Again? Unfortunately

It seems like some people don’t learn their lesson. Penn State sophomore fullback Michael Zordich was cited for underage drinking last week. That comes after a DUI arrest last September. Zordich is not currently practicing with the team. It will be interesting what Joe Paterno has to say during his press conference before next Saturday’s [...]

A bit of news

Nothing major coming out of spring practice yet. The biggest piece of news is that fifth-year running back Brent Carter is not with the team and plans to transfer. Carter, if you remember, had his moment in the sun in the final regular season game of 2007, when he shredded Michigan State’s defense as Penn [...]

Spring practice kicks off

Penn State started spring practice today, which will last just under a month before the annual Blue-White game on April 24. The Nittany Lions go into spring drills with plenty of certainties and question marks. The wide receiver position is as deep as I can ever remember, Evan Royster should end his fabulous career as [...]

Bowman gone, Royster next?

No surprise here, but junior linebacker Navorro Bowman declared his intention to enter the NFL draft today. Bowman is projected as a first-round pick and should test well at the combine and Penn State’s pro day. I expect him to go somewhere in the teens. Next up is whether or not junior running back Evan [...]

Easley to Florida

After de-committing from Penn State on Wednesday, Staten Island defensive end Dominique Easley verbally pledged to Florida at the Under Armor All-American Game on Saturday. Easley had said that his final three choices were Penn State, Miami and Oregon, which he took an official visit to on Dec. 4. The 6-foot-5, 260-pound recruit took an [...]

No grades necessary

Usually, after a Penn State game, I go through each position and assess the Nittany Lions’ play, but after Penn State’s 19-17 victory over LSU in the Capital One Bowl I don’t feel grading the Lions’ performance would be fair to them. Did you see that field? How could either team do anything? That was [...]

Recruiting and bowl game thoughts

It seems that Joe Paterno might just make an in-home visit this recruiting season. Vernon Smith, the father of All-American running back Marcus Lattimore from South Carolina, expects Paterno and offensive line coach Bill Kenney, Lattimore’s recruiter, to make a visit on Jan. 28. Lattimore took an official visit to Penn State in November and [...]

Recruiting updates

Let’s start first with a player who is already committed to Penn State. Adrian Coxson, a wide receiver from Baltimore City College High School in Maryland, pledged to the Nittany Lions in May, but recently took official visits to Florida and Georgia. West Virginia is also in the mix for an official. There were rumors [...]

PSU not in the BCS was right call

I didn’t really need a day to to think about what to write here. Instead I waited to give myself a chance to read some Penn State message boards and see what the Nittany Lion faithful had to say about Penn State playing in the Capital One Bowl and not a BCS bowl. The reaction [...]

Easley looking around

Staten Island defensive end Dominique Easley, who committed to Penn State after an unofficial visit in September, took an official visit to Oregon for its game against Oregon State on Thursday. Easley left without making a commitment to the Ducks. Before Easley pledged to the Nittany Lions, Oregon was one of a handful of teams [...]
