Help A Brotha..Er, A Pair Of Researchers Out

As reported in Onward State’s infancy (oh, times were simpler back then), a Penn State team of researchers, led by Stephan Schuster and Webb Miller, were the first to entirely sequence the genome of an extinct animal – the Wooly Mammoth.

The folks over at TIME realize what a big deal this accomplishment is, and have nominated Schuster and Miller for their “Top 100 Most Influential” people issue. For the duo to make the jump from the pool of 200 finalists to make the issue, they need votes:

Time has set up a Web site so that everyone can vote to select the top 100 winners out of the 200 finalists. Penn State fans can vote for the Penn State team at http://www.time.com/time/specials/packages/0,28757,1883644,00.html online.

The link above may take you to the overall page, so for those of you who don’t have the time to rate all 200 nominee’s influence (psh, you’ve got embarrassing photos of yourself to un-tag on Facebook!), try this link.

Go there and continue to extend the legacy of Penn State with only a few clicks!

Gorman Abruptly Resigns

Head coach of the men’s soccer program Barry Gorman unexpectedly announced his resignation Monday. He leaves a legacy of 22 years of coaching and three Big Ten titles in his wake. Citing “personal reasons,” he has left the team to a nation-wide search for his successor.

“We expected Gorman to be there,” [rising Senior and Co-Captain Andres] Casais said of next season. “He was a father figure to us.”



Oof, that can’t feel good. The move isn’t completely out of the blue, as Gorman was periodically absent during the past few weeks without notice. But from all accounts, his intention to resign was only revealed yesterday. On the abandonment scale, this registers just slightly above “going to the store for some cigarettes and never coming back.”
