Blue White Football Podcast #35

After a disappointing week for the Nittany Lions Ryan & Mike are back to discuss the latest conservative performance by the Penn State offense and what changes need to be made. Join us as we breakdown the many problems that face PSU as the season rolls on and what a difference a week makes when it comes to our perspective on the team. The guys tend to differ on their opinions on what happens to the offense from here on out and they also look forward to the upcoming game against the Illini. Once again, we are working on posting the shows earlier in the week and we appreciate you bearing with us as we transition to the real world schedule.

Blue White Football Podcast #34

The Penn State Nittany Lions are looking for their first win over the Michigan Wolverines since Wally Richardson and Curtis Enis led the way in a 29-17 victory back in November 1996. Join Mike & Ryan as they breakdown the matchup that will dictate the rest of the Nittany Lions' season. Will PSU break the streak and have a chance to run the table? Or will it be another conservative performance where Penn State tries not to lose rather than win the game. Tune in to find out and check back later today as our new co-host, Mark Loucks, helps us evaluate the rest of the Big Ten through 3 games and how PSU matches up against them.

Blue White Look At the Big Ten

With the Big Ten season starting tomorrow, Mike and our new co-host Mark Loucks take a look at the rest of the conference and how the Nittany Lions stack up against each team after three games. It is never too early to get an idea of the competition that lays ahead for Penn State and we give a team by team breakdown of what they have done and where each team is likely headed. Plenty more to come from the Blue White Football Podcast and check back next week for our reaction to what will hopefully be a big Penn State WIN.

Penn State 2007 Gladiator Video

On the eve the Nittany Lions' must win game against Michigan we wanted to post the 2007 version of the PSU Gladiator video. Big thanks goes out to PSUfootball1 Youtube user for posting this. We are actually working on getting a few higher quality versions of the highlight videos, so we hope to have those for you in the near future. Michigan may have Russell Crowe on sidelines but the Lions' have easily one of the best pump up videos in sports history.

If You Were Wondering...Yes the Refs are from Michigan

Run Up The Score has an enlightening and disturbing post regarding the "rumored" replay official for this upcoming game against the Wolverines. I was feeling optimistic but now it seems that it is almost a guarantee that the refs will once again screw Penn State out of a win. Take a look at the whole Post, but the key is the biography of this weekend's replay official Dick Honig:

"He worked as an on-field official for 22 years in the Big Ten and now works in a supervisory role and replay official for the conference while also living in Ann Arbor. He’s a 1963 graduate of the University of Michigan with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Kinesiology. He was an All-Big Ten shortstop on the Wolverines national championship baseball team in 1962. He coached for ten years at Michigan as an assistant basketball coach and assistant baseball coach.

One area of Dick’s office is a tribute to the University of Michigan. A picture with an aerial view of the stadium, several inscribed baseball bats, and the famous “Block M” memorabilia are immediately visible."

I am honestly baffled if this is being allowed. How can the conference let someone with so much invested in one of the teams be a part of the crew which can play such a huge part in the outcome? Hopefully word will get around and changes will be made before Andrew Quarless does a tap dance in the endzone and is then whistled for being out of bounds. (Yes there would be an excessive celebration penalty as well but at least the touchdown would stand)

New full-length podcast on the way!

Blue White Football Podcast #33

It took us some time but Ryan & I are finally back together for a brand new edition of the Blue White Football Podcast. This week we take a look back at the Lions' season opening win versus the Golden Panthers of FIU and our thoughts on Michigan's loss. We also preview the Notre Dame game this weekend where the Lions will look to take out their frustrations from last year on brand new Irish QB Jimmy Clausen. We are still working out some kinks with our new system for recording the show as we figure out the best way to take full advantage of our microphones and technology. Enjoy the show and a fantastic weekend of Penn State football. (We also want to thank sophomore ComRadio Broadcaster Tommy Devito for helping us get audio from last week though we couldn't use it, Tommy will be our on campus source to continue our coverage of Penn State Football.)

News from Notre Dame Practice


Terror Alert at Notre Dame. South Bend, IN -

The Notre Dame football practice was delayed nearly two hours this morning after a player reported finding an unknown white powdery substance on the practice field. Head coach Charlie Weis immediately suspended practice and called the police and federal investigators. After a complete analysis, FBI forensic experts determined that the white substance unknown to the players was the GOAL LINE. Practice resumed after special agents decided the team was unlikely to encounter the substance again this season.

Jimmy Clausen better get used to this position for a Notre Dame QB

The latest edition of the podcast will be posted tomorrow night. We apologize for the delay in this week's show as both Ryan and I are figuring out our work schedules to find a regular time to get the show up. The shows starting next week will be posted on a more regular schedule similar to last season's set up. The above was posted on a facebook group I saw and thought I would share it, hilarious. New podcast tomorrow reviewing the Lion's opening win and taking a look ahead at the Jimmy Clausen led Irish. I don't think there was a better piece of news this week than hearing that Clausen would be sacrificed to Dan Connor and Sean Lee!

Beaver Stadium Celebrates Michigan Loss!

We're going to have a new podcast posted later this week, but I wanted to post this YouTube video taken inside Beaver Stadium right after Michigan lost to ASU. It is such a pleasure to see a team that has had so much help in last second games against PSU finally get what they deserve. I hope you all got a chance to see the game and hopefully you had a few Michigan fans at the bar where you were watching the Lions BEAT their week one cupcake opponent, so you could enjoy their anguish. Check back later this week for our full recap of the FIU game and our preview of the Quarterbackless Fighting Irish.
