Cup of Joe [5.17.2012] – Where even Pitt can do something productive

Wow, long time no see, NLD. As a student I was not able to contribute much to the blog during finals, but now that I’m free on summer break, the morning links are all mine again – hopefully I can live up to the standards that Kevin has set over his past few posts, though.

Anyway, my personal favorite read over the past few days was written by Penn State historian Lou Prato. It’s a detailed piece about when Bill O’Brien’s older brother, Tom, played Penn State as a member of the Brown University football team in 1983. There seems to be some disconnect about whether-or-not he recorded a tackle in that game, though…

In other Penn State news:

PennLive.com does a great job writing about MLB Glenn Carson and his career in wrestling. Also, Navy’s triple-option offense is not easy for anybody to defend.

Victory Bell Rings has a write-up on the Coaches’ Caravan’s stop in Cleveland.

Outside the Lions has an intriguing article about Gottfried Fodor, the bus driver for Penn State’s Coaches’ Caravan.

ESPN has named Penn State’s most indespensibal players. Do you agree?

Jimmy Kennedy received his Super Bowl ring yesterday. Or is that Super Bowl bling?

If you have not read Dan Wetzel’s take on the Big Ten’s love affair with the Rose Bowl, what are you waiting for?

The BigTen Network has listed the top WRs in the conference – with only one Nittany Lion on it.

The conference is looking into joining the Pinstripe Bowl in New York City. Also, the BigTen / Pac-12 challenge is slowly coming along. Very slowly.


In other college football news:

Congratulations to Pitt, who has sadly beat Penn State in something – naming a starting quarterback.
