PennStatePucks would probably get shut down. I'd like to see something that covers all PSU hockey -- women's and club teams included. Follow the commits some (as much as possible).  Haven't found anything like that since TYT shut down.

I was actually surprised they didn't try to come after me for HockeyValley.com.  It would be an interesting case.  PSU trademarked the name, but that was after I bought the domain. 

I'm pretty sure that means you own it and they can't take it from you.  Of course, they have more money than you (unless you are secretly a billionaire) and could make life tough if they want.

Penn State got a single vote in the latest USCHO men's hockey poll.  That makes them tied for 35th -- with Bentley, the school they play on Thursday and Friday night.  If we can somehow get another series sweep, we might start to make some real noise in the polls.
That won't mean anything.  Bentley is a terrible program.

By  making noise, I just mean getting more votes and being closer to the top 20.  On Bentley, someone thinks they are good enough to rank them.  I know they are in what is widely considered the worst conference.  And they are not the best team in that conference.  But a sweep gets us to 5-1-2 --- with our only loss to the 16th ranked team who we were leading late in the game.  Things get a lot tougher after this weekend.  Two games at UMass-Lowell and two games at UMichigan.  Then Cornell in MSG, two at Wisconsin followed by the Three Rivers Classic before we finally get another home game in January (against Ohio State).  So things could get ugly in a hurry.

Lar, since both hockey teams are improving rapidly, can you do something with hockeyvalley.com?

Make me an offer.   ;)

Not sure what you mean by that.  I'd be willing to help you out with it.  But I'm certainly not in any position to purchase it from you.

-Refs have a wardrobe malfunction and don't overturn a blatantly bad INT call
-Refs allow a field goal when the play clock has been expired by at least 3 seconds
-Refs inexplicably charge OSU for a timeout on the game tying FG attempt when Urban Meyer later said he didn't call timeout, only to have it later revealed that OSU had 12 guys on the field




And they charged us for a timeout to stop the clock when the clock should have already been stopped.

Think 1987 Fiesta Bowl. That's our only chance. Get a bunch of turnovers and don't make mistakes.

In hindsight, it seems as though the difference between the games wasn't the turnovers, but that the Fiesta Bowl punter was able to reverse field position much better than our punters did on Saturday night.

Penn State gets its first series sweep in Pegula winning 7-1 today. Freshman Scott Conway had two goals and two assists. His first goal was ridiculous. The kid is really good.

And with UM and their stake in the field stunt at MSU, other rivalries are becoming more heated.

Possible concussion.

I'm proud of our guys tonight regardless of how this ends.

Nice hemet rip on that sack of Hack.

Obvious dead ball foul right in front of the center judge.  Not sure how that was missed.

Anyway, I still feel like PSU is playing much better than at UM.  OSU is just a far superior squad at this point.

All three scores are tainted in some way so far. Just disgusting. Franklin and Barber should be calling Indy on Monday for an explanation.

At a couple seconds. What is going on tonight?

They don't need help. Which makes that horrible call even worse.

I'm hearing the replay guy is claiming he got the wrong feed.  Anyone confirm this?  How about tune in to ESPN?  Ridiculous call.

ESPN guys said the truck told them the replay guys weren't seeing the same feeds they were showing.

Sounds conspiracy worthy to me.

I swear Onward State can screw up even the simplest stories.

"After the baseball team was mocked by opposing teams and the pink faded to black in just two years, the school switched to royal blue and white, a pair of colors that has become synonymous with Penn State."

Note to Onward State:  "Fade to black" is a video editing term, it doesn't happen to real physical things 

We wound up with blue and white because the pink faded to white and the black faded to blue.


Doesn't mention the black fading, but could certainly have been part of the reason for the change.

...if the Sixers end the season with only 16 wins, they will have done worse than 5 out of the past 7 expansion teams.   

But with MCW, Noel, Embiid, Saric and their lottery pick this year, they'll have a better roster in a couple of years than most of those rosters have ever had (slight exaggeration, but not much considering most of those teams haven't won anything yet).
