Basketball recruiting

Watching Wisconsin beat up on Minnesota, it occurred to me to take a peek at the quality of Wisconsin's recruits the last few years. It was a bit eye-opening. Year after year, Wisconsin is near the...

Pat Chambers...

should maybe talk to Coach Franklin about Mike Gesicki (TE football recruit for 2014). He was invited to play in the McDonald's all America game for basketball too. Obviously, he has a few skills...

The most telling recruiting coup

is flipping Farmer from Cal. This guy was recruited by Franklin for Vandy, but he decided to commit to Cal instead. While Vanderbilt is a great school in a great conference, it just wasn't enough...

This may sound a bit bizarre, but....

When thinking of Penn State rivalries in the BIG, they are slowly developing a few. Wisconsin losing the last two years when they were heavily favored in both. The fighting Boekman's of Illinois....

A couple of thoughts...

1. The Penn State vs. Ohio State matchup is slowly becoming a significant rivalry. I don't expect PSU to ever replace Michigan as the Buttholes main squeeze, but it is intensifying and all the...

Should college players be paid?

I personally am of the belief that they ARE being compensated, very well in fact, with free room and board and a great education. A value of anywhere between $30,000 to $60,000 or more a year. If...

I heard that Pat Haden of USC...

Is a recent graduate of the Penn State trustees seminar on tactful firing of football coaches. I find it amazing that Lane Kiffin got such high profile jobs with as little experience he had in the...

I don't think it's any big secret

that the BIG wanted a championship game to garner in all those extra bucks it would generate. The irony is that previous to this strategy for several years the BIG would seem to always get an at...

Speaking of awards...

I think that the BIG should create a new one called the Tim Beckman award celebrating the most embarrassing moment as a head football coach for a BIG team. The award is aptly named for Mr. Tim...

I am so disgusted ...

with ESPN and their holier than thou panel and announcers that I would rather watch infomercials instead of game day. I would rather watch keeping up with the Kardashians than ESPN. I would rather...

There are a couple of good articles about the success...

or lack of success that has been experienced by the players that have transferred. One interesting aspect of these I believe has been overlooked. Let's take Silas Redd for example. So far his...

Just what exactly are....

the rules regarding these unrestricted transfers by football players. I seem to recall that their eligibility to transfer is good until either a) the start of the 2013 season - or - b) they step on...

I'm sure this has been thought of before,

but it appears obvious to me that the Freeh investigation was a cover up in itself by the BOT led by our illustrious governor (who should be impeached). Let's see. the BOT collectively and badly...

The fallacy of recruiting star ratings

I just did a quick look through our recruits this year, and at first glance it would seem as though we have not had a very good recruiting season since Sanduskygate. After doing a bit of research...

The best part about the coaching search

is watching ESPN and the rest of the news media clowns falling over themselves trying to figure out who is on the list, or who is being considered. It must be KILLING them that this search...

Time to strike back at the media

I've just sent this to ESPN and the BIG Network. I think it is time for all who think that Joe Paterno has been wrongfully "convicted" to try to do something about it all. I'm appalled and ashamed...

ESPN - Breaking News

This just in from ESPN news. there has been a Joe Paterno sighting this morning. Paterno was seen taking a bag of trash out to the garbage can. Upon arrival at the receptacle, he paused and put his...

The news media needs to be controlled

To begin, my heartfelt prayers go out to all the victims and the families involved in this Sandusky thing. That said, this whole distasteful thing just demonstrates the ridiculous amount of power...

Kevin Newsome, come back

Wow, I wonder what our offense would be like if Penn State had even given Kevin Newsome a chance. How could he do any worse? The biggest concern I have over our QBs now is their attitude and body...

Doin' the right thing

I don't know how many of you remember this, but before last year's Bama game, Nick Saban told a story about Joe Paterno whereby when Mr. Saban was the head guy at Michigan State, he was trying to...

Annoying football cheers, chants & songs

If we are destined to struggle.....

with our offensive line for the remainder of the year, then I'm in favor of going the route of youth all the way. In other words, perhaps with the possible exception of Wiz, sit the juniors and...

Just some thoughts

Our coaching staff should be looking at what it will take to fire up the team to start the game. It seems to me that except for the Kent State game where we went to sleep after the first quarter,...

Why does the OL always seem to struggle?

I'm just disappointed.

Ok, I've heard all the justifications for our weak recruiting class. Weak in numbers, I might add, not in quality. The recruits we did get are superb. How does a top tier program like Penn State go...

What makes a great rivalry?
