Alright, so between the Penn State news and a sudden change of plans for this weekend, I did not get around to posting what I should have this week. I will try to get caught up with it throughout the next few days between my other assignments.
For those who don’t follow me on twitter, I found out Thursday that I would be going to Indianapolis on a credential for the NASCAR race. This resulted in me working till 2am Saturday morning to finish off a huge catering order, then driving through the night to make it here in time for Saturdays events.
As soon as the Sprint Cup race is over tomorrow, I have to drive 16-hours to Newport, RI for Big East media day and the clambake that begins at 7pm on Monday.
I did get to spend a few minutes talking with Aaron Torres (@Aaron_Torres) who is at his first ever NASCAR race on a really neat assignment that you can read more about here.
If you are a NASCAR fan, be sure to check back for some photos from the weekend, plus I will be covering the next two races at well — Pocono and Watkins Glen. Of course, I will be injecting plenty of college football stuff in between.

This window message leans toward the more...

Two of the most painful penalties for Penn State and all the recent scandals were that Penn State is losing all of their sport scholarships, and players can transfer schools and be eligible at that school right away (were in the past they had to sit out a year).

Penn State's trustees, football team, alumni and fans are not at all happy with the NCAA's tougher-than-tough sanctions against Penn State's football program. How could it have gotten much worse except that the NCAA would have banned football all together?
On Monday the University was slapped with a $60 million fine, a 4-year bowl ban, reduced football scholarships...
The challenges facing Penn State football are nothing compared to what the new coach and his wife have endured in real life. Included is a short video of O'Brien talking about his boys. One has a rare brain disease. The other is "healthy as a horse."
Penn State athletic director Dave Joyner does not believe the penalties against the school will be reduced. This is in contrast to a statement from Nittany Lion football coach Bill O'Brien.
Germantown Academy's Julian Moore loved everything about Penn State after prospect camp. The players, coaches, academics, and facilities all fell in line with what the 6-foot-9, 215 pound center was looking for.
