ICYMI, Pitt is #Better:

PennLive has a photo gallery from Saturday’s practice. Christian Hackenberg’s hair looks great.
Before that, Rant Sports declared Coach Franklin was a recruiting genius.
"Franklin is wrecking the recruiting trail in his first year at Penn State, and that may be putting it lightly. Counting the recent addition of Gonzalez, the Nittany Lions are up to 10 commits from the class of >2014. We officially have a specialist on our hands.
Bleacher Report is singing the praises of Coach Franklin’s recruiting too.
"Look at the recruiting they've been doing, and they haven't even been out on the road yet," Whitehall High School (Lehigh County, Pa.) head coach Brian Gilbert told Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter Mark Dent. "The recruiting has come to them."

And Finally, the NCAA is Still Ridiculous and No One is Surprised:
A Wall Street Journal reporter rebelled against the NCAA and attempted to drink out of a cat mug while covering the regional finals at Madison Square Garden. The cat mug, not being a paper Powerade cup, was confiscated. The Deadspin story is hilarious.
