Today, we learned that the very trustees who voted against opposing the NCAA Consent Decree have now secretly penned an agreement with the NCAA that would supersede the original document. In excluding their fellow trustees from this discussion, the trustees behind this new agreement are flouting the recommendations of the Freeh Report that they so strongly supported. Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship urges Sen. Corman, Mr. McCord and Judge Covey to reject this last-ditch, face-saving effort by the trustees whose errors have been so costly to Penn State. Our 40,000 members want to shine the court’s spotlight into the dark corners of the original Consent Decree and hold accountable those who fraudulently scapegoated the entire Penn State community for the criminal actions of one man. Penn Staters for Responsible Stewardship wholeheartedly supports the nine alumni-elected trustees who have been fighting for more than three years to defend Penn State and its honor.”


  1. Jake, Don’t give in, don’t give up. Sanctions are only half the issue. The NCAA needs the same accountability expected of its members.
