the NCAA Settlement Penn State president Eric Barron addressed the media for about 20 minutes this afternoon talking about the agreement that repeals the NCAA s sanctions against Penn State Here are a few of his comments I m pleased we can close this chapter he said and look ahead to the important challenges and opportunities that face Penn State In addressing a few key details of the agreement he mentioned that the 60 million fine imposed on Penn State remains in the state of Pennsylvania first and foremost Of that 48 million goes to the Commonwealth and the other 12 million will remain at Penn State to create an endowment which is a long term investment in programs to help eradicate child abuse Asked about the fate of the Paterno statue and other calls for Penn State to honor Joe Paterno s career Barron said Those who know me know that I prefer not to talk about things that will be a topic of discussion publicly before chatting with lots of people But there will be a time and place Asked what becomes of the Big Ten sanctions including the sharing of football bowl revenues Barron pointed out that the Big Ten is a party to the Athletics Integrity Agreement that will be renegotiated under the terms of the settlement I will discuss it with my fellow presidents Barron said They re expecting that discussion to occur Barron was asked if with the 2012 consent decree now erased this might be a good time for academia to take a fresh look at the NCAA and its powers Hindsight is a fascinating thing Barron began I ve talked to many of my fellow presidents and did so to my ACC representative when I was at Florida State suggesting that the NCAA moved too quickly At the same time they came to their decisions with the best possible motive of not wanting to have such things occur and with the notion that they had a responsibility to look at institutional control I see little purpose in trying to fault them He was asked to talk about how much communication there was with the Board of Trustees in the negotiations with state officials and the NCAA He wouldn t say much except that I hear frequently from my trustees and that s a good thing but negotiation of details is first and foremost with the attorneys Then when you have a sense of what agreement is possible that s the best time to bring it to the board Then they can make the best possible decision And as you can see the vote was unanimous He added that the negotiations were going on right up to that moment presumably meaning right up until the start of the trustees meeting this afternoon Asked again about the Paterno statue he said Same answer I m a boring guy There ll be a good time and place In November President Barron said he was committed to personally reviewing the Freeh Report At today s news conference he said today s events don t change that plan I am very appreciative that we ve hit a tremendous milestone today and that s what we re going to focus on he said but I don t think my responsibilities change Asked if he had a message for students who might be inclined to celebrate today s news he referred to the spontaneous but peaceful rally that took place when Penn State s bowl eligibility was restored last fall Our students acted with a high level of enthusiasm but with a great deal of respect Barron said and although I think I told you I was always worried about such an activity I was very pleased by their behavior And I m hoping from every inch of my body that I can be equally proud today This is something to be very happy about this is not something that should promote destructive behavior in any way shape or form Tina Hay editor Share this Email Print Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google LinkedIn Tumblr Like this Like Loading January 16 2015 at 5 35 pm 4 comments NCAA Sanctions Repealed Paterno s Wins Restored Keith Masser 73 stuck to the script when he opened the Penn State Board of Trustees meeting today saying he had some good news to report that Penn State s World Campus scored a No 1 ranking in the U S News rankings of online programs But a few moments later President Eric Barron took the podium and announced the day s truly big news that Penn State the NCAA and state officials had reached a tentative agreement to roll back the sanctions against Penn State in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal And not long after that the trustees voted unanimously to approve the agreement The NCAA issued a news release spelling out the terms of the agreement the major points being that 1 112 vacated wins 111 belonging to Joe Paterno and one to Tom Bradley 78 are restored or to quote a tweet by Charles Thompson of the Harrisburg Patriot News And move over Bobby Bowden and 2 the 60 million in fine money stays in Pennsylvania But State Sen Jake Corman 93 in a Harrisburg news conference was more blunt The consent decree is hereby repealed he said and all remaining sanctions against Penn State are voided You can read a news release from Corman s office here The trustees vote on the settlement was quick with no discussion or debate before the roll call vote and the vote was unanimous Trustee Anthony Lubrano who invited reporters to an
