Bringing Rutgers Back to Reality

This is why I like OTE...it's smart, snarky and funny, in a condescending football fan kinda way.

I made this. It may be helpful for you to sort out your rooting loyalties in college football. I base my loyalties as much on my feelings towards states as anything else.

Official 2014 Football Hype Video Released

30

Late yesterday, via James Franklin's twitter account, Penn State released the official hype video for the 2014 football season. It builds on this year's buzz word of "PSUnrivaled". Let us know your thoughts in the comments. Less than two weeks til Dublin!

James Franklin: "F**k it, dudes. Let's go bowling..."

15

ICYMI earlier today: James Franklin surprised his players by giving them the afternoon practice off to go for some well-deserved rounds of bowling. Needless to say, it was like watching 105 Nintendo 64 kids celebrating at once. It also gives me an excuse to remind you to mark it zero, Donnie is out of his element, 'Chinaman' is not the preferred nomenclature (Asian-American, please), and that we believe in nothing, Lebowski...Yep, that about does her.

Academic Fraud Under the Dome...Again

Looks like the domers will be forfeiting more than a few games.

Short Time Podcast: Jason Bryant and Coach Eslinger

5

This is an outstanding listen. Jason Bryant is the best wrestling journalist out there, and Coach Heath Eslinger of the Chattanooga Mocs is one of the thought leaders in the sport. These two talk about growing the sport of wrestling from the context of high school divisions and dual meets (with a little bit of National Duals). I've always been on Jason's side of this, but Heath won me over with some excellent arguments.

Social Media Accountability

Appears Herb is not the only coach laying a heavy Hand on kids who post crap on social media. If only they would do something about people who scream into their cellphones in public places . . .

Penn State and Joepa Set Up as Bad Guys on OTE

You just have to read this. Maybe the whiniest piece I've read so far. It's so bad that M1EK is actually defending Penn State in the comments.

Paul T. Stecko Family Donates $1M To Upgrade Lasch

50

Ask and ye shall receive. Coach Franklin caught everyone's attention when he mentioned that Vandy's interior decorations were better than Dear Old State's. The Stecko Family stuffed a cool $1M in Coach's pocket and said, "there - that ought to take care of it." The team locker room will now bear the Stecko Family name. >Sidenote to the link: how about the $2.2B total raised from a fractured alumni base as part of the "For The Future" campaign? Not too shabby.

Congrats to Franklin Regional's Josh Maruca, who committed to Zeke Jones and Chris Pendleton at Arizona State. Maruca is a rising senior at 145lbs, ranked #12 overall in PA by PAPowerWrestling, and ranked #5 at 145lbs by Flo, after an impressive 3rd place All-America finish at Fargo a few weeks ago. Maruca's a 3-time place winner at PIAAs (5th, 5th, and 3rd), with his eyes set on gold as a senior. Photo courtesy of WrestlersAreWarriors.com. Thanks, fellas!
