Yes, to discuss ratifying it if my understanding is correct.
If the BOT ratifies the consent decree, you can kiss any hopes of an appeal/lawsuit goodbye.
Dominate The State
That's the point!
There needs to be a list made of those who vote to ratify the consent decree. And each of them voted out as they come up.
A BOT member voting for the consent degree means AT LEAST one of the following possibilities:
1. They have a skeleton in their closet that they don't want found with additional investigation.
2. They are not putting the university's best interest first.
3. They are incredibly stupid.
None of these are qualities we want in a sitting board member, and they must be removed ASAP.
I'm sure the governor is also pressuring the BOT to accept the decree
He shouldn't be. Our "lovely" governor said last night he is behind BOB 159 percent!
That would really suck and the board should be ashamed for allowing themselves to being bullied by the NCAA. I have never seen a school who has never violated any rules be punished to this level just to please the public. I know O'Brien stresses let's move forward, but how can you do that when you are being so unfairly punished and it's evident.

My thoughts too. Probably holding next years budget over their heads to make this go away.
Is the entire board invited, or just select members?
We cant vote most of these people out.
"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."
Since the decree hinges on the validity of the Freeh report, I wonder how many trustees have actually read beyond the conclusions or looked at his "evidence". I'd bet fewer than half.
This is complete B$ if they accept this! It would truly show that their are more skeletons in the closet. We as alum and supporters of PSU, must find a way to end this garbage from our administration!
Perhaps someone should play the Rya Blehar interview for them, remember the Blehar..........
Well...he got his half million dollar donation from the Second Mile during his campaign--knowing about the ongoing investigation!!! Im sure he wants this to go away quickly, that two faced SOB!
The Governor is pulling all the strings regarding this matter. Rodney Erickson is the Scarecrow, The Cowardly Lion, and the Tin man all rolled into one. The Gov is dictating to Erickson which way to go and he is following his orders.
Did the check come directly from the second mile or from people within the organization that would have given him money either way?
Big difference here.
They could at least wait until Shultz and Curley's trials before signing this garbage.
There is no going back IMO, they will sign it, approve it, rubber stamp it, whatever. But we got a few fighters now McCombie, Lubrano, Myers, +1. The Blehar report can't get done fast enough. This is gonna be interesting.
They will close ranks, vote "unanimously" and it will be re-signed. Due to the charters and bylaws of the BOT no one will be able to start naming names on how the vote truly went down (if it differed).
This stops any lawsuits from happening and ends any pie-in-the-sky whimsical fantasies the Paterno loyalists have about restoring his "wins record".
Maybe after this meeting people can start moving forward instead of harping over a statue that was torn down and some wins that were taken away
The former players, Paternos, and individual trustees are appealing as "involved parties" or "interested parties" to the sanctions. I'm not sure that anything the BOT does on Sunday technically impacts their appeals or lawsuits, although if the BOT ratifies the consent decree, as a practical matter that undercuts their arguments.
Hasn't stopped you from harping about familiar themes, though.
F the NCAA
F the BOT
I understand your frustration, but the reality of the situation is that these are risk averse people that will take the path of least resistance. It is easier for the BOT to say this was a football problem, ask everyone to sacrifice to pay the penalties, and have certainty moving forward than it is to get into a protracted legal fight with unknown outcomes and that both risks further bad publicity for the university and risks leaving the BOT liable for failing in their oversight or fiduciary duties to the university.

Only a few are elected by alumni.
I believe it was the S.M.
