Very happy with the win today over a team we've struggled with. Nice to see that ChambersEra has finally decided to show up now that the team has won two in a row.

He was on a vacation ... it's just coincidence he's back now.

Ugh. Unfortunate. Not the coincidence. The part about the vacation ending.

Love that the picture they used in that picture shows the BJC without the curtains in place.


How can you tell?  No part of the picture shows the upper deck - it's all below the ribbon. 


They've cropped it. The original picture showed 2 or 3 rows above the ribbon.

This hits hard.  I was walking in with my 2 young sons, and a father and 3 year old were walking back towards the parking lot.  The kid was in tears and telling me there were no tickets.  Sadly, I only had 1 extra ticket so I didn't offer anything.  Had I known they literally couldn't get a ticket I would've given them mine and taken my kids for ice cream.

It's up to you if you want to do this but I would suggest you relay this to the AD.

I've always been pissed off at all the season ticket holders seats that go empty every game and wish they'd come up with a way to allow others to sit in them if they aren't going to attend.  Especially kids!!

I'm a season ticket holder who's seats are often empty. I wish they would let others sit in them, too.

Or let them be sold for less than face value on the ticket exchange. I always put them up there for the minimum value. They never sell. It's very frustrating.

Ready for this.  They've closed off the upper deck.  Unfortunately that means there are a ton of people who haven't been able to buy walk up tickets. How absurd is that.  They finally have a game people want to come to and they won't sell them tickets

Banks and Dickerson both wanted the assist on that missed rebound to give up the open layup.  Nice guys.

Awful. But at least DJ's getting warmed up.

Oh, look. A bad 3-point attempt early in the shot clock that ends up an airball. Great start! At least we're consistent.

Thought I had two tickets but still haven't heard from the poster who IM'd me.  Still looking.  Not a big deal -- I'll buy at the door if nobody has a pair they want to give away.

Anyone else going to the basketball game and hockey game?  Any thoughts on what to do between games?  Less than 2 hours to kill, but not enough time to get too far away from the PIA.

Sorry...Had Internet troubles at home last night. You should have them in your inbox now.

(Here's how my chat with cable company went when I called to complain about the outage this AM:

Cable Company Rep: How can I help you?
Bstanf: My internet isn't working.
CCR: Your cable modem has been disabled.
Bstanf: Why?
CCR: There's no record of any reason.
Bstanf: Re-enable it?
CCR: Ok.)

Saves me some money. I can watch us be an average team on TV.

Average? If only....

I'm not an expert, but perhaps the team should take fewer 3 pointers 2 seconds into a shot clock.

I can't believe I'm still watching. Or that people think our coach deserved an extension. This is gross.

Problem is regression to PSU basketball mean, not in-game mean.

They're 0-0 for now, but just wanted to get an idea of whether people thought the 2017-2018 team had a shot at making the postseason?

7 other Big Ten players, including guards much worse than DJ, made the Naismith Award watch list.

What a load of crap.

If we get to 70 (turnovers), I'm pretty sure it's a free Big Mac.

At least there's something to look forward to.

Was halftime when we were supposed to talk about contract extensions?

This was the Banks' foul



That's pretty egregious. It'd be one thing if it was chest-on-chest contact, because the dribbler is entitled to the path, but the flailing arm is inexcusable.

Pretty sure the foul was for the reach-in right before this. Still looked like a non-call to me, but a lot more understandable when you see in motion, not just the still.

Watching Nebraska give it away down the stretch. Their lead is down to 6, and they went a looooong time without scoring.

Why won't Teddy V give us a foul call?

Glad to see TV Teddy is calling questionable charges the same on both ends.

Why can't any announcers notice that there's no "d" in the middle of Shep's name? It even matches up with how we defend the 3 point shot, so it should be easy to remember.

Anybody following the podcast "Serial"? This would make for a good next case to focus on....

Seems possible, since Sarah Koenig lives if State College, if I remember correctly.

(PS-- I'm in the minority that think Adnan did it. This week.)
