New Rumors from Campus

Did you already know that Vicky Tripony and Mark Emmert know each other? Well, take this for what its worth, but the rumor is that she had his ear, which contributed to the narrative and the punitive part of Penn State's punishment.


The other part of the rumor, which is likely pure bullshit, is that she was canned for playing fast and loose with student funds. Can't support that rumor with fact, but I can support the Emmert connection with this:

http://advance.uconn.edu/1998/980223/02239805.htm

"Vicky Triponey brings with her substantial administrative experience in student affairs, impressive organizational and interpersonal skills, a spirit of innovation, and vision," said Emmert. "I am confident she will be a significant partner in the growth and development of the University's student programs, both academic and nonacademic," he said.

So, without the tinfoil hat brigade storming this post, what do we do with this information. Triponey, we know, had an axe to grind. Was Emmert unfairly influenced here? Do we have a right to know what was said in the NCAA meeting?

I am seriously disturbed by this connection, since we all know Triponey was a biased individual.

Also from State College, there was a disturbed individual in town, apprehended without injury, who might have had access to a gun. @ Clearly an enraged football fan.@

But its all good now.
