Nittany Lions Den:
Nittany Lions Den is back and better than ever!
While this site never truly went away, it had become very silent for some time for a variety of reasons. The good news is we have received an upgrade on the site, along with a number of our partner sites across the Bloguin network such as Awful Announcing, Crystal Ball Run, Madtown Badgers and Subway Domer. The face lift was painless and has rejuvenated the site’s infrastructure behind the scenes. That means Penn State commentary is coming back.
In brief, the site should be more stable, should load better across platforms, and should be cleaner and more in line with our partner sites. We’re going to have some fun, but there is still some work to be done behind the scenes here (such as a new banner). There will also be a few things still to come, so stay tuned.
There are bound to be some hiccups along the way, so please feel free to reach out with any hassles you come across as we try to make sure everything is running well.

It's that time of year again when complex, well-crafted and carefully orchestrated Christmas light shows are put on display that could legitimately cause seizures for some, yet we all seem to get a kick out of. Personally, I have grown tired of these annual videos because at this point I have not seen anything real new with these videos. But I have to give props to Bob Witt...
I know we have nine more months to do this. But I can’t help it.
My breakdown of positions where Penn State football will be better, worse, or the same in 2014.
Hackenberg next year will probably resemble McGloin’s grasp and control of O’Brien’s offense, with even better physical tools. Hopefully Ferguson sticks around, and blue-chip freshman O’Connor...
