Quick Preview: Gophers vs. Penn State

I admit I thought Penn State had a chance to be a sleeper in the Big Ten this season.  I said they had a chance to finish as high as 5th in the league this year (though I also said they could finish 14th and it wouldn't surprise me).  As usual, I'm an idiot and they are terrible.  They're 1-6 in conference play, which is actually worse than the Gophers if you can believe that...

Last week at this time I took a look at the scholarship situation on the offensive side of the football. Since then, Penn State added a tight end (Nick Bowers) to the recruiting class. Penn State also added a pair of defensive linemen to the Class of 2015, which was part of the reason I originally held of on diving into the scholarship breakdown on defense. As of now, I believe this...

Penn State and Pittsburgh will finally resume their series on the football field in 2016 with the start of a four-game series between the instate rivals.

Mostly Recruiting Wins, A Loss and Waiting

Sorry about the paucity of posts. Been a bit under the weather for the last week. Not enough to call off sick, but enough to be low on energy and not nearly enough of a clear head for coherent thoughts to make it to a post. In the meantime, there have been several more verbals, one that will wait until signing day. And a flip away from Pitt. Guess I’ll get the flip of TE Nick Bowers...

When Joe Paterno’s 111 wins were restored by the NCAA earlier this month, it bumped the former Penn State coach back up to 409 total wins, the most by any Division I head coach.

College football players, beware. Most of your head coaches are on Twitter – mainly to track what you’re tweeting out to your followers.

Franklin responded, telling him that if he didn’t study,...

What Big Ten West team would you want Penn State to schedule?

Earlier today North Carolina and Wake Forest announced an upcoming home-and-home deal to be played in 2019 and 2021.
