Penn State-UCF Game In Ireland Could Be Threatened By Volcano

The threat of a volcanic eruption could jeopardize the upcoming Penn State-UCF football game in Dublin, Ireland. Every part of that sentence sounds ridiculous, but, yes, the Nittany Lions and Knights are scheduled to play a random, non-conference game in Ireland next weekend, and, yes, the Icelandic volcano Bárðarbunga could put a damper on those plans. The volcano, which is located...

Penn State-UCF Game in Ireland Threatened By a Possible Volcanic Eruption

Penn State and Central Florida are playing in Ireland on August 30th to open their respective seasons.

RIP TailGreat: 3 ways Penn State can fix its latest self-inflicted PR blunder

My initial reaction to TailGreat’s cancellation can be found on my Twitter feed. Since then, I’ve mostly moved on from the shock with a hint of rage… mostly. There was so much wrong with how Penn State handled this situation, if it were any other athletic department, I’d say it was shocking. You simply don’t hand out 800ish free iPads to your athletes, then turn around...

Joe Paterno rescued a former player’s son from a grim fate

(Credit: Throughout his decades of coaching at Penn State before he sadly passed away in 2012, Joe Paterno saw thousands of players come and go. But that certainly doesn’t mean he forgot them. Pete Curkendall played for the NIttany Lions in the 1980′s, and probably would have been an elite NFL player if it wasn’t for his lack of work ethic. That is something...
