SEC coaches are upset that someone is exploiting a loophole?

Penn State picked up another top recruit from PA. Now has 7 of the top 9 from PA.

So, I knew the James Franklin Era started Labor Day Weekend in Ireland.... but I guess I didn't realize that it starts at 8:30 AM Eastern Time.

Looks like I'll be getting my coffee on.

Supposedly the Penn State Football Story is back this year. Unclear if it is back in more than title though.

Any word on if the NCAA will ease the PSU bowl ban?

With Braxton Miller out for the year it sure would be nice.

2 of the 4 years have been served... with PSU fighting the NCAA to keep the millions of dollars in fines in the state of PA, I don't see the NCAA easing up at all on the bowl ban.

The lawsuit PSU filed is causing the NCAA more headache. It shouldn't have any link to the bowl ban, whatsoever, but it's naive to think that it doesn't.

PSU isn't exactly fighting it. They were added to the lawsuit brought by the State against their wishes and the BoT voted on a resolution that supported a goal of keeping the fine money in PA while remaining committed to the provisions in the consent degree.

I completely agree, and I'm not saying that the NCAA should take that into consideration at all, but I don't think that the NCAA is exactly rational.

I don't think keeping a (whether partially or fully) state funded university's "fine money" in state is unreasonable at all.

I agree completely. Not sure why it has to involve PSU filing suit, you would think that is a point they could negotiate unless the NCAA is taking a firm stance. If that is the case I have no idea why they would be.

Right, I'd see easing the bowl ban at Mitchell's discretion a way to slowly restore some of the sanctions like they did with the scholarships, nobody's expecting a complete reversal of the sanctions. I don't see Paterno's Ws (which I personally don't care about) being restored anytime remotely soon, or the $$$...which the NCAA cares most about.

I notice size 7-10.5 are sold out while 11-14 are still available... I wonder if there's a shoe size to manliness relationship.

You can get the UCLA ones and say they're the Super Panthers.

The PSU ones are my favorite color scheme for them.
