They say we’re a cult. We say, you’re just jealous you aren’t in it.
I’M INTERNET YELLING BECAUSE I’M EXCITED.
7am wake up. Hammered by 7:30am. Cannot wait. Penn State is two-point underdogs too, might have to make a little wager.
Ps. Not sure the line about UCF being “ready for us” quite works, you know, since the whole they beat us last year thing, but either way…great promo.
247Sports - According to Sporting News’ Matt Hayes, two sources within the NCAA say if Penn State continues to “reach and go beyond” the recommendations laid out in the Freeh report, the Nittany Lions will have a “strong case” to get its bowl ban lifted next season.
Don’t tease me Matt Hayes. Do NOT tease me.

You never know. Volcanoes and what not. Just happy to wake up to this tweet today. Now, let’s go to work. PSU football in four days. Hasn’t hit me yet.

First thought, this is awesome. Second thought, why does Franklin have his little girl hitting blocking sleds? Seems kinda weird. Still awesome, but definitely kind of weird.
Instantly thought of:
Ps. Football less than a week away #HackCityBitch
Why we love sports: @taneybaseball. From all of us here at 94WIP, thank you. Thanks for representing Philadelphia.

I am PROUD of the Taney Dragons, they are the Champs of Phila AND Pa!! Please cheer our children and this team, very special group of kids!

Thank you, Taney, you crazy kids, you. You represented Philadelphia so perfectly, and man, that was one helluva ride.
1. These penalties are getting out of hand
2. Maclin won’t stop getting hurt and saying he’s fine. I can’t take it much longer.
3. That Shady screen-play (same play they ran to Sproles who tripped on the INT) is harmonious. Thing of beauty.
4. Defense looks solid
5. Alex Henery is atrocious, Eagles need a kicker badly
6. The Steelers are pretty bad, but Antonio Brown is a stud
7. Is it week 1 yet?
CBSSports - Yes, it seems that there’s been increased volcanic activity in Iceland, and there are concerns a volcano called Bárðarbunga could erupt. Do not ask me how to pronounce it because I have no idea.
The concern is that if the volcano erupts it could disrupt air travel to Europe just like in 2010 with another Icelandic volcano, Eyjafjallajökull (seriously, Iceland?), and over 10,000 flights to and from Europe were canceled due to the resulting ash spewed into the atmosphere. Penn State is currently scheduled to fly to Ireland on Tuesday Aug. 26, and the school is aware of the possible eruption.
So what would happen if the volcano does erupt and cancels the game? I don’t know. I’m guessing the game would be postponed to another time and played somewhere in the United States, possibly in Happy Valley, or maybe in Orlando.
A volcano though?
Hopefully the volcano doesn’t erupt, it would ruin a sick day and would really suck for everyone making a trip out of this game.
8:30am start time for everyone staying in Penn State — or in Philly with Made In America — makes for a pretty sweet drinking day. Don’t even both trying to sleep Friday night.
Look, I’m not one to bitch and moan over calls but this dude was atrocious. It was brutal. So bad, Karl Ravech had to mention it on the air. Dude’s strike zone was all over the place.
Anyway, no excuses. This is exactly what we needed to happen if Taney is going to win it all. Need to face adversity, get the loss out of the way, beat Chicago tonight and zero chance Las Vegas beats us again. Two in a row is tough in Little League.
Ps. Didn’t think our coach did a great. Guy has to score from third on double play, gotta be more aggressive on bases, especially as a big underdog and the home team late in the game.
Pps. Eric Lipson is by far my favorite player, ever
Ppps - MUSH
Rally time for the Penn LLWS baseball team. Pressure is on the Nevada team. The teams playing with confidence now. Finish it right.#rallycap
