Nittany Lions to Face Scarlet Knights…in 2014

rutgersIn this odd time of year, where it’s not quite football season but things are being set in motion (Blue White is in 9 days, after all), it’s always nice to get a significant piece of football news that isn’t a practice injury.

Old rivals Penn State and Rutgers will renew their football series in 2014 and 2015, Tim Curley, Penn State director of athletics, announced today.

The teams are scheduled to meet Sept. 13, 2014 at Rutgers and Sept. 12, 2015 in Beaver Stadium.

I know no one really says “You know who needs to be taught a lesson? Those damn Rutgers fans!” But it’s nice to see the team will be playing at least somewhat decent non-conference competition in the next few years – the Scarlet Knights have made four consecutive bowl appearances.  Between this and the upcoming series against the Alabama Crimson Tide in 2010 and 2011, things are looking up for Penn State’s strength of schedule. Or were you happy with shellacking Syracuse?

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.”
