Big News Ahead?


#1
VictoryBellRing Hitting the road so no Internet but just got a tip on some big news. Check back tonight #PSUMBB

He said its not Buie related… Sasa is out for the season. There aren’t any injuries besides Graham - but I doubt that’d be big news. There is one scholarship to give, but I didn’t know ED was close with any major targets.

Any guesses?


#2

Lifetime extension!


#3

I see a kid just left Iowa State. Maybe we get one from them? :wink: He was only at 2.5ppg.


#4

LOL.


#5

No idea what it is. A junior college transfer eligible for spring semester?


#6

Interesting Evan, possibly. I don’t think a walk on would be “big news”. ED just won @ Indiana, if anything thats a lifetime extension like jjepsu92 said, not a firing.


#7

who is victorybellring?


#8

He’s just a Penn State student. Any basketball information that he would have would most likely be something related to the Nittany Nation. They probably have some sort of new promotion coming up.


#9

Isn’t it NGameday?

Depends on which of the Victory Bell guys we’re talking about. There are three of them (all students). NGameDay is one of them (Ben Jones).


#11

It’s probably something not that big, like a scheduling note.


#12

I’d bet on some sort of promotional tie-in with THON.


#13

VBR is a PSU blog: http://victorybellrings.com/ – and yes, NGameday is one of the bloggers, but I’m not sure if he tweets directly with the VBR Twitter. He tweets a lot on his own account.

SIAP: Did everyone see what Curley said about Ed?

Wow, talk about a reporter trying to spin some quotes to try and fit an agenda. Those quotes from Curley couldn’t have been any more generic. And add yet another reporter that doesn’t understand contract extensions.

Yep. What’s he suppose to say? “Our basketball program is in terrible shape, but recruits, don’t let that shy you away from visiting Penn State. Our coach isn’t cutting it, but me publicly stating this should have no detrimental affect on our recruiting”?? Seriously, you’re not going to see TC publicly bash ED, you just are not going to see it. Does that mean that he is as happy with the program as he appears to be publicly? I doubt it.

That’s about what I’ve come to expect from that “reporter”.


#18

Maybe the reporter’s point was that there shouldn’t have been an extension in the first place.


#19

The reporter seems to think that the extension was a direct result of the NIT win. In reality, the contract hit the point where we had to go one way or another. Either fire Ed, extend him, or make the same mistake that was made with Dunn and leave it all very much in limbo. Curley made the correct decision in going one way or another, and the extension itself should mean little when the time comes to make a decision on Ed’s status (all points that this reporter doesn’t make of course).


#20

How about playing all our home games in REC HALL? Then we could use the BJC for arena football. ;D
