Penn State Alumni Turn Out to Support Paterno

200 supporters of Joe Paterno met at the Radisson Hotel Valley Forge on Friday to view a film about the alleged framing of the popular Penn State coach.

According to Philly.com, several hundred alumni of Pennsylvania State University braved the snow on Friday, Jan. 25 to attend a meeting at the Radisson Hotel Valley Forge in King of Prussia aimed at restoring iconic coach Joe Paterno's reputation following the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse case.

The event was reportedly organized by football hall of fame inductee Franco Harris, who played for Paterno at Penn State more than 40 years ago.

The group watched part of a film reportedly in production alleging that Paterno was framed for his reported part in the early cover up of Sandusky's crimes. See some of the film in the Video section of this article.
