Actually, this virus strain that has hit Happy Valley is really bad. My son and daughter-in-law (she works at the University) both got hit with it and were down for 10 days each and were still coughing after two weeks. This is probably what MJ has.
This is unbelievable territory for PSU and I never thought I would see the day where the pundits are touting them for the Final Four. Be still my heart.
Screw generational, in terms of athletes, basketball sense, mechanics, and buying into PC's game philosophy, this is by far the best Penn State team I have watched in my 50 years of watching Penn State basketball. It is a fantastic run so far and I keep hoping they continue to keep climbing because I do believe as Pat has noted that they have not put a complete game together yet. If they all go off at the same time, look out everybody in the Dance, they are going far.
BUT, will it stop the refs from hitting him with the ticky-tack fouls and actually call the fouls when he gets hammered when he gets the ball?
Only Micah and Miles were composite 5 stars, the others hit above their average and fit my comment about having the drive to exceed their recruiting expectations and perform like 5 stars once they got to college.
Until you tell your Dad about it and he asks you why don't you just accept these facts of life and not be vindictive when it is explained to you in such a plain and understandable manner.
Thanks for such a comprehensive list. With regards to the internal candidates, why aren't you adding Seider's name among them?
The Franklin coaching tree has added another branch. Good luck to Ricky! Onward and upward, this happening just makes the OC at Penn State a stepping stone job that should interest many a young coach. CJF will have some interesting options to evaluate before selecting his next OC.
Lindsey gets big congrats from this fellow EMS grad for her original thinking and ability to snag some seismometers for the "test." It will be interesting to see her paper on the ground movement transferred from the stadium structure and our fanatics (the best student section in the country) to the ground.
This overall was a very impressive effort. I don't ever remember a time where they looked this dominant against a team with a pulse as the start of the 2nd half. We have scorers throughout the starters and off the bench, what a new concept for PSU. And added to the defensive intensity that these long, quick, athletic boys bring to the floor, I actually am getting my hopes up for being a solid upper B1G team throughout the year.
