Nittany Lions Den:
The changing of the Penn State jerseys has generated a tremendous amount of interest and discussion – especially in the social media world.
For those who have been under a rock for the last month, Penn State announced that it is adding a blue ribbon to its jersey to support the end of child abuse. In addition, the Nittany Lions will also have their names on the back of their jerseys.
Given everything that has happened, I doubt there will be a large outcry about the ribbon. It’s a small gesture – but one that Penn State needs to make.
The name on the back of the jersey, however, is another matter.
There has been a ton of reaction – much of it negative.
Michael Zordich, though, made a passionate plea that it really shouldn’t be something to argue against.
Zordich talked about the reasons that coach Bill O’Brien made the decision.
He said O’Brien wanted to recognize the players that are sticking it out, recognize the players that are honoring Penn State – both the football te...

Penn State is the latest school to add a twitter hashtag to their sideline. However, the tag is not on the field, but on one of the field tarp boxes on the Penn State sideline.
The tag says #OneTeam.
Here is a photo:

Former Penn State football players and coaches have sent a letter of intent to appeal the penalties levied against Penn State’s football program in the wake of the Sandusky scandal and the Freeh Report. The letter alleges that the penalties have caused specific damages to the former players and coaches, that the university agreed to the NCAA penalties without consulting them,...
Former Penn State quarterback Rob Bolden recently transferred to LSU and although he now sits at least third on a depth chart that includes junior Zach Mettenberger and redshirt freshman Stephen Rivers, he’s happy to finally be away from the madness in Happy Valley. He even goes so far as to say he was hoping to find a way out long before the scandal ever took place: …Bolden...
No matter who was talking, the themes were the same.
Before an overflow crowd of media members, the Penn State football team held its annual Media Day Thursday morning at Beaver Stadium and it was clear that everybody wanted to move forward and move forward together. It was also unanimous among players that coach Bill O’Brien was the man to lead that move.
“This is a special...
Texas kicker and punter Anthony Fera, who transferred from Penn State, has a groin injury and is not practicing.
Texas athletic trainer Kenny Boyd said Friday that Fera reported to training camp with a groin strain that he recently aggravated. Boyd says there is no timetable set for Fera to return to practice.
Texas must find a starting kicker and punter this season.
Yesterday the Associated Press released a story that has nothing to do with the crimes or the criminals thereof—only about the school’s continuous effort to supply manure of which they have a superabundance stored in numerous places throughout the state. The Governor’s Office, the Board of Trustees, Penn State’s administration, etc. foolishly think that the olfactory sense...

Add yet another sickening turn to the Jerry Sandusky saga. This time, it involves the former Penn State coach sharing young boys in what RadarOnline.com source is calling a "pedophile ring." David Perel, the executive vice president/managing editor of RadarOnline.com reported on Friday that "Both the FBI and a criminal investigative division of the United States Postal...

Thursday marked Penn State's Football Media Day, the first under Bill O'Brien. And the new head coach talked about a variety of units, keys to success and even freshmen.
The NCAA has an obligation to look into and punish North Carolina amid their academic scandal. I know that his will be most likely construed as another Duke guy taking a shot at North Carolina, but it really isn't. I'd feel the same way if it were any other school, Duke included.
The fact is that by the NCAA shying away from a ruling of any kind and outright refusing to...
The move from Philadelphia to Penn State was difficult at first. But the redshirt freshman is now so comfortable at the school that he passed when given a chance to transfer without penalty.
