Penn State is in a good place and a bad place with quarterbacks heading into spring practice. On the one hand, Christian Hackenberg returns for a third year behind an allegedly improved offensive line.

The time has finally come, the day we’ve all been waiting for. That day, my friends, is UPUA Election Day. For those not involved in student government, UPUA elections can seem pointless. You don’t know these people, you don’t know what they do, and quite frankly you probably don’t care. But really, you should, for a couple of reasons.
Stop what you are doing and take a listen to the Movin’ On opener Mute Cites’ debut EP. You won’t regret it.
