0 Blue-White Countdown / 18 Days: Hackenberg The Lead, But Depth An Issue At Quarterback

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. Other than that though the question remains: Who is the next starting quarterback at Penn State? If by chance Hackenberg returns for a senior season that question won’t need to be answered, but unless Penn State is starting a true freshman next year, the next man up is either transferring in, or already on this roster.

0 HackPSU Spawns Phone-Tracking Flying Robots And More In Just 24 Hours

One would think that it takes an extensive amount of time to build a mobile application or a robot that searches for your electronic devices. From hardware to software, students from Penn State and elsewhere gathered on campus this weekend for HackPSU, a 24-hour hacking marathon. Hundreds participated in the marathon, developing ideas and using computer coding in order to create a finished product in just one short day. In the end, one team stood out above all the others, and it may have come as a surprise.

0 Blue-White Game Countdown / 19 Days: Cue The Music, ‘Hey, It’s Franklin’

James Franklin and about thirty dozen of his closest friends got together in Holuba Hall on Saturday morning. It was Practice Five of Penn State’s 2015 spring football season. But Job One for Franklin was about a half-dozen things. All were part of Penn State football. And Franklin was in the middle of them all — equal parts CEO, coach, recruiter, cheerleader, spokesman, and even manager.

1 Kevin Hart Cracks Up A Soldout Bryce Jordan Center

The name of Kevin Hart’s most recent standup comedy tour is “What Now?”, a question that Hart said he gets quite often these days. In other words, now that he’s reached international fame as a comic and starred in a handful of movies, what comes next? For now, the answer seems to be a pretty simple one: keep making people laugh. On Sunday night at the Bryce Jordan Center, Hart did just that in front of a packed, sold out arena.
