Let's take bets as to what his new screen name will be.

Remember when he pretended Chambers Era and Dean Wormer were different people, and acted as if he had no idea why anyone would accuse him of that? Good times, good times.

Why would Pat Chambers stick around one more minute than he has to with the absolute worse basketball fan base in the entire Big Ten?

Don't let the door hit your brother on the way out.

Not one positive you can take out of this debacle

What about the moral victory we got from finally having a chance to practice contested 3's early in the shot clock from well beyond the line in a real game situation?

This is gross. I've been on the fence about an extension, but I don't know how you can watch this game and think Chambers deserves another year, no matter what the recruiting looks like.

Whatever a Penn State men's basketball Mount Rushmore looks like, Newbill will be on it forever.

I'll play. Though I know I shouldn't bother.

Mt Rushmore has four faces on it. The first 3 PSU basketball players that belong on a national monument are easy:

1. Jesse Arnelle: Final Four, Record setter, champion for civil rights
2. John Amaechi: Great player, great student, and wonderful champion for gay rights
3. Joe Crispin: Sweet 16, Amazing 3pt percentage

The fourth is tougher for me. For me candidates would be Calvin Booth, Talor Battle, Tim Frazier, DJ Newbil, and Jamelle Cornley.

Jamelle may not have the pedigree of the others, but the way he fought and clawed after hurting his shoulder to help that team win the NIT was amazing. Calvin Booth and his shot blocking was the player that got me excited about PSU basketball when I was growing up in Bellefonte. He's also the only one of the above I've had a beer with. Talor, Tim, and DJ were all leaders of teams that depended on them to play 40 minutes every night for PSU to have a chance.

I think when it comes down to it, I'd pick Calvin Booth as the fourth face on the monument.

Pat Chambers or Pat Croce, I just want a competitive basketball program.

I'll say it again, if we aren't committed to this staff for the foreseeable future, I'm done with the program.

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.

Penn State Basketball / 2017-2018 Postseason Thread
« on: December 23, 2014, 01:12 PM »
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.
