Penn State Got Royally Screwed with Worst Foul Call in the History of Basketball

Sports officials have an extremely difficult job and while we can semi-sympathize with the difficulty and pressures of the profession, that smidgen of sympathy is eliminated when they pull crap like this. The average reasonable fan can look past a few missed calls here and there, including subjective block-charge calls or lightning quick out-of-bounds rulings. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Penn State Fans Chanted “Overrated!” At Ohio St G D’Angelo Russell, Who Proceeded To Go Off On The Nittany Lions

The “overrated!” chant is a popular-but-typically-poorly-used chant in the college basketball world. It was used in poor form by Penn State’s student section Wednesday night.  In the first half of the Nittany Lions’ game against Ohio State, fans chanted “overrated!” at Buckeye guard D’Angelo Russell – perhaps the best player in the sport – while he was at the free...

With great stipends comes great responsibility

By all accounts it appears as though Penn State is currently in position to be able to offer the largest player stipends once Big Ten programs begin handing out stipends to scholarship athletes this year. If the numbers hold firm, then Penn State’s coaching staff will figure to have a legitimate recruiting advantage in one particular area, but that could be a minor concern that...

Hackenberg is Penn State’s Whopper

Over on The Student Section today the focus is on Big Ten quarterbacks. Here is what was said about Penn State and Christian Hackenberg; Let’s put it this way … if Burger King dropped the Whopper, it would be the equal of Penn State losing Christian Hackenberg. He’s a top-shelf NFL prospect who is backed up by a host of freshmen. PSU would be well advised to do everything...

Last week ESPN suspended Keith Olberman for the stupid and incredibly insensitive tweet he made in reference to Penn State students raising over $13 million to benefit pediatric cancer research.

Morning Cup of Joe – Penn State junior day updates and defending 2015 schedule

One criticism Penn State fans seem to have on a somewhat regular basis is the non-conference schedule’s lack of strength. In this new era of college football, with the College Football Playoff and the emphasis the selection committee is supposed to place on overall body of work, the strength of Penn State’s schedule is worth discussing. However, sometimes the logic and work put...

Why you should stop being outraged about Penn State’s 2015 schedule

I generally try to avoid reading the PennLive Fan Line, but sometimes I either cannot help myself or I open the link by accident.

I hope the...

Penn State hockey kisses NCAA at-large hopes goodbye in loss to OSU

There wasn’t a better story in Big Ten hockey than the sudden and surprising rise of Penn State. For most of the league season the Nittany Lions were either leading, sharing the lead or well within striking distance of whomever was leading. It’s just too bad the feel-good story of the Big Ten has turned in to a personal nightmare for the Penn State team. A once promising resume...
