The Devlin scoop

There will obviously be more fallout from the Pat Devlin transferring debacle (and that's a debacle created from both sides), but here's this morning's story on what occurred over the last few days that led to Devlin's leaving Penn State. There's more to the story -- some of it I couldn't write, some of it to come -- but the divorcing was something that obviously shouldn't have happened had either side handled the situation properly. It appears neither side wanted this, but egos and agendas got in the way and one thing led to another and Devlin was gone. Too bad, really. I'll have more as the day progresses, but a full story will be in tomorrow's paper.
