Penn State: NCAA will get information it wants on Sandusky sex abuse scandal within days
July 18, 2012

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - As the NCAA considers whether Penn State should face penalties following the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal — including a possible shutdown of its celebrated football program — the university says it will respond within days to the governing body's demand for information.
 ::snipping2::
The NCAA is investigating whether Penn State lost "institutional control" over its athletic program and violated ethics rules. Its probe had been on hold for eight months while former FBI Director Louis Freeh conducted an investigation on behalf of the school's board of trustees. Freeh's 267-page report, released last week, asserted that late football coach Joe Paterno and three top officials buried allegations against Sandusky, his retired defensive coordinator, more than a decade ago to protect the university's image.
 ::snipping2::
Erickson also addressed the controversy swirling around the statue of Paterno outside Beaver Stadium, saying that no decision has been made on whether to take it down. The bronze statue had been a rallying point for students in the months since Sandusky's November arrest.
 ::snipping2::
Paternoville, a tent city outside Beaver Stadium where students camp out for prime football tickets, was scrapped Monday in favor of Nittanyville.

Nike took Paterno's name off a child care center on its corporate campus on Thursday, the day the Freeh report was released. The halo that had floated above Paterno's head in a State College mural was removed Saturday. In its place the artist added a blue ribbon in support of child abuse awareness.

Brown University in Rhode Island, the late coach's alma mater, said that not only had it removed Paterno's name from its head football coaching position and a student award, but it's also reviewing whether to remove him from the school's athletic hall of fame, too.

And a Connecticut middle school said it would paint over its own mural of Paterno.

Although there was some negative reaction to Paterno immediately after Sandusky's arrest — the Big Ten dropped Paterno's name from the conference championship trophy where it had been next to that of Amos Alonzo Stagg, who won almost 100 fewer games — the pace has picked up since the Freeh report was released.

Graham Spanier, Cynthia Baldwin put a stop to 2004 trustees vote that would have strengthened oversight: Report
By Dustin Hockensmith, The Patriot-News
Published: Tuesday, July 17, 2012, 11:54 PM     Updated: Wednesday, July 18, 2012, 12:21 AM

Yet another missed opportunity has been uncovered in the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal.

In 2004, former Penn State University president Graham Spanier and then-board chairwoman Cynthia Baldwin said no to a proposal that would have given the board of trustees more oversight power over Spanier and coach Joe Paterno, according to an ESPN.com report.

The board proposed a vote on the measure months after Paterno refused to be ousted as head football coach. One trustee told ESPN that "Spanier and Baldwin put a stop" to a full vote from the university's 32 trustees, saying "they didn't want the added scrutiny."

This was not a MISSED OPPORTUNITY...it was another in the series of BLATANT COVERUPS. Why hasn't Spanier been indicted? Baldwin's role in the Grand Jury is becoming less "coincidental" and more "contrived."

Will this ever end?

PENN STATE...THIS IS YOUR LEGACY.

Inappropriate? Alert us.ReplyPost new

Fog, excellent comments. Yes, this certainly was a yet ANOTHER MISSED OPPORTUNITY.
*
Spanier SHOULD have been and NEEDS to be indicted, yesterday.
*
Baldwin had NO business being allowed to be there for the GJ. There is a complete CONFLICT of INTERESTS. I see that she too, is a part of the 'protected' class/club.
*
The new prez. stating that it is "up to each individual board member to decide if they should resign"
*is absurd, to say the least. They ALL should resign or be thrown off the BofT's.
*
Then, if ALL of the BofT's resigns (as they should but won't) and/or are removed, then my only question is who has the authority to remove/fire the new prez? He cometh and is cut from the same cloth as all of the rest of them.

Brennan: Penn State leadership stuck in the Bronze Age
By Christine Brennan, USA TODAY
July 18, 2012

Penn State has said it will make a decision soon on whether it will allow the statue of Joe Paterno to stay or go. But, really now, how long should it take a university to determine if it wants to keep a statue honoring the man who willingly allowed a child rapist to roam its football facility with the boys he victimized for 13 years?

Penn State should discuss ending football
By Bob Ryan
July 19, 2012

 ::snipping2::
Why do I think the football program should cease functioning for a minimum of two years? It’s very simple. Penn State University needs to demonstrate to the rest of us it knows why it exists. And by not addressing the topic, these people are saying that the reason Penn State exists is to enjoy seven or eight festive Saturdays each autumn, plus whatever relevant or irrelevant bowl games might follow.

Those at the high school that encouraged this victim to rethink his reporting should have their teaching credentials and face charges of tampering with a witness.  This type of behavior will not change until EVERYONE involved faces consequences.

Steve Garban, Former Chair at Onset of Sandusky Scandal, Resigns from Board of Trustees
by Nate Mink on July 19, 2012 8:46 PM


Steve Garban has resigned from the Penn State Board of Trustees.
Garban, the embattled former chair of the board when the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal first came to light, faced mounting criticism for his handling of the scandal.
The resignation was reflected on the university Board of Trustees website Thursday night, along with a statement from chairwoman Karen Peetz in response to Garban’s resignation letter.
“Earlier today I accepted Steve Garban’s resignation from the Board of Trustees,” the statement reads. “I want to sincerely thank him for his many years of service to Penn State University and for the leadership he exhibited today.
“Steve dedicated his adult life to Penn State, devoting more than 33 years of service to help make this a better institution. Few love this University more than Steve, and his passion and commitment to the University have never been more apparent than they are today. This selfless leadership exemplifies the culture shift we are working hard to create.
“I will miss Steve and his many contributions to the Board, but I understand and respect his reasons for leaving."

The city of Grambling is asking the NCAA to vacate some of Joe Paterno's wins so that former Grambling coach Eddie Robinson can return to being the all-time winningest coach in Division I football history.
The Shreveport (La.) Times reported Thursday the Grambling city attorney, Pamela Breedlove, in concert with the mayor, wrote a three-page letter to the NCAA on Wednesday.

No Paterno film at Kirby
Steve Mocarsky
July 16, 2012

 Friday showing of a documentary film about Joe Paterno at the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre has been canceled.

A statement on the Kirby Center website reads: “In light of the most-recent events surrounding Penn State University, we will not be hosting a screening of ‘The Joe We Know’ at this time.”

Kirby Center Executive Director Marilyn Santarelli said she and the Kirby staff – along with the show’s promoter – made the decision as a team.

“It was just a very, very sensitive time and we felt it was really the most sensitive decision,” Santarelli said.
