No White House Game for 2010 Season

Late last week alumni season tickets were mailed out, and all of them had pictures of the Nittany Lion football helmet on them, except for one. The ticket for the September 25th game against Temple had a picture with a caption that read “Everyone wear white.” Many who saw this (including this author) assumed that the PSU-Temple game had been deemed the “Whitehouse” game for the 2010 season. This launched a storm of responses claiming that the game against the Owls (who haven’t beaten Penn State in over 50 years) didn’t do the event justice. Many fans questioned why the Michigan game on October 30th wasn’t the Whitehouse Game. It now appears that all this speculation was for naught.

Paternoville President Alex Cohen, citing “a high ranking Athletic Department official,” tweeted that there was a “printing error” and that there would be no Whitehouse game this season. Onward State sent an email to Associate Athletic Director, Greg Myford, who confirmed the Paternoville Committee’s comments. Myford echoed Cohen’s statement claiming that “the confusion comes as a result of an oversight in the process of getting tickets printed for the season.” He went on to say that the next anticipated Whitehouse game would be against Alabama on September 10, 2011. The Penn State Sports website shows the Temple game as “All-University Day/Varsity ‘S’ Day.”

Three Words: For the Glory

When I sat back one night in January thinking about my time at Penn State, I tried to come up with a single word that would adequately describe my experiences here. As I attempted to determine what that magic word might be, my mind began to grasp the absurdity of that challenge. How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
