Homecoming Kickoff Announced

homecoming-09As the 2009 NCAA football season inches closer, more and more details regarding the schedule have been released. This week’s reveal is specifics surrounding the Nittany Lions’ homecoming game.

Penn State’s Homecoming clash with Minnesota is set for a 3:30 p.m. kickoff on Oct. 17 in Beaver Stadium, the third start time announced by the university.

The contest with the Golden Gophers will be an ABC regional telecast, with ESPN or ESPN2 airing it in the rest of the nation.

This is the third announced kickoff for the season, with the 8 p.m. Big Ten opener against Iowa on Sept. 26th and the 3:30 Halloween game against Northwestern having been previously revealed.

All three televised games have great potential – both Northwestern and Minnesota saw dramatic improvements in win-loss records last year, and the Iowa contest is already being built up as this year’s “revenge game.” Given the team’s Rose Bowl appearance last year and this squad’s potential, don’t expect these to be the only nationally televised bouts that take place in Beaver Stadium this season.

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.”
