Penn State Bank Robber, Kim DeJesus Update & Jamarcus Sighting

  Win or lose…something is going to burn Prayers to the city of Morgantown. There doesn’t seem to be an ending tonight that will stop the students from burning something. We’re talking about a listed 9:45 tip that’s going to be bumped to probably 10:17, which means you’re looking at a 12:39 ending and students who’ve been drinking since 4. I’ll be spending my free...

Penn State recruiting is building foundation at offensive line

Anyone who watched Penn State in 2014 knows what was the biggest weakness. The offensive line struggled to be a cohesive unit capable of protecting quarterback Christian Hackenberg and allowing the running game to get moving. For multiple reasons, the offensive line was the biggest hurdle Penn State rarely overcame last fall but the Nittany Lions are addressing that need in a big...

Penn State trustees to review proposal to make for happier beat reporters

When James Franklin and his staff came to Penn State, a plan to improve the football facilities to keep up to speed with programs in the SEC and Ohio State was made clear. Now it appears Penn State could be one step closer to undergoing some facility upgrades. Last week, Audrey Snyder of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette made note of some items on agenda for this week’s Penn State Board...

Penn State upsets Iowa, and that’s bad for Purdue and the Big Ten

CHICAGO — Ironically, Iowa is not the biggest loser in its loss Thursday to Penn State in the Big Ten Tournament second round. That honor goes to Purdue. Purdue entered the Big Ten Tournament on the bubble with its NCAA Tournament prospects in the air. The Catch and Shoot has the Boilermakers as a No. 11 seed in the First Four, and the Bracket Matrix agrees. Penn State’s surge...

Penn State Nittany Lions Spring Preview 2015: Can PSU’s bolstered roster make immediate impact?

Sometimes you have to learn to crawl before you can walk, and while the hype surrounding the James Franklin era was intriguing, the on the field results weren’t what everyone expected. That was especially true on the offensive side of things. With a new lease on life coming in to 2015 thanks to a full recruiting class for the first time in three years and the ability to put most...

Endgame Management: “One Stop, One Score” Sounds Logical, But It’s Not

You’re going to watch more college basketball on television than you can possibly stand over the next four days, and the cycle will be repeated the following Thursday through Sunday as well during the first (sprawling) weekend of the NCAA tournament. When you watch waves of games — one after the other — it will be easy to get caught up in the action. Game X at 12:15 Eastern...

Vine: Penn State’s D.J. Newbill Drills A Three At The Buzzer To Beat Minnesota

While Penn State basketball isn’t a huge draw, Nittany Lions’ guard D.J. Newbill is a legitimate star. No power conference play scores more than Newbill, who averages 20.3 points per game, and today he showed a real flare for the dramatic. With the game tied at 7.6, Newbill sank a contested three to lift Penn State past Minnesota in today’s regular season finale.  Newbill...

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

Morning Cup of Joe – Where Penn State recruiting ranks in 2016 right now

The snow threw a bit of a wrench in the plans so this morning’s rundown will be brief. On the site yesterday we wrapped up our expanded roundtable discussion on the Big Ten by making some bold predictions. Some of them were even focused on Penn State, which you may find interesting to read. You can go back and read any part of the Big Ten roundtable from this page. Penn State...

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...

Morning Cup of Joe – Penn State possibly gains financial recruiting edge on Big Ten

Penn State’s valuable stipends, most followed coaches on Twitter, more Big Ten roundtable and a whole lot more! Here is your morning roundup! I have been saying for a few years now I believe Penn State could very well be a sleeping giant in college football. I feel as though the revenue stream is in place and the resources are there and improving. With James Franklin and his staff...

Video: Keith Olbermann Apologizes For Penn State Tweets, But Nittany Lions Supporters Aren’t Impressed

Last Tuesday, ESPN personality Keith Olbermann was suspended for one week following comments he made on Twitter regarding Penn State and its THON fundraiser. Olbermann, who blasted Penn State back in January after the NCAA agreed to restore Joe Paterno’s 111 vacated victories, returned to the air Monday, and his first line of business was to address the situation.

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. In any event, I was not all that surprised to see the complaints in the most recent Fan Line post this weekend, with a couple complaints about Penn State’s 2015 schedule. “JUST READ the upcoming Penn State home football schedule for 2015.

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...

Former Penn State Linebacker Michael Mauti Is Going Off On Keith Olbermann

Last month, ESPN on-air personality Keith Olbermann lambasted Penn State and the NCAA in the wake of Joe Paterno’s vacated wins being restored. Early Monday morning, Olbermann was back at it, but this time he chose to rip the PSU student body after a current PSU student tweeted at him regarding THON, the university’s well-regarded fundraiser for pediatric cancer.  Kind of odd...

Penn State’s emergence has only helped Big Ten hockey’s credibility

When Penn State announced it was adding hockey and thusly the Big Ten could sponsor the sport for the first time, many were critical of the move for schools like Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. After all, they were leaving two of the best conferences in college hockey to join forces with three programs without the tradition and depth of the leagues they were leaving. The chief...

Wisconsin Swept by Penn State

The Badgers could not avoid the road series sweep falling to the Nittany Lions from Penn State 1-4. With the Badgers and Nittany Lions squaring off less than 24 hours since their last meeting, both teams looked a tad slow to start the game. The game was swaying back and forth with neither of the two teams grabbing the momentum. The Badgers were given the first opportunity of the...
