Blue/White Game 2008 - It's not too early to start planning

If you haven't made your travel arrangements yet - you really should - the Penn State Football Spring Scrimmage is less than 80 days away!

The weekend is guaranteed to be full of fun and excitement -

the Penn State Baseball team and Fergie (no not Eugenie's mum) will kick off the weekend Friday night (April 18th) - The Baseball team will host Indiana at 6:35pm (individual game tickets go on sale today) - And Ms. Ferguson will be performing in the Bryce... no wait, she'll be performing in BEAVER STADIUM (!?!?!?) as part of the "Gridiron Bash" - a nationwide event being hosted at and around various schools' spring games - tickets for the Fergie concert were to go on sale on January 25th - no sure if they're sold out - the sale date is now listed as "TBA". Here's a little preview of what to expect

I really have no idea.

Saturday, April 19th, is, of course, the Blue White game at 2pm - complete with player photo/autograph opportunities before the game. Parking and admission to the game are free - so it's a great time to test all your new tailgating gear and recipes - and get to see some practice football as well.

The baseball team also has a game Saturday afternoon (again hosting Indiana).

We'll have more information and discussion regarding Blue White weekend as the weeks roll by...

Other quick bits...

Football Recruiting is winding down/getting interesting - as National Signing Day nears and Terrelle Pryor announces that he might delay his commitment announcement - and PSU has picked up two more promising verbals.

The Men's Volleyball team is doing well - obviously inspired by the success of the Ladies team, they're currently ranked #2 in the country and win their 800th program win on Monday. They head to New Jersey this weekend for a match against NJIT on Saturday.

The Men's Gymnastics team is currently ranked #1! They host top ten ranked Minnesota on Saturday.

The Wrestling team suffered a bit of a slump after the National Duals - but they've held on to the #8 national ranking - tonight they go up against Northwestern, in Evanston and on Sunday they visit Illinois.

Only one more month of basketball - we'll just leave it at that.

my memory is foggy from b&ws past-is it always at 2 pm?

It has been for the past few years - ever since they started the "official" autograph session before the game.

I'm dissapointed that the first concert in Beaver Stadium is Fergie who strikes me as a completely disposable "star" that will not be remembered four years from now.

For me, i see it as a signal that the end is near. Joe eventually even muscled out graduation from the stadium.

The fact that any concert - especially one so, as you say, disposable, is a clear indication that Joe's influence is waning. Or maybe he and Sue are big fans of Fergie's London Bridge (will now drink heavily in attempt to remove any mental image)
