On ESPN last night, Chris Fowler suggested the action of the Penn State Board of Trustees was a business decision rather than a moral decision. If he is correct, the event is even more tragic. And, one wonders if this could be proved if it would not be appropriate to elect a new Board for they would really be doing the same that it appears Paterno may have done – simply made a decision in his own best interest.
Someone must stand and declare this was more than saving face for Penn State. The action of the Board must represent a certain moral authority.
