The authority of the University Park Undergraduate Association has recently come under scrutiny, but the powers of both the UPUA and Council of Commonwealth Student Governments have increased significantly as of last night, when the UPUA passed legislation to appoint students to the Student Technology Advisory Committee.

Penn State football has finally returned to the top five, but unfortunately for the wrong reasons. In a "special investigation" done by Sports Illustrated and CBS News on crime and college football, Penn State was tied for 4th in players charged with crimes with 16 heading into last season.

Well we fell for it again. It was supposed to be different this time. For the second time this season, we had a game billed as "The Biggest in Bryce Jordan Center History." Surely the 15,000+ who packed the BJC would not be disappointed again. Maryland was an aberration. We were taking on an Ohio State team that we only lost to by three IN Columbus and Purdue and Wisconsin showed that this team was beatable, that it did have flaws. Lastly, it was Senior Night. It was the last chance for this team to make sure they had a shot to make it to the NCAA Tournament, something that Talor Battle and the gang had yet to experience. It was time for that last miracle to occur and who better for it to come against than the top-ranked team in the nation.
And then, we remembered that Ed DeChellis still coached this team.
