Marshall transfer Kareem Canty will visit Auburn, South Florida and Penn State.

Maybe Devin Foster hates Chicago.

The other Devin Foster committed to Chicago State, so Chicago is covered.

I hate when carefrontations don't work :D

Remember, he said tean, not team.  Which may be accurate after watching this team this year :D

Marshall's PG, Canty, has been granted a release to transfer.

PSU reached out to Canty

She got the job

I hate to hear about other football factories charging for Spring games; makes me think it will just be a matter of time.

PSU tried to charge for parking a few years ago and the outrage was so high, PSU quickly changed its mind.  I doubt PSU charges any time soon, especially with Franklin's comments on how the free game is a "thank you" to the fans.

Another example of a lot of red tape that is thrown in the way to blind everyone of actual progress on the real issue.

Or, intentional lack of progress on the real issue.

Zemgulis isn't a JUCO.

Weary's stats.  Seems like a mix between Taylor and Travis

Believe this is the same kid, if so, he is a journeyman. Committed to Chicago State in November (considered NC Central, Iona) while at Mott CC:

That article says he prepped at Chicago Curie. This tweet seems to confirm it's the same kid:

There were two Devin Fosters this past season in the JUCO ranks. 

PSU's -
CHicago State's -

Right, because only people who are drunk drift through stop signs.  And only people driving after midnight on weekends are drunk.

And the careless driving was an add-on by default for running a stop sign.

...on the flip side, I guess only COMPLETELY SOBER kids are driving through stop signs at 2 AM ...    ....AND BEING CHARGED FOR DUIs !!!!!    ::)

Usually, there is a reason why a policeman would administer a DUI test to someone who simply drifted through a stop sign. 

Officer - Son, it's 2am, have you been drinking tonight?
Driver - Yes.

Attendance officially estimated at 72k, which seems high.  Still a great crowd though.  But plenty stayed in the parking lots and didn't head into the game.

Beautiful weather...for those who wore sunscreen that is.  Oops.

I wouldn't have picked Woodward.  Because that means PSU's best returning 3pt shooter shot 32.6% in 2013.  239 TEAMS averaged that or better this past season.

I'm sure in the bright daylight of 2am the cop just knew the driver was not only black, but under 21 and drinking!

This is now the second freshman of a Chambers class to transfer at the end of the season. That is a red flag imo.

Hopefully it works out for Graham and us.

If it really was as simple as him being told he wouldn't be the #1 guy that he wanted to be, then it's not much of a red flag

With Woodward leaving we have a great chance at getting Devin Foster.  I hope he enjoys his visit in State College.

A great chance and an even greater need.

"The majority appears to arrive at this outcome because it is bewildered, as I am, by how the Board of Trustees of PSU could have approved or allowed to be executed a “Consent Decree” involving the expenditure of $60 million of PSU funds when the Consent Decree specifically states that the matter “ordinarily would not be actionable by the NCAA.”

If, as the majority suggests, the NCAA did not have jurisdiction over conduct because it did not involve the regulation of athletics, then the expenditure of those funds is problematic, given that PSU is a non-profit corporation as well as being tax-exempt as a charitable organization, and that Boards of Directors of non-profit charitable corporations have a fiduciary duty to ensure that funds are only used for matters related to its charitable purpose – in this case, the students of PSU. See 15 Pa. C.S. §5712.

Moreover, the majority position is understandable given the lax supervision by those responsible for insuring that non-profit and charitable organizations operate as non-profit and charitable organizations as well as their failure to take action against Boards of Directors and Officers who use funds of a non-profit and/or charitable entity to pay funds that they are not legally obligated to pay and/or expend funds not related to their charitable purpose or who no longer act as a charity. See Zampogna v. Law Enforcement Health Benefits, Inc., 81 A.3d 1043, 1047 (Pa. Cmwlth. 2013)."

DUIs and assaults are boring.  The media really hasn't made much of it, other than the local outlets lightly reporting it.

Changing the mood of this thread, Lacey Halsworth (the 8-yr-old cancer-stricken girl that MSU's Adreian Payne befriended and whose friendship got some play during the tourney and the slam dunk tournament) died yesterday
