Loved the "never give up" attitude..................BUT...........the better team won.
I fear this will be the blueprint of too many games this season.

I'm happy for Martin. He's living the "Canadian Dream!!"   ;)   
This is how free agency is supposed to work.

I think these made for TV multi game events should be scheduled during Thanksgiving or Christmas academic breaks!

Classic "cupcake" game. Need a bunch of these when you play 30 something games a season.
Many got to play. Everybody will learn from their PT.
Moore played well. .
Travis had a nice game with his rebounding and defense.
We get a "win" on our record!!  Overall  a "feel good" type of game for the players.

The NYC bowl makes sense for the bowl people. It would sell tickets and increase TV eyeballs.
BUT, would it benefit PSU???? NY in winter???  Not much of a "vacation." 
Also, I don't want to play ND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Difficult for me to "forecast" scoring more points than Temple. Especially as many as 10 points.   :-\ 
I will just watch and hope. 
Next win gets us to a bowl game.

I vote for IU as our rival   ;)   

I look forward to the start of play. I still contend this season will be very "interesting!"  We will be a tall/physically strong/veteran squad.  I'm optimistic but unsure how things will play out.
As for style of play I don't think we will project as a team who will play a fast full court (offense or defense) game. I think we should try to copy the tosu, ~itt model of playing solid half court offense and defense, working VERY hard to limit turnovers and fouls, taking good shots and rebound, rebound and rebound. One of the things I will watch is the number of fast/long/forced three point shots we attempt. Successfully limiting them should lead to a good number of victories.

Fingers crossed,

About the Geno dunk....................
It was indeed a great dunk. BUT I don't see it as dunking "over" the defender. In my opinion a player who is dunked "over" jumps , arms extended, trying to block the dunk. But, is unsuccessful.   
The defender played the situation well! He was just a help defender coming from the other side. He was not in position to play the ball. He squared his feet, outside the semi circle, to take a charge. Two seasons ago it would have been a charging call. Now it should be a "no call."

and the Lady's program shows past players.

 Makes sense to me! Look at this year's team. One senior, who is the only returning starter.

The individual images are on separate panels so they are easily replaceable.  I would have thought they try to start a tradition by having current players on the panels.  If you just put your Hall of Fame type players up there, it becomes state after a short period.  Since they went to the trouble of making the pics easily swappable, why not do it?  Hopefully the women will change their approach next year. 

Better yet.  Do the same thing on the other side of the arena, but this time for the HOF types.

They need to put up an area for HOF types immediately. We can then start a thread on who deserves to be included. :)

Does this include HOF coaching types?????     ;)

I don't know why Penn State wouldn't have a live stream up on for this. But good to hear about Foster and Garner for sure.

Wanted to start a thread for the scrimmage. Back when I was traveling to SC more often the Blue - White Game was my FAVORITE game of the season!!
Hopefully we will get many "eyeball" reviews of the game!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another very good Q & A. That's three recently!

This is going to be a very interesting year. We seem to be pretty deep 1-12. But alas the game is only played with 5 players at a time.
How do we match up 5 on 5 with the rest of the league??..........................I'm not sure. Time will tell. 
Coaches going to earn their money this season dealing out PT!

a similar play went against PSU vs. OSU, but in that case the OSU receiver was ruled to have caught a pass that clearly bounced.  Can't remember if that was before or after replay, but assume it was before.

I remember a game at Beaver Stadium. I was late game....... fourth down.......deep in their own territory.......  short pass to the TE. They continued on to drive for the winning score. LONGGGGGGGGGG  drive home to Pgh!!!!!!!!!!!
This would have been before replay!

In all, I thought the play was equal or maybe a little in PSU's favor. The fake punt changed the game and made it a "field position" 4th period NOT in our favor. Without the fake punt we have a good chance of winning. 
Clock management was poor. Plus, a couple of calls at the worst time sure did not help. (Note: Some calls are MUCH more important than others!!!!!)
Every future game this season will be a struggle. I think we play 5 very close games!  Will be very interesting to see our offense in the last 6 games.   PSU will play hard the rest of the season. 3-3 is my guess.

Rock Chalk Jayhawk is cool because it's old and I believe it has some geological significance to the region as well (or that could be a myth).
