Penn State’s ex-president and two former top school administrators were ordered Tuesday to stand trial...

Lowered expectations for Penn State in 2013? Only in win total

Penn State won eight games last year to the surprise of almost everybody. Not me. I had them pegged as an eight win team despite the players lost to NCAA transfers following the sanctions falling on the program. This year marks year two under Bill O’Brien and I am interested to see if the Nittany Lions can find a way to match last year’s win total. There are some things to like...

Penn State football has correct message for Paterno conspiracy nuts

I went through all 198 pages of the 2013 Penn State football media guide and I saw just two pictures, 8 mentions of Joe Paterno. And the PSU SID referenced Paterno only when they absolutely had to. I’m guessing you already know how many mentions of Jerry Sandusky and The Second Mile are in the Penn State football history book. This shows you that the Penn State football program...

Previewing Penn State with The B1G Time

The month of August means kickoff is just around the corner. As the calendars turned the page I had a chance to share some thoughts and opinions on Penn State's 2013 fortunes.

Penn State Offensive Preview 2013

  Penn State’s 2013 offense is loaded with top tier talent at every position except one, quarterback. The most important position on the field is a glaring question mark for Bill O’Brien going into training camp. Two untested and inexperienced players will have thirty days to compete for the the starting job. The season opens on August 31st against Syracuse in the...

Holgerson Willing to Do A One-Off

As we all know, one of the way Penn State did their best not to play Pitt was to claim they simply could not “afford” to lock into a home-and-home series. They needed at least a 3-for-2 deal or some other arrangement to make it clear that they were the alpha dog get enough home games. Pitt never flinched in holding firm against that. Not Pederson. Not Long. Wasn’t going to...
