More previously sealed documents were released Friday from Penn State's fight with its insurance company over who should cover the costs of the nearly $93 million in legal settlements the university has paid Jerry Sandusky's accusers. Most of the filings focus on the ongoing insurance dispute , but excerpts from new depositions of key university figures are included. The documents come from the same trove of court filings that earlier this week revealed one Sandusky accuser claimed he reported his abuse to Penn State's iconic head football coach Joe Paterno in 1976.

HARRISBURG - A whistle-blower and defamation lawsuit against Pennsylvania State University will go forward, a judge ruled Tuesday, denying the school's request to have it dismissed. Former assistant football coach Mike McQueary sued the school in October, claiming he was portrayed as untruthful in statements made in 2011 by the university's president after Jerry Sandusky's arrest on charges of child sexual abuse. Judge Thomas Gavin said McQueary's lawsuit makes sufficient claims of "outrageous conduct" on the part of the school to keep the case alive.

BELLEFONTE, Pa. - A judge has scheduled a hearing in former Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach Mike McQueary's lawsuit against the school. Court papers filed Friday indicate the March 18 hearing will be short. Penn State sought to have the lawsuit dismissed or put on hold while criminal charges are pending against two school administrators, but Judge Thomas Galvin earlier denied the request for a delay. McQueary is seeking millions of dollars in damages in a defamation and whistle-blower lawsuit against Penn State in connection with a child sex-abuse scandal involving former coach Jerry Sandusky.

An interview with Jerry Sandusky - his first since being sent to prison for abusing young boys on and off Pennsylvania State University's main campus - is scheduled to air on NBC's Today show Monday morning. The network announced on its website that it would have the exclusive interview with Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach. The interview is said to be excerpts of interviews Sandusky had with independent filmmaker John Ziegler. "The former longtime defensive coordinator will describe what he says happened on the campus, and what he thinks of whistleblower Mike McQueary and late head coach Joe Paterno," the network said.

Former coach Mike McQueary, who testified that he witnessed Jerry Sandusky raping a child in a Pennsylvania State University locker-room shower, might have been unduly influenced by overzealous investigators, Sandusky said in an interview broadcast on Today on Monday. "His story changed a lot," said Sandusky, 69, who is serving a 30- to 60-year jail term for his conviction last year on sexual-abuse charges. "I don't understand how anybody would have walked into that locker room from where he was and heard sounds, associated that was sex going on," he said before pausing to laugh.

Perhaps concerned that Penn State's status as a national monument to sports-inspired mass delusion was not completely secure, more than 200 former football players recently petitioned university officials to reerect a bronze likeness of tarnished coaching legend Joe Paterno outside Beaver Stadium, which was removed four years ago as a sexual-abuse scandal shook State College. Then, just a week after this latest attempt to rewrite Penn State's modern history, a Philadelphia judge unsealed reports that convicted child predator and longtime Paterno assistant Jerry Sandusky had sexually abused children there - and that Paterno and other coaches knew about it - as long ago as the Ford administration.

Pennsylvania State University wants a judge to put former assistant football coach Mike McQueary's defamation and whistle-blower lawsuit against the university on hold. Lawyers for Penn State filed a motion Monday in Centre County Court, asking to prevent the lawsuit from moving forward while criminal charges are pending against two school administrators. The school argues that it wouldn't be fair to have the case proceed until the criminal charges are resolved against athletic director Tim Curley, who is now on leave, and retired vice president Gary Schultz.

MIKE MCQUEARY is expected to be a key witness for prosecutors in the child-sex-abuse case against former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky. Now, McQueary's friends are trying to save his image in the court of public opinion. The Penn State wide-receivers coach was put on leave last week after he was harshly criticized for appearing to have walked out of a locker room after allegedly witnessing Sandusky raping a young boy in 2002. But in two emails to friends that leaked out this week, McQueary said he had done more than just walk out. "I did stop it, not physically . . . but made sure it was stopped when I left that locker room," McQueary said in an email dated Nov. 8, and first obtained yesterday by the Allentown Morning Call . "No one can imagine my thoughts or wants to be in my shoes for those 30-45 seconds . . . trust me. " He wrote that he had "discussions with police and with the official at the university in charge of police.

In a jail house interview broadcast on NBC's Today show Monday morning, Jerry Sandusky sought to discredit former coach Mike McQueary's testimony that he saw Sandusky raping a child in a Penn State football locker-room shower in 2002. "I think there's a lot of things that transpired," Sandusky said in the interview. "I think these investigators, the way they went about business, his story changed a lot. " Sandusky, 69, went on: "I don't understand how anybody would have walked into that locker room from where he was and heard sounds associated that was sex going on," he said, before pausing to laugh.

TEMPLE STILL has never won at Penn State, although there was a 7-7 tie in 1950. And since there are no future meetings scheduled, who knows when or even if the Owls will get more chances? In last season's opener, they beat the Nittany Lions for the first time in 74 years by scoring the last 27 points. This time, on an afternoon when Penn State chose to honor the 50th anniversary of Joe Paterno taking over the program, they never led. It was 7-7 midway through the first quarter, 21-10 at the half and 27-24 with eight minutes to go. The Owls (1-2)

Anyone who wants the Paterno statue back up . . . please, just stop. To claim that Joe Paterno can't rebut any of these decades-old allegations, with more just unsealed Tuesday, is true and so obviously beside the point. The allegations create dark questions, and those dark questions will never go away. Stand with Paterno if you must, but understand you're now standing against a man who claimed he went to Penn State's head coach at a Penn State football camp in 1976, stating in a 2014 deposition - yes, almost four decades later - that he told Paterno as a 14-year-old how Jerry Sandusky, a member of Paterno's staff, had inserted his finger into the teenager's anus.

HARRISBURG - More than two years in the making, a package of bills to strengthen the state's child-protection laws was approved by legislators Wednesday and sent to the governor. One bill widens the net for adults who could be held responsible in suspected child abuse. Another seeks to improve coordination among county and law enforcement agencies that investigate such claims. But a bill mandating that suspected abuse be reported directly to state welfare officials - a requirement some say could have snagged Jerry Sandusky years before his arrest - is on hold at least until January.

HARRISBURG - As the clock ran down on his coaching career, Joe Paterno offered a damning assessment of Pennsylvania State University's top administrators and how they dealt with reports of Jerry Sandusky's abusing children, according to former assistant football coach Mike McQueary. "He said Old Main screwed it up," McQueary testified in Dauphin County Court on Monday, using the name of Penn State's administration building to denote those who worked in it. Then, just before he was fired - his reputation in shambles as a result of the Sandusky scandal - Paterno offered a warning, McQueary testified: The administrators could not be trusted, and would "try to scapegoat" the young assistant coach, who had told him and other top officials in 2001 that he saw Sandusky sexually assault a boy in a campus shower.
