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

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

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.
