PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Hall of Fame Steeler and former Penn State linebacker Jack Hamm joined Bob Pompeani on his Saturday program on SportsRadio 93-7 The Fan.

Hamm says he is troubled over the PSU child sexual abuse scandal. He played for Jerry Sandusky and knew him very well.

He says that he was shocked to hear the news about the alleged sexual abuse of young boys. Hamm thinks that the program should get a fresh start and if that means clearing out the entire staff (including Tom Bradley) then so be it.

Franco Harris voiced his support of Joe Paterno, and Hamm says that he also supports the man that he has known since 1967. He doesn’t agree with the swift action of the Meadows Casino for placing Harris on administrative leave, because the legal process has yet to play out.

Finally, we get to talk about the Penn State/Ohio State game that will take place today in Columbus. Hamm thinks that the game will resemble an old Woody Hayes/Bo Shembechler game.

The Nittany Lions with a win today have a chance to play Wisconsin next week for the Big Ten Title game, so that stresses a lot of importance on today’s game.

Also, we get Hamm’s thoughts on the big upset in college football last night that saw unranked Iowa State taking down no. 2 Oklahoma State.
