With the state of Indiana taking questionable steps toward discrimination, the Big Ten should think long and hard about the realistic possibility of leaving the state. The state of Indiana recently passed Indiana Senate Bill 101, otherwise known as the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. The act is designed to mandate that religious liberty of individuals […]

Penn State is building a foundation with offensive line recruiting

Penn State recruiting is building foundation at offensive line

Anyone who watched Penn State in 2014 knows what was the biggest weakness.

For multiple reasons, the offensive line was the biggest hurdle Penn State rarely overcame last fall but the Nittany […]

Christian Hackenberg remains well respected as NFL prospect

This spring is seeing plenty of talk about quarterbacks around the Big Ten, and for good reason. Ohio State’s quarterback trio remains one of the biggest stories around the Big Ten this spring. Connor Cook at Michigan State is a highly respected player as well. As much as those quarterbacks will be discussed, there is […]

Nittany Lions head to Chicago looking to pull off miraculous run

As much as any team that has lost six of its last seven games can, the Penn State Nittany Lions enter this week’s Big 10 tournament in Chicago on an emotional high.

With great stipends comes great responsibility

By all accounts it appears as though Penn State is currently in position to be able to offer the largest player stipends once Big Ten programs begin handing out stipends to scholarship athletes this year. If the numbers hold firm, then Penn State’s coaching staff will figure to have a legitimate recruiting advantage in one […]

Morning Cup of Joe – Keith Olbermann apologizes, top Big Ten QBs ranked

Our pals over at Talking 10 ranked the top five quarterbacks in the Big Ten entering this offseason. Perhaps surprisingly, only two Ohio State quarterbacks made the cut. Penn State’s Christian Hackenberg received some praise and is ranked second. After being suspended by ESPN for his poor Twitter behavior last week, Keith Olbermann returned to the […]

Cheap tickets remain for Newbill’s Senior Night against Ohio State

Penn State will finish in second to last in the Big 10 standings, only ahead of Rutgers, but will have a lot to celebrate on March 4th against Ohio State on Senior Night.

Why you should stop being outraged about Penn State’s 2015 schedule

I generally try to avoid reading the PennLive Fan Line, but sometimes I either cannot help myself or I open the link by accident. In any event, I was not all that surprised to see the complaints in the most recent Fan Line post this weekend, with a couple complaints about Penn State’s 2015 schedule. […]
