My votes for NCAA College Football Coach of the Year this year will be-1-Bill O'Brien, 2-Brian Kelly, 3-Bill Snyder. Honorable Mention-Jim Mora. My Heisman Vote goes to Manti Te'o. People soon forgot about Johnny Football's struggles against Florida and LSU. How O'Brien got the Nittany Lions to 8-4 after starting 0-2 after the scandal and transfers ran for the hills is stuff of legend.
There was of course no Penn State football game this past weekend, but that did not stop the Nittany Lions from partaking in what has become something of a tradition this season, collecting some Monday hardware.

Penn State’s eight-win season, stout defense and productive offense resulted in six Nittany Lions becoming first-team All-Big Ten selections tonight.
Silas Redd, the junior tailback who transferred from Penn State to USC in August, finished the season with 817 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. That's 173 yards fewer than the Nittany Lions' leading rusher (converted fullback Zach Zwinak). Redd, having purchased Trojans coach Lane Kiffin's magic beans, played on a team that finished 7-5. The Penn State team that Redd left behind finished 8-4 and will be celebrated in Nittany Lions lore for its determination.
"Alabama absolutely hammered Auburn, 49-0, in the Iron Bowl. Georgia dumped Georgia Tech (quite literally if you saw Alec Ogletree body slam Tech running back Robert Godhigh) in a 42-10 blowout. Neither saw any resistance in their annual rivalry games, setting up an easy path to the SEC Championship bout in Atlanta next week. If Alabama wins, it can defend its national championship in Miami against Notre Dame. Georgia prevails and the Bulldogs will be set to play their biggest game since 1982. That was the year top-ranked Georgia, led by Herschel Walker, met No. 2 Penn State in the Sugar Bowl. Joe Paterno’s Nittany Lions handed Georgia a 27-23 loss. But, that is getting too far ahead. Alabama lost to Texas A&M. So what. The Tide have played better and more consistently than any other team in the country all season. If you think it’s not true, ask Gene Chizik. The Auburn coach’s job could well be over. If this is the end, he got a final, bitter taste of Alabama. It was 14-0 after the first quarter, 4 ...
great day of Big Ten football yesterday-- great Ohio State- Michigan game, and then an outstanding Penn State-Wisconisin game. Nittany Lions finish 8-4 on the season. Incredible. We are!
Congrats to the Nittany Lions on a great season. After the first 2 games, how many people thought that the season would end this way. Coach O'Brien is a keeper. He is a good example of a leader only being concerned with things that he had control over. And Matt McGloin, a walk-on, that bought into what Coach o'Brien was cookin.
How funny is it that Silas Redd ditched Penn State to go to USC and the Nittany Lions are going to finish with a better record than the Trojans this year.
At the Penn State game, Nittany Lions won in overtime against Monte Ball and the Wisconsin Badgers!!! My toes and face are numb because it's 20 degrees and snowing at the game. We are. Penn State!!!
What a job by Bill O'Brien and the Nittany Lions of Penn St. Overcoming the highest adversity to have an 8 win season. Just great to see.
Penn St overcame a lot of adversity this year. Way to go Nittany Lions!
The Tim Frazier-less Nittany Lions did something last night that Purdue couldn't...beat Bucknell.
Jay Paterno in the house at Jeffrey Field. Nice to see him out here. Nittany Lions still lead 1-0 with 26 minutes to go.

Way to go Matt and the Nittany Lions!! Another great season and proud to be a Penn State Fan!!
Great day at Penn State today but a bittersweet victory for the Lions. The victory over the Hoosiers guarantees a winning season but the loss of Michael Mauti was heartbreaking. What a shame that the senior player that has meant more to the Nittany Lions than any player ever had to be carted off the field in his next to last game . What a class player and a class person.
Penn State senior linebacker Michael Mauti will await a diagnosis on his injured left knee to see if his senior season is over at Penn State, but either way, the senior outside linebackers' injury touched numerous Nittany Lions.
He will be etched in Nittany Lions folklore as the senior leader who rallied a directionless team and disgruntled fan base.
Receiver Allen Robinson had three highlight-reel scoring catches and Matt McGloin threw for four touchdowns to lead Penn State in a 45-22 win Saturday over Indiana.

Guard John Urschel tries to pinpoint the Nittany Lions' third-quarter struggles
There is always a lot of bad and good news; however the Penn State Sandusky case upset me a lot. No need to say why, I'm sure. But yesterday I spent the day in State College with Michael and a young friend of his; as we strolled I saw notices in many store windows, proclaiming love and support of the University and their Nittany Lions as well. Heart-warming to see a community bounce back after a year of painful discoveries.

Since Penn State will not be playing in the postseason in the next four years thanks to NCAA sanctions, Nittany Lions coach Bill O’Brien has been trying to come up with creative ways to give his team something to look forward to during bowl season. In July, and shortly after NCAA president Mark Emme...

Goodnight, Nittany Lions. Try again in five years once you've gone from 85 scholarships to 65 and back to 85. Until then, have fun getting your *** whipped by THE Ohio State Buckeyes on an annual basis. Thanks for setting a Nittanyville record with 140 tents camped outside this week for the Bucks' visit. Hope it was worth it. ***
Led off the bus by head coach Bill O'Brien, the Nittany Lions received a loud ovation as they entered the stadium for Saturday night's game.

Sports Rant--I remember back in the olden days, say a week or two ago , when the Detroit Tigers could hit. Barry Zito shuts them down-- yes that Barry Zito, who's stuff reminds me of a young Jamie Moyer. Zito was once an elite pitcher, but after 5 years in which mediocrity would have been a blessing, he has discovered a way to win. He get's followed by Bumgarner, who completely controls the Tigers. Bumgarner is young and good, but lately has been erratic. Doug Fister took one in the head, but kept on pitching. When a ball hits a pitcher in the head, he needs to come out. The possibility of internal damage is there-- and no baseball game not involving a team I care about is worth a human life. Three big college games this weekend---or maybe 4. 1. Notre Dame at Oklahoma. Undefeated Irish head to Norman to play a one loss powerhouse. 2. Michigan-Nebraska. A game in the Big 10 with Rosé Bowl implications. 3. The ineligible bowl-- those resurgent Nittany Lions ( love my Lions) against nasty Ohio State. 4. ...
So the 5th and 6th grade basketball division this year has Big Ten team names. Buckeyes, Wolverines, Spartans, Gophers, Hoosiers, Nittany Lions, Illini, and Boilermakers. Kiryn is on the Gophers. A little bummed shes not a Spartan!
It is an award-filled Monday for the Nittany Lions. Congrats to Jordan Hill (Defensive Player of the Week) and Kyle Carter (Freshman of the Week) for earning Big Ten honors!
What does the Catholic Church, Boy Scouts of America, and Penn State's Nittany Lions have in common?
The Charles Gilmer Football Universe update (Hit "Like"!) Meadowbrook inches closer to their first playoff berth since 2008, routing Petersburg, Louisa upsets Powhatan, and John Battle suffers it's first defeat of the year, falling to Honaker, but is nevertheless in good playoff position. VMI loses to the Chanticleers of Coastal Carolina, making that elusive FCS playoff spot even more distant. The always proud Nittany Lions of Penn State roll over the Iowa Hawkeyes to go 3-0 in the Big Ten, setting up the Ineligble Bowl with Ohio State in Happy Valley next week. The Pittsburg State Gorillas get pounded by the Griffons of Nissouri Western. The Minnesota Vikings get a yeoman-like victory over the Arizona Cardinals.
The first row begins just 10 feet behind the Penn State sideline, and fans sitting there hovered overed the Nittany Lions and made their presence known.
Unfortunately, Cedar Cliff comes up short vs. Lower Dauphin 28-21, due in large part to several mistakes, but they will rebound. Everyone else on my list came up winners this weekend, though some were not so easy. Bishop McDevitt, Central Dauphin, and Notre Dame won their respective games, although Notre Dame had to scratch and claw to get the win. AND, HOW 'BOUT Penn State KICKIN' THE CRAP OUT OF IOWA 38-14, IN IOWA CITY NO LESS? YEAH BABY! WOO-HOO! I know there's a lot of football left, but, the Nittany Lions are looking good. I like where they are, and where they're going. 5-2, and 3-0 in the Big Ten, with Ohio State next on the schedule. LET'S GO NITTANY LIONS! WE ARE Penn State!!!
How bout them Nittany Lions? Let's tear up the Big Ten and have the best record..Yes,we can't officially have the title,but we can make a point...
What a win for the Nittany Lions. I love the Lions and Bill O'Brien! Way to be boys! Now let's welcome in the Buckeyes and send them home crying! Crowd is going to be insane! I cant wait to walk into Beaver Stadium (the greatest show in college football btw) at 5:00 and then at 6:00 I'm going to be screaming my lungs out with Manda Clark, Greg Clark, and Sandy Griggs Clark! WE ARE.Penn State!
Great win for my Nittany Lions. Finally we kicked Iowa's *** the team who has had our number for several years. Coach O'Brien is the best. Go State ! Next week Ohio State at home, and my daughter and I, both PSU Alums will be at the game.
James Vandenberg throws a pass right into the hands of Michael Mauti. The Nittany Lions take over on the Iowa 14 after the interception.

My brother Rodney has traveled up from Etters, PA to represent the Nittany Lions!! Rodney, get your cheer on, my boy is seasoned!! Boys night out... Enjoy the game!!
I said it before and I'll say it again. If Joe Paterno was told Sandusky was abusing one of JoePa's grandchildren, he would have done a tad more than sleep on it. PSU football should have never been punished by the NCAA, but to turn a blind eye to evil is to be an accomplice to it, and that is exactly what Paterno, Probst, KCSD, and the PSU administration did. I bleed blue and white. My heart goes with the Nittany Lions every time they take the field, and when others were saying Joe was too old to coach, I said he was still the greatest coach ever and won the right to step away whenever he chose to and did a lot of good for Penn St, the boys who became men under his tutelage, State College, and the whole region. Does his good outweigh the bad? Not in my eyes.
Let's see what my teams are up to this weekend: BSU v. UNLV We're matched up against a sometimes decent team that's having an abysmal year. This should be really one-sided. GA Tech v. Boston College It's Homecoming and BC is really bad this year, so this should be a thrashing. Penn St. v. Iowa After a rough start, the Nittany Lions are looking like a real football team again. However, Iowa is doing pretty well too, having beaten some good teams. This should be an exciting game that could go either way, though I worry that Iowa might have the edge even if it weren't a home game for them. If I watch one game, it'll be this one. Wyoming v. Fresno St. The Cowboys aren't looking very good this year except at quarterback, and Fresno is resurgent after several rough years. I fear this might be embarrassing, yet I still hope.
Bill O'Brien and his Nittany Lions are ready for an electric atmosphere in Kinnick Stadium.
Old guys tell stories .. often the same ones again and again! My Penn State Iowa story: 41 years ago, the Nittany Lions made the trip to Iowa City to play the Hawkeyes for the first time in many years. As the radio broadcaster, I was on the trip. After the team had checked in at the Holiday Inn, I was in the lobby and an elderly gentleman came up to me and asked "Has coach Paterno checked in yet?" When I told him he had the gentleman was really disappointed and said he would sure to meet him, I'm Nile Kinnick's father! Nile Kinnick, for whom the Iowa stadium is named; Heisman Trophy winner; first college athlete to be a casualty of WW2. I called Joe and he did come down to the lobby to meet and chat with Mr. Kinnick.
Pat Chambers picked up his fourth commitment of the 2013 class as MN PG Graham Woodward committed to the Nittany Lions.

What a great day Saturday was! My mon and I went down to PSU to watch the Nittany Lions come from behind to beat Northwestern, then we enjoyed a wonderful tailgate hosted by the DeLousias. It is always special to go back to Happy Valley, and it was made even more special going with my mom.
Its Penn State not the State Pen. dont get it twisted... Nittany Lions 4 life
It was refreshingly normal--not a word often applied to Penn State football in the last year--to watch the Nittany Lions mark Homecoming by beating a nationally ranked team. I wish I had been there in person.
I wasn't able to go to Penn State today for the game, but I had the best view ever sitting in the cheap seats with my Mom and Pops, drinking beer and watching my Mom cheer for the Nittany Lions! Life is good, every moment is priceless.
Another smokin' 4th quarter in Happy Valley. Nittany Lions are taking no prisoners in Conference play.

Mississippi State, Rutgers.College Football Early Surprises. My UCLA Bruins are looking good and should move up in the standings today(After we beat Cal) I think I seen Penn St beat a Ranked team and move to 2-0 in the Big Ten.Penn State has been through a lot, I commend the Kids who elected to stay knowing it was gonna be a huge uphill climb. If they can stay relevant in the Big Ten, they might have a shot at a Bowl. It will be there first Bowl since before 1998 with all their sanctions. Re-write history Nittany Lions.
Penn State,led by Matt McGloin and Michael Zordich,are going to upset Northwestern in Happy Valley,38-28.Four in a row for the Nittany Lions,under the worst of circumstances.Northwestern was shooting for its first 6-0 start in fifty years.
What is this product they are putting on the field at Beaver Stadium and what happened to the downtrodden, sanctioned Nittany Lions? ;-)
Matt McGloin is not a prime time quarterback. In fact, that's what has held the Nittany Lions back for the last several years... a great, game-changing QB
Why are the Nittany Lions again on my TV? Penn State could play a pickup football squad from.Johns Hopkins and ESPN would still air it.

At halftime of Penn State's win Saturday over Temple, members of the Nittany Lions' 1982 national championship team were honored. Name by name was read off the public address system as the players from the championship team stepped forward to be recognized. One name that was never mentioned over the PA system was the coach of the team, Joe Paterno. Despite the lack of recognition during the reunion, several Penn State fans in Beaver Stadium could be heard chanting the late coach's name throughout the ceremony. The chant appeared to start in the student section and then spread throughout the stadium before it reached its peak at the end of the reunion. Before the chant really gained momentum after the ceremony, a combination of loud music and audio of Penn State coach Bill O'Brien speaking for an advertisement was blasted over the Beaver Stadium speakers. Paterno's image was shown twice for a few seconds on the scoreboard video screen as highlights of the 1983 Sugar Bowl were played before the ceremony got ...

This week's college picks are in, here we go: 1. the Utes over the Sun Devils 2. the Domers cover against the Blue 3. the Golden Gophers cover against the Orangemen 4. with your upset of the week, the Owls over the Nittany Lions 5. the Scarlet Knights over the Hogs 6. the Bruins cover against the surprising Beavers. And the Towson Tigers over the Red Flash from Saint Francis University. Go Green, Go White, Go State, but I'm not touching that 30+point spread over the Hurons. Hope all y'alls alma maters do well tomorrow.
I forgot about these... Paterno seldom recognized: the capitalist. In 1995, Burger King invited the head coach of the Nittany Lions to appear in a pair of commercials for the fast food chain.
A 48-year-old Pennsylvania man has sent an email claiming that disgraced former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky was part of a child sex ring that spanned three states. Self-described former “child prostitute” GREG BUCCERONI sent the email to officials at Brooklyn’s Poly Prep Country Day School on Monday, where former students say they were abused by coach PHIL FOGLIETTA. In the email, Bucceroni claims that in 1979 he was brought to State College, Pennsylvania “for the purpose of child prostitution with Jerry Sandusky at a Second Mile fundraiser,” but that that Nittany Lions coach “became unavailable.”
I am looking forward to this weekend. Heading to the Happy Valley to visit Chris, to tailgate with old and new friends and to cheer on the PSU Nittany Lions as they play Temple. WE ARE . GO P-S-U.beat Temple!
Yesterday was Sept. 17th. Where were you on September 17th, 1966? I was just starting my freshman year at Penn State in the Antenna/Microwave curriculum. There were about 12 of us. Fall is always beautiful in State College. But September 17th is a special day in Penn State history. It was Joe Paterno's first game as Head Couch of the Nittany Lions. The game was with Maryland and Penn State won 15-7. That year Penn State played Michigan State, UCLA, California, Georgia Tech and all the usual teams like Pitt, Syracuse, West Virginia. The Press always said Joe won so many because he played weak teams? Joe won 5 and lost 5 his first year. Next year, Joe was 8-2 and played Florida State to a 17-17 tie after trailing 17 nothing at half time. Joe always scared you early but figured it all out by the forth quarter. Joe wasn't given a forth quarter when he was fired. We know he would have won this last one if he had a full game to do his magic.
Kirk Herbstreit praises Bill O'Brien; ESPN postgame show gives Penn State scant attention... Perhaps it is a sign of the actual power of Penn State. The Nittany Lions still get big time attention on the four-letter network. Herbstreit states how impressed he has been with O'Brien from Day 1 with the approach to his players. Desmond Howard does what Desmond Howard does best, provide little of value to the conversation. Corso and Herbstreit both pick Penn State to win. Corso goes further saying they will win big. Not bad guys, not bad at all.

Al Pacino is going to play Joe Paterno in a movie. I can't wait..I hope he totally hams it up and gives a regular "Pacino" performance. Because is there anything funnier than a guy in Coke bottle glasses and a Nittany Lions shirt yelling "HOOAH" randomly in sentences for no reason? Of course not.

It's a rough week for Bills and Nittany Lions alike... Looks like it's beer-thirty.
In todays paper, "If not for the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal that led the NCAA to hit Penn State hard with sanctions, the Nittany Lions might have won easily". I'd like to see that printed after each PS loss. A reminder that these players (and fans) are being punished for something they had absolutely nothing to do with!
So Sunday is finally here!!! Had a good time yesterday too. Tommy actually let me watch my Penn State on the big screen T.V. His Nascar crap didn't come on until later last night. So I got to see my Nittany Lions lose again. They played good enough, but their field goal kicker sucked!! He's the reason why they lost!! We have five T.V.'s in our basement, so yesterday we had on four college football games and baseball!! It was great!! See you guys' in a few hours!!
Penn State may have lost their first two games but they were both close, had a shot to win both and were both against quality opponents. Ask the "U" how it feels to be destroyed by K-State, 56-12?!?! Or Arkansas losing to UL-Monroe?!?! How about Nebraska and Wisconsin losing to two unranked teams. Keep your chins up Nittany Lions, you have NOTHING to be ashamed of! Just stay the course, the wins will come! The Lions of Autumn will roar again!!
Penn State- You cannot have your cake and eat it too... Just because you tore down the statue of JoePa, you think you have stripped yourself of the guilt? You should have your whole football team volunteering to prevent child abuse instead of losing your football games... Im not saying this is what Penn State should do, but if you try and play the "we feel so bad so be tore down JoePa's statue" and think you can move on thinking its okay is just sick... Figure it out Penn State, dont make a dead man the scapegoat and try to act like you have atoned for the atrocities. Its sick. The whole group of Nittany Lions football staff is as guilty as JoePa is, but boy isnt it convenient to put the blame on a dead man. Penn State you disgust me, and I hope and pray that your program will never recover. Either accept the shame and play on, or own up to the blame and do something about it... but DO NOT pin the blame on a dead man and play your season like everything is atoned for... (sorry about ending that sentence w ...
Penn State 16-Virginia 17 final score! If the *** kicker didn't miss the field goal my Nittany Lions would of won!
So my Nittany Lions lost again, then A&M lost, so...lets go Longhorns!!!
Tough day for the Nittany Lions , feel bad for Sam Ficken . Hang in there, better days are coming and go to *** NCAA
I've now managed to attend three college football games in two weeks. One went well (VT vs. GT) while I had to suffer through a second consecutive loss for the Nittany Lions. Charlottesville was still a lot of fun and the Hoo fans were gracious hosts. I personally have 4 years of eligibility left so I may offer my services as a placekicker to Penn State.
Frickin Ficken misses the FG for the game. Still a game well played by the Nittany Lions! Tough loss but don't stop believing boys!
I'm usually not one for "boycotts"- if I don't like something or someone, I don't watch it or them- but after the events of the past few months, and the "JoePA" demonstrations after the child abuse scandals at Penn State, I think I'll pass on any Nittany Lions football games on TV this year.
hoping for a steelers victory to ease the pain of a last second Penn State loss. Going to be a long season for the nittany lions
It's been a good afternoon for Virginia schools in football. Virginia Tech (2-0) cruised to a 42-7 win over FCS opponent Austin-Peay UVA (2-0) won a NAIL BITER at home against Penn State 17-16 after the Nittany Lions missed what would have been a game winning field goal with :01 left in the 4th quarter. VMI (1-1) wins its first game of the season, taking down Chowan 24-17 JMU and Liberty both play later tonight.
tough loss for the Nittany Lions today...thought we had that one..things will get better
For those interested, those Penn State Nittany Lions are now 0-2! The Nittany Lion field goal kicker missed not one, not two, not three, but FIVE field goals a Virgina won, 17-16. And they say there is no justice...
U-Va. quarterback Michael Rocco tosses two interceptions and is yanked after a fumbled snap, but Virginia survives thanks to Penn State’s kicking woes.

Penn State loses a close one at Virginia, 17-16. The Nittany Lions return to Beaver Stadium Saturday, Sept. 15, for a 3:30 p.m. kick-off vs. Navy when it will be Military Appreciation Day. See you there!
Penn State misses a field goal in the closing seconds as Virginia holds on, 17-16.Poor sportsmanship by the Cavaliers as they shoved the Nittany Lions' kicker,following the miss.Remember the Steelers' Roy Gerela missing a field goal early in a Super Bowl against Dallas.Cliff Harris made contact and taunted Gerela.The great Hall of Famer,Jack Lambert,who played with Gary Pinkel at Kent State,took matters into his own hands and threw Harris down,like a rag doll.The Steelers won.
A final from Charlottesville, Virginia! The Virginia Cavaliers defeated the Penn State Nittany Lions by a score of 17-16. LIVES HERE
Penn State's Sam "Kickin'" Ficken, goes 1-for-5 on FG attempts and 1-for-2 on PAT attempts as the Nittany Lions lose 17-16. ... Thanks for coming, son — Next?!?!
That had to be the worst kicking performance ever for Penn State! The nittany lions are suddenly searching for Chris Pickett!
another heart break for Penn State, it's gonna be long year for the Nittany Lions :(
This is the way its going to be for awhile. I will suppirt the Nittany Lions. You *** running down any of the players or the team need to shut your mouths!
Good thing the Nittany Lions don't know how to kick field goals!
I will always love my Nittany Lions...always!! WE ARE Penn State!
Can someone in State College please start practicing field goals.. Still love my Nittany Lions!
*** to be Ficken And the nittany lions they need a new kicker
That was a heck of a game played by 99% of the Nittany Lions.
Penn State misses potential game-winning 43-yd FG on final play, loses at Virginia 17-16. Nittany Lions are 0-2 for first time since 2001. -
Having a heart attack watching this game! Go nittany lions!!!
I've never been a Penn State fan, a dislike that goes all the way back to 1969. But here in 2012, in their opening game against Virginia, I find myself pulling for the Nittany Lions. They lead 16-10 in the 4th, just under 10 minutes to play.
Way to go my blue n white great defense plays today u still can't keep the Nittany Lions down
Breakfast and Nittany Lions Football...watching the game from sunny Hawaii (6 hours behind)
Penn State is on TV playing Virginia. I would have tried to use a lower profile but whatever they want. But I think changing from the Nittany lions to the Penn State Pedophiles is wrong. Plus I think the Predators has a better ring to it.
Sure would be nice to see a Penn State win @ Virginia. Th second half is yours. GO Nittany Lions!!! One Team!!!
To all my montana friends. I like the Montana Grizzlies and the Montana State Bobcats, too. Just not as much as my Nittany Lions.
Penn State is not just gonna roll over this season. These players want to win and if they keep playing like this, they are gonna escape Virginia with a win. Lets go Nittany Lions! And can't wait to see Texas A&M and Missouri play with Florida and the Bulldogs of Georgia tonight!
I don't get it. Who is the team in all white playing UVA today?? They look like Penn State, with the addition of the players' names on the backs of their jerseys. But they have gone for it on 4th down FOUR times already in the first half. And actually made 3/4! Hmmm... I wonder what JoePa would think? Come on Nittany Lions!!
Watching some Penn State vs UVA football!! Sorry Wahoos, I'm rooting for the Nittany Lions!!!
This featured Saturday ABC Channel 7 college football telecast features Penn State vs Virginia, in the Nittany Lions first away game this season. PSU has just taken a 6-0 lead in the first quarter. Why do I love watching Penn State football? My mother graduated from PSU in 1936. I took her back there in 1986 for the 50th Anniversary of her graduating class. There we met two of her professors for dinner and numerous fellow classmates. As a child I met Joe Paterno in Manhattan at an Alumni Fundraiser. I had even considered college there myself, but alas my grades weren't up to snuff. Mom passed away early in 2001. Until her last days at home we always enjoyed watching these games together. I am most grateful that the Lord took her home both before 9/11 and before this years' PSU heinous scandal. But I'll still watch PSU football and cheer in her memory.
Ohh nooo my college pick-em looks like it may be in trouble today nittany lions doing the *** thang out there, guess they couldn't strip Jo pa from their players hearts
Way to go Nittany Lions!!! Now let's have a good ENTIRE GAME, not just a good first half!
Come on nittany lions whip some cavalier ***
Noon - Time for the Virginia Cavaliers and the Penn State Nittany Lions college football game . Go Hoos GO !
Let's knock the nittany lions off their pedestal!!! Go beavers!
Nittany Lions at noon. Binghamton thereafter. This may just turn out to be a great day.
Since when does a college football team need: (1) Three large tour buses; (2) Four uniformed police motorcycle escorts; (3) Traffic stopped in all directions; and (4) Drivers forced to move to the outside lane (can the bus drivers not stay in their lane to turn a corner?). I can only hope that the arrival in town of the Nittany Lions to play UVA was not somehow confused with the arrival of a foreign dignitary, and that my tax dollars were not involved in the escort service. When did college athletes get elevated to a position of such importance that they require police escorts to enter a city to play a game? Sheesh. I'm sick to death of sports events taking precedence over everything else that goes on in our world.
Head behind the scenes as the Nittany Lions travel to Charlottesville, Va., for the week two matchup against Virginia.
Here at the University of Virginia ready for some football!! Lets go Nittany Lions!!!
I may be a UVA mom but I'm cheering for my Nittany Lions today!!

Zain Retherford is Penn State Bound by Jeff Upson The biggest name in Pennsylvania wrestling this off-season Zain Retherford has committed to Penn State University. The recent World Cadet Freestyle Champion has been riding a wave of success since April 2012 and the Benton High School senior will aim to cap it all off with his second State Championship in three seasons. According to Intermat.com, Retherford choose Penn State over Iowa, Oklahoma State and Lehigh. He projects to compete at 141 lbs. for the Nittany Lions and, with Cael Sanderson in his corner, the World Champion will be poised for success in the NCAA. Retherford is the second big name wrestler from Pennsylvania to stay in State at PSU, 2012 State Champion Matt McCutcheon (Kiski Area) also committed early last month.

Gene Wojciechowski from ESPN.com: "If you believe in such things, Penn State is a 10-point favorite at Virginia this Saturday. But if they scuffle again, and even lose to the Cavaliers, then what? A Penn State crowd of 87,000 (and dropping) at Beaver Stadium come Sept. 15 against Navy? I think the Nittany Lions will beat UVa, then Navy and then Temple before they start Big Ten play. But this will be a long, trying season in the second of many long and trying seasons to come for Penn State." I think Gene Wojo is off his rocker.how could he think PSU is favored at Virginia. It's not like a 3 point spread. It's 10 points. 20 points off. And Penn State wouldn't be scuffling if they lost to UVA...it would be a pretty big upset if they won. They might be favored in 4 games this year. All 4 non-conference games are going to be tough. Temple is getting really good. Navy is always tough (ignore the Notre Dame debacle) and Virginia is much improved.

football: Nittany Lions looking to bounce back after loss |
from cbs sports Penn State football games will have a different feel this fall, as the school will attempt to put the past behind them by supporting a new-look Nittany Lions team. On the field, there will be names across the backs of Penn State players. On the sideline, first-year coach Bill O'Brien will pace the same grass once occupied by Joe Paterno. In Beaver Stadium, you will no longer hear a crowd singalong of Neil Diamond's 1969 hit "Sweet Caroline." According to the Altoona (Pa.) Mirror, the school has decided to cut the song from the musical play list for Penn State games this season. Some concerns were raised by university officials regarding the "touching you, touching me" lyrics in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal. According to the report, some officials were uncomfortable with the perception of 100,000+ fans singing along to the potentially questionable lyrics during this hypersensitive time for the school.

I'm looking forward to many good times and memories!
