STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Ua Outlet Store . -- The NCAA asked a Pennsylvania court on Tuesday to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the family of the late coach Joe Paterno that seeks to overturn the sanctions against Penn State for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. Some trustees, former players and coaches and current faculty members are also taking part in the same lawsuit, which the NCAA said was flawed and contained "various significant legal deficiencies." College sports governing body said in the filing in Centre County court late Tuesday that the civil suit must be dismissed in part because the university itself isnt part of the suit. The sanctions handed down in July 2012 were agreed to by the NCAA and the university president. The NCAA also firmly denied a claim that it had conspired with former FBI director Louis Freehs team in formulating the sanctions. Freeh led the schools internal investigation into the scandal, and the Paterno family and three former school officials have vehemently denied Freehs scathing allegations of a coverup. "Their suit complains primarily about the conclusions of the Freeh Report, conducted at the behest of the Penn State Board, and the universitys acceptance of its findings," NCAA chief legal officer Donald Remy said in a statement outlining the organizations arguments. "The NCAA did not commission the Freeh Report nor had any role in it. It was the NCAAs first response to the case since the lawsuit was filed in late May. The NCAA also asked for related complaints against NCAA president Mark Emmert and Oregon State president Ed Ray to be dismissed for lack of merit. Ray was chair of the NCAA executive committee when the penalties were announced. "Universities must be free to manage their own affairs, including their membership in the NCAA, without interference by disappointed or disgruntled individuals," Remy said. "While the plaintiffs may be unhappy with the conclusions and universitys acceptance of the Freeh Report, the plaintiffs in this case were not sanctioned by the NCAA and have no legal basis to sue." Paul Kelly, a lawyer representing the plaintiffs other than the Paterno family, said Tuesday he had not a chance yet to review the NCAAs lengthy response. The landmark sanctions were announced a year ago Tuesday, on July 23, 2012. They included a four-year bowl ban, steep scholarship cuts and a $60 million fine. The penalties, and the NCAAs handling of the Penn State case, remain the subject of scrutiny among some alumni, area residents and Pennsylvania politicians, as well as in the courts. Earlier Tuesday, three trustees who took seats earlier this month offered support for the five board colleagues involved in the litigation. The suit said that the NCAA bypassed the organizations own rules in levying penalties against the football program with uncharacteristic speed. The lawsuit also attacks Freehs handling of the internal investigation, along with how and why the NCAA used Freehs report as a basis for sanctions. "We firmly believe that truth and justice should never fear an open hearing and review -- whether in the courts or before the Board of Trustees," trustees Ted Brown, Barbara Doran and William Oldsey said in their joint statement. The alumni-elected trustees elected this spring were endorsed by an alumni watchdog group that has been critical of the decisions of board leaders after the scandal began with Sanduskys arrest in November 2011, including Paternos firing. The NCAA filing came on the same day that Penn State issued a statement on bowl revenue. The schools nearly $2.3 million share of bowl revenue has been divided among the Big Tens 12 member schools, including Penn State, to distribute for causes focused on child protection or advocacy. The school said the individual share for each school amounted to more than $188,000. The Nittany Lions finished the 2012 season bowl-eligible at 8-4, but were banned from the post-season as part of NCAA sanctions for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal. The $2.3 million represents Penn States share of conference bowl revenue had the school been allowed to play in the post-season. Penn State said its portion of the carved-up bowl share would be funneled through the Centre County United Way with instructions to split the money between the Stewards of Children program and the Childrens Advocacy Center. Coach Bill OBrien and three players are scheduled to take part in Big Ten media days beginning Wednesday in Chicago. Under Armour Outlet . A forerunning sled crashed into the worker Thursday at the Sanki Sliding Center. The unidentified worker broke both legs and was airlifted to a nearby hospital. Under Armour Clearance http://www.uaoutlet.us/ . -- Ty Montgomery had 290 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns, and fifth-ranked Stanford held on to beat No. ENDICOTT, N.Y. -- Kenny Perrys magical ride continues. Chasing his third victory of the year on the Champions Tour, Perry shot a 7-under 65 on Friday to take a one-shot lead after the first round of the Dicks Sporting Goods Open. Perry, the Senior Players and U.S. Senior Open winner this summer, had three birdies over the final four holes to surge past Bart and Brad Bryant and Joel Edwards. Esteban Toledo, Jeff Freeman, Rick Fehr, and Russ Cochran were tied for fifth at 67 as more than half the field broke par at the short-and-narrow En-Joie Golf Club under nearly ideal scoring conditions. Perrys round turned with a brilliant shot at the par-5 12th hole. He holed a 6-iron from 187 yards for eagle. He also had six birdies to go with one bogey, hitting 15 fairways and putting just 26 times. "I was 3-under par, playing nicely, cruising along," said Perry, who leads the Champions Tour in money winnings with over $1.5 million. "You have a lightning bolt hit you like that -- Hey man, we can shoot a low score. It really pumped me up. It really got me excited. It got me motivated. It made me more aggressive." Just one shot behind, it felt like the good old days for the Bryants -- save the aches and pains. They were tied for the lead until Perry came along in the final group. "Someone looked at the scoreboard and said, Man, that Bryant, he must be good," Brad said, smiling broadly. "Hes leading the tournament and went back out for 18 more (holes). " Bart, at 50 a rookie on the senior tour, is trying to recapture a lot of what he lost at the end of his PGA Tour career, when two wrist surgeries kept him away from the game for three years. "It was frustrating. It was tough. I was out for a good three years and well over two that I couldnt even putt or chip or anything," Bart said. "Honestly, I really thought that I was probably done. It was a long three years. Just to be out here playing, it just feels so good." Bart birdied No. 2, hitting sand wedge to about 10 feet right of the hole and made a good putt after missing one on the opening hole. At No. 12 he hit to 6 inches out of a greenside bunker and made another birddie, then hit 5-iron at the par-3 14th hole to 15 feet and made that. Under Armour Shoes Cheap. He capped the round with a 30-foot birdie putt on the closing hole. "When I first came out here this year, I didnt have a lot of game," said Bart, whose best finish so far this year is a tie for fourth two weeks ago at the 3M Championship. "My golf muscles were not built back up. I just wasnt back at the level that I was when I left, or even close. As the years gone on, Ive gotten a little bit stronger, Ive lost a little bit of pain, and Im starting to get some of those shots back in my arsenal, so I feel like Im kind of creeping in on some really good golf and maybe having the ability to compete. To win out here is very tough." If not for a bogey at the par-3 fourth hole, Brad Bryant would have had a share of the lead. Still, despite a bad right foot that hobbled him all last year and an operation that has not provided any improvement to his health, Brad had a stellar round. He made three putts inside 6 feet, chipped in from 18 feet for birdie at the par-3 14th hole, and closed his round with a 12-foot birdie putt at No. 18. Happy with his round. Even happier with that of his brother. "Seeing Bart up there is always a good thing. Hes world-class," Brad said. "It was really unfortunate that his wrists basically disintegrated. All the cartilage just went away and the doctors couldnt figure out why. "I had a nice career on the PGA Tour, but I never was good as Bart. He was top 30 in the world for a couple of years. If he could get back physically, just healthy, every time hes been healthy hes really played well." Edwards started strong, rolling in a 20-foot birdie putt at No. 2, then smoked the back nine with four birdies to match his best round of the year. Since tying for seventh at the Principal Charity Classic in early June, his best finish has been a tie for 35th at the U.S. Senior Open. "It was a good, solid round. It was very important for me mentally to get that under your belt and see if you can do it again," the 51-year-old Edwards said. "Its been a long time since I played that well. Thats exciting."
