Success with Hyperlinking Will Wipe the Floor with Everyone

Kirk Irwin

URBAN ANGRY! Ohio State wide receiver Evan Spencer made a few comments about how the Buckeyes would "wipe the floor" with Alabama this past week. Obviously, Urban Meyer was not pleased with the comments and had some harsh words for Spencer. In Spencer's defense. the audio of his comments show that he was at least half-joking with the statement. Unfortunately, sarcasm doesn't translate to print and when you add in the constant shouting match that is Twitter, these comments can easily take a life of their own. Just ask Gordon Gee.

G.O.A.T Has Allen Robinson reached G.O.A.T. (greatest of all-time) status? The B10 branch of ESPN debates this and even talk with other Penn State legends to get their take. Robinson was asked his opinion on the matter, but he declined to offer his opinion by simply stating "Just being in the conversation with those guys is an honor." His humbleness is truly impressive considering the near-automatic diva status that comes with being an elite wideout these days.

Beware the Boilmakers? Our good friend Ben Jones takes a look at Purdue, and concludes that while they are set-up nicely for a "rebound" game, they also may pose a bigger challenge than expected. As bad as Purdue has looked this season, they have a miracle worker in Darrell Hazell. Hazell took over a depleted Kent State program (which means they win one game, as opposed to four with a senior-laden team) and turned them around midway through his first season. In his second, the only thing that prevented the Flashes from an Orange Bowl trip was a double-overtime loss against Northern Illinois. It takes a special person to take a program with a 40-year drought and get them on the verge of the BCS in two seasons.

Flipping Out Over State College It's always fun to hear an outsider's take on a Penn State gameday experience, and ESPN's Steve Bartman lookalike Adam Rittenberg described all off his favorite thing about taking in a Saturday in Happy Valley.

#THON Yesterday marked the 100-day countdown until the 2014 THON. If my math is correct, that means you have 99 days to help make an impact by getting involved with this world-class philanthropy event. If you need any motivation to get involved, here you go.

Poz Alert Perhaps my favorite Penn State player of all-time was named AFC Player of the Week for helping the Jacksonville Jaguars win their first game of the season with a an eight-tackle performance along with a forced and recovered fumble. Former Penn Staters Tamba Hali, Cameron Wake and Sean Lee have also won NFL Player of the Week honors this season.

Freeh vs. Spanier As expected, Louis Freeh and Graham Spanier have some not-so-kind words for one another. What can I say about all this that hasn't already been said?
