Rahne can’t be faulted for taking a position that will benefit his family and his coaching trajectory, but he will certainly be missed in the locker room. Rahne won’t be the only Nittany Lions assistant to head to Norfolk, VA.
The more immediate aftermath is that Rahe won’t be available to call plays against Memphis — facing a coaching overhaul of its own — during the Cotton Bowl. Whether the Nittany Lions earned a better bowl game remains up for debate, but the Cotton Bowl will cap off what should be considered another successful season for the Nittany Lions.

Penn State basketball is officially back after Tuesday’s win over No. 4 Maryland. Nittany Nation had plenty of reason to celebrate, even if some felt that storming the court took things a bit too far.
Awful takes aside, we could see Penn State return to the top 25 for the first time in a long time as the Nittany Lions make their case to return to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in nearly a decade.

Maryland falls in State College.
The Nittany Lions WILL hear their name called on Selection Sunday.
