Huh? They had no idea Freeh would blame the issues on Paterno and the football program? Sorry, not buying it. I think the executive committee got just what they wanted. Whether or not that committee knew the NCAA would use it against them, that part, I don't know. But their selection of Freeh, a guy Corbett recommended, and a guy whose work for FIFA was so shoddy it was completely overruled, is an indication that they wanted just the type of report they got.
And now, other than Lubrano, McCombie, and maybe one or two others, all the other BoT members are kissing the butt of the exec committee.
BULLSHIT!!!! The BoT is covering their own asses!!!

"Emmert indicated only chance to avoid death penalty would be consent decree. The only reason PSU might be given this option is because of actions of BOT and admin the past 8+ months, plus commissioning Freeh."
Yea, I almost puked at that "pat on the back" line.

I would have consulted with the full board. I would have NEVER released Freeh report before we knew its contents. I would have hired BP's public relations folks and gotten ON TOP of the dialogue on DAY 1. The NCAA would have likely faced a different perspective going in.
We have a paid PR guy? Where the hell has he been since November? Id hate to tell the esteemed PR guy, that the media is defining the narrative b/c our PR guy is asleep at the wheel. Our reputation per the media & w/o a response from PSU is that our university concealed facts & conspired to allow a pedephile to rape children on our campus. How is it that 2-4 BOT guys questioning the lack of leadership is hurting our reputation? Somebody has to stand up to the incompetent BOT who alowed ths narrative to continue & allowed the Freeh Report to further that false reputation, without review, and now acts like cowards rather than standing up to defend our proud true reputation. Who the f... is this guy? Thanks alot BOT. We need to change the way the Board is made up. We cant allow people that are not elected & dont have the best interest of the university to run this university. Political appointments must be stopped. And the Ag field needs to be limited. This uni versity needs to be run by the alumni. Period.
Yes..They held all the cards imo. We have to move forward with the hand we've been dealt. Not saying I like it but my entire thought process it what is the best approach to minimizing the impact to Penn State going forward.
Ok so we read the Freeh report, don't release it and find out how bad it is for us. Then what do you do, not release it or change it?
Ok, just got home. What did I miss?
The third worst day in PSU history
Agree. This board reacts to others & tries to acquiesce rather than leading by making tough decisions. We needed a board full of Churchills & we got Chamberlains. Acquiescence ruled the day.
We could have stood for principle, rather than fear. We are a bunch of cowards. Kudos to Lubrano & McCombie for stasnding up for principle.
Why is it that Freeh is not there defending his opinions.
We paid him $6.5million the least he coud do is show up to answer Qs from the board.
Some of you guys are crazy
This guy is an idiot.
They know all the facts now? Please share them with us.
He should have called emmert's bluff. I'd love to play poker with erickson.
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
this guy doesnt' realize that DOE is Dept of Energy. Dept of Education is ED.
I'd like to see how most of us would hold up when staring down the barrel of a .45 with an irrational organization behind the trigger
Ok he calls it and Emmert gives us the death penalty, then what do you say? You would be pissed he didn't take the deal.
You'd love to play poker with a guy who, apparently, had the ability, and was fully ready, to shut down our program for multiple years? Come on
That's my fault. I was typing damn fast.
