Corbett's role in PSU firings???
Whats your opinion on what Gov. Corbett's role in the firings was? I heard a couple different theories floating around. The following was taken from Wikipedia:
"Corbett became governor on January 18, 2011. One of his first actions was the proposal of a new state budget that would decrease spending by 3%. The proposed budget received significant criticism due to its cuts in state-supported higher education by 50%. Under the new budget, funding granted to the 14 universities of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education and state-related universities Penn State, Pittsburgh, Temple, and Lincoln would be cut in half, totaling $625 million."
Now if I remember correctly, Paterno and Spanier fought this extremely hard because it directly effected Penn State. And now Corbett is on the Penn State board of directors. Seems a little funny to me that the two men that were in opposition to him are now out of a job? Now granted, there were other factors behind their firing, but IMHO, all of the trustees had a little bug in their ear in Tom Corbett.
