UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -
"We believe that it's a great time to be a Penn State student-athlete because from this point forward, we can decide together where we will go and what we will become. With today's historic signing of the unprecedented Consent Decree with the NCAA, Penn Staters everywhere can finally begin the process of moving onward from the horrors of the Sandusky case and into a brighter future which we will all build together. The darkest time in Penn State history is almost over, and we believe it will actually make us stronger in the long run. We will strive as a united family to rebuild a foundation of discipline and accountability, hard work and dedication, honor and integrity every day. We believe that, years from now, fans and foes alike will look back and see that today's events were actually the beginning of what became our finest hour. Our athletic teams will fight on under the assurance from Penn State and the NCAA that no current athletic problems will be minimized or eliminated. We believe that, over the next several years, we will show the nation and the world that we are together, that we are one team and that -- We Are . . . Penn State! We Are . . . and We Will . . . and we want you to be a part of it. God Bless and Go State!"
