Quick Reference; More PSU Football Game Times Announced.

Penn State has announced that the first 2 home games of the season (YSU, 9/4; KSU 9/18) will begin at 12pm.

The early start times are not surprising.  What is a little unexpected is that, while the YSU game will be on BTN, the Kent State game will be airing on the ESPN family of networks.

Levi Stress? Wide Receiver Levi Norwood Released from Scholarship.

Say it ain't so!  I was so looking forward to there being another Norwood on the Penn State roster this year!

Wide receiver Levi Norwood (brother of Jordan, son of Brian) had committed to the Nittany Lions' this past February...

Wah.  Sad face.


Men's Volleyball Championship - Live Blog Feed

Unfortunately the men couldn't quite muster the synchronicity they found in the semifinals - but, in their defense, the Stanford Cardinal was on a mission, had the home field advantage and the #1 player in the country.

Despite the not-so-great result on the court, we had a fun time live-blogging - check it out - after the jump...


PENN STATE MEN'S VOLLEYBALL - National Championship Live Blog!

The PSU Men's Volleybally team defeated CS Northridge tonight to advance to the NCAA Championships on Saturday. They swept in Northridge in three sets.

High Noon; PSU v illinois homecoming kickoff scheduled for 12pm.

Our homecoming game this year (vs illinois, October 9th) is scheduled for a 12pm (EST) kickoff.

meh - that helps me make the decision to NOT subject my fellow tailgaters to the Homecoming Tailgating Contest this year - that just doesn't leave enough time - well, enough time for the judges to get to all the sites and for there to be, as a result, fair judging.  Not that I've thought about this or - whatever.

Anyway - make a note on your Zug Schedules -
