If it was such a crappy deal, then how come so many want it?

Are there ANY OTHER deals for a kid who wants to play football???????????  and train for the NFL Gzillions. 
Maybe indoor football. Does the Arena league have a minimum age?

P.S. In the "old days" Pgh used to have a semi pro team (maybe a couple.) Don't know if they exist any longer.

I mentioned this in the OT gone wild thread. Wonder when this "compensation" will start to get taxed

I would guess the same day the universities pay taxes on the sport revenues!!!!!!!!

I think the first priorities of a high quality grad transfer are:
1. Assure (to a large degree) a starting position and opportunity to star
2. Play in a conference that is going to get mucho respect and professional notice   

Seems to me PSU could be a very good opportunity for the right player!!

Finally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   
I need a break..................and I would think that the kids do also.

Good. So hopefully we won't have to read any dumb "Cupcake Man" posts here for awhile!

 :D   :D   :D   ;)

If there was someone who ever should change his username, it's tundra. ;)

Absolutely.  Tundra should definitely change his name immediately -- unless he already went into offseason hibernation.

Hibernation ????   Au Contraire................ In my original post I meant I needed a break from games!!!!!!!!!!!  NOT out of season discussion.
In fact...... the off season is when my Cupcake Man  8)  persona grows stronger!   Now is the time to convince the coaches who read this board to OCC schedule per the Cupcake Theory (explanations given upon request  ;) !

Still alive and well,

Eron Harris to transfer from WVU.

http://westvirginia.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1624049#sthash.oI9bKwTL.dpbs

Wants to transfer closer to home. He is from Indianapolis I believe!   IU ??  Purdue ??
He is a classic "shooting guard!"

I saw the 2nd half of the Kentucky-Wichita St. game.  The thought that stuck in my head was how fast, how hard and how efficient Kentucky ran it's half court sets! It brought a smile to my face thinking of threads on this board discussing PSU's half court offense.

~itt's out...................   :)     
I knew I should have put some money down that our season would last longer    ;)

Excellent AAA game. N. Goretti defeated Susq. Twp. in OT.  Newton had 33 points.  He is an excellent outside shooter. Going to Miami!

Halftime of a great Single A game. 38-33 MC&S.Watkins looks great!!!!!!!!!!!  Rebounding, blocking shots, finishing shots! Played smart......No fouls! I've said it before his play reminds me of Buck Williams. Which is high praise from me. Buck was one of my all time favorite players! 

Game over. Lincoln Park came back and won 70-66. Watkins was not as dominate in the 2nd half but announcers said he finished with 17 points and 17 rebounds. I would guess 6-8 blocks also. LP Soph and ~itt commit Maverick Rowan had 37 points. He is quite a player!
All in all a fun and entertaining game to watch. I thought refs did well also.

tundra can't be happy with the halftime score of the PItt/Colorado game

Committee threw ~itt a bone in round 1 knowing they were zinging them in round 2..............................  I will be quite sad if Florida doesn't whip ~itt!

I have an idea!!!

Let's win the CBI (6 games, I think.)
Start the next season with a bunch of cupcakes (we should draw a weak ACC team.)
THEN.................all media types will follow the words Penn State with the words.................. owners of the nation's longest winning streak!

Think about it,

Penn State Basketball / PIAA Basketball 2014

While some PIAA game info has been posted on other threads I thought the topic desired it's own thread.
Finals are this weekend.  I have my TV set to record! Single A game between Philly MC&S and Lincoln Park in Midland PA should be a classic game. PSU commit Mike Watkins will battle Lincoln Park's 6-9, 6-8 and 6-7 all D1 prospect front line. 6-7 Soph (Rowan) is a ~itt commit!   
I've also seen the other 2 Pittsburgh schools. New Castle and Seton LaSalle.  Both quality well coached teams. AAAA New Castle is really fun to watch. They play great pressure man-to-man defense!

Penn State Basketball / Great game last night
« on: March 19, 2014, 08:23 AM »
Watched most of a great game last night. 3rd round NCAA D2 game between PSAC Champ East Stroudsburg and West Liberty (WV.)
ESU came into the game averaging 84 ppg. WL averaged 102 ppg. I  saw ESU play West Chester a couple of weeks ago in the PSAC Championship game and liked their fast pressing style of play.
Last night WL won. I think it was 89-84! 
The game was great fun. FAST..........  But not crazy wild. Not a large amount of TOs or PFs.  This makes 4 straight NCAA round of 8 for WL!  Their coach has done a sensational job.  While WL is probably only 10-15 miles from Wheeling it's on a very rural serpentine classic "country road!."

Siena is 195 (RPI) with a 15-17 record, and the 6th place finisher in the MAAC."Do you think that Penn State could have got in the CBI last year if they had paid the tab?  Do you think Penn State last year was any worse than Siena is this year?  Radford has an RPI of 244.  They have only beaten 1 other team the entire year that had a winning record.  They only played 1 team with an RPI above 100.  They are awful.  They are a 5th place team in the BIG South, a conference ranked 28th among the 32 conferences.  ...don't get me started on Tulane.  RPI 220 and a 16-16 record

I'm all smiles!    ;) 

Enjoy,

My 2 cents:  :)
My old and experienced eyeballs saw a "very down" bigten11121314 this season. They saw one very talented team (MSU) who has not played super well until recently. They saw 2 high performing kind of "over achieving"  teams (Wisc/um.) They saw 3 average teams (tosu/Neb/Iowa.) They saw 6 teams (well how do I say this and still be nice)...............lesser teams.

How does PSU project next year?????????  Good question. I think the answer is unknown. I'm pretty sure they will need substantial help from a couple of the new players (2 red-shirts and 3 new players)  to be successful!       
BUT, I will hold on to the belief that we "have a chance!"  This belief (valid or not) will hold my interest during the off season.

OSU gets a 6 seed vs. Dayton.  They could meet Cuse in the 2nd round

Hard to believe (tosu with a 6)...................~itt got a 9th seed..................BUT I'm not complaining!!!!!

Are NBA players BETTER BASKETBALL PLAYERS because they play over 100 (included pre and post season) games??
NOT by a long shot. An NBA player would be best served playing in the 50 game (or less) range! 
The concept of "diminishing returns" is real and valid! 
Same principle can hold true to college players! ....................AND I haven't mentioned the travel involved!   

WHY....does the CBI exist?  WHY do college teams play so many games already?   
I'm not going to give away what I think is the answer.   BUT I think it deserves some thought!

I would rather we just ended the season and not play in the CBI.   
It's just been a long season. Remember we went to Europe last summer.
