Predicting Every Projected Top 25 Team's First Loss of 2014


It's Bleacher Report so it counts as gospel! We are gunnin' for you Schmuckeyes!

Home and Home with George Washington


Pretty good non-conference game for the men's basketball team in one of the best recruiting areas right now. We'll have games at Maryland, but getting another game in DC is a great idea.

Nothing to see here, NCAA. Nothing to see.


As a reminder, the NCAA has previous stated this was not their problem. I mean... if UCONN players fail classes it is a problem. If UNC players pass fake classes, then that's cool. If PSU has no NCAA violations, then... don't get me started.

Devon Still Reveals His Daughter is Fighting Cancer


Earlier this week, the Bengals DT took to social media and revealed that his daughter, Leshari "Leah" Still, is fighting neuroblastoma. Here at BSD, we're sending all of our best thoughts and prayers to Leah, Devon, and the entire Still family during this tough time.

Penn State Hosts Five-Star Prospect (Hoops Edition!)


Not everyday this happens. Pat Chambers played host to seven-foot Greek import Georgios Papagiannis of Westtown School (Norristown, PA) on Thursday. Papagiannis is not only considered to be a five-star prospect, but many experts have tipped him to be a lottery pick once he decides to turn pro. Now, while this is nice, and certainly a good indication of Chambers' recruiting prowess, don't get your hopes up to see Papagiannis end up in State College. First off, this *is* Penn State basketball, and he *is* a future NBA player, so the Nittany Lions will have to fend off interest from some of college basketball's elite programs; Kansas has been involved in his recruitment from the get-go, and Maryland is firmly in the mix as well. It is worth noting that Papagiannis is AAU teammates with Josh Reaves, PSU's top target in the class of 2015. Okay okay okay. I'm getting ahead of myself. In any case, today was a good day for Penn State hoops.

Penn State makes list of final 15 schools for four-star OT Matthew Burrell


Penn State remains in the hunt for yet another touted football recruit, making the cut on four-star offensive tackle Matthew Burrell's list of his top 15 schools, Burrell announced on Twitter last night. Burrell's alphabetical list also included Big Ten rivals Michigan and Ohio State, who many expect to ultimately land the 6-5, 290-pounders services.

Jealous of this cake


I am getting married this summer and my wife-to-be has already said no to this.

Franklin likely to get his new paint and carpets


Coach Franklin has been grousing a little to the media that Lasch building needed a little cosmetic work to get the "branding" where he wanted it. I am not sure how far 1.5 million goes in that regard but it sounds like a good start.

Welcome to Uncle Toad's Scarlet Ride
