Why Conference Championships Will Drive the College Football Playoff

With the college football regular season wrapping up this week and conference championship games just around the corner, the BCS picture is getting clearer. Of course, this is the last year that just two teams will be selected to play for the championship. The College Football Playoff (or CFP) will be the new sheriff in town when 2014 rolls around. We might know who’s on the...

How to Heal Big Ten Football

  For the past five years, the debate about Big Ten football’s weaknesses has occurred on New Year’s Day. Bowl game loss after bowl game loss—mostly against SEC foes—caused a whole heap of abuse on the Midwestern conference as the season wrapped up.   But this year, it happened at an even more embarrassing time.

Victory We Predict For Thee: Staff predictions for Penn State vs. Indiana

The Nittany Lions have never lost a football game to the Hoosiers, and if Bill O'Brien has anything to say about it this will be the case once again this weekend. Penn State and Indiana are both coming off losses from last week in Big Ten play, but at least we can say Penn State had a...

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...

Follow Friday: Nittany Lions Den staff

Every Friday some Twitter tweeters make it a habit, a ritual if you will, of sharing some of their favorite recommendations of people to follow. The entire routine has been somewhat dated and in many cases has lost the impact it once had back in its heyday of 2008.
