PSU Players Akeel Lynch, Adam Breneman Have A Message For The Naysayers

Saturday night, Penn State played in its first postseason game in three years, defeating Boston College in a wild Pinstripe Bowl that went into overtime. It was an emotional victory for the Nittany Lions’ players, who, through no fault of their own, were forced to deal with a multi-year bowl ban and reduced scholarships as a result of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.  After the game...

Maine again? and other links

BCI picked up on a tweet out of Maine reporting that BC will face the Black Bears again in 2015. My preference is to rotate the FCS patsies, but it really doesn't matter. Next year's non-conference schedule is very soft, but that will help our young team.Sad and strange news as former BC Basketball reserve Nate Fox was killed two days before Christmas. Police are investigating. After...

Team concept helping Penn State late-season surge

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Coach James Franklin is quick to point out that any individual success his Penn State players may have happens only because of the overall team. Running back Akeel Lynch rushed for 130 yards on 18 carries against Temple; Bill Belton trailed with 92 more. Franklin would not single out either player on Tuesday. ''Akeel has done some nice things and I'm pleased...

Penn State's Lynch patiently waits his turn

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Physically, Penn State tailback Akeel Lynch isn't on the field frequently. Mentally, he doesn't miss a snap. The redshirt sophomore is third in line in a three-back Nittany Lion rotation and, even though he stays active on special teams, his focus is on every offensive play. ''I think my mindset is just to conduct myself like a starter, no matter the situation...

Penn State 48, UMass 7: Finally, a breather

Penn State proved capable of handling moments of adversity in week one in Ireland. In week two the Nittany Lions shrugged aside a rough first half against Akron. They answered the late call again last week on the road at Rutgers. In week four, back in Beaver Stadium, there was never a doubt as Penn State flirted with a shutout against a struggling Massachusetts program. The running...

After giving it some thought, these are the four names I would have carved in to the side of Mount Nittany if it were up to me. Joe Paterno This is the most obvious name, of course. Paterno is Penn State football, and...
