I read that, I can't believe that argument.
If the first person in that job should have known that was unethical, why in the world shouldn't the second person in that job know it's unethical? It makes no sense.
Yeah, it's BS and they know it. Luckily, there is zero accountability with internal reports (as we know). There is little doubt that the law firm and the NCAA cut out certain parts of the report and came up with lame excuses just in case someone would uncover them.
Absolutely. Which is why I think the NCAA will make a deal with Corbett if the their request to to dismiss is rejected. There is so much crap within that organization, they no way in hell want a state's lawyers going through it all.
Could you imagine what Corbett could leak? That's what he would do too, slowly leak everything that they find until the NCAA bends.

He can just give the info to Sara Ganim!
Where do things currently stand with PA vs NCAA?
wondering that too - may have to wait for RMJ to chime in
Yeah I'd be interested to know if Rmj has heard anything new or not, but I was asking about where we are in regards to the judge ruling on dismissal. Are we waiting on the NCAA, PA, or is it in the judge's hands now?
As far as i know its in the judges hands whether proceed or dismiss
Forgive me if a two year bowl ban doesn't garner sympathy from me in light of what we are facing for breaking no rules. I didn't say that I fault Miami and what they are doing to handle it. I just find it laughable that people are making them out to be some persecuted school and think that we are the Devil's minions on Earth.

Most importantly, if we vote for you and you get elected, will we still be able to have a line of communication open with you on this board?
Sam: Did you notice that I've put one of my emails out there for people to use? I suspect if I am fortunate enough to get elected that I won't be doing much emailing with the 600,000 or so constituents, but I intend to keep in touch with alumni. The general interest on this board to things electoral and the like hasn't been overwhelming, but that might change if my role becomes bigger. I'll visit any civil message board or social medium on which I can have substantial contact with alums.
I've already indicated that, if I win, I want to visit as many alumni groups as I can before the July 1st beginning of the term--so I can HEAR from people what I need to present to the rest of that unfortunate BOT.
A downvote for being honest? Ok. I intend to be in close contact with alums. If posters want to communicate with me here, I'll be here.

Man do I wish that there was some kind of evidence out there that those two jokers had an affair. That would really explain a lot of the venom from Dr. Evil.

Correct. From the docket it looks like all of the motion to dismiss briefing was completed on 3/14. Now it's the waiting game for the judges decision, which hopefully comes sooner rather than later.
Well at least they allowed a culture of drunken rioting to occur at UConn before Emmert sent his bulldog-faced under-desk troll after those bad, bad college students.
In response to the drunken rioting this spring at the University of Connecticut, Chancellor Mark Emmert has named a special committee to develop ideas for preventing future problems.The Special Task
Corbett trying to speed up the other case.
Gov. Corbett is attempting to squash the NCAA's lawsuit that seeks to overturn the law he signed requiring Penn State's $60 million fine be kept completely in-state.
It's been an interesting last couple of months. After deciding that I'd run for a seat on the BOT, I submitted my materials to PS4RS, trying to get one of the three endorsements. I spent weeks encouraging folks on various message boards where I seem to have considerable support to join PS4RS so they could have a small voice in the endorsement process, and then the committee announced that I wasn't even one of the final six. And then Anthony Lubrano, with whom I had had conversations, announced his endorsement, one of which went to a long-time politician who admitted that he'd lobbied Anthony for months to get it. Nobody had had an opportunity to vote for me. Although I very much want to see Suhey and Deviney voted off the BOT, I believe--right now--that I am a serious candidate, with a serious chance to be one of the final three elected. Apparently a lot of people believe that I can bring something different to the BOT--maybe a little courage, and a clear willingness to stand up for Penn State when other people just don't want to hear it. I don't have deep pockets, and haven't hired a political consultant. I do apparently have people who believe in me. And I know that I've outworked the other candidates, meeting many hundreds of alums at multiple chapter events. And we'll see if all that's enough. I'm not declaring that I'm going to win; I'm just declaring that I hope that I deserve consideration for your vote. http://www.facebook.com/DavidMullaly4PSUTrustee
You've got my vote David. I'm not going to be satisfied until all the original BOT are gone in disgrace. Make the alumni proud.
Unfortunately it may take that long. But in my mind it's more than just rescinding the sanctions. I won't be satisfied until Emmert is fired and the NCAA is dissolved. Nothing short of that is a win to me.
“Actions speak louder than words and if Suhey disagreed with the actions the board was taking he had both an obligation and a duty to speak up and cast his vote accordingly. The fact that he failed to do so only underscores the point that he is not fit to serve on the board a day longer,” the letter states.
A letter released today from several former Penn State football players urges lettermen to vote against Paul Suhey.
"I like your head, it's a good look." - James Franklin, to a bald reporter asking a question.
That's a really important letter in terms of the upcoming alumni trustee election. I thought Deviney was already toast. I think Suhey is about to join her.
By the way, any of you can help with this effort. I actually emailed every alumni chapter leader or president with a useable email address, providing a campaign text, indicating that I didn't expect an endorsement, but asking that they consider providing the info to their members. I only heard back from nine, but they all indicated that they would certainly share the info, and about five of them said they already were supporting me--having gotten info from PSU sports message boards.
Anyone here can do something to help with the effort--and you need to understand that you're in good company. Email old college buddies. PM tailgate partners. If I can email folks in Pakistan and China, you can help locally.
Who is Ray Blehar and why are the fools on BWI hanging on to his every word. You would think they would learn with Ziegler proving himself to be scum, and actually coming to harm the Paterno family cause.
I've actually talked to both of them, and Blehar seems to be a legitimate investigator who appears to have a reasonably healthy perspective. However, I still wouldn't take anything that he asserts as gospel without independent confirmation. Mr. Ziegler? Not so much.
Exactly how is Ziegler proving himself to be scum? Are you basing this on Scott Paterno's comments?
How is what he is doing harming the Paterno cause?
URGENT: I SERIOUSLY NEED YOUR HELP—IT’S THAT SIMPLE
Folks, my campaign is at a crossroads. Some of you know that PS4RS is paying for substantial advertising for their three endorsed candidates, and is offering free signs to anybody living in the State College area. One candidate already has up a digital billboard sign out on 322 in Boalsburg. Who knows what a few other deep-pocketed candidates have in mind? As many of you know, I’m a retired high school teacher, so I’m not a wealthy man. I’ve had a few friends willing to help with some expenses, but I simply can’t afford anything high-end.
What I could really use is some personal help. I’d like to put together a group of about two dozen supporters who are willing to help me canvass tailgaters around the stadium on Blue-White Saturday. I can provide some business card sized cards with some basic campaign info on them, and I’ll provide a really ugly David Mullaly for Alumni Trustee t-shirt to anybody willing to help. We did something very similar to this last October before the OSU game, and volunteers seemed to enjoy making the effort. We can win this thing with people rather than expensive campaign stuff. But I can’t do it without your boots on the ground.
If you can help with this effort, please email me at loonielion@gmail.
In addition, I’d like to provide about fifty yard signs to people living in the State College area. If any of you live in the area or can talk a local into displaying a sign, I’d love to hear from you.
