Fifth-year senior tailback Derek Day could make his first career start when the Nittany Lions visit Virginia. Unlike a certain backfield mate, he doesn't mind being called a former walk-on (or run-on).
BEST OF MAXIM
I reached out to Mike Welsh a person that I had interview via email last September when his son Thomas committed to play hockey at Penn State. Thomas has since de-committed from PSU. I again had a conversation with Mike Via email.
It’s nice to talk to you again Mike. It’s been almost a year since we last chatted.
Q: Your son Thomas Welsh who is a highly sought after...
Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky regrets not taking the stand at his child sex abuse trial and likely will be sentenced next month, his defense lawyer said Wednesday.
Attorney Joe Amendola said he has not received a presentence report for Sandusky from the county court system and the defense has not decided whether to contest a recommendation that the 68...
Penn State’s 24-14 loss to Ohio Saturday has spawned lots of comments and opinions on how this team is “fragile” and that it “ran out of gas” in the fourth quarter.
I don’t buy it.
That may be the case later in the season, but I don’t believe that was the case against the Bobcats.
Look, all we heard about all spring and summer was how much better this new strength...
Penn State landed a commitment on Tuesday, going to California to pick up a pledge from 2013 forward Payton Banks.
This season–the 9-4 campaign of 2002–was an oasis in the sea of losing seasons known as “The Dark Years.” In particular, the Nittany Lions had this game circled on their calendars for more than a year.
The 2001 date in Charlottesville saw the Virginia Cavaliers come away with a 20-14 win, featuring at least one controversial fumble and a controversial offensive gameplan by...
Allen Robinson was an effective weapon in Penn State's passing attack to open the season. For his efforts Nittany Lion fans named him their Player of the Ohio Game.
Yesterday I wrote a post pleading with the world to ignore Penn State. Without rehashing the post, which you can read here, I wanted to address the very first comment I received on the post. I also wanted to take this opportunity to remind you that if you leave a comment on my site, I will try to engage it, either by clarifying what I had to say, or by eviscerating you for being...
Sprawled out in the Ohio end zone, grasping for something well beyond his reach, safety Jacob Fagnano’s posture as the game-clinching Ohio Bobcat TD was scored felt like a fitting end to the first game of the post-Paterno era at Penn State.
Fitting because Fagnano hailed from the defensive side of the ball. Everyone expected a steep learning curve on offense—especially due to...
Penn State's costs for legal fees, consultants and public
relations firms hired to help deal with the Jerry Sandusky child
sex abuse scandal have reached nearly $17 million.
By now the world knows that Penn State is a complete and utter disaster. Not only did they get raped and pillaged this off-season with legal troubles, the Joe Paterno Saga, etc.. (No pun intended) There was a substantial exodus of players before the start of the 2012 season. It hurts to be a Penn State fan right now, it hurts.
Saturday, State took the field with an opportunity...
Mark Harrington and Nirav Dalal tackle Penn State's 2012 road opener against the Cavaliers. Get the lowdown on what to watch for on the road as the Lions bounce back from a tough season opener.
Just like I do anytime I discuss something that has anything to do with football at Penn State University these days, I want to first and foremost say that there is nothing more important then the victims of the child abuse crimes committed by former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. With that said, the healing process began on Saturday with the first football game not to be...
Randolph (N.J.) High offensive tackle and Penn State commit Brendan Mahon returned to Happy Valley for the season opener against Ohio. And although the Nittany Lions lost, he was thrilled to be back to watch football.
