    PSU Fan blog: Something Needs to be Done: A Call to Action

    Now that I’ve said what I needed to say in my previous post, it’s time I said what needs to be done.

    PSU fan blog: Something must be said

    I've been quiet, observing the football team, and the university, for 30+ years. I've been quiet on the blog, just being an average fan, for the past year. I didn't disappear, but I realized that I was putting in too much time that was better spent with family. Watching and re-watching games and...

    MMQ hitting the road

    State College in the rearview this AM, heading .... south. Tuscaloosa at sundown (maybe). MMQ will offer a full report when he has access to a computer again, maybe even photos if he's lucky. We'll talk soon. Let's ROLL THE TIDE!

    March on the Penguins

    Well that was mildly interesting, to say the least. Bolden, 20-29, 239, one strange pick, two Brackett TDs (one was a checkdown!) in a very impressive debut, even if it was YSU. He's still 18 for crying out loud. Of course, leave it to JoePa to rain on the parade. He won't name a starter for Bama...

    Penn State exhibition season opens

    Another season is upon us, friends, so welcome to year 6 of MMQ. Unfortunately, today's game is mostly an exhibition against the FCS (formerly Div. 1-AA) Penguins of Youngstown State. The weather forecast is for the mid 60s and high winds.

    With the addition of Nebraska and the pending schedule changes that will ensue, gopsusports took down the 2011 and 2012 conference schedules in the last few days. Considering the STEP plan's implementation was designed to coincide with the extremely attractive 2011 home schedule (Bama, Iowa,Wisky...

    Penn State, 2005 national champs!

    What would've happened had the NCAA and USC compliance offices not been asleep at the wheel... cue Keith Jackson, Jan. 4, 2006. KJ: "Good evening, folks, and welcome to the 2006 Rose Bowl, the BCS national championship game. We're in for a dandy tonight. Could it be just one year ago the Penn State...

    Big Ten Expansion

    Welcome back to MMQ. It's been a while, but I just couldn't stand all the talk without weighing in about the impending B10 moves. For me, it's long overdue. The conference has gotten quite stale from an interest perspective. Does anyone really get up for games with Northwestern? Indiana? Purdue? ...

    Citrus Bowl

    Well, it's finally here. I love bowl games. It's like a second season opener since you have to wait so long for it. And then you have to enjoy it and make the feeling last for eight months. Of course, it'll actually be about nine months since PSU won't play a meaningful game at the Beav until...

    Boycott the bowls

    I watched "The Tony Barnhart Show" on CBSCollege this week. A few weeks ago I got access to that channel. I read Barnhart on the sports wires during CFB season, and it was pretty obvious he was an SEC homer. But he usually hated the BCS. Especially when Auburn got hosed in 2003.
