  1. I know people are going to say Penn State is overrated because of the weak schedule, but as a PSU student, I’m just happy they’re getting attention and are dominating inside and out.

    What a magic carpet ride for PSU sports this year (football, hockey, and wrestling all Top 5)!

    • They’ve beat some of the worst teams in college hockey and that makes them a great team apparently. Let’s see Penn State play teams like UMass Lowell, BC, BU. All of those teams would kick the snot out of PSU. 2-1-1 is their record against ranked teams (St. Lawrence and Notre Dame).
