Success With Hyperlinking Is Bringing Out The Fat Pants

Every Thanksgiving needs Cowboys cheerleaders. - Tom Pennington

Your news and notes with links covering Penn State and beyond.

While I have the chance to do so today, I'd like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow. The grad students down here are getting together with lots of turkey, potatoes and pumpkin pie. I hope that you and your families have great times as well.

Welp: Miami Edition - The NCAA is giving former Miami football players connected with Nevin Shapiro an ultimatum: Talk with us by Friday or be considered guilty of everything he has said. It seems they don't have time for a thorough investigation once again, so they'll just presume guilt if the 114 players believed to receive improper benefits don't come forward and tell their stories. Keep on keepin' on, Mark! Idiot.

All The B1G Expansion Takes: Everything, well, not everything, Maryland and Rutgers-related served hot:

Lots of Shots = Many Points: There have been many stories done on the Grinnell College fast-paced, up-tempo, rocket-like offense in the past, but many people still got their first taste of the college's reputation last night when guard Jack Taylor went off for 138 points last night, a new NCAA record. DJ Newbill needs a new partner to climb back to the top of the "Best Backcourt In The Nation" rankings... (please, for the love of god, do not take this seriously)

RASSLIN': New Intermat rankings are out. Ed Ruth stays at #1 in the 184-pound division and Penn State is still ranked as the country's top team. See Ben and Galen for further analysis.

McGloin Still Up For Burlsworth: Semi-finalists for the award were announced yesterday and McGloin is still in the running to win it. Now that I actually know about it, this might be my favorite post-season award given out, beating out my previous favorite of none of the awards.

#Culture Update: Thanks to psfann for reminding me to put this in the SwH, but math genius/Penn State offensive lineman John Urschel is getting a paper published in the Journal of Celestial Mechanics and Dynamic Astronomy. But, yeah, football factory, athletics above academics, blah blah blah and such.
