As of 3:50, the Penn State student ticket exchange had zero tickets listed for purchase. Fans seeking non-student tickets are seeing rising costs as well. On Stub Hub, the lowest tickets are starting at $144 and the highest reach $5,000. Tickets range in price on Craigslist, but the validity of items on the site often varies as well.
There have not been too many positive vibes in Penn State over the past few weeks, but as we come to terms with the allegations against our university, there is something we can take solace in and celebrate. Yesterday, former Penn State Football player Adam Taliaferro was elected to a seat on the Gloucester County Board of Freeholders in New Jersey.
Not one person could envision what has taken place in Happy Valley over these past few days. In what seemed like the blink of an eye, everything has changed. Our university is in shambles, and just one man is holding himself accountable.
In January of 2010, Penn State hired Cynthia Baldwin as the university's full-time general counsel and chief legal officer. This wouldn't have been notable, if it weren't for the fact that she was the first in-house lawyer the university ever had. Before Baldwin, Penn State relied on Wendell Courtney, an attorney in the Central Pennsylvania law firm of McQuaide-Blasko, for most of its legal work. In addition to serving as primary counsel for the university, he also did work, pro bono, for The Second Mile charity.
Rodney Erickson has been the Executive Vice President and Provost of the University since 1999. Speculation had indicated that former Pennsylvania Governor and Director of Homeland Security Tom Ridge might be brought in as interim President. While the Trustees may be appointing someone to lead in the interim, it is Erickson who currently has the experience necessary to run the University on a day-to-day basis, and according to the Express-Times, is the most likely heir-apparent to replace Spanier in his exit.
