Yeah, glad they found it before it was too late. Best wishes to him.

On another note, just 9 weeks until App State comes to the Beav to get a thorough beat down.

No Michigan style upset here. 8-)

Rumor has it that former ND running back CJ Holmes is coming to Penn State as a walk-on. He got into trouble for shoplifting and was kicked off the ND team. He has a sister attending PSU who will be receiving a track scholarship. He will have 3 years of eligibility remaining.

Apparently he's now enrolled at PSU as a student. I guess the question is will Franlin give him a shot. I don't know much about him. Anyone have any insight?
Alex Cora sucks. Mickey Callaway sucks. Baseball sucks. Everything and everyone just sucks. Is it football season yet?

From what I read, he MAY be able to earn a scholie after next year. Sounds like JF is giving him a chance. I believe Joe gave Ingram a chance after a similar incident. These kids are young and sometimes f up. If it happens again, hang him out to dry. Until then let's give the kid a break. It may be what he needs to turn his life around. Hope he is smart enough to take advantage of this opportunity.

Sad news. Per 247 Sports former QB Sean Schellenger was stabbed to death in Philly during a traffic altercation on Thursday. He played for PSU in 2000. :(
