Comparing Jackie Robinson to Colin Kaepernick?  C'mon.

Kaepernick is a millionaire who is protesting poor treatment of minorities by protesting the flag of a country that actually gives him the right to in fact protest.  In other countries such an act would get him shot or arrested.   

He certainly has the right to protest.  But, I find his means of protest entirely and extremely misguided.

I find your criticism of his protest entirely and extremely misguided.

According to Jessica Camerato, Sixers will waive Tibor Pleiss.

The Sixers made a trade today with the Utah Jazz.

Sixers traded PG Kendall Marshall to Utah for C Tibor Pleiss and 2 2nd round picks. Kendall Marshall's contract is non-guaranteed, and Utah doesn't need a PG, so they will waive him. The Jazz are looking to clear cap space in the hopes they can sign Derrick Favors and/or Rudy Gobert to new long term contracts. Tibor Pleiss is making $3 million guaranteed this year, so it's an easy move for Utah, though it might be a slight overpay to give away 2 2nd round picks.

It is unclear if the Sixers will keep Tibor Pleiss or not. There hasn't been an indication as of yet. I'm speculating as to whether this means a Jahlil or Nerlens trade is in the mix soon and Tibor was brought in as backup. However, Sixers could just waive Pleiss and his guaranteed money, getting themselves closer to the cap floor. Should be an interesting few days if they're making another trade.

I found this place shortly after I graduated in 2010, and looking back on my join date, it looks like I joined shortly after our loss to Maine that 2010-11 season. Needless to say I'd imagine it is highly likely I was not speaking with the Tavern in mind!

Even in the world of expansive coverage of college basketball and recruiting, this is still my favorite spot to go.  Even though I think you can get better recruiting coverage from Chad and Eric (they do a really good job of finding information and synthesizing), this place is still my favorite for general psu basketball stuff.

I'd be wary going by your join date, don't sell yourself short - at some point in time we switched hosts and created new accounts :)


You are giving 21 year old me far too much credit.

I really like its this year - we can (should?) very realistically start the B10 2-0... when was the last time we started like that?  Then MSU and UMD are one plays (so is NW, but I'll gladly take that trade-off) - and they are BOTH "home" games?!  Iowa is another 1 play. 

When is spring break?  Does the @ UNL or @ Minne game fall over break?  Pretty happy that @ UMich is during the break as well, meaning no student section.

All-in-all, I am very happy about our entire sched this year!

My quick search of old PSU schedules showed that we last started B1G play 2-0 in 2007-08. We beat Northwestern in the opener 79-68, and Illinois 68-64.

Interesting stretch. I was thinking mid-January to early February was difficult, but really should add in 1/4 at Michigan, MSU in the Palestra for that as well. Overall it's laid out fairly well for us imo.

As talented as Frank is, I think this will likely be his only chance to medal in the Olympics. 65kg has some really young studs out there who could easily overtake him by 2020, including PSU's own Zain Retherford. I hope he continues though, if he represents us at Worlds, I wouldn't rule out his chances to medal there.

All of Frank's losses during this incredible stretch for him were to high level guys. I think he belongs, now it's a matter of becoming more aggressive on offense.

Frank lost to Asgarov 10-0 but will be able to wrestle for the bronze since Asgarov made it to the gold medal final.

Frank Molinaro won his first match 2-2 on criteria against Gadzhiev (who had a 26 match win streak coming in). He will face defending Olympic champion Asgarov in the quarterfinals. Frank faced Asgarov in the finals of the German Grand Prix and lost 5-4.

A friend of mine from PSU is close friends with Monica and actually went down to Rio to support her. Congratulations to her!

Larry, you may want to update Marcus Littles' height for the class of 2018. Unless he is actually a 5'11'' PF/C that weighs 245 lbs.

These Unlocked videos are going to make it exciting but difficult to get through 99 days to the season opener.

EDIT - Would it make sense to put them in a separate thread? That way we can just have one post that has them in order.

EDIT 2 - Well now this post just seems silly in a separate thread.

I love the Web series, and love that Hampton was owning his mistakes after practice. Also loved that Pat gave him the chance to close out the post-practice huddle as a way to get him more comfortable and communicate with his teammates. Those are the kind of small things that could help Joe going forward.

The conditioning will come, and I assume that's why he got to campus so early. His progress throughout the series will be worth keeping an eye on

I am very pleased with Pat's success in recruiting. He's completed what may very well be the most difficult part of being a coach at a program like Penn State: i.e. getting players with good pedigrees in HS and AAU to want to be trailblazers at a bottom tier P5 school.

I can't wait for this season, even if I sit here today unsure of what is to come in the 16-17 season.

Again, not sure you've read the law or even understand it from what you say.

1. The law is the HB-2 law in North Carolina.

2. The law clearly is bigoted towards the LGBT community. Transgender people have to use a bathroom that they don't want to and identify with. The picture above is a good example of a man who would have to use the female dressing room and bathroom in North Carolina. As Larry put it, how does that even remotely make sense? Mind, the most devastating outcome of the law is that it overrode all local ordinances concerning wage, employment and public accommodation. This clearly is a law that will allow and outright validate discrimination of people based on their status in the LGBT community. So, say the city of Charlotte, NC wants to pass a bill saying that businesses in Charlotte offering a public accommodation cannot choose to refuse service upon someone based on their sexual orientation. They are now prevented from doing so because of HB-2.

So the answer to your question is YES, the law does promote discrimination against the LGBT community and local governments can't do anything about it. I'd love for you to explain why this law isn't bigoted.

Do you know what the law is Skeeza? It's a law that allows discrimination of the LGBT community because of their affiliation with that community. It isn't so out of line to call the law bigoted or the people that passed it bigoted either. It is a clearly pro-discrimination law based solely on sexual orientation and identification.

I think we will need more tangible on court success before Pat can get a 5 star or one and done caliber player. But the fact the kid is listening is huge. Let's not forget that Markelle Fultz, probable top 5 pick in the NBA Draft in 2017, took an OV to our campus. Wouldn't be surprised if Pat gets Jalen onto campus at some point.

What kind of walk is it from Penn Station to the Palestra?  Safe?

I assume you mean Suburban Station? There isn't a Penn Station in Philadelphia, but Suburban Station is the most used station I'd imagine. But anyone training in from the suburbs of Philadelphia will want to get off at 30th Street Station. The walk is safe, it's just a walk down Market Street and I believe part of it is perpendicular to Penn's campus.

Also, there's a big plus for anyone out of the area who wants to bus in for the game. Out of town buses go to 30th Street Station as well, and it's a 10-15 minute walk to the arena. So you won't have to worry about taking more public transportation. I'm going to be desperately trying to go to this and if anyone wants to arrange a PSH meet up or something, I would have no problem working with them or putting it together.

I have no idea how the law passed

There's some pretty incredible gerrymandering going on in North Carolina. I'd highly recommend a Google search as there's not just one article that will give you the full run down.

North Carolina deserves very little sympathy. They've been gerrymandering the hell out of their districts to be able to pass this kind of legislation. NBA has the right to do with their game as they please, and bringing it to a location that is openly discriminating on the LGBT community doesn't look good for them either.
