Feel Good About Franklin, But Feel Betrayed By O’Brien

Penn State Hires Vanderbilt’s James Franklin As New Head Coach

The Penn State Nittany Lions have signed former Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin as their new head coach.   He will be taking over for Bill O’brien, who coached the team for two years and guided the Nittany Lions through a very tough time for the university.  O’brien left the Pennsylvania school for the head […]

The Penn State Nittany Lions finished their season with a 24-21 win against the Wisconsin Badgers. The Lions were without senior linebacker Michael Mauti who injured his left knee in last week’s game. As tribute to Mauti, the team wore the number 42 on their helmets.

Penn State Dominates Indiana 45-22, But Lose Mauti To Injury

In what has been a strange and challenging season for a courageous young Penn State squad, the Nittany Lions secured their seventh win, which has been quite accomplishment considering the circumstances.   They dominated the Indiana Hoosiers at home by putting up 45 points and allowing Indiana only 22.

Penn State Football Hit Hard By NCAA, But…..

Yesterday the Joe Paterno statue was taken down, today the NCAA has all but taken down the Penn State football program, which he built.
“In the Penn State case, the results were perverse and unconscionable,” NCAA President Mark Emmert said.
“No price the NCAA can levy will repair the damage inflicted by Jerry Sandusky on his victims,” […]

The Passing Of Joe Paterno Through The Eyes Of A Penn State Student

I believe it was Football Eve 2009 (the pep rally we had the night before our first home game) in which Joe Paterno said he would still be coaching 40 years from now. Knowing that would put him over 120 years of age, I knew that probably would not happen. The Penn Stater in me, […]

Are Outsiders Really Jealous Of Penn State?

The most common response from Penn Staters to any criticism or indifference towards Joe Paterno this past week is: YOU’RE JUST JEALOUS OF US. Yes, Penn State is known for being a top party school, and yes Penn State has a good football program, but one could use the same […]

Joe Paterno, Not Perfect But Still Quite A Guy

We grew up watching someone from our childhood to our adult life and we just picture that the person is going to live forever.  We all know that is not true and that eventually everyone must pass.  On Sunday morning former Penn State Head Football Coach Joe Paterno passed away from complications from lung cancer.
