Found July 26, 2012 on Nittany Lions Den:
Much is being made about the potential changes to the Penn State football uniform. Bill O'Brien has mentioned he is discussing the possibility with Nike, who supplies football uniforms and more to Penn State. Of course, the sanctity of the football uniform has been held in high regard for some time, but at some point O'Brien needs to do some things to get recruits excited about Penn State in a new way. So, with no real details to share on what could change, other than the names, we ask if you want Penn State to add names to the jerseys. Leave your thoughts below.   Do you want Penn State to add names to the football uniforms?

It’s all about perspective: Penn State alum compares NCAA sanctions against school to 9/11 tragedy

When the NCAA doled out their punishment to Penn State for it’s role in the Jerry Sandusky case, which effectively crippled the school’s football program for the next decade or so, PSU fans and alumni were understandably upset, even if the NCAA’s decision, and subsequent sanctions, were just and fair. But there’s always got to be that one person whose perspective is so out...

Franco Harris Argues Against Penn State Sanctions, Still Hoping to Clear Joe Paterno's Name

Franco Harris, if nothing else, is persistently loyal. The Hall of Fame running back continues to defend his alma mater, Penn State, even in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky case.

Former head coach Joe Paterno had his legacy smashed to pieces upon the release of The...

Those sanctions...

Penn State players Vanderbilt should target

Among the list of sanctions handed down by both the NCAA and the Big Ten there is one item that should perk the interest of James Franklin and his staff. Due in part to the four year bowl ban placed on the school the NCAA has waived the transfer requirement that say any player moving between schools at the same level (FBS in this case) has to sit out a year.

The Twitter recruitment of Silas Redd

College recruitment can be a frightening kind of animal.  There's always been a certain aspect of recruiting that always takes place in the shadows.  When some of the darker elements of recruiting are brought to light, scandal often erupts.  While it's one thing for schools and coaches and representatives and even agents to be involved, it's quite another for...

Joe Paterno is the Luckiest Dead Guy in the History of Dead Guys

I don’t think I’ve written anything formal on the whole Penn State saga since it unfolded late last year outside of Twitter, so here it goes. In undoubtedly the creepiest story to ever coincide with sports throughout history, we have seen a school’s entire image completely tarnished. We have seen former players and colleagues make asinine comments only to come back and bite...

Report: Trustees to dicuss sanctions

A person with knowledge of the situation says the Penn State board of trustees will meet Wednesday afternoon to discuss whether President Rodney Erickson had the authority to agree to unprecedented NCAA sanctions against the football program without first getting the board's approval.

“Authority to Act”

Can we please put to rest the asinine argument that the NCAA somehow over stepped its authority to levy sanctions against Penn State for PSU’s actions during Sandusky’s period of committing child abuse and for their role in covering that up? We have read time and again in the past five days from people who don’t agree with what happened that Mark Emmert and the NCAA boards...
