Happy Easter everyone!
Here is Saquon Barkley, freshman running back at Penn State, lifting a great deal of weight like it’s no big deal:
If you’re a Penn State fan, you probably remember current Jaguars receiver Allen Robinson’s leaping catch that set up the game-tying touchdown in the 2013 Homecoming game against Michigan. From this point forward, you will also remember that catch if you ever see Robinson with his shirt off:
Penn State lost to Georgia in a bowl game this afternoon. It was an ugly game made uglier by star Penn State QB Christian Hackenberg leaving the game in the second quarter with an injury. His backup threw a cool touchdown, but other than that, nah.
Jerry Sandusky will spend the rest of his natural life in prison for molesting and assaulting numerous boys over a 15-year period, all met via his Second Mile foundation. The day he was sentenced, Pennsylvania’s State Employees’ Retirement Board cut off his sizable pension from his years of service at Penn State.…
Penn State alumnus and comedian Keegan-Michael Key returned to campus for homecoming week, and he pretended to be head coach James Franklin for the football team’s meeting. The players loved it, particularly when Key imitated Franklin’s handshake.
I’m all for football teams carrying out batshit rituals that are meant to exorcise bad vibes, but I feel like going to the Let’s Meaningfully Bury Some Shit well just one week into the season is a little much. Penn State would disagree:
This here is Quinn Nordin, and today he committed to Penn State. Below, you’ll find a video he and a friend put together announcing his commitment, set to “Coming Home.” It makes no real sense in the first place—he’s from Michigan—and involving some sort of small, fixed-wing aircraft makes it even more of a non…

D.J. Newbill might not be a household name, nor will he likely become one during the coming NCAA Tournament his Nittany Lions probably won't make, but he is the Big Ten's leading scorer and is capable of moments like this buzzer-beating three that gave Penn State the win over Minnesota.
Last night, Keith Olbermann got into it on Twitter with Penn State fans and students—originally over, of all things, the school's annual pediatric cancer fundraiser. (His tweets are embedded below.) It was weird and unnecessary, and now ESPN has taken Olbermann off TV for the rest of the week.
The Big Ten Conference announced today that they fined Penn State men's basketball coach Pat Chambers $10,000 for remarks he made after the team's loss to Maryland Saturday. Now, some Penn State students are trying to crowdfund the fine for him. Please don't do that.
Friday's announcement that the NCAA would restore Joe Paterno's 409 wins, stripped in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal, led to jubilation in State College. That included shows of support from other athletes: Penn State's men's hockey team wore stickers reading "409" on their helmets for that night's game. The…
The NCAA announced today that it will restore Joe Paterno's 111 wins to Penn State's football program, putting Paterno back in first as Division I college football's winningest coach. Keith Olbermann celebrated the news by naming the NCAA and Penn State the worst in the sports world.
Former Penn State head coach Joe Paterno just became Division I college football's all-time wins leader, thanks to a late-game victory over the NCAA. Congrats to Joe!
According to a report from the Philadelphia Inquirer, the NCAA is considering once again reducing the sanctions against Penn State levied in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. The Inquirer reports that Penn State, the NCAA, and state officials are negotiating proposals that include restoring the 111 wins taken…
Another day, another embarrassing set of e-mails made public by the ongoing lawsuit by Pennsylvania state officials against the NCAA over the 2012 sanctions imposed upon Penn State in the Jerry Sandusky case, and this time it's a big one. According to the Associated Press, a 2012 e-mail from NCAA attorney David Remy…
Who wants to read some internal emails that make the NCAA look incompetent, reactionary, and completely unable to justify its own authority?
