Several Penn State trustees have united in filing an appeal yesterday with NCAA which dropped harsh penalties against the university following the Freeh Report findings on the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal.  The trustees state the consent decree the president of Penn State Rod Erickson signed to agree to the NCAA’s sanctions was null and void since Erickson lacked the legal authority to enter the agreement without the board’s approval.  The appeal also includes the following challenges and is expected to be a precursor to a federal lawsuit seeking a judge to invalidate the sanctions:
1.         The NCAA did not give Penn State trustees and the university due process when it did not follow its usual investigation and enforcement procedures
2.         The consent decree is fundamentally unfair because it relies on the Freeh report, which "contains findings and conclusions not that are contrary to the evidence presented
3.         The sanctions are "excessive and unreasonable" because they inflict "permanent damage to an entire generation of student-athletes and coaches who were innocent of any wrongdoing during their time on campus
