I get the value of conspicuous charity, but I like this style better.

Taliaferro, LeGrand to Captain Rutgers-Penn State Game

13

The former Penn State and Big Ten Powerhouse Rutgers players, forever linked by the injuries that left them paralyzed on the playing field, will serve as game captains for the Sept. 13 matchup between the two teams. Adam Taliaferro ran the Nittany Lions onto the field less than a year after his injury and believes Eric LeGrand will do the same for Rutgers sometime in the future. There will be few dry eyes in Piscataway before the 8pm kickoff.

Hackenberg less "intriguing" than "whoever starts at Texas A&M"?

18

It's as if The Onion took a stab at college football writing... This might be the least informed ranking of college quarterbacks published this year. Hack is ranked behind the likes of Gunner Kiel of Cincy and "whoever starts at Texas A&M".

Penn State Volleyball Is Preseason #1

25

Garnering 32 of the 60 first place votes, the defending national champion Nittany Lions were one of seven Big Ten teams in the top 25. NCAA runners up Wisconsin (#6), Nebraska (#7), and Purdue (#8) are the other B1G programs in the top ten; Texas (#2), Stanford (#3), USC (#5), and the Badgers all also received first place votes in the preseason poll.

UCF Names Redshirt Freshman Pete DiNovo Starting Quarterback

10

George O'Leary has named his starting quarterback more than two weeks ahead of the season opener against Penn State, choosing redshirt freshman Pete DiNovo ahead of true sophomore Justin Holman. DiNovo is more of a true pocket passer in the mold of former UCF quarterback Blake Bortles and will get the nod over the dual-threat option Holman.

2015 NWCA National Duals Set

7

Another year, another new format. For 2015, the NWCA National Duals will again feature 16 teams - but those 16 teams will each wrestle one dual on February 15th, with the 8 winners heading to Carver Hawkeye Arena on Feb 22nd (a Sunday, away from the Iowa state high school tournament). That's 3 duals in one day, if you make the finals. It should be great for the fans - an entire day of awesome wrestling, and hopefully BTN carries coverage again this year. But I'm not as certain it's in the best interests of the wrestlers. Plus, conference championships would be right around the corner.

The Athlon Sports All Freshman Team 2014

+

Andrew Nelson makes an appearance on the 2014 Athlon Sports All Freshman Team, as one of the 3rd team offensive linemen. Nelson has received great reviews out of camp, so he should be able to follow through on this accolade. Some may argue that other Nittany Lions could have made an appearance on these teams as well, but it's just a preseason list. Players like Saeed Blacknall, Chris Godwin, De'Andre Thompkins, Troy Reeder, Jason Cabinda, and Grant Haley all have the potential to show up on lists like these once the season concludes. There are a few other names on the list who are familiar to Nittany Lion fans. WR Ricky Seals-Jones played on Christian Hackenberg's 7 on 7 team at The Opening, prompting some to think about the possibilities of them playing together. OL Damian Prince was a Penn State target at one point. DL Derrick Nnadi was a Penn State target for quite some time before deciding to become a Seminole. And then of course, there's Jabrill Peppers. If you purchased your copy of We Are! 2014, you already know the story behind Peppers and Penn State. Let's revisit this list at the end of the season and see what changes!
