Bill O’Brien Won’t Confirm He’s Coaching at Penn State in 2013

The start of the 2012 season for the Penn State Nittany Lions looked like it was going to continue the nightmare that the 2011 season turned into.

Stephanie McCaffrey brouhaha and other links

BC suspended women's soccer star Stephanie McCaffrey for he twitter jokes regarding Jerry Sandusky and Penn State. She will miss BC's NCAA tournament game against the Nittany Lions.

The Penn State Sandusky Jokes Continue

The Boston College women’s soccer team will take on Penn State on Friday in a second-round NCAA tournament game, and they’ll have to do so without their second-leading scorer.
