"Hey Jerry, I know the area loves you, that you do a lot of good for these kids, and I know there's nothing we can really do about it, but can you stop bringing kids here?  We're worried a kid will try to claim you did something to him, and it'd make us look bad if it happened here.  We'll tell TSM but I doubt there's anything they'll do either.  So if we have to, we'll go to DPW"

It's been well-documented that Spanier (nor anyone else involved) was a mandated reporter in 2001.  Even as the law reads today, it's a very gray area if he'd be a mandated reporter because the kid wasn't there under the care of any PSU employee.

I had no idea he could even play the fiddle.  I wonder if he'll try out for the blue band?

Let me consult Lar's Blue Band Scholarship Matrix

Reaves' team went 2-3 at the Peach Jam.  Reaves generally played 3rd/4th fiddle to others on the team.

Taking it into one's own hands and warning TSM not appropriate protocol. Need to report. The NY Times reporter doesn't mention this. It's the critical point against him and those charged.

Report what?

Until we know what McQueary actually told them (and based on the actions of John McQueary and Dr Dranov, it wasn't anything serious), we can assume they did in fact follow the correct protocol

Some video of Sehic.

I think it's a good video!  Looks like a quality player to me. Great outlet passer!


A good passer, but, there wasn't much in the way of defensive highlights, and aside from a couple well-stroked 3's, his interior offense was cumbersome (even if effective).

Not that I'm doubting the offer, just saying the video didn't show much.

Another rough night for Frazier

1-6, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 turnovers in 15 minutes

I guess the old commercial for RIF reading is fundamental applies here. Also the Gilda Radner (Emily Litella) skit where she is told she misunderstands and looks at the camera and sheepishly says "never mind". Didn't look at the original post date stamp :-[

Don't worry, I did the same thing

Is this a double elimination tournament?  I thought they got knocked out?

They played 3 games, then based on those results, a championship tourney follows.  Or in the case of the Sixers, a quasi-consolation tourney.

Big Ten has 14 schools next year so if 10 made it 4 didn't not 2. It's the college athletics math Big 12 = 10, Big 10 = 14. Guess that's what NCAA is fighting against.

Actually, math is often time-sensitive.  So noting that the original post was prior to the 2013 season, yet the most recent reply was in regards to the 2014 season, that's also what the NCAA is fighting against :D

They play again tonight

Nope, they didn't break any rules.

But that's a pretty shady interpretation of the rule that totally goes against the point of the student assistance fund.

And now we're beating out, literally, Florida State, Florida, Georgia, Penn State, Michigan, Wisconsin

Improper usage of "literally" aside, I see no commits in this class that had offers from any of those schools.  Actually two guys are listed as having PSU offers, but I've never heard of them.

At least we don't have to worry about butchering the spelling/pronunciation of his name.  We'll just call him Davis.

Frazier didn't do a heck of a lot last night.  Only got 15 minutes and other than 6 rebounds, his stat line mostly came in the first 2 minutes of the game.

Titcus Pettigrew had a couple NFL cups of coffee, but I don't remember if he ever got a paycheck

NY Times with a surprisingly fair article discussing/interviewing Spanier.
