The Lions-Pride merchandise website, which has been crashing all afternoon from a traffic overload, released a pre-order link for the new 2013 Nike Penn State replica game jerseys. While much has been made about potential changes coming to Penn State’s iconic jerseys, most fans thought they would need to wait until the fall to check out the new threads.
Dr. Cathy Wanner will replace honors program founder Jack Selzer as its new director on July 1, according to a Penn State news release. Wanner is a longtime Penn State professor of history, anthropology, and religious studies, specializing in socialist societies. Selzer said in a phone interview that he “couldn’t be more pleased” with her appointment as director of the program. “She’s a scholar immensely respected by her colleagues in the College of the Liberal Arts,” he said. “She also has a tremendous breadth of knowledge.”
One day after it was announced that Penn State will embark on a week long tour of Europe, the team suffered a crucial blow in the form of Associate Head Coach Eugene Burroughs leaving the program to return to Marist University, where he was an assistant coach from 2000-2004.
