Re: Politics

The right to free speech / protest doesn't extend to the workplace - because none of us are highly prized, uniquely skilled athletes if we decided to go to our workplace and turn it into our own personal soapbox for political expression - and did so in a manner that potentially harmed relationships ...

Re: What's left of the 2017 baseball season

If Stanton is hitting 60 HRs a year when he's 40 that's when you know something is up.

Sale has 300Ks - big deal - if Chris Davis hadn't missed 25 games due to injury he'd have 300Ks too.

Re: Politics

I was on a self imposed leave from the Politics thread in order to avoid any negative tone to the board during what may be a potentially magical season for PSU. Can't have any bad juju. Note that I don't mind the give and take even when it gets heated - it's a good way for people to vent and get thi...

Re: Iowa Pre-Game

Apparently those folks are discounting that PSU did pretty well against Iowa last year and only lost one key starter on O, have reasonably replace starting losses on D and look stronger on special teams.

IMO the only advantage I see Iowa having vs last year is this being a night home game.

Re: What's left of the 2017 baseball season

If Harvey can manage a 5 - 9 record with a 5.74 ERA by end of July next year the Orioles will pick him up to shore up their starting rotation for the pennant drive.

Re: Iowa Pre-Game

This isn't a PSU team of old - by design. It's not a take your time, methodical, conservative, bludgeon an opponent into submission over the course of four quarters approach. This is the Top Gun, rockets blazing, scorched earth, 5 energy drinks team that vaporizes opponents. It's a different philoso...

Re: Sandusky: final twitches

Not ending in our lifetime. There were three top line news stories this week related to Sandusky scandal 1. "New" report of "what Joe knew" that contained nothing new and was already established fact and record 2. Schultz was released from prison 3. The story B&W just referen...

Re: Post-sPitt

Pitt and N&D were probably the two biggest rivalries for PSU when PSU was an independent. There was parity between the programs so games were competitive, the teams were all independents so they competed for bowl slots with each other and with Pitt you had the geographic factor that puts the two...

Re: Georgia State Pre-Game

I'd like to see Barkley get 300 yards on 4 carries and then take a seat. You hope this game gets reps for 2nd line guys to strengthen depth and it would be nice to see McS get back in sync with WRs.

PSU shouldn't have to worry ...... now Matt Rhule and Baylor - this would be a must win game.
