JoePa and the Lions are Big Ten Champs!

Since this space has previously been used to praise the accomplishments of various sporting teams, I can't, in good conscious, let another minute go by without congratulating the Penn State Nittany Lions on winning the Big Ten Saturday night with a rousing win over Michigan State. As many of you know, PSU hasn't been playing at the level that most Penn State fans have become accustomed to over the years. This year, lead by a group of seniors who just wouldn't quit, the Lions turned their fortune around, going 10-1. Save the two seconds mysteriously added to the clock against Mighigan, and this team would be undefeated. Either way, I don't think many people, if any, predicted a 10-1 record and a trip to a BCS bowl. Congratulations guys on an absolutely fantastic season. WE ARE!

Considering that NegativeMode saw fit to complain each time this site was used to tout the achievements of "various" teams (as I recall, it was only one, the World Series Champion Chicago White Sox), I will do the same and hereby protest.

On the subject of college football successes, on Saturday #1 USC won its 33rd game in a row, in a thrilling come-from-behind defeat of the Fresno State Bulldogs.
