Jerry Sandusky Ribbing of Penn State Draws a Rutgers Apology

By    |   Tuesday, 16 Sep 2014 10:19 AM

Jerry Sandusky signs and shirts displayed by Rutgers fans at the Penn State football game over the weekend were offensive for referencing his child sex abuse scandal, said the New Jersey school in issuing an apology.

The Associated Press reported Rutgers athletic director Julie Hermann as apologizing in a statement Monday for the "classless display" that she said does not represent the New Jersey school's views or its fan base.

Several photos posted on an official Rutgers football Facebook page showed fans wearing T-shirts that read "Beat Ped State." Hermann said the photos were removed.

There also was a sign that showed what appeared to be stick figures of a man and boy engaged in a sex act, with "Penn State" emblazoned across the top.

Sandusky, a former longtime assistant football coach at Penn State, was convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse.
