Happy Valley is SportsNation

ESPN’s SportsNation concluded its tour of the Big Ten Thursday afternoon outside the Bryce Jordan Center as an energized crowd of Penn Staters bellowed “Joe Pa-tern-o” chants throughout the majority of the airing.

Penn State fans welcomed the ESPN crew in typical Penn State fashion, and SportsNation hosts Colin Cowherd and Michelle Beadle took full notice; most of the dudes took full notice of Beadle. One fan’s sign even asked for her hand in marriage.

Other signs caught the camera’s attention, specifically one that read, “PSU parties harder than Braylon Edwards.” Edwards was charged with a DUI early Tuesday morning.

Nittany Lions had an impressive turnout for SportsNation (it was mentioned multiple times that the crowd made them “totally forget about Michigan”); but will that kind of energy be around for the Temple game this weekend? That type of fan support certainly hasn’t been there for the first two home games.

So, what is it going to be? Is a talk show based around internet surveys going to garner more excitement and oomph than Saturday’s match-up against Temple? Weigh in!

Wrestlers Rebound with a Sweep in Michigan

Well that’s more like it. After getting trounced by Iowa last weekend, which snapped a 13-match winning streak, the Nittany Lion wrestlers rallied back with two convincing victories over Michigan State and Michigan this weekend. The first stop of the road trip was in Lansing Friday night where they mauled the Spartans 30-9. Then they headed back to Ann Arbor for a 28-13 beating of the Wolverines.
