The news never sleeps — even when Penn Staters are spending 48+ hours drinking and celebrating art in Happy Valley for the Central PA Festival of the Arts. Here’s everything you should know about the news you missed this weekend when you were busy standing in line at your favorite State College bars:

Tim Curley & Gary Schultz Surrender For Jail Time; Graham Spanier Plays Washboard On Allen Street

Former Penn State administrators Tim Curley and Gary Schultz surrendered Saturday to begin their jail time for child endangerment convictions related to the Sandusky scandal. In the midst of asking for a new trial or a new verdict, former Penn State president Graham Spanier was granted a delay of sentencing on Thursday.

But G-Span didn’t lay low last weekend. Instead, The Centre Daily Times spotted him playing the washboard with the Rustical Quality String Band as part of Arts Fest on Allen Street Saturday.

First Look At Al Pacino As Joe Paterno

Sunday morning, Variety.com published an image of Al Pacino, who will play the all-time winningest college football coach in an upcoming HBO movie that will be directed by Barry Levinson. It’s the first look we’ve seen of Pacino’s portrayal of Paterno. The next day, friend of the blog Ben Lerman shared pictures of Pacino in action and fully dressed as JoePa on his way to the set in New York City.

Four-star receiver Daniel George
Kicker Jake Pinegar
Three-star receiver Shaquon Anderson-Butts
Three-star quarterback Will Levis
Three-star defensive tackle Judge Culpepper

Legendary Wu-Tang Clan rapper even stopped by Holuba Hall on Sunday so his son, 2020 prospect Raekwon Smith, could participate in one of the program’s elite camps.
