First of all, I have to admit to being terribly nervous about this post. I mean, it's Success with Hyperlinking. I can't count the number of different ways I can screw this up.
Anyway, if you were anywhere near a computer, tablet, smartphone, or whatever it is kids these days use to get online yesterday, then you're probably aware of this little comment from some NCAA attorney. While I have plenty of thoughts, you're probably better off just jumping straight to a fantastic GIF PARTY in the comment section (and PennLive has a full recap of yesterday's court drama here).
In actual football news and whatnot, my old colleague Barry Leonard over at VBR has been profiling the new staff, including Ricky Rahne yesterday. Head on over and check out the other coaches, and let Barry know I sent you. I think you'll get a discount on your next purchase, or something. Jeff Rice, who has been on the PSU beat so long that he was the Collegian football writer back when I was a freshman, took a look at 5(ish) Nittany Lions that have a great shot to be drafted into the NFL in coming years. You are going to be shocked at who is #1 on that list.
Linebackers for the ladies, giant TVs for the guys:

On the recruiting front, Rivals updated their Top 100. Recent commits Brandon Wimbush and Sterling Jenkins both moved in the updated rankings, with the New Jersey QB leaping an impressive 111 spots to 92nd nationally, with Jenkins falling 35 spots to 69th. Here are are the biggest movers, and the entire list. Virginia OL Austin Clark, a PSU target, is also set to announce his college choice next month, but it appears the Lions are out of it. Meanwhile, OL Grant Newsome is getting closer to a decision ($). Lastly, Audrey Snyder has a great look at Jenkins, which includes a nice dose of #LOLPitt.
Elsewhere on campus, the baseball team turned a triple play on Friday. Twice, which earned top spot in the SportsCenter Top 10 that evening. If only the worldwide leader didn't hate Penn State, then it would have ranked even higher.
