FWIW, someone on TOS emailed all of the board members to complain. He just got his first response and the BOT member said this is a fabrication.
These people are determined to ruin our university with their GD arrogance. Their failure in the face of the scandal are epic yet they feel they deserve more!? F them. They are part of the problem.
Edit - I pray this is a fabrication.

They have two tweets ...
@Laschout_org: 1 of 2 The BOT and Erickson are now scheming to screw BOB from agreed upon terms and have made it a priority to retain Joyner as AD...
@Laschout_org: 2 of 2 Erickson and BOT also want to limit influence of Pegula by refusing his $$ intended for athletics
If winning was easy even losers would do it.
I imagine some feelings/ego/pride are hurt if what has been reported about the situation with OB is correct. Not suprising that Joyner would try to save face, and if Erickson is a lame duck why not stick it to people by using his power while he still has it. Seeing how Pegula is one of the wealthiest men in the world I imagine his words hold weight. While things may seem hectic right now, I'd expect someone on the board with balls and a brain to finally step up and put this to rest once and for all. Best ally OB had in all this besides the alumni, faculty, and other coaches, is the media. This info is coming from somewhere and its coming for a reason. If all true, Joyner and Erickson are now the ones holding PSU athletics hostage, and they wont be allowed to do that for very long imo.

Curious if Joyner is putting some pr bs out there to try to create an angle?
Joyner and Erickson working on on this during a non-football weekend makes me think this isn't true. 9-5ers
Actually Joyner came running back into town from hanging out at rosé bowl
I hope this isn't true. In the end there is no such thing as a "permanent" AD. New president can get rid of Joyner as he or she wishes.
I wouldn't expect anyone on the BOT to be like "Yea its crazy right now, things are nuts". However the emails like that are probably flooding in from people so the BOT is feeling the heat. They wont let it go down this way. Not that I have faith in the BOT, but I have faith in dollars and the people with the dollars won't stand for it so the BOT will have to go with them. You don't piss off Terry Pegula, especially after he's already givem more than 100 million dollars at least to the school in the last 5 years.
We get hit...
Up we stand...
Our "own" (supposedly) do their best to knock us back down
we push forward, show a collective heart and spirit....
Our "own" (supposedly) try to take it from us again
Crap needs to stop, at the top

Joyner is COMPLETELY UNQUALIFIED to be AD and the people who hired him should be HELD RESPONSIBLE!!!!!! Every dollar he takes from the university is a fraudulent conveyance of taxpayer dollars. He MUST GO!! NOW!!!!! Not later.....NOW!!!! There need to be demonstrations on campus to expose this incompetence, arrogance, and theft. People must get arrested if you really want anything to happen. Otherwise BOB will get stepped on.
WE ARE! And we will always be...
