John Berman to Gov. Corbett: "You put football first"

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett (R) makes his case to Starting Point as to why he’s suing the NCAA over Penn State sanctions months after his office came out with a statement in July that accepted the penalties as the right course of action.

Gov. Corbett says, “I held off. I didn’t want to interfere with the momentum that the team had. Coach O’Brien had done a great job with the team. The final decision to go forward wasn’t made until October. The lawsuit then was drafted; we went through many variations. And at the end of the season was when I made my decision that we would announce it.”

CNN Anchor John Berman says, “You put football first…. If the case was so important, why not bring it up when you’re ready to bring it up. You put football first, which is one of the criticisms of Penn State all along.”

Corbett responds, “This is going to be a very long case and the start of that case can easily wait until after the end of the football season, which we did.”

Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs weekday mornings from 7-9am ET on CNN.
