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 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...
