Buzz Bissinger on Lance Armstrong: "He is a hero."

(Personally, I believe Lance should be admired for winning seven Tours, for his "beating" cancer, and for all he did to raise funds to fight cancer. I have no idea if he doped or not. Apparently he...

Penn State Graduation Rates

Just to amplify Nick Blonde's (aka Sunshine Shane?) thread on the front page, look at Penn State's GSR and FGR numbers AND where we rank in all of D-1A. If we have a football culture, it sure...

Gaining on #1!!!

SSS811 did a great job of alerting us to this poll a few days ago, but his FanShot is aging out. Want to revive his post so we can win this poll, and poke a sharp stick in E$PN's eyes. Here is the recent tally: Texas A&M Aggies 21126 Penn State Nittany Lions 19714 Missouri Tigers 12490 West Virginia Mountaineers 9730 VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!!!

Sanction "negotiations"

Apologies if this has been linked already, and that it links to E$PN. Sounds like Penn State "negotiated" with a gun at its head, and only involved Peetz, Erickson, and a few lawyers. So much for transparency. Assuming this story is accurate, it is sickening how little the BoT reviewed and discussed the Freeh report.

Freeh financials

The price tag paid for the (flawed and slanted) Freeh report has bugged me ever since it came out, and I just have to get this off my chest. Feel free to challenge my assumptions, or provide your...

Different situation -- same judgment

The horrific shootings in Colorado have some eerie parallels with "IT", as here was another situation where a guy apparently exhibited warning sides of what he was capable of doing. He is reported...

Aurabass has been banned.

According to my sources, Aurabass has been banned because he linked to someone else's material. I cannot substantiate if that is the true reason or not, but I will say that, for myself (and...

McGloin on being named the starter

Folks, if this violates posting guidelines, I apologize and ask someone to post it correctly. That said, I think many of us will initially cringe when we read M2's comments, but try to look...
