Penn State Basketball / Re: Blue - White Scrimmage 10-25-14

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.

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). 



Good to get back to old fashioned hoop talk!!!!!!!    :)

That is GREAT interview.  Not just the same old PR bullcrap.  Very insightful and honest.

This is another example of what is meant when I say that the OOC oppontents do not matter.

A team that schedules a bunch of nobodies, but wins those games against pathetic teams, will still be highly ranked.  It doesn't matter if you schedule Kent State or LSU.

There are SO MANY MORE transfer players in the present day game. Many do not need to sit out a year. 
Just saying - - - - Be nice a have a ship available in the spring!!

he should hold the spot until the spring for a transfer, JUCO or whatever. 

Makes sense!

FWIW the Bucs were 4th in the NL (15 teams) in runs scored. 9th from the lowest in runs scored against.

I figured we'd see a couple head scratcher games this year.  This is the low point roster from the sanctions, no?  And yet 8 wins are still very doable.  What I'm worried about is Hack finishing the season healthy.

Well said!

Maverick Rowan has re-opened his college recruiting. Rowan originally committed to Pitt before his soph year.

The Rowans might be more trouble than they are worth, but young Rowan can shoot the eyes out of the basket. Of course, he'll also be a 20 yr old freshman if/when he enters college.

Rowan is a top talent! I'm sure everybody watched the 2014 PIAA Class A Championship game!

This has sure been an interesting and exciting year. I am very surprised of the high number of runs we have scored. 639 so far this season. We scored 634 all of last year.

I went to Morgantown for a game in 1980 (I think.)  The weather was SO BAD (very heavy rain) there was little fan interaction.
Been to a bunch of PSU games in Pgh................I find it hard to image a more difficult fan atmosphere for PSU folks!
