Don't know if any of you listened in on this, but it was kind of interesting. Gene Marsh had the most interesting comments when he explained how the NCAA works. I have the dialog of it if anyone wants to read it, but he basically explained how proceedings go in an organization comprised of voluntary members. Many people championing the "due process" stuff and "proof beyond reasonable doubt" really need to hear/read his statement.
He also made it perfectly clear that it was the "culture" at PSU that brought about the drastic sanctions. It kind of fell on deaf ears as half the board defended the "culture" as having produced teams of honor both on the field and in the classroom. However, one board member basically told the others that they needed to get their shit together because his gauge of the nation through his travels is that the vast majority of people think PSU got off easy with the NCAA. Another pointed out that they really needed to offer their Pres. their fullest support or they will face an impossible task of finding a new Pres. when his term runs up in the middle of 2014.
From what I heard, more than half of the board really gets it, and the rest are still really too butt hurt to see anything but red. Interesting stuff.
