Penn State Trustees Get Meddlesome

Some at Penn State just can’t let it go

The circus just can’t seem to move on from Happy Valley, as ESPN reports:

At least two Penn State Board of Trustees members intend to file an appeal Monday afternoon with the NCAA over sanctions levied against the university after the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal because they say the NCAA did not give the school due process in meting out its punishment.

Trustees and a person with first-hand knowledge of the discussions said the move is a precursor to a federal lawsuit asking a federal judge to invalidate the sanctions, because trustees expect the NCAA to reject the appeal.

The trustees are also trying to determine whether university president Rodney Erickson had legal authority to sign a consent decree agreeing to the package of sanctions — a $60 million fine, a four-year bowl ban, scholarship losses and the vacating of wins from 1998 through 2011.

Keep up the good work and your eye on what is important, guys.
