Onward State: Former PSU NCAA Rep Critical of Sanctions
Several Penn Staters have been vocal about the NCAA’s recent actions, including a former Penn State NCAA representative.
On Monday afternoon, Dr. Scott Kretchmar, Penn State’s NCAA Faculty Athletics Representative from 2000-10, guest lectured a communications class before an audience of about 70 students, saying that “Penn State is being used and abused by the NCAA.”
And, if you want to hear more from Dr. Kretchmar and others regarding the direction of the NCAA, the College of Communications is hosting a panel that will discuss the future of the NCAA (7 p.m., State Theatre).
The panelists include:
- Gene Corrigan, a former NCAA president (1995-1997) who was also the commissioner of the ACC from 1987 to 1997 and the athletic director at Notre Dame.
- Amy Perko, the executive director of the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics.
- The aforementioned R. Scott Kretchmar, a professor of exercise and sport science at Penn State who was an inaugural chair of the NCAA Scholarly Colloquium on College Sports.
- Thomas O’Toole, the assistant managing editor for USA Today Sports.
A live stream of the event will be available here.
