Math Meets Football John Urschel has received plenty of attention for all of his amazing work off-the-field. Graduating early with a 4.0, earning a master's degree less than four years out of high school, getting research published in astronomy journals- you know, all that typical student-athlete stuff. Sometimes it gets lost in the shuffle, but Urshel is a pretty damn good offensive lineman too. ESPN recently ranked Urschel as the 21st best player in the Big Ten.
A Double Scoop of Philanthropy Have you enjoyed a fresh scoop of Peach Paterno during the past two years? If so, you helped contribute more than $4,000 to charity.
The Big Question Many Big Ten fans are still wondering who will be leading their offense when the season begins later this month. Tom Dienhart of BTN does his best to review all of the quarterback battles throughout the conference and predict the winner for each school. Check out who he foresees lining up behind center for the blue and white, and get a crash course on which quarterbacks Penn State will be facing this fall.
What Could Have Been Kevin Newsome has decided to hang up his cleats and will not return to the Temple Owls this fall. The former Penn State quarterback will graduate later in the summer and has decided to move on to other endeavors. I was always dumbfounded that Newsome never saw the field after being beat out by Rob Bolden for the starting job. His athletic ability was off the charts and could have contributed from all over the field. Either way, Newsome was known as an intelligent, high-character guy who will have a bright future outside of the game of football. Best of luck to you, 12.
Beard o' Beer A Cincinnati man proudly displayed his beer beard at a recent Bengals practice. Trust me, you will want to check this one out.
You think Penn State students have a difficult time securing tickets? Well, Indiana has already sold 15,500 student tickets for only 7,800 available seats this basketball season. Something tells me they're going to need an extra-large bottle of Excedrin in the AD offices in Bloomington. Former Penn State DL Anthony Adams has made a highly-entertaining rap video about ribs. Enjoy. Some jerkface punched the Mariner Moose. When reached for comment, Seattle superfan Jersey Nick Polak began sobbing loudly while shouting, "This is what it sounds like....WHEN DOVES CRY."
