|Former Penn St. Players say Freeh Report "Flawed"
|Franco Harris and two other former Penn State football players say the report about Penn State's handling of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal ''is highly flawed, and factually insufficient.''
Harris, Rudy Glocker and Christian Marrone sent to other Penn State alumni an email and letter criticizing the Freeh report that they plan publish in The Wall Street Journal and other large publications.
The email and letter were obtained by The Associated Press on Friday.
The email says there was a rush to judgment by the media, the board of trustees, university officials and the NCAA after the blistering report was released two weeks ago.
The report accuses school officials, including late coach Joe Paterno, of covering up the abuse to avoid bad publicity.
