"He's got NFL head-coaching experience, knows how to recruit the area, and almost won the Big East that one time. That running back he trained is doing great in the NFL." -Anonymous insider

I think this article is a step in the right direction on public comprehension and awareness.

Should Penn State Change Its Uniforms?

It's not my intention to discuss IT or Lukas' interpretation of events, but I'm curious what this community thinks of the prospect. I'm just sad "permanent pink-and-black throwbacks" was not an option on the poll.

The media repeated the lie over and over again and still are either knowing full well they didn't have any evidence to back it up but did it for their own self-serving reasons or are simply too stupid to know there is no evidence to back it up.

Neither Joe Paterno nor Dave Wannstedt wanted anything to do with answering questions Wednesday that didn't pertain to high school football. The possibility of resuming the Penn State versus Pitt football series? JoePa remained quiet when asked, while Wannstedt replied, "We're here just to talk about the high school association." Wannstedt offered a brief answer when cornered after the press conference about Big Ten expansion. "A lot of rumors as far as I'm concerned," he said. "I really don't have any comment on that. That's for the chancellor and the higher-ups to discuss if there's ever a discussion, I guess. Right now there has been none." http://www.altoonamirror.com/page/content.detail/id/529593.html?nav=751

Big Ten Expansion -- Is Hockey a consideration?

via himg.uscho.com "Justin" posted some alleged insider info on Big Ten Expansion over on Frank the Tank's blog.  In summary, he claims the Big ten will be expanding to 14 and the three...

Just say yes to expansion

The Chicago Tribune has some anonymous sources from inside the Big Ten saying that there are at least "five different schools would add enough revenue to justify expanding the league beyond 11 teams." The Chicago-based investment firm William Blair & Company apparently gives the thumbs up for each of "the obvious suspects" (Missouri, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, and Rutgers), but cautioned that other universities could earn consideration. It doesn't say if this is for a 12 or 14-member expansion or if they are considering institutions' academics/research grants.

"I've gotten bigger, faster, stronger, I'm jumping better," said the former Penn Hills standout. "I think the chances are pretty good, I just need to get in front of some people." "I'm only 24 years old, and I've played against a lot of these guys in college. So when it comes to age, I feel like I haven't hit my peak yet," Morelli said.

"They talked about academics. They talked about size. They talked about size of their arenas. They talked about attendance. They talked about the populace in that specific area." "I think it could be one (school), or I think it could be multiple," "In our initial study, there wasn't anything on Texas," And our old buddy Frank The Tank provides his own list/analysis. Take your best guesses at who's on the list.

A well written realist look at Big Ten and Pac-10 Expansion, from the (hypothetical) desk of Bill Powers.

Pac-10 to take 'serious' look at expansion

19

Pac-10 commissioner Larry Scott said Tuesday that within the next year, conference leadership will engage in "serious analysis" of expanding its membership. Scott said the timetable will allow for conference officials to know its membership as it negotiates new TV contracts, likely to occur in 2011. The move also answers the Big Ten's internal discussions of possibly growing to 12 teams, which has sparked discussion among administrators at Pac-10 schools. Scott said he will not establish a committee to explore expansion, leaving the chore to the league's presidents. "With an issue as important to the future of the conference as its makeup," he saidin a teleconference, "it's going to be dealt with directly by them."
