It may feel a bit like "Penn State Day" here at The B1G Time, but that's what happens when major news breaks and in University Park, PA news is breaking fast and furious today. At least this bit of news is good news though as the NCAA announced that now redshirt senior Tim Frazier was granted his sixth year of eligibility and will be able to play this upcoming season. 

"Tim has shown tremendous will, perseverance and leadership as he continues his rehabilitation from a very tough injury," Penn State coach Patrick Chambers said in a release from the university. "He is doing very well. We are thrilled for him that he will have the opportunity to finish his career strong and again place himself among the top players in the nation."

This isn't a move that should shock any of us at all, after all he did tear his Achilles tendon just four games into this past season and all. What it does mean is that Penn State is likely to be a scoring machine this upcoming season thanks to returning the top three scorers in the Big Ten. 

Yes, you read that right - PENN STATE - is returning the top three scorers in the conference. It's doubtful those words would've ever been uttered before in the history of PSU in the B1G. In fact I'd stake my house on it. 

Anytime you get a 1st team All-Big Ten honoree back, even off of an unknown injury history like a torn Achilles can be, it's a good thing, it's especially so for a team that went 2-16 in conference play last season. With Frazier back this team now has a backcourt to be reckon with, featuring D.J. Newbill, Jermaine Marshall and of course Frazier. 

Could the Nittany Lions be poised for a major breakthrough in year three under Patrick Chambers? Only time will tell, but this could well be the best roster Penn State has had in my lifetime - on paper of course.
