Apparently Chambers has to call Time Out 4 times and waste 2+ seconds before the whistle blows.

According to the scoreboard, Cornell is 100% from the line. Which is understandable, as most of those shots are better defended than their 3 point attempts.

Well, at least there's something for the highlight reel.

Wow, BT being in the game makes a huge difference.

He should be in for at least another 30-60 seconds before fouling out. #pessimist

You can at least be glad that, unlike me, you didn't come all the way here to watch thiis.
Not pretty!

Sadly, I can't. Where ya sitting? Perhaps we can commiserate together.

Wondering what DeanWormer thinks. I'd like to hear something positive right about now. Then again, I probably wouldn't understand because I don't know anything about basketball.

No ref watching the baseline on that last rebound. Thought he stepped on the line. Glad we got it back anyway.

No re-entry allowed, so I had to shell out for a ticket. Good seats though.

Thanks, Tom. Couldn't get the ticket website to load on mobile.

Anyone know how the ticketing works for to ight's games? Is it one ticket for both of them?

I ask, because I'm sitting at a bar a block from the arena, and wondering if I can just ask someone leaving the first game for a stub to get in.

I honestly thought Barack was going to be the Democratic nominee in 2006.

Considering he didn't announce he was running until February of 2007, I'm finding this incredibly difficult to believe.

I'm skeptical, too, although I was bummed that I simply didn't have any cash back when Apple was at $10.

But there was a groundswell of support for Obama well before he announced, so it is possible. I know I was on him to some extent well before he announced. Not sure I would have bet on him to get the nomination.


I started DraftObama.org in late 2005. By mid-2006, the press couldn't get enough Obama coverage. I was approached by reporters all over the world to talk about the draft movement. We had several tens of thousands of signatures on the website encouraging him to run. By November 2006, we had grass roots boots on the ground chapters in all 50 states organizing rallies, making signs, and raising money. We aired the first television ads of the presidential race in December 2006.

So, Tim is right that there was quite a groundswell going on well before the February announcement.

United Airlines 918
IAD -> LHR Aug 28

United Airlines 7655
LHR to DUB Aug 29

Invoice is showing up now.

Got an email asking me to renew my season tickets.

Clicked on the "click here to renew" link. There's no invoice in my account for season ticket renewals.

Perhaps the email was a bit premature.

It does say perks this year are:

$20 worth of concession coupons
Free PNC Flex Book
One Open practice

I really hope this thing doesn't erupt. Until I'm in Ireland, I mean. I wouldn't mind so much being stuck there and having to work from my company's Dublin office. :)

Anyone else from the board heading over for the game?

Has anyone heard anything about tickets for the Charleston tourney yet? It looks like they're available on the tourney site, but I'd like to sit with other PSU fans.

annoyingly taking over every thread to piss people off with off-topic bullcrap you spew in such a way that even people agree with your points hate your guts?

Actually, I've heard that the adult season tickets holders seats might be moved for next season too.

This would be a bummer. I chose my seats because they were the row behind the student section, and I was tired of being shushed by alumni who thought I was too loud and energetic (I only wish I was kidding).

Altoona Mirror poll........

Finally! Some hard science-based numbers to debate.

Penn State Basketball / Re: Importance of a home court advantage
« on: February 13, 2014, 04:29 PM »
I know people put up decent money for season tickets, but if they aren't using them, they should be allowed to be filled on game day.  I would be shocked if those season ticket holders not coming up to the game would really care at all?? I would gladly pay full price for them if they weren't being used, instead of sitting behind the hoop or up in the rafters.  I am not sure how you would determine whether they would be coming or not, but I am sure it could be done.  1-2 weeks in advance you somehow log in and say you are not coming and if your seat is -re-sold you get a credit or something.  The BJC gets more revenue from re-selling a more expensive ticket and the season ticket holder gets some sort of perk(credit), and the fans get a better seat which may translate into more of a home court advantage.

At one point, you could do that.   Not sure if it's changed or not because I never sell my tickets but you used to be able to get NLC points for turning your tickets in to be resold.

You can no longer do that. Unfortunately.

Penn State with a big win at the exact same moment Pitt has an embarrassing loss. A good night, for sure.

Duke/UNC got postponed eh?  Probably for the best, hell of a storm they're getting for that part of the country.

It's really not that bad here. (In Rutherfordton, NC).

People here literally literally go insane when snow comes around. Guy sent out an email at work about 2" having fallen this afternoon. I went outside 15 minutes later and there was MAYBE 1/8 of an inch.

The only bad part is that cable is out, so I haven't been able to catch the game except through the thread here tonight.
