Mother Nature is a real bitch sometimes and she reared that ugly head in the Oklahoma City metro area over the past two days, the biggest damage taking place in Moore area where houses were flattened and two elementary schools were destroyed. SB Nation's OU site Crimson and Cream Machine has taken up the cause in getting donations for the victims of the tornado. If you have a few bucks for them or for the Red Cross, every bit helps.
PA vs. NCAA: A judge heard oral arguments yesterday from both the NCAA and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in a hearing to determine whether the court will throw out Governor Corbett's lawsuit against the collegiate athletics oversight group. Yvette Kane, who is hearing the case, said she would rule in a few weeks after synthesizing arguments from both parties. The Commonwealth once again contends that the sanctions are doing harm to the economy that depends on Penn State football. Pennlive also has quotes from the plantiff's lawyers, saying that they got off to a good start.

A new QB14: Christian Hackenberg will be wearing a number with a lot of history behind it when he gets to campus later on this summer.
Todd Blackledge and John Shaffer both won national titles while wearing #14 at Penn State and Chuck Fusina was a first-team All-American while donning it. Lately, it has become synonymous with mockery after Anthony Morelli wore it from 2004-2007, mainly due to the fact that he couldn't come up in big spots even though he graduated while holding multiple Penn State quarterbacking records. Let's still hope for another national champion to wear it, though.
Jabrill Peppers Rhymes: Penn State recruiting target Jabrill Peppers, who will announce his college decision in the next few days, released a music video for his latest rap "Don't Take It Personal". Kid has some talent. Let's hope it doesn't take him away from the field, though.
Another Run-On: Kyle Alston, a versatile player from Robbinsville High in New Jersey, has decided to run-on at Penn State as part of Bill O'Brien's ever-expanding non-scholarship program. Alston can play running back, wide receiver, defensive back, kicker, punter and returner. The Times of Trenton has the story on him.
In Scores Of Other Games: ESPN's Big Ten Blog says that Allen Robinson and Mike Hull are Penn State's two most indispensable players.... Pennlive interviewed GREGGGGGGGGGG if you stomach him.... McKeesport's Delvon Simmons is transferring from Texas Tech (2012: 27 tackles, 6 TFL, 2 sacks) and Penn State is on his list of greener pastures.... #FIURCHAMBRES
