Emergency BOT meeting tonight at PSU!!!

Board meeting tonight

This should be interesting. What if he did sign the agreement with the NCAA without their consent? Does that make the penalties void? Should be interesting to see what transpires.

Re: Emergency BOT meeting tonight at PSU!!!

What are they going to do? NOT pay the fines? NOT revoke the scholarships? Have the team show up to a bowl game uninvited?

The BOT and Erickson may have some procedural issues between them, but that isn't going to change anything.

If they fire him, they should do it over the phone.

The NCAA has an appeals process. The university can accept the NCAA penalties, or appeal.

I'm guessing that is what will be discussed.

I HOPE that they will discuss the option of ending football at PSU forever, and concentrate on the education and research roles. But I don't expect that.

Re: Emergency BOT meeting tonight at PSU!!!

I don't believe they can appeal anything, since he signed some sort of document saying there wouldn't be any appeals. Ending football is not the answer, though I know it would make all you PSU despisers happy!

I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright

Of everyone involved, I thought Erickson spoke and acted more properly than any of them.

Re: Emergency BOT meeting tonight at PSU!!!

If he violated Standing Order IV, I would assume that it would be handled within the University and has nothing to do with the NCAA. I really don't see the NCAA reversing anything, but his job may be in jeopardy.

Of all the horrible actions (and lack thereof) that have taken place in Happy Valley in the last few years, I'd think Ericksons not following the letter of procedure in accepting the NCAAs punishment would be the least of their problems.

Not if he didn't follow the Standing Order of the Board of Trustees. Provision 2-e of Standing Order IV states the following actions must be approved by the board: Authorization to borrow money; authorization of persons to sign checks, contracts, legal documents, and other obligations, and to endorse, sell or assign securities.

I guess what would be in question is that if agreeing to the sanctions would be considered a contract, legal document or other obligation, which I assume it does.
