Hopefully someone will ask if this is JUST about the $$$.
I think that's a pretty safe bet.
It's pretty dead in SC right now... how's the crowd?
I hope someone asks him:
1. Why now? Is this just about keeping the money in PA or are their other goals?
2. Does he plan on returning all the money the Second Mile affiliates donated to his campaign fund over the years?
Gov. Corbett news conference @ USTREAM: Live video starting at 11 a.m. Pa. Gov. Tom Corbetts press conference regarding his lawsuit against the NCAA.. Lo...
"Whoever’s trying to kill me isn’t getting the job done. But one day, I’m going to punch that f___r in the face."
A whole group of people has walked in behind the podium, including former Lions Trey Bauer, Tim Sweeney, Kenny Jackson, Justin Kurpeikis, Todd Rucci and Mike Lukac.

A bunch of student leaders here as well.
Press release issued before remarks says "the governor, on behalf of Pennsylvania's citizens, asked the court to throw out all the NCAA's sanctions, including the $60 million fine, and asked that the court declare the consent agreement illegal."
It's about to get real....
Corbett: the NCAA "piled on."
Corbett: "These sanctions did not punish Sandusky or those who have been criminally charged. Rather, they punished past, present and future student-athletes."
Lot of talk about the sanctions.
"NCAA did it because they benefited from the penalties."
"NCAA sanctions were overreaching and unwarranted."
"We will be asking the court to throw out all of the NCAA sanctions against Penn State."
Corbett: "The NCAA did it because they benefited from the penalties."
"We should stand up and fight for those who have been punished unfairly by the NCAA. ... After months of research and deliberation the attorneys and I have concluded that the sanctions were overreaching. ... We will ask the court to throw out all of the NCAA sanctions against Penn State. These sanctions are an attack on the past, present and future students of Penn State, residents of the Commonwealth ..."
"I cannot and will not stand by and let it happen without a fight."
"NCAA cannot make up their own rules."
Saying they forced the PSU president to accept the penalties under threat of death penalty. Saying they aren't following their own rules.
Corbett: "The NCAA's leadership can't make up its own rules."
"A handful of top NCAA officials simply inserted themselves into an issue they had no authority to (sic) under their own bylaws."
"DOMINATE the state" - James Franklin 1/11/14
"NCAA officials and leaders worked together to take down Penn State football."
"Emmert seized the opportunity for publicity." (like Corbett isn't doing the same thing)
Corbett, you pull this off, I wonder if you'll just manager to stay in office...
"Wanted to thoroughly research the issue, make sure we were on solid footing."
Didn't want to make the same mistake NCAA made and assess it quickly. Didn't want to take away from the football team and file during the season.
