI Director Louis Freeh will mark another major turning point for the university:

"In the thick foreground, the pathological fog that is Jerry Sandusky has lifted and moved into the correctional system, leaving only the shrieking clarity of a tangled black forest as far as the mind can see, extending well past the football opener and perhaps the next several as well."
