Following this morning’s press conference, Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship issued the following statement:

“Coach O’Brien personifies responsible stewardship.  He has, in 12 months, exhibited far more leadership than the supposed leaders of our University.  And as for the direction of the University’s athletic programs as we enter 2013, we eagerly await the hiring of a qualified, permanent athletic director.”

Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship, with more than 15,000 members nationwide, was formed to effect positive change within the Penn State University Board of Trustees.

  1. The issue of “Standing” is a preliminary issue to insure the named Plaintiff, is a proper party to be suing the defendant over the issues raised in the law suit. It is time for us to stand up and join the Corbett law suit against the NCAA

    It is for us individually and collectively to defeat the NCAA. We must stand up so that the fact the horribly ignorant BoT did not do so infuriates us less. The suit is in the interest of everyone who has ever watched PSU on TV or has been at a Penn State sporting event; everyone who has an uncle, aunt, brother, sister, niece, nephew, etc., etc. ad infinitum who is a Penn Starter and understands what the Universal response to the statement, “WE ARE”, can only be PENN STATE. No matter what you may think of Governor Corbett this is not about him this is about us

    A potential problem that Corbett’s law suit is it might be dismissed on the issue of standing, should be elevated by PS4RA petitioning the Federal Court to allow us to join the Plaintive in this cause of action. How many attorney’s are in this organization? Can’t we sit down with the Fed R.C.P. and help out here? Should a meeting be called to authorize filing as Additional Plaintiffs’. Let’s not miss the chance that almost everyone has been waiting for; as a Plaintiff we can request an injunction against the NCAA to keep them from enforcing any of the penalties while our law suit is still pending, a Temporary Restraining Order. Rally the State College Businesses and Associations as Plaintiffs’ who have suffered monetary losses as a result and will again in this new year. If the time to act is not NOW, then when will be the time to act ?
