Exactly what Frazier says now it a bit too late. Must be nice to run and hide after you did the damage.
"One man didn't build this program and one man sure as hell cannot tear it down."
It's because he is the face of a public company (ie Surma and Peetz) Their entire position in this situation is based upon ..."let's not upset the apple cart". "If we come out and condemn JVP and others as the media wants us to ...maybe we can limit bad publicity". It's never been about finding the truth whatever that is...it's always been about "public perception".
Unfortunately Ken was also one of the ones that failed Joe.
What Mr. Frazier said to the OP a month ago.
Since we're funneling all BOT conversation to the pinned topic at the top of the board, feel free to copy and paste the OP there if you want to discuss it. Going to lock this.
Ken, What are you hiding?!?!?
LOL at OP. Next time you speak to this great leader ask him how he reconciles the fact that he keeps a framed photo of Joe in his office with the reality that he was behind the wheel of the bus that backed over him repeatedly?

I have to admit, I've seen the framed picture of Paterno in Frazier's office (below). Like everything else the man tries to spin, the story he tells isn't accurate.
I'm somewhere around 100% sure Ken Frazier is a pedophile, wanting any/all investigations to end as quickly as possible and at any cost to anything around him.
What a POS.
I really have been trying not to be a "conspirancy" theorist wacko but this whole situation makes no sense. He may be and I'm starting to believe it too.
We know he values money and power more than people lives. Vioxx!
Kenny has certainly joined the " SUCK IT" list from here on out...

The part about Mr. Frazier is a joke correct?
not a joke. Either lioninwinter was fooled by Frazier or he someone connected to Frazier that was trying to play a PR card with this post. either way, it's an epic failure.
Honestly I don't understand why the trustees continue to serve. I mean besides the fact that probably over 90% of PSU alumni want them gone. Why do they want to continue to subject themselves to the constant criticism and ridicule. These are mostly all wealthy successful people and I just don't see the incentive for them to continue to serve on the BOT. You would think they would realize it is in everyone's best interest and just resign.
Dominate The State
The only good reasons are 1) Pride and 2) they are trying to cover their own butts. Do you think the CEO of Merck or the President of BNY Mellon want to become known for wrongfully firing Joe Paterno? Or in Ken Fraziers case, for wrongfully bringing about enormously costly and damaging sanctions and a PR disaster to PSU? The answer is no, that just doesnt look good on a resume. Heck, even Adam Taliaferro has got to feel a conflict of interest. He works for Bristol-Myers Squibb, a local pharma in NJ who rivals Merck. Do you think Adam can look at this situation and with complete comfort and objectivity say he is going to battle it out publicly with Frazier, the CEO of Merck? I doubt it. And his bosses at BMS may even be instructing him on this issue as well. At the end of the day, we are seeing the true limitations of the basic structure and mission of a Board of Trustees. The function simply isnt designed to handle this kind of crisis in an effective and responsible manner. Too many natural conflicts of interest.

This guy is getting hammered for no reason. That's too bad.
Which guy? Frazier has brought much of this criticism on himself, although I don't think it is appropriate or productive to call him a pedophile.

I think you just failed the sarcasm test.
Just FYI, petition started by Penn State students for the ouster of Ken Frazier.
