Troubling news for Women's Basketball


Coach Washington surprisingly interviewed for the Michigan job. Would be a huge blow to Penn State to lose her. Also really surprising since next year's team is poised to make a big run, loaded with senior talent.

2nd Penn State Wrestler Arrested


It has been an absolutely horrible couple of weeks for the wrestling team. Again since he hasn't had his day in court yet, I won't speculate on Ruth's future. But this is as shocking as it is disappointing. Ruth is known as an extremely quiet and mild mannered young man, so I find the story extremely stunning. I also find it odd Ruth who is 20 wasn't charged with underage drinking. Needless to say if Ruth is unavailable it will be a huge loss for the team. Ruth was expected to contend for the national title at 184 this year.

The Flying Squirrel


This isn't Penn State related but it's too awesome not to share. One of the strangest and most awesome wrestling moves I've ever seen.

Penn State Loses Dernlan To Clarion


Penn State Director of Wrestling Operations Matt Dernlan has accepted the head coaching job at Clarion. It's an awesome opportunity for Matt and should be a great hire for Clarion. This is also a big loss for Penn State. Dernlan was a great and tireless recruiter and has also done a great job with the lightweights dating back to the Sunderland years. His recent role of head coach of the NLWC has seen the freestyle program really explode. Penn State certainly will have big shoes to fill.

He's Back!!!


Cael Sanderson's return to the mat got off to a successful start this weekend. Cael won the trials with relative ease, and has qualified for the 2011 World Championships. He went to three periods...


Cael Sanderson Eyes Olympic Return

Coach Cael Sanderson might be making a comeback on the mat.

Gregg Doyel is a scary man.


So this isn't Penn State related, but still an interesting sports read none the less. A little back story succubus and NC State AD Debbie Yow named her new basketball coach yesterday. And during the press conference basically told the world her new coach was a last resort because Gary Williams sabotaged her coaching search. Welcome to NC State Mark Gottfried!! Williams and Yow had a terrible relationship at Maryland, as did Ralph Friedgen, and from what I understand the wrestling staff. You may be noticing a trend here. Williams had nothing to say about the situation. And that brings us to internet tough guy Gregg Doyel who unleased quite the rant from the comfort of a radio studio. You can read the story but essentially Doyel seems to think Williams is afraid of him because "he’s a little bitty tiny coward runt of a man", all because Willams won't return his call about a non story. So much for remaining objective and journalistic integrity.


Sanderson back on the mat!!

A bit of a surprise but Cael Sanderson will be back on the mat this weekend. You can read about it here. Nothing to get to worked up about. Doesn't sound like he's making a full comeback just gonna...
