STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (August 9, 2012)--Penn State trustees meet this weekend to consider whether to ratify the school's consent decree with the NCAA that imposed penalties for the university’s handling of the Jerry Sandusky child sex scandal.
Board chairwoman Karen Peetz sent an e-mail Thursday to trustees that said there was confusion about how Penn State accepted the sanctions and whether it was the "best course" for the university.
A notice posted on Penn State's website said the Sunday afternoon telephone conference will be broadcast live online.
On July 23, the NCAA 23 barred the school from postseason play for four years, fined it $60 million and invalidated 112 of the football team's wins.
The school acquiesced to the penalties, but some trustees, alumni and others have reacted angrily.
