STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Gov. Tom Corbett took the podium Wednesday, railing against the NCAA for overstepping its authority and announcing a federal lawsuit against the organization.

The 43-page lawsuit was filed Wednesday and seeks to repeal Penn State's sanctions. NCAA vice president and general counsel Donald M. Remy responded in a statement and said he was "disappointed" with Corbett's decision.

Penn State is not part of the lawsuit, and Corbett said he waited this long to fully research the situation and because he didn't want to interrupt the football season.

"If the state of Pennsylvania thinks it's the best decision, it's what they're going to do," Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin said. "We appreciate everything they're doing now and everything the alumni have done for us."
