It snowed in October. At least that was interesting. Oh, and Penn State beat Illinois 10-7. I guess that happened as well. Heading into the game, the teams were heading in opposite directions, with the Nittany Lions winning six straight, while the Illini had lost two in a row. Penn State was also looking to avenge a 33-13 loss to Illinois from last year at Beaver Stadium.

It's difficult to define a dynasty, but no one can argue that the Penn State Women's Soccer program hasn't reached that level of greatness. That being said, it is always a bittersweet moment when part of that dynasty must move on after their four years are over. The Big Ten Champion Women's Soccer team will celebrate senior night tonight as the team looks for its thirteenth consecutive victory during a 7 p.m. match against Purdue at Jeffrey Field.

Alas, my friends, our beloved Guido has struck again. This time, he has decided to declare a student whiteout three days in advance of the Illinois game. Now the casual fan would probably say, "OMFGZ YES!!!", but I am not—and you shouldn't either.

Movin’ On 2011 Brings Out Students, Despite Rain -- Photo by Dave Cole
Movin' On released its second survey of the year this week. You can take it here. I must say I was hopeful when I saw Movin' On's first survey. Despite the fact that there were a lot of fairly obscure acts on it, they were at least good bands. But the excitement of the first surveyof the year is gone and the second, much more lackluster one has arrived.

Wednesday night's meeting of the University Park Undergraduate Association was, perhaps, a microcosm of sorts for the Sixth Assembly, a snapshot of the first two months of T.J. Bard's presidency. Unfortunately, the Assembly failed to capture the momentum provided by last week's wholly successful meeting, instead falling back on its own reliable trope of creating disagreement where unity ought to be fostered.
