Drunk Sober High
The Penn State Lady Lions are starting off this season with high expectations as they are ranked 13th in the Associated Press preseason poll, the highest of the four Big Ten schools in the voting. In total the Lady Lions will face six teams ranked in the preseason AP Top 25, including three squads from the Big Ten.
If you think you have a cool Halloween costume for this weekend, beat this one.
About 20 trustees did indeed meet this morning at the Nittany Lion Inn -- and several others attended via conference call -- although none would offer comment on the contents of the meeting on the way out the door to the four waiting reporters. Penn State released a nonspecific statement soon after, saying that the trustees needed more time to look at candidates and offering no timetable for a selection.
The Nittany Lions (4-3, 1-2) could use a win after the beating they took in Columbus last Saturday at the hands of Braxton Miller and the Ohio State Buckeyes. With the Illinois Fighting Illini (3-4, 0-3) coming to town tomorrow, there's a good chance that Penn State will get that win and even out its conference record through four Big Ten games.
It's almost time for another football Saturday at Beaver Stadium. These mid-season, weak Big Ten opponents used to be something of a chore for Penn State, but after coming off one of the most crippling losses in program history, every game means something. Ever since Illinois coach Tim Beckman came into State College to recruit after the sanctions were implemented, Penn State has had an unlikely rivalry with the Illini. Here are our staff predictions for tomorrow's noon kickoff.
Although Homecoming weekend -- and the now-legendary win over Michigan -- was only a few weeks ago, it is already time to move towards planning Homecoming 2014. On Monday, Claudia Bonilla was named Homecoming 2014 Executive Director. We met up with Bonilla, who served as Homecoming 2013's OPPerations Director, to ask her a few questions about her new job.
