Blue White Roundtable is freshly squeezed

It must be football season because the other day I received an email form Adam over at Black Shoe Diaries. It's Blue White Roundtable time, you guys. As a refresher, the Blue White Roundtable is a weekly feature on Nittany Lions Den, Black Shoe Diaries and any other Penn State themed website willing to take some time to respond to a handful of questions served up by our friends...

Lowered expectations for Penn State in 2013? Only in win total

Penn State won eight games last year to the surprise of almost everybody. Not me. I had them pegged as an eight win team despite the players lost to NCAA transfers following the sanctions falling on the program. This year marks year two under Bill O’Brien and I am interested to see if the Nittany Lions can find a way to match last year’s win total. There are some things to like...

Penn State transfer rule to expire

The NCAA rule connected to Penn State's sanctions that had the earliest impact on the football program is set to expire Thursday. The rule allowing Nittany Lions to transfer without having to sit out a year at a new school elapses Aug. 1, according to school officials. On that front at least, Penn State returns to a level playing field with other FBS schools a year after the...

Penn State Defensive Preview 2013

  Penn State's defense enters the season with a lot of front line talent but also with serious depth concerns. John Butler's first season as defensive coordinator could prove to be difficult if injuries begin to mount. But as any coach would tell you, you can't plan for injuries. So along those lines I will give you a group by group break down of the 2013...

Pay players for likeness? Big Ten stars give adamant 'yes'

CHICAGO -- In one corner, a multi-billion dollar industry has continued churning a profit by capitalizing on an ability to market its talent for the masses. In the other corner, the talent that helps generate such a large profit for said industry earns nothing in return. Seem like a fair juxtaposition? Not to a group of six current college football players, who last Thursday decided...

It was a post-season day as good a bowl game win

  Maybe it wasn’t the same as going to a bowl game, but for Penn State fans Tuesday was as big as any bowl game this year could’ve been. It was the day the Big 10 announced that Bill O’Brien won Coach of the Year over Ohio State’s Urban Meyer – and it was the day that O’Brien indicated that he would be staying at Penn State. The Big Ten Network did a great...

Midweek Serenity: Hope Surfaces after Navy

Over the past few years, I’d been penning a book on the greatest Penn State football victories of the past four decades. While the closing chapter of that book certainly was less than exuberant (which was published in May with some post-scandal, post-O’Brien-hire information), this past Saturday was a fitting start to the next book on Penn State’s proud traditions. And you...

Hageman becoming force for Gophers defense

MINNEAPOLIS University of Minnesota defensive tackle Ra'Shede Hageman is an intimidating figure. The Minneapolis native and redshirt junior stands at 6-foot-6 and weighs just a hair over 300 pounds. Through two games in the Gophers' 2012 season, Hageman has been a force to be reckoned with on Minnesota's defensive line. He has three sacks, including two this past Saturday...
