Lawyer: NCAA actions affected entire PSU community
The other 18 plaintiffs are:
_Trustees Ryan McCombie, Anthony Lubrano, Adam Taliaferro, Peter Khoury and Al Clemens. McCombie, Lubrano and Taliaferro weren’t on the board in November 2011, when the board fired Paterno _a decision that still irks many alumni and former players. Taliaferro is also a former player who gained notoriety for his recovery from a severe spinal cord injury during a game in 2000.
McCombie, in a letter Wednesday to trustees chair Keith Masser explaining his position, said the Penn State case was an example of how the NCAA was an “out-of-control monopoly” that uses its power to threaten and bully members.
Khoury is a graduate student and a gubernatorial appointee to the board in October 2011, a month before the scandal hit. Clemens was on the board in 1998 and 2001, during which Freeh said Paterno and the school officials covered up allegations against Sandusky.
_Faculty members Peter Bordi, Terry Engelder, Spencer Niles and John O’Donnell. The faculty has suffered “collateral damage” from the sanctions, Kelly said, due to the trickle-down impact of the scandal. He included attracting and recruiting faculty and top-flight students, and pay raises as areas that might be affected.
_Former players Anthony Adams, Gerald Cadogan, Shamar Finney, Justin Kurpeikis, Rich Gardner, Josh Gaines, Patrick Mauti, Anwar Phillips and Michael Robinson. Each played between 1998 and 2011 _ the years during which the NCAA vacated 111 wins under Paterno as part of the sanctions. That resulted in Paterno no longer holding the record for major college victories.
Of the group, Robinson might be the most notable as an NFL fullback with the Seattle Seahawks.
Sandusky’s arrest in November 2011 ignited one of the worst scandals in the history of college athletics.
“We talk about transparency and getting to the bottom of it,” Kelly said. “We talk about that for the victims as well. In my view, the victims haven’t had the opportunity to have this matter fully reviewed.”
Sandusky was sentenced to at least 30 years in prison in October following his conviction last summer on dozens of counts of child sex abuse covering allegations on and off campus.
