They say they’ve been forced to rename it.
[i]We’re going to have to call it something other than DeChellis
Penn State lost another close one, 67-65 to Michigan State last night. Despite outshooting the Spartans, the Nittany Lions were thoroughly dominated on the boards, as MSU recovered over 40 percent of their misses. PSU had a chance at the end but Talor Battle couldn’t get the rebound cleanly and as a result did not get a shot off before the buzzer. Penn State is 3-9 this season in games decided by 5 points or less (or that went to overtime). As a result, they rank dead last by Pomeroy Luck, which is such an incendiary term that it had been renamed degree of DeChellis, in honor of the Penn State coach whose teams have shown a knack for ranking high by this measure. But that’s all changed this season, which of course opens the debate as to whether the term “luck” might be apt after all[/i]
