For as much as we like to talk about football on this site, we'd be remiss to not call attention to Penn State's excellence in other sports. On Sunday, October 23rd, the fourteenth ranked Penn State women's soccer team went to Michigan and beat the Wolverines 4-0. The win secured Penn State's 14th consecutive Big Ten title in women's soccer. This set a record the longest streak of championships ever in Big Ten women's sports. So let me be the first (of us here at BSD) to congratulate the soccer team for this amazing accomplishment.
On top of this, sophomore Maya Hayes earned her fourth Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week award, as she tallied 4 goals against Michigan and Michigan State this weekend.
I think we all saw this one coming. Gerald Hodges had a monster game on Saturday, with 14 tackles, 1.5 sacks and an INT. His efforts were rewarded as he was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week. Though he's sharing the award with a Purdue player.
Whether Moye goes or not on Saturday, 3 Penn State receivers have stepped up nicely in his absence.
Mark Wogenrich wonders if Penn State's apparent confusion at QB is done by design?
This isn't exactly PSU related, but the University of Alabama-Huntsville announced today that they will no longer offer hockey as a varsity sport after this season. PSU's move to D1 hockey touched off some conference re-alignment that left UAH out in the cold, so some will (incorrectly) blame Penn State for this.
