It was a crime that BYU was unseeded.
Sure. But that's not the point. Can't you feel the sarcasm?

I don't understand some of these comments. As long as Penn State is not contributing to Penn State's athletic department, they are essentially getting millions of dollars of advertising for free. If deep pocket donors want to keep building facilities and upgrading current facilities, so what? If I want to buy tickets and donate to the NLC, so what? All of that is a plus to the school, not a "COST" (Sandusky crap aside, since I still don't think it was football related).
The idea that the building is not open to the public is silly. The Pegula Ice Arena (used in contrast as a public facility) has facilities that are not open to the public that are similar to Lasch, only for hockey instead of football.

Sorry ... I just thought the headline was funny. I didn't actually read the article!
Kind of surprised that this thread hasn't gotten more play out of all of you.
A Penn State team sits on the brink of its sixth national title in the last eight years and all we can muster is a line from Cappy and a sentence from yours truly about a very exciting semifinal match last night.
Is it the fact that it's women playing a sport that just doesn't get you excited? I'll tell you something...for anyone who is a die-hard Blue and White fan, what Russ Rose and this team of Lady Lions is doing is UCLA/Wooden worthy.
This is not fencing or chess...this is a legitimate sport played at a ridiculous high level of competition that is much more exciting than watching Hackenburg get sacked time and again by a crappy Illini defense or Penn State squeak on by a crappy Marshall team.
Yes, it's a Penn State Hoops board...I get that. But I also have known many a folk on here to bleed Blue and White for many other sports.
With all that said, I'll be at a couple parties on Saturday night and will have to tune in the title match after midnight...but I hope others on here will take an interest and share their thoughts during what I believe will be title number seven. For We Are...(oh, I've always hated that chant )
I think in the end, it comes down to the performance of the individuals in the positions of trust.
Bear in mind, that an earlier comment by someone said that ALL trustees should be alumni.
I can gaurantee that you wouldn't allow for the board of directors of said company to be run by entirely by former customers (alumni...face it, that's what we are).
If we are going to make investment in something proportionate to our votes, lets start with government and make our votes weighted to the taxes we pay.
I do think the size of the BoT should be smaller and consist of a mix of stakeholders.
Furthermore, Pennsylvania may contribute 6% of the annual budget, but how much of the capital budget was funded by Pennsylvania over the years.
Pennsylvania’s Basic Pension Formula
MULTIPLIER 2.5% or 2.0% x YEARS OF SERVICE X FINAL AVERAGE SALARY = RETIREMENT BENEFIT
PSU locker room bulletin board material?
I think Hull will lead the defense and team to a victory in this one, while the offensive line does just enough to make Hackenberg's life a little easier than it's been during the regular season.
Penn State 24
Boston College 17
In the big games...Bama beats down Ohio State, while Oregon wins a track meet in Pasadena over FSU. Bama over Oregon for the title.
Love that were getting some recognition - even got one point in the coaches poll. And a 10 seed in CBS's bracketology - awesome.
Does it matter? eh. Is it hype? Maybe/probably. ...But I like the program getting some hype. Been quite a while.

For the first time ever, Penn State Hockey is ranked. The Nittany Lions come in at no. 20 this week in the USCHO poll.
