The New Jersey prospect visited Penn State over the weekend. He's anxious to hear back from the Nittany Lions.

PSU reports $17M in Sandusky costs

Penn State's costs for legal fees, consultants and public relations firms hired to help deal with the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal have reached nearly $17 million. The university said it has spent almost $16.8 million through June 30. Nearly $10 million of that went to seven firms for what Penn State calls internal investigation and crisis communications.

Franco Harris at Penn State game with Sue Paterno Joe Paterno cutout

Former Penn State and NFL fullback Franco Harris was in attendance this past Saturday to watch the Bill O’Brien era debut to a thud when the Nittany Lions lost to Ohio 24-14 from Beaver Stadium. Harris was in attendance with Sue Harris, Joe Paterno’s widow, conservative talk show host John Ziegler and a cardboard cutout of the late Penn State head coach which read “due process...

Can we please just ignore Penn State?

Most everyone I know delighted in the fact that Penn State lost to Ohio from the MAC on Saturday. Serves them right, was the chorus from people rightfully outraged by Penn State’s scandal. Most right minded people recognize that Jerry Sandusky was the original doer of evil, while Joe Paterno, the Penn State faculty and the pervasive religion of Penn State football made the scandal...

When Will Franco Harris Just Let This Joe Paterno Thing Go?

I know your life and career is signified by one magical “immaculate reception” that pulled victory out of certain defeat but Franco Harris just let this one go.  Its over. The former Penn State running back as taken the main(solo) defender position of Joe Paterno to the extreme by placing a cardboard cutout of Paterno holding a sign “Due Process for PSU JVP” in his box...

Ability to make big plays is the real issue

  Penn State’s 24-14 loss to Ohio Saturday has spawned lots of comments and opinions on how this team is “fragile” and that it “ran out of gas” in the fourth quarter. I don’t buy it. That may be the case later in the season, but I don’t believe that was the case against the Bobcats. Look, all we heard about all spring and summer was how much better this new strength...

Banks to Penn State

Penn State landed a commitment on Tuesday, going to California to pick up a pledge from 2013 forward Payton Banks.

Stupid people are fun when they are angry

Yesterday I wrote a post pleading with the world to ignore Penn State. Without rehashing the post, which you can read here, I wanted to address the very first comment I received on the post. I also wanted to take this opportunity to remind you that if you leave a comment on my site, I will try to engage it, either by clarifying what I had to say, or by eviscerating you for being...

Fagnano's Fitting Fall

Sprawled out in the Ohio end zone, grasping for something well beyond his reach, safety Jacob Fagnano’s posture as the game-clinching Ohio Bobcat TD was scored felt like a fitting end to the first game of the post-Paterno era at Penn State. Fitting because Fagnano hailed from the defensive side of the ball. Everyone expected a steep learning curve on offense—especially due to...

Mahon Thrilled With Return to Happy Valley

Randolph (N.J.) High offensive tackle and Penn State commit Brendan Mahon returned to Happy Valley for the season opener against Ohio. And although the Nittany Lions lost, he was thrilled to be back to watch football.

Defense Looks to Rebound vs. UVA
