David Taylor and Ed Ruth are wrapping up their careers as Nittany Lions in just a few weeks and will certainly go down as two of the best Penn State wrestlers ever. With the program's recent success in mind, we decided to look back at the careers of some of the most notable Penn State wrestlers of all time.

If you look around the stands at THON, you'll see plenty of different colors, letters, flags, but a few groups decided to take a different route by bringing inflatables.

Besides the usual crazy hats, tutus and outfits we've seen, the awesome THON outfits wouldn't be complete without colorful and crazy socks. We took pictures of some of the best.

An NCAA Championship re-match, three bouts with both wrestlers in the Top 10, and three consecutive matches with bonus points against No. 5 Oklahoma State made for an exciting match for the Nittany Lions in Rec Hall, as Penn State closes up its regular season schedule.

It was 22 days since Penn State's last deal meet, but it was clear the team didn't miss a beat. The Nittany Lion wrestlers defeated Purdue 34-3 in Rec Hall Sunday afternoon, dropping only one bout to the Boilermakers. David Taylor added his 47th career pin, and four Nittany Lions had major decisions.

James Franklin was only Vanderbilt's head coach for three season, but it didn't take long for the fanbase to fall in love with him. He took the Commodores from a 2-10 record to 6-7 in his first year as head coach, followed by two 9-4 seasons in the talented SEC. Under Franklin the Commodores won back-to-back bowl games for the first time in team history and finished in the top-25 both seasons.
