Nittany Anthology Update: Team of the Decade


Don't worry, the site still looks like it's from 1996, but Mr. Anthology has put up his All-PSU Decade team for 2000-2009. A bit early, but it's definitely something to react to.

Weather for the PSU '09 season?

Ann Arbor forecasts overcast skies and a 60% chance of rain with 15 mph winds. I can't even recall the last time I saw sunlight at a PSU game...everything is a gray haze. Is this the worst season...

JoePa wants Eric Martin out


PSU fan here. JoePa heard that 109-year old freshman Eric Martin is playing for the Huskers. JoePa insists Martin played for him back in the early '20s and his eligibility has expired. Keep an eye out for this one.

Suddenly, PSU-Temple makes sense.


Only 18 more wins until we pass ND-Navy. Our series through 2012 would put us up to 30 consecutive wins. Curley is going for the record!

Bowden wants to count 22 wins from Juco


Meanwhile, Bobby is hatching one final trick play. This one involves digging up what he says are 22 victories earned while he was coach at South Georgia Junior College from 1956-58. Asterisk that, NCAA. "I've got to get put in the grave here one of these days ... " Bowden said. "It don't count to them. It does to me."

PSU became the first team ever to defeat Indiana three times in one season last year. We can't repeat that feat. Obvoisuly, the game at Iowa last year was important.
