Penn State Board Of Trustees Meeting Wednesday To Discuss Graham Spanier's Status, According To Report

Blue White Illustrated is reporting that the Penn State Board of Trustees will meet Wednesday to discuss the status embattled School President Graham Spanier.

Spanier has gone silent in recent days after releasing an initial statement pledging "unconditional support" for athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz.

He also apparently nixed Joe Paterno's scheduled press conference on Tuesday due to legal concerns. Paterno was reportedly disappointed that his weekly press conference would not be held.

Calls for Spanier to resign or be removed from his post have been coming in fast and furious locally and nationally. Despite many calls for him to publicly comment further on the allegations, he has refused to do so since announcing the that Curley and Schultz would be leaving the university.

It seems to be a foregone conclusion that Spanier will lose his job over this controversy. He may also still be charged by the Pennsylvania Attorney General in some manner. At this point, it's just a question of how soon.
